I have been very pleased with my Pioneer stereo/DVD/radio and Kenwood speakers. I know, I know. Technology changes and I'm going to be so sorry to have these ugly holes in the cabinets. I don't think so. I have enough CDs to last a lifetime so why throw them away just to have the latest toy? I don't like music outside (mine or anybody else's as I prefer the sounds of nature) so have no need to have a portable unit. I expect my system to satisfy my needs for as long as I camp. Note that this is a collage of two pictures and the models are in the text boxes.

I chose an Alpine with a DIN-1 form factor with Alpine speakers fore and aft; ETI supplied the mounting enclosure. Very happy with the unit, preamp outputs on the rear go to a Bluetooth transmitter for our tabletop speaker outside and the aux in on the front is connected to the television earphone output.

I'm just considering options for a 19 as well, and thought this communication with ETI might be helpful for you:
1. Please confirm if you don't take the 2 way hot water tank you get a propane only tank
Correct, the standard HW tank is propane only.
2. Can you still rotate the 2-burner cooktop 90 degrees and do you get much more counter? How much is the charge?
Yes, Cost is $50. You will gain a few inches on the countertop
3. What is the standard size and model fridge supplied
4.3 cubic feet, Dometic – RM8551
4. Does it come with one USB/ 12V out let supplied and what is the location?
Yes, this outlet is located at the front passenger side dinette bench (see attached diagram)
5. How is the solar panel mounted to the roof I hear there have been issues
The solar panels are now bolted on to the trailer
6. What is "A/C ready" and what does it involve to install A/C after the fact with this option
Your Escape 19’ will come A/C Ready. This means that there is blocking and wiring installed during production for after-market installation of the A/C Unit. Approximate cost is $925.
If A/C is not selected there will be a standard RV vent in that place.
7. Does the price for the equalizer (weight distribution) hitch include installation? What brand and model do you supply?
Yes, the price includes installation. We are currently installing the ProSeries 600lb Trunnion.
8. What brand wireless backup camera is supplied as option?
Tadi Brothers: SKU 90117
9. How much fabric required for plain pattern standard dinette? When do you need it?
Standard dinette & valences will require 5.5 yards of fabric. It must be received by your confirmation date (March 9, 2016)
10 How much flooring required for custom flooring? When do you need it? I will order from Pioneer.
We will need a 12’ x 11’ piece. This must be received by us by your confirmation date (please order with Pioneer well in advance of this date) I will forward more information about custom flooring in a separate email.
11. I hear a lot of people raise the dinette area by 4" for better view how much does that cost?
We can raise the dinette & benches 3”, cost is $300.
12. I'm thinking no decals anywhere except the back of the trailer would that be a problem?
Not at all, just let us know exactly which of our standard decals you want installed.
13. can you get an LED light installed in the vent hood? Or just do it yourself after is easier? (did it on my 17)
The standard is an incandescent bulb, this will be an aftermarket change.
14. I'm putting in Horst level gauges when do you need them?
By your confirmation date
15. Please confirm bike rack ready, all LED lighting, exterior access hatch are all standard, they were options on my 2015 17
Yes, these options are standard on the 2016 Escape 19’

We first pulled our 17 foot Casita with a 2002 6 cylinder Nissan Pathfinder, which did a fine job towing the trailer; however, after pulling the Casita up and down the Oregon and California coast, dropping into Fort Bragg, etc. and then all through the Steens, including approaching Lakeview, Or from the east side, I appreciate the Sequoia's towing ability (and braking ability). Looking forward to matching it with the 19'.

raising dinette in 19

Not sure of the reason but now they will only raise it 3" and it costs $300.
