New member, assist in what I need on my build sheet

I have just ordered a new Escape 19', and completing the build sheet. I am hoping to find out some things that people wish they had added, or not added.

Do you have an inverter? Not sure if I need one. Got the dual 6V batteries and solar panel. Will be doing some boondocking.

I have ordered the distribution hitch, do I need a sway bar?

Any advice at all well be extremely welcome. I need my final list by May 30.

thank you soooo much!

Doing it again, I would order any possible exterior access hatch. Digging around from the inside can be a real PITA.

Yes on this. The original owner of our 19 had three hatches installed and I very much used and enjoyed them. I have two on our 21 and use them a lot too. Outside access is quick and easy and the way to go for me.
We do not have an inverter. We don’t use a lot of “element” appliances so don’t need one.
Definitely get the front box
We have had just the WDH on both units, no anti sway and have no Sammy Kaye action at all. No porpoising either .
Hope this helps.
