Hi Robert,
Another San Antonio owner here but we have a 19. We would be more than willing to have you come and look at ours for possible ideas but that will have to wait till October until we return home. We are currently in Valdez, AK heading north. We live off of Boerne Stage Rd and I 10. What part of town are you in?

Oh and welcome!!!

Steve

Thanks Steve. I'm finding out there are many more south Texans who own an Escape than I previously thought. We live off Prue Road between Fredericksburg and Babcock, NW side. Bet you're missing some Rudy's right now, but the view more than makes up for it! Happy trails.

When I had a Scamp I just hated people calling it "rat fur". Now that I have an Escape it's......rat fur

My Scamp has rat fur, I like it. Pete Dumbleton coined that phrase years ago... he truly traveled with pet rats. Pete was a valued member of FiberglassRV, a full-timer in his Scamp and has since passed of cancer. RIP Pete... rat fur lives on!

I'm sure Scamp appreciates Pete's contribution to the lexicon.

Welcome to the forum Robert & Yolanda. My wife and I are Escape owners over in Brenham. You'll want to consider building your Escape to handle our warm weather. If you haven't started, spend some time looking back in the archives. You will find a wealth of information that will help you make decisions on your build. We welcome you to also join our Texas Owners Group.

Would love to join Dave. Thanks for the invite. We are going to order the extra insulation and thermal windows too.

Add the "Texas Fan" to your list of options. This will help your refrigerator operate in Texas heat and humidity. Thermostat controlled AC is another good option for here. And yes...extra insulation/double pane windows for sound and heat.
