The blog at Jon's Journeys is a short version of my travels - I have a web page with the same text but usually many more photos for this trip at 2014 Trip Across the US & Canada.. There is also a page dedicated to fiberglass trailers & their owners at Fiberglass Trailers, and many more RV, Travel & photos pages at the site. What started out as a replacement for a paper log of my travels has gotten completely out of hand!

As to modifications, I have made a few, and plans for more when I get back to NY. I have a web page describing them here.
Modest Jon. That must be a new use of the word "few" I'm unfamiliar with...

In a similar discussion not specific to Escape, I recall someone asking how two people could live full-time in a 13-foot trailer. The best answer was to live out of the trailer, using it as a place to sleep, cook, whatever... but spending most of the time out doing things. That made sense to me.

Since Escape Trailer Industries started with the 17-foot model, and has built relatively few of the smaller models (13' and 15') but an ever-increasing range of larger models, I expect that it will be hard to find anyone living full-time in the little ones.

We have only used larger RVs for extended living; our 17' trailer has only been for trips of a week or so. That doesn't mean it isn't practical, just that I can't add any report of personal experience in that size.

Thanks for all of the great info! Much appreciated. I agree totally with living "out of the box". You do the same living aboard a small boat. Cruising folks anchor or dock the boat; then go ashore and explore the towns. More appropriate names might be "rest aboard" or "sleep aboard". You only truly liveaboard when you are underway or anchor and decide not to go ashore.
