A/C

Really not understanding the extended discussion here. If you don't need A/C then order without but make sure it is A/C ready. Then if your unit languishes (unlikely) you can get it installed and put it back on the market. I just sold a 17B without A/C with no problem there were lots of interested parties. Just my two bits.

This would get around the winterizing issues sometimes reported. I wonder if the operable window some have installed in the bath could provide access to get the shower head outside if the screen were removed?

outside shower

One of the best options I chose for my trailer. Works well for lots of other functions besides showering. Nice to have a convenient outside water supply. This and exterior propane are musts for me.

What a great idea! Also helps solve the privacy issue with the street-side external shower. Going to look for means to extend the inside shower hose. You can turn on the faucet and have the slide closed on the shower head.

Someone asked why you should turn the pump off. One reason is because you forgot to turn the outside shower faucets off completely because you were in a hurry to get out of the cold. Don't ask how I know my wife did that

Hi Cathy, your resell point is valid as some people get much satisfaction trading not just RVs but automobiles and homes. With that lifestyle it seems they get what they think others would like for when sales time comes along. Under those circumstances your advice is solid. I think I would be doing the same if that were our lifestyle too.

Reality for some of us is that we always get pretty much what we like, enjoy to it's fullest not caring what someone else wants and just plain keep it. This is true for our home, car and RV. There are savings in keeping something for the duration of it's designed lifetime.
We like to satisfy ourselves first and not care what others would want should we have to sell. When we do sell, except for real estate, the value of the automobile, boat or RV would be small. In short, we love things we get and with few exceptions keep them.

We think the Escape shell is beautiful and in addition to us not being AC people, having it mounted on the roof detracts from the shell's sleek beauty. Maybe if if was integrated within the cabin space it might be different story. By the way, we have declined the awning as well. RV blasphemy ... I know.

Thank you Cathy

Talk about blasphemy: the front box detracts from the sleekness so I can appreciate that idea on the A/C but there is no way many would do without that box. Once we were used to using it, had to have it on the next one.

As for the awning, our 19' would definitely not have sold to our buyers without it. That was one of their big requirements. As for us, we have almost never used the awning. But we still want one for those rare times that we need it.

Cathy, I can enthusiastically tell you that without all the graphics, your trailer looks absolutely beautiful and I want to thank you for showing us how one looks in real life, well in photos is close enough. Don't need to tell you that we are following your lead and will do same. We would like to have the manufacturer's name on the back, their website and the fact that Scamps are made in Minnesota .

Wait, wrong forum.

I meant Escape and made in beautiful British Columbia.

We deploy our awning all the time. Here in the NorthWet it does a great job of keeping camp chairs etc. dry. I fold them up and lean them against the trailer, under the awning.

We actually are putting quite a few graphics, however, they are "ours" not Escapes. We now have one little "Escape" at front driver's side just to ID the trailer for when parked because the tire cover on the back cannot be seen. We never intended to have a bare trailer and now have "Floating Cloud" and some little trees on the front. "Made in British Columbia" will probably be on the back shortly. We also have maps on the door side at front and they get a lot of attention.

But our main graphics to replace Escape graphics are stripes that are from 3M that we have, but have not put on yet. We are looking at exactly what placement. I do like the white or gray belly band better than the black.

I did not like our 19' when we removed graphics to replace them, however, the 21' has looked better with no graphics than the 19' did. Not sure why. Anyway, if we put the stripes and don't like them, we can always take them off. We wanted a change so we are doing our own thing.

If yours is nearly bare, no doubt it will look good though.

We have been to about all states and to other provinces but the maps are just what we have done with the Escapes in the last four years.

That is interesting that you use yours for the rain. We didn't even think of that. We figure we need the awning once in a great while for sun.
