Awesome!

So, first we order our trailer like you did...no cabinet doors, etc.
Then...how much do you charge? :-) How long would we have to hang out in beautiful Victoria while you do your magic?

Very nice work! Really, you might get some orders if you wanted to.

I think we've chosen the same Formica for our 21 (build date, September). Seagrass Strand. It looks good in your pics. (And, like everyone else, I love your cabinetry; especially the curved countertop with oval sink.)

Chris - Your trailer is beautiful and you are quite the crafts-person. I'm with Leonard, when are you going to start taking orders! ;-)

Chris--What a stellar job on your Escape and a true labor of love! Just beautiful--the lines, the wood and the thought you put into the project. We (and apparently lots of folks) are looking forward to seeing it in Osoyoos. Thanks for sharing your creation and talent with all of us.
Peace~

We really like the seagrass strand formica, it goes very well with the walls and chrome finishes.

I will have to think about doing something similar for someone else, but then our trailer would not be unique. Thanks to all who have looked and /or commented, it was fun to work on. I guess I can't help myself, I am still doing small things like adding some lights to the upper cabinets based on ideas here in this forum.

I know Reace and his crew don't have time to fully customize the Escape trailers, but perhaps they know of a cabinet maker (or such) in the area who would be willing to do "after market" customization. That way, the trailer could be delivered by ETI (after final inspection) with just a cabinet framework and then turned over to the cabinet person to finish up the customization ... perhaps using some of the modifications that people have done here on the forum as a starting point. Just thinking out loud ...

There is a person over on FGRV, Robert Johans who does custom rebuilds on old trailers and just started his own custom trailer, Nest Caravans. My point is some of his reconstructions have been breathtaking so these kind of craftsmen are out there, just a matter of finding them.
