Having old photos of options is not helpful, if not for this forum I don't think many of us would know what we are getting or could get when we purchase our Escape. Having said that I do appreciate very much ETI's willingness to customize more than their competitors. I am grateful this forum is so willing to help and answer our questions. As there is no where else to go with trailer ordering questions regarding all the options not published on their web site.

Yup, the 12V upgrade ($50) to a group 29 battery includes a really nice bigger vented installed box. I did that to keep my options open..........

The group 29 upgrade was (is) listed on our 2015 build sheet. I wonder if they've discontinued it for 2016? I'm thinking you're going to have to ask someone at ETI about it.

Hi Everyone, GOOD NEWS.

Today Kim and I ordered and made deposit on a 21ft model.
We were planning on doing so in 13 days when we visit ETI but the 2016 model inventory of 21's might not exist then.

Our build schedule says it hatches 22 November 2016, 8 days before I retire !!!

Thank you all for all your help and friendly advice.
The members here feel like family and I am very proud to be par of this community.

Good move Santiago/Kim. You will find many here to help with your questions on options to configure your 21. The long wait is worth doing.

Congrats, but how did you do this on a Sunday, let alone a holiday weekend?
Either way, welcome to our little family....

I think that The Escape office was open on Saturday morning- noticed that when I was on their site yesterday to check for the address to mail a cheque.

Thank you Jim,

They are open Saturdays 10a to 2p (May - September)

We will visit Friday 18th sometime early afternoon due to our arrival at SETAC airport Friday morning. I asked to return Saturday and will get factory tour at noon.

We are spending night in Chilliwack.

The group 29 upgrade is still available, but it is now $75 instead of $50.
