We picked up our long-awaited 'Ping from the delivery room last Tuesday. I believe she is a girl but I haven't crawled underneath to really check yet. She is however toilet trained as verified by the "B" in her model number. I won't post pictures just yet because, at this point in her life she looks remarkably like any other 17B. 'Ping however has jet-black hair pinstriping.
The options we chose (and will become apparent as she matures) are:
1. permanent bed at rear (Escape provided the bed mattress instead of cushions)
2. custom burgundy/wine coloured fabric at front.
3. Himalayan Slate countertops (darker than the stock laminate)
4. preps for future gaucho bunk and air conditioner
5. front storage box (love it
6. dual propane and dual 6 volt power
7. high lift axel (brings the height up to the same as my tow vehicle - looks sharp
8. 5.0 cuft fridge (allows you to stock up on relatively "normal" grocercies)
9. Insulation and thermal windows (kinda normal for Canada)
10. removable power cord (cord stores nicely in #5 above)
11. screen room (easy to set up and a necessity in mosquito country
12. exterior shower (for univited relatives and cleaning fish, feet, furry critters, etc)
13. random cabinet modifications
We have no radio, TV, CD player. If I want to listen to music in a campground, I'm sure the guy four sites over will have his music on loud enough for everyone to hear
After a week of driving on Washington's Olympic Peninsula, burning inexpensive American gas (from Alberta
), the only option that we should have purchased right away from Escape is the interior LED lighting package. I didn't realize that there where 9 light fixtures in the cabin.
I'll post some pictures when I have more "action" shots.
