One of the hardest things about choosing options, for those with little RV camping/towing experience, is trying to envision the type of camping you will do. And then, in our case anyways, we expand the type of camping we want to do once we: learned how to tow and back-up the damn thing, once we had experienced the full-hook up private campgrounds and grown to love our provincial parks without any hookups.... we then ventured out onto BC Recreational Sites which tend to be in more rugged areas.
So we were delighted to have gone "all in" when choosing options: thermal package, solar and more. Now I kind of wish we had raised the trailer so we could travel more rough roads. All this to say for those choosing options try to envision how things may change as you grow into Escaping with your trailer.
FYI we chose the airconditioner and have used it 2x in two years. Glad to have it because as we age things may become more sedate as we head towards warmer climates with full hookups. No inverter thanks to advice from this forum. By the way, the Forum can cost you money as you learn about all the things you decide you "must have" for you trailer.
Enjoy the journey Larry
