Great build list stewlang. We got just about everything you did except the 6.7 fridge and the heat pads for the tanks. We did get the insulation for the tanks and the insulation package. We just took our 19 our for its maiden voyage this weekend and am I ever happy over having decided on the Escape. We were comfortable and everything worked as advertised. I'm sure you will be very satisfied with yours.

Glad you had a good experience with your maiden voyage ... We're looking forward to ours. All of the options were picked with an eye toward maximizing available time away from plugins for two adults and two grandkids. Adding the heat strips is just a bit more insurance in the shoulder seasons if hookups are available.
