Iowa 17B

Well, after much debate my wife and I have decided that the Escape 17B is the right fit for us. I will rely heavily on the Escape community in the coming year to help me with the build sheet. I've done a search for solar installations, and I can't find any close up pictures of the mounting brackets on the roof. If someone could direct me to a previous thread I would appreciate it.

I don't, but I hope you're coming to the Mississippi River Rally so you can see lots of Escapes.

The pictures show the add on "FIX" for the PV collectors that were already installed with epoxy. Check with ETI for the mounting system used on 2017 trailers.

Welcome to Escape

Madeline and I picked our 17B up in April. Finally got to spend eight nights with it in July and enjoyed every minute. We will be at the Mississippi rally, look forward to seeing you.
