That's why I asked the question about the list. We are not novices to trailers, just to Escapes. I would not think to check out the awning position,let alone document. We will be going to the rally after pick up, so we figured by then we would have gone through most areas of trailer. However, We are open to any
suggestions,experiences or ideas for things to be aware of. It's a long trek back to Texas and surprises aren't always fun. I have read almost everything posted and you all have done a good job helping us build ours. I'm still trying to get ready. Only about 6 weeks to Chilliwack! �� Thank you all for info you've shared.

If you are not novices to trailers and camping you will not have any problems with your Escape. They use the same furnace and water heaters as well as a/c and other items found in most trailers. Just listen during your orientation and once you get to Osoyoos there will be 150 other Escapes there to help you if you have further questions. Concentrating on making notes may prevent you from an important item during orientation.

Hmmm....maybe that is normal? I did send an email with photos to Reace and Tammy seeking their advice on this. I will let everyone know what they say.

Fred,
Can you get a measurement of the gap? Finger sized? Is the gap bigger because you zoomed in?
What does it look like at ground level without zoom? It appears there is a gap in all of ours? But is one gap bigger than the others?
