I just put a deposit down on a E19

Not sure how to post in here? I have been looking around at all the different Fiberglass trailers for a couple of years. After owning a regular one (roof leaked from day one), to my 1995 Rialta now. Way too old now, for a non mechanical person. I designed & built 4 homes on top of working full time in the field. So I had built a lot inside my Rialta for my dogs. Escape has the only wood interior for me to change, if they won't do it. Add the double axles,(towed horse trailers for 35+ yrs). I want to wander the country, but with Chasing Dog Trials with my aussies too.

Welcome. Their are pros and cons to most RV’s. For us, an Escape 19 has the best Pro to Con Ratio. Your PCR may fit better with different choices than ours, but welcome to the forum. It is an active forum with great collective knowledge.

Welcome! I'm curious, what parts of the interior do you envision wanting changed? Keep in mind that there are bulkheads molded inside at certain areas, and some other wood things placed specifically to stiffen and strengthen the shell. Some things can be changed, and some can't.

I basically want to cut the queen bed down to a double bed. I'm single & it's a huge waste of space. Plus I do like the dining area where it is. As far as just "flipping" them. More Kitchen counter area right side of cooktop. Plus a tall narrow cabinet Frig side(might quiet it down some?), or just a wider wardrobe cabinet. I'm thinking they won't/can't move that support wall(cooktop/bed) over. I can see that some of the Kitchen side has some narrow walls, & the post that are doing "some" supporting & stiffing/cross bracing to that passenger side. But, if they charge you $88, to reinforce so many walls? Tells me they are just the 1/8" dressed up Lauan plywood over 1" x1" 2","framing" to begin with? Not holding too much.
Why I'll slowly be digging through all photos here, to see what is "under" what. Also will maybe have to add my own, if I think I weaken something too much. I've got almost 2 years at this point! :-(
