No, did not raise the dinette, Kevin. It is the standard. Cannot raise the benches on a 21'. Raising the floor but not the benches can be a problem for many.

Nice to know no graphics and a white belly band is an option. Looks more like an egg. I'm doing that for my next one.

Thanks for mentioning it.
Don't look now but you guys are really showing your age.

How are the Sequoia pedestals as far as wobble is concerned?

Will we see you in September?

Cathy, I really like the very white trailer. Are you going to make it to Fisherman's corner for the rally at the end of Sept so you can show it to us in person?

Would love to see more pictures as you can put them on web site. Looks great. Good ideas for our build. Next year at this time!

It seems it won't quite fit under the bed so will wait until we are home to remove it. Don't have our pillows for the dinette with us.
Could only fit so much in the packed car but Dennis managed to get the WDH out somehow!
Please explain about the "smaller table" and getting rid of it. We want a u shape in our dinette area, and we don't care about being able to make a bed there. But we'd like a table for dining, etc. Not necessarily a big table. I've read several posts about this, but just don't quite get the idea of what folks are doing.

Wood Floors?

Everything about your trailer is great. I really like your selections both inside and out. I do have one question, it looks like you have wood floors. Was this an option?

Don't have to wait; have already peeled off the front decal. Going to strip off the side graphics soon. It goes real easy on a warm day with a regular hairdryer. On the rear of the trailer I removed the 1, leaving Escape2.

Always liked "Bare Escape" and now seeing another one made up our minds. Removing now avoids ghosting on the gel coat.

You're now incognito, the decals are how I could ID Escapes as I pass one on the highway.

Have not really noticed any. Will look at that. It slides left to right and works well.

They are not wood, just that fake stuff that looks like it. Vinyl Armstrong. X2A73, has different names for the same floor.
We like them and they match the counters. Thought the floor would be lighter than the counters but they match very well. You can provide your own flooring but I am not aware that that includes wood.

If your Escape is only a year old or so, you can use warm or hot water on a rag. We peeled all of our decals off of the 19' using warm or hot water.

We do have the Escape tire cover and will put one small name label with "Escape."

Our 21' will have decals which we have bought already. We will get to them later. Too busy seeing spectacular Canada. Have lots of great photos but can't load now.
