Well if I can take the standard Dometic boxed new, yes I would sell it when I get home.

My recollection is that Hotfishtacos finally sold his Dometic for $200. He had it up for sale here and on FGRV.

His was a used 4.3, or maybe 5.0.

Santiago,
Yes, it was disappointing. If a novacool install was an option I would have done that. But now I'll keep the installed original Dometic and maybe later consider a Novacool swap. I did not plead a case and maybe Reese could be persuaded in the future

I did learn that Escape is producing a trailer a day, and once out of the mold it's 11 days to complete with 15 or so inthe production line at any given time.
I asked Reese if he could run A pair of #6 wire for the "solar pre wire" option. He very kindly said that thick of wire to work with would slow his installers down too much, so no.

Try ordering an Airstream and asking for a different air conditioner, they only sell you the one they install, if you want a different one, you will have to have the dealer swap it out at your cost and no trade in for the unused one.

Santiago, they will provide the fridge for you, since you're paying for it anyway. You would of course have to have a lot of cargo space to haul it away - as the box is BIG. Since it's a fully warrantied and new fridge, you could EBay or Craigslist it for well over $1000 no problem.

Hi Jim, yes the big boys have those policies and need to due to their size and business/manufacturing structure, although if they really wanted to they could be a little flexible. I know from my inquiry long long ago with Casita they are probably worse. That's what drove me to Scamp long ago when I decided to try molded fiberglass.

Aside from a great trailer ETI designed and manufactures, one of their great appeals was customization and customer service. It's inevitable that would change to some degree as they grow. I am willing to accept that reality and keeping my eye on the ball on this purchase as I think I am buying a very good shell, floor plan and reasonably good quality.

Reace is very careful about trailer weight and tongue weight and towing issues. Anything that may impact the trailer's performance or structural effectiveness is carefully looked at.

No worries here Jim, the two refrigerators have similar weights and share same location.
