Amazing how we all vary our layout. We converted the wardrobe to a pantry by adding shelves, since we don't take any clothes with us when camping that require hanging. That left room for one drawer under the pantry. Works for us, but it points out what many forum veterans have said -- think about how YOU are going to use the trailer, and adjust accordingly.

The hooks, where are they from? Is this an option or did you install?

Umbra makes several different styles but these are the most popular with Escapees:

ETI will install them (you supply them) where you want them when you pick up your trailer...at least they did in 2013.

Thx these look great. Walls do not have to be reinforced, right?

I was thinking of two captain lights, one at each end. Corners best location?

No, the walls don't need to be reinforced to install Umbra hooks. We had one installed on a regular wall and it works great. If you let Escape know beforehand and take them with you, they'll install them on your pickup day. That's what we did.

We added the captains lights and we're glad we did so. We had them installed at the head of the bed.

We put two in the front dinette, on left and right corners, and two more at the head end of the rear bed. The lights get used a lot and are great for reading in bed.

We ordered the Umbra hooks from Amazon and had them shipped directly to ETI. During our briefing, they asked us where we wanted them, cut them to length (they have a steel rod or core as I remember), and had them mounted in about 30". Anything hanging on the back wall of the bathroom is rather out of the way and doesn't interfere with the seating for the table. They also made this nifty little brace to keep our under the bed wardrobe containers from moving forward.

Which is why we didn't ship them but carried them. They install them on your pickup day so shipping them beforehand isn't necessary, and, shipping to Canada is very pricey.

Is there a true head to the bed? We are having the arm for the TV installed in the standard location.

Of course there is. One must have their heads away from the door, or very scary things might happen.
