new guy

Hi,

I recently put my down on a Escape 21. I'm sure I'll have some questions for you all, and wanted to start by saying hello. I'm getting pretty close to retireing after working at the same job now for 35 years and something like this is what i've wanted for a long time. Raised a family and now it's just wifey and I and we are looking forward to getting out and spending some time away from the homestead. Thanks for this service.

Mike

Welcome to our little Escape world, Mike, remember the only bad question is the one left unasked.

Hi Mike! Welcome and congratulations! We're on the central coast too - Morro Bay to be precise. I'm sure you'll have a fabulous time in your new 21'. When does it hatch?

Hi Mike,
Our 21' has a completion date of May 22 - just two days after yours!
However, I think we're going to wait until later in June to pick it up. My wife doesn't like cold weather and touring Yellowstone, Glacier, and the other parks up that way doesn't appeal to her until the daytime highs at least approach the 70s (F).

So Ray, I guess you will not be getting the cold weather package of thermal windows and extra insulation and spray foam underneath, but definitely be getting the a/c package, preferably the larger Dometic unit??
