I'd do the same for anyone here.
I already knew that it is about 50' because we have three stripes for our trailer. How much Escape wants to do it so they they are not short is another question that only they can answer. I was not about to say 50'.

Yes, I think 50' might be pushing it, too. So I said to ask Escape, not to not bother measuring, which we have done.

We do not decide how much flooring to provide Escape either. They tell you what they need to install it.

Thanks again Paul...

I'm a "measure twice cut once" kind of guy, so I double checked with the always helpful, always responsive, always nice Sarah of ETI,

and I heard back from her yesterday:

"I had someone go and double check the measurements ..... 45.5’ should be enough but perhaps send 50’ just to be sure."

so it is ordered from ebay. I'm really excited. More than I should be.

Now you have it from those who count. Always ask the installer and no one should assume that someone will do it the way another person does. ETI asks for a lot of fabric, for instance, and some people get back quite a few yards. ETI knows what problems they have had and when they might have to re-do part.

Most installers make it a point to tell you what they need because their customers have no idea.

And, of course, we want to see yours when done!!
