This is what Quote looks like

This is what happens when you hit the quote button. If you hit the reply button, it's the same, except with no quotes in it. I've never used the multiple quote button yet.

Great explanation by Robert, as usual.
Also, if you want to reply to only one member you can send them e-mail from that same list of actions attached to their name... if they have allowed that in their preference settings.

Ron and Dawn, just fire away with questions you have about certain items on the build sheet you might be interested in. There are so many knowledgeable people willing to help, it's just amazing. By the time your build sheet is due you will be confident yours is truly designed for your needs. (and all the knowledge you gain in the mean time.......).

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

I tell people to get anything they think they might possibly want. The exchange rate is so good that you will wish you could find such a deal on any items that you leave out and then decide to get later.

Then there are the additions that are best done by Escape that you would not want some RV shop doing that does not know fiberglass or Escapes.

I am a first time trailer purchaser myself. Escape 19 May 2017. There is a ton of information on these forums and on the Internet. It all depends on what kind of experiences you plan to have and what you feel comfortable with, and what you can do without. Sarah in the sales department said she would walk me through each of the options I am considering. Welcome to the family!
