Finally an Escape

Alf its been a long road to get an Escape trailer . We missed the 2016 order by minutes and off course the 5.0 in Virginia I missed . My wife won out with a 21. I still like the 5.0TA but no Truck for her ? So hopefully we can get an earlier build . I do like the flat door much better (not for appearances ) but for built in screen door and easier fix if broken? The windows and shade don't really matter to me . Loree ordered the Trailer so she finally wants it . We probably will sell Snoozy in the summer . Jim

Jenny,
Why not start a new thread for your build sheet and we can then express our comments?

I like the fan upgrade for several reasons, the remote is handy and you keep it by the bed. The smoke lens lets in natural light even some moon night. the opaque standard cover blocks all views except for making it appear to be a ceiling light, it just glows, even at night with street lights. I still have my original opaque cover from my 19 in the garage when I switched it out myself way back.
The wheel thingy, when I got a flat I realized I should have had an extra because the fixed tire is now your spare. Other wise you have to purchase a new tire. If possible I'd get 6 total and have a spare to keep inside garage and rotate all 6.

There's been at least one entire thread devoted to this subject. Probably more!

You'll get folks saying either one works fine for them or they prefer one type over the other. Personally, I don't want to bend over that much so we went with the foot flush. It was worth the 60 bucks to me.

And who knows, you may be able to comfortably bend over now to flush, but what about later on?

Although Trailer Life did just run an article on replacing your toilet and supposedly it's only a 45 minute project. Yeah, we'll see about that! HA!

The flush hand is on the tank in my sticks 'n bricks. I have to bend slightly to flush there. Little to no difference in my trailer.
