Escaping, how I modified my TA

Previously, I had posted photos of the modifications that I had done to our TA trailer in 2015 5.0 TA Modifications.

Since then, I have done a few more changes, and thought it would be interesting to see how I did the changes and to show more detailed photos of the process.

I put together a small website that documents all the mods at https://escape440.wordpress.com

Hope you will find it informative.

Nice work!!
When I looked at your pics of your 17b mods it looked as though you removed your screen door. Did you or is it just out of sight?

When we bought the 17, ETI still had the folding screen door which we did not want. I picked up the newer version a few years later and installed it.

So fine; my favorite features are the KT counter and drawers vs. doors. Love the open pantry area and that table probably folds down in front so as to in effect be out of the way.

Looks as though you upgraded at some point the cooktop as well. Don't see the controls for the one with the stainless grates. Also, are the dinette benches a tad deeper?

Lastly, are you available for customization for us mortals?

The blog is looking great, Chris. I see you have added a few more photos since I last looked in.

That is the Dickinson 2 burner cooktop, just like the one they are holding for me to pick up. It will be a few months yet before I get to use mine.
