What a great build. Are the backup lights controlled by a switch inside the Escape or were they wired through the 7 pin tow connector to your tow vehicle ? It appears that your invertor has a remote control panel.
Thank you Jubal

The backup lights are controller by a lit switch on the dash, using the 7th wire.
The inverter also has a remote illuminated switch on the side of the storage bank.
We opted to put two shelves inside the wardrobe which we may remove at some point, as we are unsure which will work best. I'll add a picture next week.

The Escape folks were great craftsmen. So much depends on their skills.

Don, I am envious of your covered storage location for yor trailer, I had to stand on the roof of our van and sweep the snow off of the roof of our trailer yesterday, there was probably 2 feet up there. I just don't like all that weight on the roof. Also don't want all that melting snow seeping around the sealed stuff. A covered car port like what you have is ideal. Very nice trailer by the way, I hope after its all said and done you will be happy with it.

Hi Don

What colour is the striping you chose for the trailer?

Trailer looks good.
