21 Storage at head of bed, Led awning

Hello All,

My build sheet is due Nov. 2.

I have noticed a few (lately Loren and Cathy) request the option of storage at head of bed This was in addition to the cubbies outside the bathroom.

Does anyone have a picture of this?

One option listed on the escape website is an LED awning light strip. Has anyone added this? Pictures?

Thanks again for your help.

I believe this involves installing cubbies horizontally in lieu of the shelf, over the bed.

No pictures but we saw the led awning lights this week at ETI. They run as a strip just under the entire length of the awning. They provide adequate lighting w/o disturbing the neighbors and definitely add to the "cool" factor. I originally thought they were bogus, but having seen them we'll be adding them to our build list.

JIm, you have the shelf correct? Blue Bullet thanks for the info. I think I will add the LED lights on the awning now!

Jim, Much of your advice we are utilizing in our rig of course.

Seeing this, I have a question. Can you sit up in bed and read without your head hitting the shelf / cubbies? Thanks!

Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but I'm 6'1" and am comfortable reading in the Escape 21 bed. Haven't hit my head or any other body parts on the shelf, either.

I'm the same height, but the post was about sitting and hitting the head. I recline on the pillows to read and watch movies with no problem myself.

Yes, I just have the shelf over the bed and cubbies by the door.
