Really love those door handles and hinges! Adds a lot to the trailer!

Very handsome! And I love those door handles and hinges as well! Would you mind sharing where you found them?

I loved the look of the black hardware, too, until I counted up how many hinges were needed even in the little 15. Youza.

I still may do it sometime as it's an easy change out.

Ha! Haven't counted yet. C o u l d be a deal breaker. Then again, after all the other options I'm choosing, that's probably small change. (I keep telling myself: this is your home, this is your retirement . . . Now I understand the bumper sticker that says, "I'm spending my kids' inheritance!"

KarenH and Ellen,
I have replaced hardware in sticks and bricks kitchen. If you are handy enough to do the replacement of the parts, you can take the existing hinges off, spray paint them black (if you are planning to use black hardware) and save a lot there. Just a thought.

Re Black Formica

Hi. Diana and I have black Formica in our new Escape 19 (Basalt slate 3690-58) and we love it. Also got a number of positive comments on it at the rally last weekend.

Ellen, the darker Formica can look very classy. I particularly like the dark Formica in Karen's 15, which I think she mentioned has the radiance finish, not the matte. If I were going dark, I'd probably go with radiance, provided it's available for that color.
