EEEEEEE!!!!! My trailer is almost ready.......

I'm excited! Can you tell

It'll be ready within the next few days...and I have a question for you...

If you had a choice would you have the wheel wells done with the LineEx? I'm getting the front done and I have a chance to get the wheel wells done too if I want (at a cost of course). Now's the ideal opportunity to get it done instead of having to do it later on down the road. So....do you think it is a good idea to do it now?

Re: EEEEEEE!!!!! My trailer is almost ready.......

I vote no. Nobody is looking at your wheel wells.
When it comes to washing that area, the smoother the surface, the better. I recommend avoiding cow patties...
I've had my Escape since 2008 and I admit, I haven't spent a lot of time examining the wheel wells, but I have washed them a couple of times. I haven't noticed any rock chips, and when I eventually do, I plan to ignore them.

Hi: nadia... I really advocate doing some things at time of build as they are usually less expensive than later down the road. IMHO Alf

We have four and a half months left to go. With the snow slowly melting, it would be nice to head out for an overnighter really soon!

Enjoy your Escape: maybe see you on the road.

cheers,

Gord

(oh ya - this is post number 50 for me )

Re: EEEEEEE!!!!! My trailer is almost ready.......

Today , we got the word, our trailer is ready as well, one piece of paper work to do and it is ours.
That last piece of paper work is the mailing of a certified cheque to Tammy and Reace, for a job well done, and a thank you. Then we can say we are

"Escapee's" albiet newbies

Our Trailer "Yukon Escape" is a 19 footer.

The options we chose are;

Additional window over the sink
Extra signal lights along side the rear window "as others have done"
Dirt Skirt
Equalizer hitch
Interior LED lights (fixture with 15 anodes) what ever that is
Exterior LED lights 11 in total
Exterior storage box on front
Stainless sink and chrome faucet
Hitch wheel
Forest green graphics
Starter kit

Trailers name on back below window "Yukon Escape"

We did not go for the airconditioner, and did not want the extra vent in the roof.

We kept the Maxx fann

I am looking forward to picking up the unit and enjoying our first outing.

I will most likely modify the power cord so that it can be detached.
I will also be looking into insulating the floor.

Oh Look! An option that I didn't know existed! What on earth (no pun intended) is a dirt skirt?
What are the 11 the Exterior LED lights? Are these the signal and running lights (which I thought were LED by default) or are they additional lights?

Re: EEEEEEE!!!!! My trailer is almost ready.......

Many new options are "discovered" reading this forum. Things like the propane/elect water heater come to mind. While the Escape Trailer webpage is excellent (compared with the competition trailers) it still could be improved with updated options page and even pictures of what the various options and components look like.

I don't kniw what a dirtskirt is either.

To YukonEscape and Nadia: Are your trailers earlier than the original hatching date or are they exactly on the predicted arrival date?

Thanks,
Gord (who is no longer a newbie!)

The exterior running lightrs are available as LEDs (I assume they are standard Incandescents otherwise). We also had the exterior (switchable) fixtures installed as LEDs. Reace installed in interior switch which controls the exterior lights so we can turn them on or off from inside (I can't tell you the number of times I've left the porch light on all night because I couldn't see it. The inside switch solves that).

I just noticed that this is post #250 for me, and I'm now a four star Sr. Member. I think I'll go put a coat of polish on our trailer to celebrate!
