Dueling showers sounds like a winner to me. Thanks for the advice

Worked great in the 19 so we're doing the same in the 21.

FYI, our exterior antenna was not permanently mounted... it was on a telescoping "mast" that I bungee-ed to the spare tire when we camped in areas where the cell signal was weak.
I will talk to them about the extra utility door

I actually did the last 2 myself, but is something the factory offers. Lots of other options I like too. Reading through past threads on the topic will give you lots to feed on.



Why dual showers? One will perform all functions
Check, check, and check... I like them all

We have the u shaped dinette and like it. I also did not have the dinette table installed. Instead I installed a Lagun table mount. There is lots of info on this if you search Lagun on this forum. It was one of the best modifications to our trailer.

How much modification was there needed to do the Lagoon table? We were originally thinking of doing the telescopic table stand.

It’s not a difficult installation. The rear wall of the u shaped dinette must be reinforced and a brace from that wall to the floor installed. It sounds complicated but it’s not. I have pictures of my install and table and can send them if you want. There are several install pics on the forum threads also..

We have used the passenger side tap for cleaning the dog and washing down stuff with no problem. The supplied coiled hose will reach well behind the trailer. But for those that like lots of stuff, I guess there is really no harm. Did you actually do this on your trailer?

I very much love the Springfield telescoping pedestal with a 4-way slide. I just could not give up a full sized table for our use and the Lagun would be very stressed under the loads we put on it.

I do like the Lagun mount and looked at them a few times installed in Escape trailers. What I love most is the easy removal of the mount, where all I can do is lower to bed height, which does make for an excellent lounging area.

you can ask for an amber "glass" on the entry door light, too. less glaring for you and outsiders.

I am short, so I asked them to wait till I got there to put the black assist handle on. Just took a minute, and mine is quite a bit lower than the usual install...it straddles the belly band.

Yes I did Jim. I have one of those spigots for the curbside for our morning coffee as well as washing the pots. The dogs use the opposite side, keeps the mess away from the door. Also got 2 hoses and sprayers.

I find exiting sideways using the interior pole and the exterior handle is my preferred exit strategy.

I wanted the outside shower for clean up, not for showering. It made more sense to put it on the passenger side but my wife did not want me spraying water around the shaded awning side. While we were arguing on the show room floor our sales person said why not get both sides. Problem solved.

After one year the passenger side gets used most often and is perfect for dish washing in our outside portable kitchen. The drivers side shower has been very handy for spraying down sewer attachments and those nasty clean up jobs like the bbq.

Jim, I think they forgot to put the pole in my 17.

That said, I did have the interior left wall reinforced and ETI put another grab handle there for me. So, essentially, I can do the same thing.
