Thanks everyone for taking time to reply to my initial questions. I greatly appreciate it. As hubby says, my "must have" changes every time I get new info - about Escapes or any other company. I know seeing them in person will really make a difference and we plan to start doing that pretty soon.

Have to find a hotel to stay in for the rally. It's about 5 hours from here, depending on the border crossing. Maybe I'll meet some of you there.

Laura, we had ETI pre-wire two locations for TVs, one for the dinette and one for the bed. Even though we watch very little TV while camping, we've used both locations. We only carry one TV and one DVD player, but they're easily moved between the two locations.

Hi: NW Cat Owner... It would be possible to stay in the Nk'Mip campground. They have Yurts for rent and also some trailers on sites too. Here are some interior shots of our "Escape Hatch II" 5.0TA interior. Alf

Just remember that while good planning helps you get the build you need, that even with very few options, you will still be able to greatly enjoy your trailer. I guess I'm saying to make sure you keep the process fun, and don't sweat missing small details. We see that a fair bit here, where folks are sweating things, and just end up ordering every option to cover all bases. Not that it is a bad thing, just costs more money.

There will be well over 100 of us at the Rally, with lots of different approaches to how we prefer to camp. It is great to take in what everyone has to say, then take some time to sit back and decide what works best for you. See you there!!!

If for any reason you don't make it to the rally and want to see a 19', you're more than welcome to see mine. It's less than a mile east of I5 near the Olympia airport. Just let me know ...

Hey Alf,

thanks for the photos. Love seeing the magnets on the stove cover/vent (whatever it's called). I have magnets all over my filing cabinets at home, although I've greatly whittled them down.

Laura,

A few links that might be useful to you both.

If you could do it again, what would be different?

Options that are not on the list

If You Could Design My new Trailer and Pick My Options...... Older post

WOW! Several hours later I'm still reading through these links!

I never knew so many different options could be added. yeah, I've read through the list, but some of them didn't make much sense to me. And then the ones that aren't on the list! Holy Cow!

After I get through reading all the posts, I'll probably post asking about some of the options, if they weren't already explained in another post.

Holy Cow! Thanks for the links. I greatly appreciate it. Sounds like I really need to go to the rally and ask what options were added. And take photos (if that's allowed). Wow!

You may want to check with EDarby (Ellen), she's flying from Ohio into Spokane, renting a car and staying in a close motel to the Rally (she could tell you which one). Seems like attending would be a great idea for you too. And of course you can take photos!

Another reason for purchasing an Escape; I just got another cheque in the mail from ETI as a referral bonus for showing our Escape to a new owner before they made their purchase. Only 173 more referrals and I will have my Escape for free.
