Wow super nice. Do I understand Escape right that the reflectix in your photos is an option and if a person ordered the standard escape, it comes with just the vinyl against the fiberglass walls? Thanks.

Wow, that oven looks bigger than expected. I was told you only lose one cabinet, looks like you lose more than that. Hopefully mine will work out.

No the reflectix is standard down to the belt line, so to speak, the extra insulation continues it down behind the scenes and includes thermal windows.

Is the belt line the bellyband where the top and bottom mold comes together or is it the reflectix line shown in these photos. Comes about three fourths of the way down, a little above the floor in this thread? The standard escape would have vinyl from here down to the floor and bare fiberglass wheel wells? Thanks.

about 3/4 way down, so the standard is 75% covered with reflectix and white vinyl, the extra package gives you 100% coverage down to the floor,behind the furniture, plus the windows and the foam option package then covers the floor underneath outside.

You lose the cupboard directly under the oven, then they move the drawers over which makes the cupboard under the sink a little smaller. We (I) debated a lot over the loss of cupboard space which Dave and Donna D thought was funny since I love to bake when camping (use the Omnia oven and the Cobb) so we went for it. It's so much more space then we had!

Kathie, you've got the oven... I'll bring the chocolate chip cookie dough!

Exciting times ahead!

I've been wondering why I have not seem to have caught this thing going around. It finally hit me today that owning a metric trailer must be providing some form of immunity. The only way to prove that is for someone to start making a model 5719.

Hope your new hatchling serves you well.

Roy I suspect it more to do with geography than metric.... they are after all built in the land of metric.

Problem with them on this coast is they are hard to ignore! They follow people everywhere! I tried to run away last winter so they wouldnt torment me but every where I went and the further south I went the more I saw! In fact while on the road for 8 weeks between here and south/eastern Arizona I saw more Escapes than any other brand of fiberglass trailer. As I also have the 4' itis it was very frustrating! But at the same time made me a proud Canadian

Ooh that's bad. They don't make a 20' yet. I'm starting to wonder then if the condition has been misnamed. Perhaps it should be called 21' itis. Then I'd need someone to produce a model 6400 to test my theory of immunity.
