I was thinking that the t-mold would add some cushioning especially when the table is down and it is against the fiberglass in the dinette. I guess I'll have to route that grove and use the t-mold. I don't mind the look of good quality Baltic birch edge after sanding and finishing.

Don't quite know what you mean about it being against the fiberglass when it's down. It will rest on the dinette bench rails. If you mean the back (standard bench with no U-shape dinette), that may touch the vinyl wall covering, but never any fiberglass. Since you plan on rounding the edge if you go with Birch Plywood, there's no need to protect the wall from the smooth edge.

In my Casita the tables sit on the fiberglass that makes up the benches I just assumed the Escape was the same. Thanks for the info.

Oh! That would explain it. There are many significant differences, not the least of which is no exposed fiberglass gelcoat on the interior, except around the door frame area. The seat benches are wood frames with a plywood hinged top and paneling on the sides.

I think that one would be able to use the hair dryer there and be use the bathroom mirror at the same time with the door open.
We added a 110V outlet on the angled side of the 21 bed; pretty useless space otherwise; wifey sits on the bed and uses that outlet with the long mirror inside the bathroom door to dry hair.

On Baltic Birch. I've found all the 4x8 sheets to have voids, the 5'x5'ers are the good stuff.

Thanks to all for your input. This forum has been so helpful. I will be putting the extra 120 at the foot of the bed on the angled part and adding that exterior hatch in the rear drivers side. But now I have more questions. Does anyone know what the dimensions of the opening of the microwave cabinet are height and width? Is there a shutoff switch to the batteries or do I need to add that as an option? I had one added to my Casita as the battery would drain while parked for a period of time.
Thanks again
Mitzi

Be sure and get the solar option which will keep the batteries charged, 24/365.

Hi Jim. I am getting the solar panel and inverter. Is that what you are referring to? I am also getting a cover for the trailer and thought the solar won't be helpful when the cover is on. Im glad I noticed that you are getting an exterior fridge fan on Prarrie Schooner, I guess I'll need to add that to my list as well. This trailer is getting so pricey I may have to live in it!

The bathroom interior is all exposed gelcoat.

Also the inside of the entry door on the classic Escapes.

If you haven't already I would strongly recommend you contact ETI and get a referral to see a trailer.
