Welcome to the forum stormforce. I joined back in December but have only recently posted a few times now. What I have done is read a lot of posts. I've learned quite a bit by reading the various discussion topics. Plenty of good information here from folks who've been Escape owners for a while. Congrats on choosing the 21 model!

Exciting times ahead! Congratulations!!! Probably ready by springtime? At least you know what to do this upcoming winter: sweating over build sheet. Best wishes with all the decision making!

Welcome aboard!

And congratulations on your new trailer. We've had our 21' for three years and appreciate its design features and build quality more with each trip.

If you have any questions about factory options in the short term or need to take some interior measurements don't hesitate to contact us.

thank you for the welcomes everybody!!!
it is exiting to know we are getting quality for sure !, we are going from truck tent,, to 21! , pretty much have build sheet figured out , but i would like any opinions on one being the foam insulation option underneath , we live a generally mild climate year round and draining all tanks in winter .... is it really necessary,, as my only concern is being able to access any wiring or what have you in the future ? any insight on this would be appreciated

We picked up our 21' in mid-September of 2014 and camped the first night at Manning Park, where it went down to -5C. We were glad we had the foam insulation on our tanks, and have been several subsequent times because we camp mainly in the spring and fall, often at elevation in the mountain parks.

We live near you in the Comox Valley and always winterize our tanks.

Foam Insulation

Storm,
In our three years, we haven't needed to access anything covered by the foam. My understanding is it's not too hard to remove some, if necessary, then replace with similar stuff.
