Barbara,
We really like our stainless stuff. If you had asked us a week ago about rust, we would have said 'No'. We were out camping up the Pacific Coast for a couple of days this week (San Simeon State Park --nice place!), and noticed a spot of rust in the sink. We think it was where a small iron fry pan sat for part of a day until we did the dishes. Other than that, stove and hood are great.
P.S. we are going to change out the sink for one that has the faucet assembly on the back of the sink instead of through the counter. We don't like water collecting behind the sink lip.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but with the sink and and faucet as one, water still collects on the countertops.

Pretty sure it's Giallo Granite (first photo).

BUT

There are alot of build photos that suggest its lighter than that - more like Geriba Gold Granite (second photo). Give Escape a call and confirm it.

Yes, I thought so Pat. I think that some of the photos I've seen of the lighter one were from older trailers and they've since changed the stock color.

The colour and how light the Formica appears depends on the exposure, the camera, colour balance used under what lighting, the monitor used for processing the picture and other factors, making posting pictures of Formica quite useless.

Also Robert it is called Giallo Granite . I would need to measure but we ordered extra Formica which I used for the back of the stove . I have a good size piece if anyone could use . They can have it for free if they need for their trailer . If they needed it shipped I would need shipping cost though . Any interested let me know . Pat

I wasn't looking at any specific picture. I was just making a general comment. I can change appearance of a picture on my laptop, simply by adjusting the angle of the screen.

If someone knows what samples they are interested in from looking at the Formica site, they can call Formica and larger samples will be sent than what is at the box stores.

We have a standard mirror in 21' bath but not full length.

I just happened on a picture of a piece of your Escape somewhere on the forum and noticed the decal color. Is it Teal, or Real Teal? Are there pictures of a side somewhere? Thanks.

That would be great--I appreciate the effort. That's the color I'm pretty sure I will choose.
