Although you titled this thread as "Done", it is just the beginning, now the fun starts. You are never done with your Escape, you can always find something to change or add that will make it a little better. Just today I added an adjustable LED light with night light option. Tomorrow I'll find something else to "fix"

I like the LED night light idea too.

I also removed the counter extension. It made making the bed more difficult as well as being in the way of whoever slept on that side.

For some reason I assumed the access door would be on the side of the trailer. But now that you mentioned it I did see an older 17 at Escape that looked like it had an oval panel riveted on the front of the trailer where the vinyl protectors snap on.

I also wanted to avoid putting too many holes in the water proof shell

It's been almost two weeks now and it still works perfect for us. We did however replace the cushions with a one piece foam mattress. I look forward to putting the cushions in the house. I'm tired of moving them about when we camp.

I'm also thinking of re installing the counter extension beside the two person dinet at the front. It would however cover the USB charging ports when it's down. We'll see.

We sleep with our heads on the passenger side of our 17. I'm on the outside and my feet go under the counter extension.
I can reach up and turn up the thermostat while still under the covers. When the trailer is warm, I'll leap up briefly and put the coffee water on. The Melita thermos and filter, cups etc. are all prepped, some on the counter extension.

Hmmm some good ideas there. We sleep the other way as the counter is a convenient place to put eye glasses ect. As well you can keep an eye on the door if your the paranoid type.
It is a little chilly though when you have to reach up and down to turn the heater on.

Depends if you have a gutter to hang these on, but Rubbermaid makes several in different sizes and shapes, some plastic, some metal.

Took me a couple years to remove the labels on the bathroom sink.
It peels off.
