Looked like mud compared to the little size, I would have been heart broken, truly.. or at least terribly, terribly disappointed.

Also, Sailrite will send you a sample (and a 10% off coupon!). It's well worth it.

Thanks for the tip on ordering the larger Formica as we only picked up the small samples. Luckily we have ordered and received the Sunbrella samples.

We went to local building supply that sold kitchen and bath cabinets, they also had small and large (12"x 12") samples of Formica. We also went to local upholstery shop and they let us borrow their Sunbrella samples book. ETI sent us small samples of their stock. flooring,cabinets,and the upholstery. It was a big help in decision making.

Custom fabric and Formica in our 2013 Escape19'.

Our Formica is "Mineral Jet {3450-58}" with black vinyl trim.

We went with a custom formica (Mineral Jet 3450-58, radiance finish) We were rushed on the fabric choice so we ended up staying with the standard one. We are happy with both.

Thank you for showing these pictures. I love the darker formica! Did you tell them the color of trim that you wanted? Anything else I need to request when making a formica change? Now I can't wait to post our own pictures in 8 months!

We requested black trim. The screw holes on the back splash are tan on ours but they look fine that way. You might be able to ask for the black buttons.

When I picked up Egbert less than a year ago, ETI had three trim colors (black, brown, and ochre) but only one color for the snap covers and backsplash trim. The covers are easily spray-painted (remove first) or replaced with another color from a store or online. I colored in the backsplash trim with a black Sharpie.
