Wow.
Now, what do you regret leaving off the option list?

Oh, and some other ideas..

This TV Tuner plugs into your laptop.Voila! HDTV with a PVR. Very small. $95

The Outdoor Screen room is really quit compact ( this is after being used...) My wife's shoes are a size 6...

We added the Surge Protector - based on stories I read about here...

Bathroom window for light and venting.

Roof line appearance and Storage

Someone earlier asked about solar panels, Air-conditioning and Max Fan appearance and clearance. Here we show that all of these things fit, oh so snugly, in the carport..

Also the Storage box, with dual batteries, is almost full of outdoor gear and is really helpful with the loss of space due to the rear u-shaped dinette design.

Aluminum wheels, side access door and the matching truck graphics


That's enough - but let me know if you want to see any other options I haven't shown. Earlier in this thread is a complete listing of what we ordered - which was quite extensive and has a number of other items...

Whew! Most impressive, Don. We can hardly recognize that it is the same trailer and model as ours. I certainly do like that couch set-up in the bed area. Nice fabric, too.

From the 2nd roof top pic, it looks like the fridge is now vented via the top of the trailer as opposed to the side. Is that correct? If so, does anyone know when Escape started doing that. Also, what was the reason for the change - does it offer advantages over the prior location?

Don - That's one sharp looking rig you've got & you weren't kidding when you stated that it was decked out.

The new roof top vent is with the new refer that Reace is now using, I think it is 4.5 c/ft. Escape started doing that this summer around July. The reason was the larger Dometic was no longer available and Reace requisitioned the newer but smaller model.

Really like how Reace did the rear dinette. Your trailer looks awesome.

Don,

What a GRAND Trailer. I really like the Extra drawers below wardrobe. Any chance you could include a picture of the inside of the wardrobe.

Thanks Jim
