At least you have pictures to look at. Some of us purchased a brand new model based on a Photoshop picture and the interior layout drawn on a cocktail napkin

They'll have to change some of the interior photos, since the cabinets by the frig have now changed. Plus, the way the door opens on the cabinet under the frig is now different.

But, at least we can see what those cubbies look like in place.

(BTW, they're putting in the cubbies as it's more time efficient for them to do that instead of finishing the wall without them. I'm still bummed about those cubbies now being standard.)

And yeah, the exterior are definitely incorrect!

I'm wondering how many people see those photos and think that's exactly what they're going to be getting, without knowing about the changes. It would take a lot of work to find all that info on this forum. I wonder how many are disappointed due to older photos that could easily (and should) be replaced.

I imagine it would be. Were you able to see any size Escape trailer in person? Anyone in your neck of the woods with one? I feel very fortunate that I'm able to zip up there quite easily to check things out.

Are you driving up to get yours or having it delivered?

I guess you can kind of think of it as a blind date that will work out. Dirk was a blind date for me and we're still together after almost 30 years. So, some blind dates do work out!

I went to that last Bluebonnet Casita rally and had the opportunity to see three 21' classics. Next month I am going to the Javelina rally and Marv will be there with his new 21' so I will be able to walk through a "2017" model.

I will be driving up from Texas to pick up the trailer. Hopefully I can get an earlier pickup date than Jan. as that is a rough month for an old boy that doesn't do snow and ice.

Just got an email back from Krista:

"Unfortunately, we will not put the old cabinets in the trailers. I do apologize for the inconvenience. The wardrobe was moved up to be level with the top of the fridge. It really does look better in person. I know pictures usually do not do things justice. The wardrobe door is the same size, but taller inside."
That added upper space where the cabinet was might be a great place to build a drop-down drawer (like under upper kitchen cabinet spice holders) for discreet storage. Provided they didn't raise the closet rod too high - but that could always be moved.

Oh, good idea Charlie, thanks. We're not getting the clothes rod, so that won't be an issue.

Hum, something else to add to your business line?

Not something I would market, but there are some who might like to add a safe up there for security reasons.

A fella I know married his blind date, she recently asked for an amicable divorce after 25 years. She got enough to buy 10 21 foot Escapes and a worn out Subaru in the settlement. He bought her a 7000 dollar
stove but she still couldn't cook. A good woman and a good cigar are still hard to find.
