Custom fabric, formica and floor

I'm assuming on the build sheet prices for custom colors for floor, formica and fabric that it does not include the price of materials? Also where do I find the standard material colors for the three items if not custom. Thanks for all the help you folk provide.

Call Escape and they'll send you a sample package of the standard items. You are correct that you supply any custom items at your cost.

Except for the Formica (when ordering - 58 I think)

This can be confusing if one doesn't know the Formica line. All 58 means is matte finish.

You'll pay extra to ETI for the ability to have custom flooring, fabric and countertop. You can order the flooring through Pioneer Building Supply in Chilliwack - talk to Jackie and she'll get you taken care of. They'll hang onto your flooring until ETI is ready to pick it up for installation.

For the countertop - you don't have to pay for it, but you will have to let ETI know which one you want. It has to be a Formica brand, so don't waste your time looking and falling in love with another brand (not that I know anything about that!). You can order a glossy finish, but you'll pay an additional fee to ETI for that. Otherwise, as mentioned, order a matte finish that ends in the number 58.

You can order decent sized samples (free!) from Formica, which I strongly advise doing. Dinko samples from the store and your computer monitor aren't enough to tell you if you'd like it in your trailer.

For fabric - lots to choose from! Many will go with the Sunbrella brand. There are numerous places to buy fabric from on-line. I ended up getting mine through Patio Lane. I originally got samples from a local upholstery shop (had to pay for 'em), plus some on-line places. Had wads of samples and finally narrowed it down. We'd picked our countertop and flooring by then, so I could see how all 3 went together.

I purchased a yard of the fabric off ebay (just in case I didn't like it I didn't waste too much money) and then the remainder from the company. they honored their ebay price, which was less than on their web site, I got enough for free shipping and they had an on-line coupon I was able to use. Yay!

If you're looking into customer provided sink and faucet, you can order it yourself and take it (or ship it, depending on where you live) to ETI. We ordered our sink through Pioneer as it was less expensive than getting it ourselves and hauling it up there (I live 3 hours away). They're holding on to it until ETI needs it. The faucet I wanted wasn't available in Canada, so I ordered it and it's sitting in my attic waiting for when I haul it up there myself.

Have fun looking at all your choices and making those decisions!

Some time ago ETI put out a trailer with a different countertop than what they were using before, as a test (to which the owner agreed to). So, they're probably trying to decide on new finishes, but nothing official has been released by them. So, what you see on their web site may not be what they'll use in the 2017 trailers.

FYI - When I was at the factory on April 1st, I asked Sarah if there would be new colours for the fabric, Formica and flooring. She said no and handed me the swatches of stock colours.
Hopefully as time passes, that will change as I too am not into the browns.

Overall, it's fun making it your own unique trailer!

This is where customization is great. We actually love warm colours, browns, oranges, reds etc. Not real big on the stock stuff, but it ain't too bad. I do love seeing what others do, and admire some of the super bold choices folks make.

OMG, that was one of the things that really turned me off to the stick built trailers that we first started exploring. ALL brown tones. OMG, yuck. Yeah, don't like the brown colors at all. But, others do, so to each their own.

To me, it was well worth the extra cost for the custom countertop, flooring and fabric. Dirk doesn't care, but he knows what makes me happy, makes him happy. Smart man!

AZ Yanks like a lot of color. Every wall in our house is painted a different color in good AZ fashion. I'm sitting in a room now that has two walls Navy Blue, two walls Terra Cotta, and a half wall off-white. Our trailer had to have color.....
