Yep, that's the beauty of a "slightly larger" trailer -- although all Escapes have an impressive amount of storage for their size.

Very nice! One of the things of which I was unaware, was to have a drawer put in the wardrobe. I have shelves instead, and for my "junk drawer", I got of those small three drawer things that sits on the top shelf. It is good for all those odds and ends like note pads, pens, tape measure, mini sewing kit, etc.
Glad to hear all went well, and enjoy your trip back. Nice to know there is another 17B in California!

Boy, I learned the lesson of too few drawers in my current house and fixed that when I remodeled. I also had extra ones put in my 15A for a total of four drawers, two narrow ones and two wide ones. Aside from the flatware drawer, the others could all be classified as junk drawers.

Okay, here we are, Grayland beach state park just south of Aberdeen,WA. Great spot, amazing expanse of endless beach. We have our own private path to the beach. Wonderful spot, #100.
This is our first night actually camping, we've been with friends and family driveway camping on Whidbey and Sequim since picking up the trailer 5 days ago...a little learning experience hooking up electricity in the campground, but as luck would have it our neighbor is an electrician and helped! Although he did say the end going to the trailer seemed a little loose; anyone have any thoughts on that?
Towing seems great, without fancy hitch. We've got the awning thing down....videotaped the orientation with my iPhone.
It's all good, drinking a celebratory bottle of prosecco as I write this...fresh salmon for the grill, steamed corn....on to sunset bay state park in OR tomorrow for four days....soooo happy....K&P

Good for you K&P, make memories, take photos and write in your journal. A loose connection? Do you have the removable electric?

Make memories... OMG! Have a ton of fun!

At the trailer end? Open the hatch where it goes into the trailer and see if the "nut" against the body of the trailer has loosened. Remember, trailers going down the road are discribed as an "earthquake" going down the road. Things loosen up.

Sounds wonderful!
Do you have a little electric tester for the pedestals? If not, you might want to get one later, with adaptor for 30-amp, so you can check the electric at each site before plugging in.

Have a nice trip home with your new Escape!
