What is #1 on your list....

With a bunch of new owners receiving their trailers over the next 6 months, what is the first thing, other finding a place for your stuff, you plan on doing to your new Escape to make it yours, to personalize , or modify to make it better??
Let's make a list...

First things First

The first thing I'm doing is re-configuring the closet in the 21. I plan on dividing the closet vertically, leaving about 8" of hanging space and putting shelves in the remainder. I did this in our Casita and it really make things nice. I know the 21 has vastly more storage space, but having more conveniently located storage is really nice.

The second thing, if the new narrow cabinet isn't ready, is to design and build a new cabinet between the bathroom and the exit door.

But that's just me, Escape 21 #3!!
Tom

PS: I'm not speaking for my wife!!

We move pretty slowly on mods - We're going to move in and go camping.

Bestest idea, right there. Give it a good workout before making any mods. Some you think might be good, might not be needed, and you will see some that you had not even considered that will be of great assistance to your own style of camping.

I've done so many additions & modifications that I started a web page showing them. I'm currently installing a Tri-Metric TM-2025-RV battery monitor system.

I installed one of those in my T@da which had dual 12v refers and dual 12v batteries. It is very detailed and had features that I never ended up using. I imagine if you were off grid a lot but for sporadic use it just wasn't me. I have some watches that are that way, the instruction booklet was like 200 pages and complicated, you lose the book, you are lost. Now I just rely upon day or night as to telling time
