wondering do you have a link to those coat hanger thingies to the right of your bathroom door? looks like there is two of them made in some kind of wood with foldup hooks. thanks


Those are the Umbra hooks that a lot of Escape owners use.

Umbra Flip 5-Hook Wall-Mount Rack/Rail, Natural/Nickel https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0000CAPEF..._qHRmxbZKXHQC9

I bought two 5 hook sets and then cut them into 2 with 2 hooks and 2 with 3 hooks and then put them in assorted places around the trailer.

The maps are self-adhesive and dry-eraser-able. Made by the same people who make the whiteboard dry erase sticker I used in other places in the trailer.

Brewster Wall Pops WPE99073 Peel & Stick USA Dry-Erase Map with Marker https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00408AA9O..._oKRmxbYS73PR8

I have a laser pointer for doing show and tell or route discussions or geography lessons for the kiddos or whatever. And an assortment of colored sticky dots to mark places.

It's on its way. Love one-click on Amazon...it's almost like it's free, right?

This is the kind of thing, if it were done when I was a kid, would have made me think I had the coolest Dad ever. (Then again, I was always a geography nerd)

Thanks for sharing it.

That is so great to use for a bunch of trips, being able to make new routes over and over.

Like that spice rack, too.

You look ready to go!

Front Window Condensation

We have the thermal window package, but in cold temps the single-pane front window can still get a fair bit of condensation on it, so I cut Reflectix to fit inside the rock guard and VHB'd it in place. If we close it at night we get zero condensation. On that window anyway.
