I think your build sheet is well thought out. If you don't mind the extra cost one suggestion is to switch to aluminium wheels.

That's why it's great when someone posts their build sheet as you might see something on their list you weren't aware of. And then you can add it to yours!

You're right Loren. Without following this forum, one wouldn't know some options were possible. ETI is amazingly accommodating!

I know. I think the aluminum wheels look great and I know they function well. Our Tow vehicle is white, with very little chrome. We just thought the white steel rims would look better with our vehicle. Plus, we live in a moderate climate where rust and corrosion are not really an issue. I hope this works out for us.

I almost bought the aluminum rims when it came time for new tires. But, I looked out the kitchen window at the trailer sitting in the front drive, and realized, I like the look of the white rims.
And, it was pointed out to me that aluminum rims also require maintenance to keep them all sparkly.

Steve,
Thanks for posting your build sheet. Nice to have it done, huh? Just don't have any regrets. Looks like a great list. We pick up our 21' on Jan 16. Can't wait...

I agree Glenn,
I like the clean lines and look of an Escape with and without the aluminum rims. They each enhance the look in their own way. Thanks

It sure is nice Carla Jean! Having the Sheet done so far ahead of completion, I think is an unintended benefit of ETI. Now we can concentrate on the real fun part; picking it up and USING IT!

Congratulations and have a great trip to Chilliwack .........and a Full Year of use!

Steve and if you ever decide you want aluminum rims, I found mine on sale for less than the upgrade price on the build sheet when I bought new tires and went from 14" to 15" wheels.

Eric, That's a great look. Those 15's give it a real husky and stable look. Thanks for the idea!

Cheers
