What is your Escape getting for Christmas?

Is your Escape getting any presents for Christmas this year? My husband and I will not get our Escape until May, but I being a bit silly bought some things for it for Christmas. I couldn't figure out anything I personally needed this year, but I could think of somethings I wanted for the Escape. So I purchased a couple of Umbra hooks and the Umbra mini cubby.

So what would you buy for your Escape while you are waiting?

What did I buy? Only close to 2000 bucks worth of must-have items for the trailer as none of the stuff from my old pop-up was good enough for an Escape.

I bought a few things already to get ready to tow mine- cargo rack, my brake controller and wiring, etc. So not much for Christmas except a nice dry place to spend the winter away from the wind. Oh, and I ordered some more packing cubes as I liked the few I bought for the last trip. I need a few more things, like a cover for the step (the dogs don't like the metal grate), and a new adapter for the power cord as I can't find the one I used on the trip.

We thought we were the only ones who spent 2000 bucks at Camping World etc. etc. etc.

We have Charlie's two new drawer insets. Another battery tester coming.

We bought our trailer to be (in January) a very fancy kettle with our supposed to be expiring Air Miles points, which the Air Miles people decided to change their minds about in the last minute. Oh well, at least the kettle will look good in our new trailer, with the wooden handle matching the oak finish.

12V Vacuum cleaner, that's a good idea we had thought of that too. What make and where did you buy it? Does it also run on 110V as well?

Thanks.

Past Tents got her presents early. New cook top, range fan, detachable power, lock, grab bar, sliding pantry shelves, and a snazzy color matching belly band. She's not getting anything else for Christmas. Too spoiled already.

Canadian Tire has them on sale for $19. 5 left at the the North Van store. They do not run on 110. Very basic.

A broom ( with the handle cut down ) is much more effective than a 12V vacuum cleaner. Doesn't require charging or emptying.
I have a small 120V vacuum ( about the same size as 12V ) that has much more power. I leave it at home.

New decals in the spring when it warms up and I can remove the old ones.

A pair of portable 50w solar panels, toaster, new cordless vac, grill, and a trip to AZ.

More then I thought.

New door lock set, a generator, some kitchen ware, a few other things, heck better make a list and check it twice so I don't duplicate something. We too are picking up our 21 just before the rally and heading up there to Nk'Mip to attend.
