New order of a 2017 19ft

My wife and I just secured a build date of July 2017. Any suggestions of options to include would be appreciated. Thanks, Ron

Welcome to the Escape forum! Congratulations with your decision to take the plunge to own one of these marvellous trailers! You might want to share what kind of traveler you are and what you are interested in, and I am sure you will get lots of advice/help.

Welcome Ron, I'm waiting for my 3rd Escape so the build sheet has been completed 2 times before.

Welcome. We are in a similar situation as you. Thinking about build sheet options etc. I agree with Marry, a lot depends on what type of adventures you see yourself experiencing and how you plan to experience them. We live about an hour north of you in Ohio. Small world. We are due to have ours completed in February of 2017.
I suggest just trying to read as much as you can on this forum, and there is a ton of it. There is a wealth of information, opinions and experience to be shared. Good luck and have fun.

Welcome to the forum, siteseer! As has been mentioned, almost all options depend on your camping style and only you know what that is. In just about every case, you can use the Google search function to search for a particular option (say, extra insulation or custom flooring) and there will be a thread on it with both pros and cons. And there are pros and cons to every option. Since the list can add up quickly, both in number and in expense, chose wisely. I don't think there is one thing on the option list that is a must-have (that's why it's an option). Only the Escape trailer is a must-have in my opinion.

Again, welcome.

I'm aware of several 21' Escape owners in Ohio, if you contact the factory, they can arrange a showing so you cans first hand the quality.

Thanks to all for the welcome, Dawn and I are both retired and looking forward to some longer trips not knowing what we will get into.

Thanks Marry my wife Dawn and I are retired and hope to see all parts of this great country. Having been a boy scout and the oldest of 5 boys, I have done a good bit of camping. I am not sure how this forum works what does quote and quote all mean? I am assuming Reply goes just to that one person. Thanks Ron

Hi Ron,

Quote means you want to include that person's post in your reply. Multi-quote is a bit more complicated - it's used when you want to quote from more than one post. You select multi-quote for each post you want to include, then in the bottom of the thread you select "post reply".

Whether you quote or not, your replies are seen by all because they become a part of that thread. If you don't want your reply seen, send a private message to that person instead, by clicking on their name and selecting "send a private message to...".
