But you do get a credit if you order your trailer naked, without the graphics. 100 bucks

Some things that get deleted you get a credit for it, but not everything. Don't bother trying to figure out why for some and not the others.

We deleted the bathroom sink, faucet and shelf over the bed and didn't get a credit for them. But we did get a credit for deleting the mattress ($150), valences ($10 each) and dayshades ($25 each). We provided our own sink and faucet, but didn't get a credit for not using theirs. But they're not charging us to install our own. And there isn't a charge/credit for deleting the metal stove cover.

what mattress did you get instead? do you have to cut mattress corners or can you buy mattresses like that?

Yeah, the mattress situation is a bit tricky. We've been using Select Comfort beds for almost 25 years, so we got a full size one for the trailer. It's a bit shorter than the platform, so I plan to put some thick foam at the top, which will be covered by pillows. then at the bottom - yeah, the tricky part. I'm thinking of putting in a small wood piece to support the edge. I'll have to see just how it all works out when we bring it home Dec 14th.

Other folks have used other beds and there are threads on here regarding that. Could not tell you what to search for, though, to find those comments. I seem to recall there was one brand that they were able to trim off the edge. And then others are quite happy with the mattress from ETI or will put a slab of memory foam on top (I don't like memory foam).

Or I might just shove the mattress all the way up and put some trimmed foam at the foot, which should help with some of that chopped off bit. We'll have to see how all it goes.

We hope to get the trailer all ready to go for a trip to the WA/OR coast just after Xmas. Fingers crossed the weather will let us!

Agree with folks about the front storage box and at least get the wiring for the solar. With aches and pains at our age starting to crop up I was worried about the mattress but it has turned out to be a great mattress, glad we went with it. There are companies that will make a custom mattress for RV's, maybe down the road if we wear this one out.

Sounds like it's coming together for you, good luck, it's all good!

21 mattress

we have a total of 4 Casper brand mattresses and the one in our 21 feels so good, just as the ones in our house . In the trailer I just cut the corner of the mattress off with a knife and since the original was 80" long and replacements are 75" long we have a place to store the decorative pillows at night. See the web site for Casper info.

Can someone please give me the EXACT length of a new 21' Escape. I need the measurements to include from the very front of the hitch to the back of the spare tire.
Thanks Bob-o

2016 with the old frame or 2017 with the new frame? Dunno if it got longer/shorter.

We added a counter extension at the end of the kitchen counter. Can never have enough counter space and I'll take what more I can get. We also added them in the dinette as we're getting the u-shape version and the table won't be installed. That way we'll have a place for snacks and drinks while lounging in comfort and reading.

And if there is, oh well. There will be times soon enough after that for camping!
Please explain where you are installing the counter extensions for use with the U shaped dinette.
Thanks, Rick

They are mounted onto the wall separating the kitchen counter from the dinette area and on the fridge wall. We didn't do any reinforcing of walls and at first they said they would have to do so on the kitchen side however they "braced" it at N/C. They make them at a height so the table will slide over them if in the up position. Personally I like having it up when seated sometimes as it provides arm support or I can put a glass there. Can still enter or exit the dinette with them up- especially if you have a Springfield & Dicor setup for the table.
