I'm looking forward to coming to Felton to see it!

Oops, forgot to include it in my list ... we are definitely getting the A/C. And I want you to know that you were instrumental in our decision to purchase an Escape. Going through your trailer and having you explain everything really clinched it for us. So a big THANK YOU!! Can't wait for you guys to come over and see our Escape ... we'll christen it with a bottle of wine (in our stomachs, not over the trailer). ;-)

Be sure and let Escape know about the referral, both of you will be happier.

That was the first thing we did. Bob was a great representative for Escape.

Big fridge all small?

Looking for experienced folks to help with this decision. There will almost always be just two of us traveling. The longest we ever anticipate being on the road consecutively is 1 month. The average times will be long weekends to a week @ a time. I like the idea of the big fridge but, will we keep it full enough for optimal efficiency and what about losing the space with the movement of the micro? Would like to hear your comments and recommendations

Not sure what sizes you are considering.
We've got a 5 cu.ft. in our 17. No microwave ( even the one at home is in the attic ). We easily fill it, but for us it's enough.

We have a 19 in the oven. I believe the 5 cu is standard and option is the 6

I agree, the microwave takes up a lot of prime storage in our Escapes, I grew up without one and would rather do without one.

We've got the standard 3.0 cubic foot 3-way, and and for our longest trip of two weeks last summer it was just fine. We depart with it quite full, and buy supplies along the way as needed. We do also tote along an ice chest, it's better for beer and wine, and we use more ice than the 3.0 freezer can produce anyway.

Yes, that ice maker in the 6.0 is really nice!

It's almost finished!

I know how much build photos helped us, so I thought I would post some from today. Our Escape is scheduled for completion next week and we made our final payment yesterday. Set up our orientation for the end of March and also made reservations at a B&B in Chilliwack (Escape's recommendation). Now we're hoping that the weather cooperates during our pickup week ...
