Smile TV purchased, next step Escape 19!

I've been enjoying reading all the posts. After checking out a 19' @ Eggscursion, I changed my requirements up from the 17b. That made me examine my future TV. Yesterday, we picked up a new GMC Acadia - 5200 tow capacity. Now we can finalize the 19' options. Hopefully a business trip to BC is in the cards. Hope to order with a completion during the (reduced cost) winter. Can't wait to join the Escape community.
Kevin

Welcome to the forum and our "Escape World", what options are you contemplating? Any questions, please ask. Glad you came to the "Eggscursion", we all had a nice time.

Now that you got the TV, are you going for satellite or cable ready or airwaves?

I think Kevin was referring to the new Towing Vehicle.

I'm at the very early stage. I've got my list of A - must have, B - nice to have, C - a luxury. Some items will move from B to A if they improve resale value and ease of selling in the future.Sometimes it's just the "use of cash" for the short term, pays back in the long term.

Nice! My idea of TV when camping is a good campfire.

What you are saying, is that you will find a way to justify these options either way. I think we all do that.

OK - today I pulled the plug and placed my order for a 19' - early 2014! Just at the early stages of options, but looking at Solar with various energy saving options, AC, insullation pkg, extra opening windows in bath & over sink, dual 6V batteries, aluminum rims (just because!), etc. Couple questions for those reading - how much value in spray foam? I live in the south and am more concerned with high temps than cold. Also is the surge protector just that or is it more than just to prevent damage due to surges? Thanks for everyones posts - I will keep reading and adjusting my final build throughout the year!
