Hello to All

Hello, brand new members and introducing ourselves. We're Robert and Yolanda from San Antonio Texas, and we just put a deposit down on a 2015 Escape 17B. I've been searching all sorts of threads on the forum, and I want to say thank you for all the great information and tips!

We have not yet completed our build sheet, so most of my newbie questions will be along the lines of what we should get/what we can live without. I've already read alot of good material on this subject, but like all newbies, I have a ton of questions.

I'll post in the appropriate area, and thanks in advance to all you experienced owners who can help us during this exciting time.

I would encourage everybody to put their location in the profile section, as you have done.
It helps a lot when answering questions ( such as do I need AC ?).

Oh, no...not another Texan! Maybe you can get ETI to open a branch production facility down there as your numbers seem to be increasing exponentially.

Welcome!

True Karen!
Maybe if the Casita wasn't so butt ugly on the inside we'd have went that way. It's only 3.5 hours to their factory from here.

Just couldn't see myself surrounded by shiny white fiberglass, fake wood and carpeted walls....lol

My wife and I live in North Carolina, but have family in Dallas. We went for a tour of the Casita factory also. When we asked about a factory install of led lights, we were told that we could install after the build. Seemed like a waste to us. We picked up our 19 on May 2 and are working our way back east. Just spent 2 nights in Eisenhower Park in TX. We loved having the AC, digital thermostat and extra insullation.

I've owned 3 Casitas, one brand new.

I hate that rat fur on the walls, is all I will say.

Casitas don't have rat fur.. they have carpet. Scamp has the rat fur, which is a marine headliner material and is really quite nice IMHO.

Well, I have to concede that maybe technically that's not what it's called, but it sure seems like it should be.

hahahahaha, agree. But truly the marine headliner material is like what you have on the ceiling of your motor vehicle. Short pile fabric, not looped carpet.
