Re: If You Could Design My new Trailer and Pick My Options......

Brought home another load of new gear today. It is like stocking a new apartment.
Most proud of our new Dickenson SS Grill. What a beautifully made BBQ.
BTW - Spent 2 hours or more on the phone last night with Rease on our mods and various questions. What an amazing customer experience working with Rease and Tammy.
We go into gestation in under two weeks so getting our decisions firmed up.
I will provide you all a detailed list of what we have chosen to do / buy / modify as a direct result of this Forum's great input. Trust me - you spent my money.... :

Great BBQ,eh? Which model did you get? Our Spitfire has gotten a ton of use this year, and it really shows. Not as shiny as new, but working just great. Just love using it.


It sure is nice to get great service from a manufacturer. Heck, they are great to party with too.

Bought the same - Spitfire. A design beauty.

Have you tried "Bartenders Friend" as a cleaner. We use it on all SS and it is very good. Powder or cream. Cheap. Worth looking for.

We will also be soon looking at purchasing a more compact grill to accompany our new Escape 19. I have been browsing the various grill options available and the Dickenson Spitfire does stand out, although there seems to be a huge variation of prices depending on where you look. Would you be willing to share the prices that you guys paid for yours and where you got them?

regards
dave

Re: If You Could Design My new Trailer and Pick My Options......

Don, thanks for the suggestion, I have heard reference to it before, and will look into it.

Dave, I bought direct from Dickinson and got a better deal than even the best I could find elsewhere, listed from $280 to $400. They did ask that I keep the pricing I worked out with them confidential, likely to not compete directly with their other resellers. I will send you a PM.

I have to say that now that I have a BBQ set up with the low pressure quick connect that Escape installed, I absolutely love it. It is very quick to get set up and works well. I bought all the fittings and hoses locally and just got the low pressure adapter from them, along with the Aussie Griddle and the BBQ.

I bought the same. Not much more than a Webber.

I ordered this cover (for the 17' about $70.00, $110.00 delivered)and just put it on today. It seems to be made of the same material as the cover we got from Escape when we bought the tailer, which was good, but only lasted two extreme Alberta winters, plus one more with duct tape! This one cost a lot less! Our previous cover ripped from the weight of the snow over the TV antennae, and seemed to be eaten by squirrels as well! Even if I have to buy a new cover every few years, it will be worth it, as already I have stains on my roof from wet leaves.
Check the feedback on this ebayer first. Apparently the cover has been less than delightful to some folks.
Dave

Re: If You Could Design My new Trailer and Pick My Options......

I bought the Camping World cover on sale. Should be fine for Vancouver climate. Cost a little more but easy to warranty / return.
Bought the wheel coves too :

Re: If You Could Design My new Trailer and Pick My Options......

Hi: DonM... Does this mean you can start some under cover work Did you pick up a supply of DryZAir www.dryzair.com to remove excess moisture from inside the trailer while in storage I've always thought the best place to store a fiberglass trailer is under a palm tree somewhere down south. Just make sure it's not a "Coconut Palm"!!! Alf
