Here's the source for the drawers, one will also fit under the kitchen sink side of a 21: http://www.rolloutkitchendrawers.com/

Yes, we have the info on the plastic drawers, and if we have ETI build the shelves, we need to give them the width of each shelf. We don't want to reinvent the wheel on these, and your photo looks to be the right size. Actually, does anyone know the width of the entire closet? Maybe we should start there.
Thanks!

Welcome Emilio and Christine!
We turned in our final build sheet yesterday! By our records it was sheet number 10... Until you sign it there's so much to think about, we made and changed things based a lot on info on the forum... These folks sure do have a wealth of knowledge - and we are thankful to them !! And now NO MORE CHANGES!
We decided to take out the hanging rod and add 2 shelves...also will put the name of our trailer under the rear window as well.
Our Orientation is Sept 8th! Seems like we can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel!
Loren and Cathy... Maybe we will see you in the vicinity... We hope to camp a few days up there before heading down the coast.

Why not wait until you get it to decide? It is easy to add shelves yourselves.
We pick our 5th wheel up next month. We are sailors...spend a few months a year on the boat....and I use a portable inverter when I need it. We live on 12v and propane on the boat, so I have 12v plugs for most everything.
We will use solar on the camper as we do a lot of boondocking....and we also do deep winter camping for a month or so each winter. We do have a Honda 2000 that we used on the last camper, but are not even bringing it out with us to get the new camper. The solar will take care of things.

We will not need the a/c out there because we live in the subtropics and no matter how hot or buggy it is in the NW, it will seem fine to us!

We plan to spend 3 months in BC, Alberta, and Montana before heading home via Michigan's UP.

We plan to use the wardrobe 100% with shelving and have ordered a combined "closet" where the pantry and microwave normally will go. I need the space for winter...parkas and the like. Will put the microwave on the cabinet next to the front door.

But, we are waiting to see what's what before we put in the shelves. You can get a lot more clothing on shelves than hanging. When you go for months at a time over several climates, you learn to pack and how to make the most of the space.

So, don't fret. It will be fine and you can make adjustments after you get the unit.

Thank you everyone for all the information and ideas. We are super excited to get our Escape in September. Since we have solar and don't need to power much in the way of electric devices, we opted to scratch the inverter. Worst case, we get a portable one down the road. We also decided to bag the shelf in the wardrobe. It makes sense to spend some time to see what our needs really are after we are out in "Hops" for awhile.

Love the name. I'll bet you're a beer drinker!
