Trailer: 2013 Escape 21 Classic Number 6, pulled by 2018 Toyota Highlander
If I were you I would call Escape and ask about the plywood thickness currently being used. I believe it may have changed over the years. On our early 21 I believe it was 5/8 inch so I used screws 1/2 inch longer than the plywood i was screwing down. But call them to find out for sure and use a drill stop if you are pre drilling holes.
Strike while the iron is hot. Live every day as if it were your last and one day you will be right.
You might be right Dave. I've heard others mention 5/8". I did measure mine when I installed my table base it didn't seem like they were quite 5/8" but you can't go wrong using 1/2" as the target.
I remember some complaints that the factory screws were protruding through the f.g. on the bottom. Hope they stropped doing that although a bit of Proflex on them wouldn't be a biggie. The water tank, not so much.
