Took a trip up to ETI last Friday. Great people and many thanks to Sarah and her patience with all my questions. I have a 17B on order for a March 2017 delivery. Wanted to check out the new 17B and figure out my options.
Has anyone added:
>A locking door such as the one below for their water inlet / city water to their Escape? I asked if this could be added to my build and it cannot be.
Locking City/Gravity Hatch, Polar White
>A flush mount 2 burner stove top to their 17B? I've heard of the Dickenson Marine being added but to a 19ft I think. And Sarah said the tear drop 2 burner SMEV won't fit.
>Any dog friendly mods? I have a 70lb AmStaff who will be traveling with me and he likes his creature comforts.
By the way, loved the new Dometic awning. I have to admit I was really against it. However, it appears to be very well build and operated very smoothly. The manual alternative awning is the Carefree model and needs legs to stand on so I think I'll stick with the Dometic. Also, the new frameless windows were very nice. They don't open a lot but you do get an opening back window which is a plus for me. It was a sunny warm day and the trailer felt comfortable inside. I took a hard look at the spray foam insulation. I was considering putting in hard foam instead but after seeing how well the spray foam was sealing everything including the black/gray/fresh water lines I was sold.
Thanks to everyone who posts their mods and questions / observations on the forum. It's a great resource and I'm glad it's available for us newbies.
