Ordering 19' need info

Hello all,

I have been looking at the listed options and have them narrowed down to the ones I want. The question I have for the forum is what are the unlisted option that the folks at Escape are able/willing to do?

Just wonder what other options folks have been able to get done not on the list as I want to make sure I get it done right the first time.


Thanks for any info you all are willing to give.

The unlisted options are just about anything you can talk Reace into . I had them add a cell phone antenna & amplifier & a back up camera (I supplied them & they added them). I know some individuals have had surge suppressors & inverters added, different countertops & fabric for the cushions, shelves in the cabinets, lights in non stock locations, different air conditioners, etc.

If there is something you went, a call to the factory will let you know if it is possible. The Escape is as close to a custom trailer as just about anyone makes.

Welcome to the site, lots of fun figuring out what you want in your trailer, then even more fun ahead when you get to use it.

If you do some searching and reading you will find lots of things people did, many of which were just a one off. Way too many to list actually. Like Jon said, if you have an idea you would like to incorporate, just ask Reace. He will either make it work, or let you know why he can't. Not sure what pricing is like now, but I found any upgrades I made to be a very reasonable cost.

I like the cell antenna/amp and backup camera, might have to do those.

Thanks for they replies! I will keep looking around, to see others ideas for their trailers. Plus I will keep looking at the photos on the site. Lots to see and read.

Thanks again.

E-Z-lube axles, plywood reinforcement on certain walls for ease of attaching televisions or other heavy items, digital thermostat for heat and a/c.

I was wonder about the Ez-lube axles. How do they differ from the standard axle they use? Is it the same axle with the "Ez-lube" part attached at the end of the axle?

I will have to put reinforcement on my list.

Thank you for the information. My list keeps getting bigger.

They are completely different axles, not just an attachment to the stock axle.
