We did it - new 21

Well we did it! Ordered a 21 - due in early December. This forum has been very helpful in making our decision. Also thanks to wonderful people from Chillawack who showed us theirs - you know who you are. We met them in our local Walmart parking lot and had a great tour and chat. Looking forward to our camping next year. Any recommendations from other 21 owners for our build sheet. Things you ordered and liked. Things you didn't like?

I'm getting the optional window over the nightstand, saw it on another unit and loved the look of it, also the frameless and power awning is a beautiful combo.

Congratulations!! You'll love your new Escape. And you're going to find that there are varying opinions on options when it comes to 'customizing' the Escape so take them all in and then decide what makes YOU happy.

Some things we've opted for (some new and some we had on our 19'): The window over the drawer stack. The U-shaped dinette. The Springfield pedestal table. The 'old' Carefree awning. Sliding thermal windows. Custom sink (never liked the 'stock' sink ... too small). Custom kitchen faucet (one of the first things we replaced in our 19'). Stove/oven combo (didn't have it before so thought we'd give it a try). And so many more ...

Congratulations, we are sure you will have lots of fun choosing your options.
It was a pleasure to have to have shown you our trailer, you’ll enjoy being Escapies.
The solar panel and dual 6 volt batteries have given us a lot of freedom in our travels.
Have fun and again congratulations.

Congratulations! We just picked up our 21 in May and we really like it. My two favorite options are the U-Shaped dinette and the window over the drawer stack. We also got a Lagun Table Mount which I installed as soon as we got home. We are very happy with the Lagun. I wish I had told ETI not to install the standard table pedestal mounts in the floor. No matter what options you choose or don't choose you are getting a great trailer. Have fun with the process.

This forum was the biggest help with the build sheet when we ordered our 21. The only regret I have was only getting one shelf in the wardrobe instead of two. Hope this helps. Loren

Or, if you want extra storage, get the full height cabinet over the drawers & skip the nightstand. They give you a fold down table that takes the place of the nightstand top...

On the 21 there are a couple of unadvertised options. The window over the drawstack is one. The other is an extra cupboard right over the drawstack. The other unadvertised option is the potential for reinforced walls. Your sales person at Escape can send you the details.

Another 'unadvertised' option is a small cabinet above the cabinet where the microwave would normally be. Yes, it costs but you can never have too many cabinets ...
