Looks great Jim, I know you did your homework well for what fits your needs. Just curious as to what this light is.

Its a light switch going into camper at night turns on overhead light from doorway along with light switch to turn on outside light .I did not get winterizing kit I live in Florida it never freezes down in SW Florida .Now as soon as they can export again I will wire money to them and wait patiently for Nov 2nd or so .

There is still room on Nov delivery to Goshen, Indiana and North Carolina talk to Tammy

Is the switch for an interior light not standard now. For some reason I thought it was.

My plan is to turn one interior light, as well as the exterior light, into a 3-way circuit so it can be switched at either the light or the wall switch. Of course, I will have to do this myself, I will just get Escape to add an extra wire.

I agree it ought to be standard. Is that another $100 option?

Hi: jennykatz... We didn't get a switch like that on our build sheet as I'm quite used to being "Kept in the dark" Alf

21 switch

I think it should be standard it was in my Snoozy along with all reinforced walls
There are good and not so good on every trailer The Goods far out weigh the not so goods IMHO. the option is $50 for switch extra $50 for inverter wire $25 for wires to cabinets .
I'm very excited to be getting an Escape trailer .When we first started looking we wanted
1-shower that we could use over 6ft . headroom that left Casita out no headroom
2-I didn't like the rivet idea with Scamp
3-Parkliner had way to many Mgmt. problems
4-Escape not many for sale on East Coast ( I messed up not getting a 5.0 in VA. we had no truck and I couldn't figure out the height of bed etc etc.
5-Egg was to sterile white and no bathroom door?
6-We settled on a Lil Snoozy Great little camper but we outgrew it with 2 Grand-kids and a dog
7-Finally a 21 Escape ( I still like the 5.0TA better but the Admiral didn't like Trucks .I think we got the trailer that will work for us I think we got most of the options .I will swap out or buy an inverter 1500-2000? and buy my own microwave I wanted the extra door .Hopefully when we get it home I will build a
sliding box /shelf for under the bed .and either have welding shop make me a front box or buy from Northern tool one of there's By having a smaller box and readjusting the propane tanks I will get a little more maneuvering ability out of the trailer ? Happy Camping Jim

If you decide to mount a microwave, here is a place that makes trim kits for most models,

Microwave Oven Trim Kits - Custom Microwave Kits - Micro-Trim, Inc.

I didn't care for the way Escape mounted their microwave - looks kinda tacky.

4-Exterior shower I don't know if I need this but got it anyway

Seems like this could be very useful for washing dishes and showering if camping where water is available but you don't want to fill up the grey tank too quickly. Seems to me; if you don't have it you wouldn't necessarily miss it but if you have it you can put it to good use on warm days.

12-Camera drop wired to clearance light (to put in future camera in back )

Great idea!! I am also interested in the rear camera but am currently undergoing sticker shock from all the other items I want.

14-toilet shut off valve (I put one of these in my Lil Snoozy )

Seems like this should be standard also.

21-1 reinforced wall w-6 by bed and bathroom wall.

I'm curious about this option. Is the wall thicker or is there an additional or thicker face board? Does this add much weight? How much does it cost? I realize it is for adding a TV mount.
My reply is embedded above.
