Trailer: 2012 Escape 19'

Re: Outgassing

We just received our new Escape 19' and it had almost no smell when we opened it the first time while it was still on the delivery truck last Thursday. What we did notice though is when we bring things into the "confined" space we can smell the new stuff. On Saturday we purchased a bunch of plastic shoe boxes which fit well in the overhead spaces and we had a very heavy plastic smell afterward. I hope the trailer also enhances the smell of good wine and barbequed steak!...of course we are pretty excited now!

Re: Outgassing

It does seem that smells are more pungent inside the Escape, that is why I lined my closet and under sink area with cedar strips that lock together like a wood floor to form a solid surface. Now when I enter after the unit has been closed I'm greeted with the cedar fragrance.

Jim, you have a detailed mind! I'm thinking of a wine theme for my new Escape 19'. The exterior is burgundy as is my TV and my mind! I ordered a burgundy 12' X 9' carpet for the awning area, have a good low pressure gas fired barbeque to plug into the trailer and numerous places to visit. How can iot get better than that?

Re: Outgassing

Thanks everyone -- It sounds like we'll be able to deal. It is interesting that a couple of people noticed that the trailer holds the smells of things that are brought in. A good reason for keeping windows open.
