Nice trailer, sounds well thought out.

For several reasons we opted to skip the hood, we're good without. Welcome to the minority.

Would like to see a picture of the round table when you get one. Think I'd like to shrink mine down a little.

Sounds well thought out, but I too agree on the rangehood being important.

While we have in the past cooked primarily outside, and will likely do in the future, there are times we have been forced inside, and getting the steam and vapours out through a proper vent is important to us. Like Ron said, just see what there is for gunk on your filter after time, which is definitely something I would not want on our ceiling and ceiling fan.

At home we use our rangehood all the time, especially in winter, to evacuate moisture, which is their main purpose. Otherwise the condensation build up would be damaging to our windows. Same for our trailer, as we tend to be camping mostly in cooler temps.

Oh, and we eat chorizo sausage all the time, one of our staple breakfast foods. Bacon is nice too, but chorizo wins out for flavour.

After two seasons in the trailer I'm glad we switched the sink and stove, and there is no gunk problem on the Maxi Fan. However, all meat and splatter food is cooked outside except for the rare times when it is too miserable to go out. In fact, this has worked so well that now at home, except when it is too frigid to go out -- like now -- our meat is cooked outside. Grilling is new for us -- and Terry -- who has NEVER cooked -- has become a grill master. It makes cleanup so much easier!

Mary's extra wheel protection stirred my interest so I email ETI about it . This was the answer.
"The Extra Wheel Well protection is available, called Linex (Rock Protection). It comes standard on the storage box, and also there are two standard pieces that can be snapped on to the front of the trailer, on the driver's side and the passenger side. The Linex is an additional charge of $300, and it is sprayed onto the wheel wells of your trailer.
Might be worth getting. We live in an area referred to as "the Marcellus shale bed"all of our back roads have a lot of small stones to get thrown up into the wheel wells.

I am not sure that we have heard of more than about one person getting the wheel wells done by Escape, if any. They probably have done a few that we have not heard about. We have only spent a few miles on gravel so just do not need it. I also like the wheel wells the way they are.

I believe once upon a time Reace was asked about the wheel well spray idea, or maybe it was the front of the 5.0's. His answer was why not wait till the gelcoat gets chipped up before spraying. It can be done at any Line-X shop.

And I think I remember someone posting that it was a bitch to clean as it was rough and all that. Not my idea of fun.

Marry, you also mention raising the dinette 2". Aren't they normally raised 3" or 4"? Why just 2", or am I wrong about that? How much can the dinette be raised? Thanks.

I asked about having the frame being sprayed in line-x prior to having the shell put on it, to protect it against rusting and was told no. I was bummed.
