Re: Escape 19 recommended alterations

I posted a solution for the table the factory lock did not work so I used a bunk lock to lock the table while driving. I have not had leg problems. You could change to marine posts that twist lock at the base. Lighting overhead is a problem. If you look at a Scamp or Casita they have lights on the ceiling. On the roof you can see the buttons that cover the screws and rivets. I like the fact that Escape does not want anymore holes in the roof.

Re: Escape 19 recommended alterations

I attempted to stabilize the table by first pounding on a 2x4 set above each leg. That helped a little. Then made 1x2 and tried to attach it to the wall under the babble using a Scotch bra d double faced tape that I have had success using on other projects. Held for a few days, then failed. Am in the process of looking for a good glue which works on wood and vinyl. Will try that in conjunction with the double faced tape(to hold the 1x2 while the glue dries). Will post the results of that aqttempt.

Re: Escape 19 recommended alterations

I don't find that the table is that unstable. It does rub too much on the vinyl on the insulation too much on one side, and I plan to move the mounts just a tad.

I have a plug on either side of the kitchen counter which pretty much covers the use anywhere on that small counter. There are many ways to make coffee that do not use an electric pot, most of which make superior coffee. I would highly recommend one of them, especially if you plan to be off the grid at all.

Re: Escape 19 recommended alterations

With regard to the window height: I am short and when I sat in the 17B I too had difficulty seeing out: I asked that the bench be made taller (which also creates a bit more storage space) and voila! Reace was very accommodating to that alteration. I also had a GFI outlet put on the front below the below the stove top for that and other appliance use. That way, I can use a hair dryer in the bath ( I had the door hinges switched.) as well. Hope this helps.

Re: Escape 19 recommended alterations

Get 2 tail/turn/stop lights mounted on each side of the rear window. It is good to be seen on the highway.
