Favorite things....

So I know there are other threads about favorite things on build sheet, but of course I can't find them. After one trip in Bailey driving in torrential rains, my favorite safety features are the extra brake lights, the Anderson hitch, and the rear view safety camera the we sent to ETI during the build. Seriously, that camera is awesome! We didn't add big mirrors to the FJ, we already had some small fisheye stick on mirrors, but the camera set up is great!

We also think the solar panels were a great addition.

Now we need to know what after market things do you love? Either must do mods, storage solutions, or things that make life easier or more fun in your trailer??

Extra cushion and filler board for the U-shape dinette in Ten Forward. Wonderful place to nap! And, easily removed to create a lounge area for others needing seating.

Oh, and the larger prep sink and hi-rise faucet on four-inch centers. No water all over the counter now!

Neither a must-do nor a life-changer but changing out the refer panel was a great eye-pleasing modification to me...

And the painted furnace cover. Egbert is just cool. Period.

One of my favorite features in my 2012 Escape 19' are the inside window shades. They are easy to use and work and look great!

Some of my mods that I'm happy to have:

The shoe drawer is a little "rustic" but very useful; the wood slide came from Rockler. I added two red LED's and a switch to the bathroom light for a non-blinding nightlight. The wire mesh baskets came from The Container Store. The little wooden remote/glasses holder is a CW staple. The gizmo on the side (held on with a small piece of velcro) is a remote control dimmer/on-off switch for the strip of LED's I put in the shelf over the dining room table. The one that's used constantly is the four marine grade cleats I put on both front (L&R) cabinets that I use as a towel bar. With a length of nylon rope, I can run it across twice and secure it in the cam lock that's shown. Most of these ideas I got from others on the forum. Without their help I doubt I would have come up with anything so clever. And lastly, as a Marylander like yourself, my spare tire cover is the heraldry of Baron Baltimore.

Yep, born and raised (Bethesda ... back when it was a small town). Next time you're visiting family, let's have a mini rally; there's four or five of us around these parts.
