There are a few out there that I know... Sara in "Sarandipity" 17B and Red Dog in a 21. Maybe they will weigh in.

Casey Friday was in a 19 but I saw his trailer up for sale at one point so who knows....

Donna. Seems we are launching about the same time. Start counting the weeks. It's easier to count down from 100 weeks out. We are at 72 weeks I think.

Didn't Bill and Gisela move to an Escape when they started full-timing?

oooh, I like THAT! 79-1/2 weeks for me I do better with smaller numbers.

As of one of her last blogs, she's no longer full timing in her stunningly redecorated trailer.

Other than Red Dog, Jon V has probably the most time spent in his Escape while still maintaining a home base...

Kate, I can.... but ETI will no longer install different sinks.

Franke USA FrankeUSA 20-Gauge Single-Basin Drop-in or Undermount Stainless Steel Bar Sink

It wouldn't be hard to change, you would just need to make CERTAIN ETI didn't install a faucet on 8" centers. The sink I referenced uses a faucet on 4" centers and the faucet rests on the sink, not behind it.

I believe ETI will still install different sinks - I am planning on them doing it for us.

They just have more requirements than they used to. The faucet must mount in the counter, not the sink lip, and there are dimension limits.

Ground is pretty dry but looks like rain coming in for a few days. Still knifing in lots of Anhydrous. Had a spill about 10 miles from us yesterday but nobody hurt. Wind was right. Good luck this spring.

We have been fulltiming in a Four Wheel Camper (pop-up truck camper), but we just upgraded to an Escape 5.0 and once we finish with registration, we're off again! You can check out our travels at Two Plus Lu – Full-time RVers, boondockers, and enthusiasts of our dog. or instagram @twopluslu

The previous owners of our 19 had been full timing in it for about 6 months at the time of our purchase a year ago. They moved up to a larger Bigfoot model.
