The slider window is installed in the bathroom. It slides vertically, and the screen will also slide, giving access for a hose to clean out the black water tank.

I doubt the Jack antennae is standard. It may be the new 'standard' for the option.

It replaced the Winegard antenna, there is a option to have the tv ready installed, this includes antenna and a cable hookups installed, you maybe confusing the two nomenclatures. If you want to watch tv, you will have to purchase this option and includes the antenna, be it winegard the older and Jack the newer antenna model included in the "TV ready" option.

This from Kim, as of today: The antenna will only be a Jack antenna if you request it. The cost is $300 instead of the $250 for the regular one. If you are wanting the Jack, be aware that it does sit much higher than the regular - it sits 11" high instead of 6" high.

We have the Winegard on our 17B. The only time we camped where there was any over air reception we got 5 PBS channels that all had the same programming.
I think we'll skip the antenna, but spec the cable ready in case We ever want to get a Tailgater and Dish satellite receiver.

Dave is on the fence about the detachable power cord and outside shower and now Jon has mentioned the amplified cell phone antenna! I like the idea of a pressurized shock to hold up the mattress cover - thanks!

Other than that we really feel like we need to sit in the trailer and think about where the outlets are and where we want shelves, hooks, extra lights - maybe an inside switch for the porch light. Will turn in our report from Chilliwack later this week.

(Dave) & Kathie
Also consider the dishwasher and the deep sink, washer/dryer, heated towel rack and toilet seat.

IF you are a boondocker, and MUST stay connected... check out RV Sue's blog. I don't know if this will suit your needs, but it works for Sue and she spends most of her time... off the grid: Internet Antenna | rvsue and her canine crew

Tongue Wheel

Does anyone know if the tongue wheel is standard, or an option on Escape trailers?

I have one for my 17, but I never use it...not sure if it was standard or the original owner purchased it as an option.
I think the 21's are going to be pretty heavy on the tongue to wheel around.
