Congratulations! We also have one on order and retired from Dallas, Tx and have been full timing in our Casita for over a year now and decided to upsize just a tad. Will be picking our 21' rig up on Jan. 5th, 2017.

Ginger, there's TONS of information on this forum, which will be a great help for you in deciding which trailer you want (if you are getting one; your stats on the left don't list an Escape trailer). And then in deciding what options you want to order and everything else. When I first joined, a year ago, I spent TONS of time on the forum, reading as many posts as I could. I'd look through each topic section to see which threads I hadn't read or which ones sounded interesting. I even read ones that didn't seem that interesting by their title (which can be rather vague at times). I learned something from just about all of the threads.

I bookmarked a bazillion of the threads, many times with additional information in the bookmark as sometimes the title of the thread wasn't very helpful as to why I was bookmarking it. I have multiple folders in my browser's bookmark section that relate just to the trailer, which greatly helped (inside accessories, outside accessories, items bought, travel, other, plus 3 separate forum bookmarks for inside, outside and travel - such as how to check your battery levels; things like that). I started a spreadsheet listing all of the helpful stuff I found in the threads, such as options to add to the trailer that aren't listed in ETI's build sheet form. I bookmarked products that were listed in threads that others were using. All of this was very helpful when we ordered last December and it didn't take very long to complete the build sheet as I had learned so much previous to ordering. As well as for when I order the things we need for the trailer.

Have fun learning!
