So Ron, you are getting a 19 foot with the 44 inch wide bed/dinette up front and a same size dinette in back and additional cabinets to fill the space leftover? That sounds great for you. Seems like Escape really works for their customers.

Lots of good ideas abound there amongst the owners, those waiting while their units are being built, and a few wannabe's (you know who you are, right DD )
that must be me

1-I just talked to Rease and they are reserving a june 2010 for me.
So, does that mean you'll hang out in the PNW for a while so you can attend the Oregon Gathering in July???

Sounds like an awesome plan Ron. So do they change the rear permanent bed into a U dinette or benches when they do that? What's the time frame on getting a 19 delivered now?
Well it doesn't really work out like that.
One would suspect that if you saved 16" in rear bed width you would get 16" in lengthened cabinetry.
Nope
Rease told me you can push the cabinetry back no more than about 10 inches or it starts to cover up the rear window.

So

Just thinking here:
Instead on lengthening the cabinetry why not add a 16" counter top, one on each side?
That will fit under the windows.
You could have drawers or a door.
I can always use more counter top space to put things on so that I forget to put them away so that they fall on the floor when I tow down the road..
That would be cool.
Also I think it would keep it airy and open looking.
Maybe only 12" so its easier to get in and out of the dinette.


I would love to measure every piece of it and put it in my CAD system.
A solids model maybe.

Anyway now just messing around.
I'll get with imagineer, Rease early next year.

Just curious as to why you'd order a new camper without A/C, Ron. (You have it in your current Casita, right?)
Though we've only used our A/C a few times, it's a welcome relief when we need it.
I can understand the lack of microwave. A microwave is easy to add later on if you decide you want one.

I tend not to go into hot country in the summer.
Particular attention should be given the chosen verb.


Donna, please cut and past those old posts here!

LOL

But I think, and I'll have to check further, that the trailer has "hard points" and wiring all set up to add an AC later should I choose to add the weight and the drag.

Only if I get some fresh Oregon fruits and vegetables.

Hi Ron

Congratulations on your ordering your new Escape. Know you'll love it. We leave on September 1st, final destination southern Utah, possibly northern Arizona. We'll be travelling with friends in a 73 Boler. Will give you a call if we get to Kanab.
check your messages, Ellen

You have my cell number and I don't have it on half the time

I'd sure like to see a floor plan for the front bed 19... I don't see it on the Escape Trailer website for the floor plan for the 19 footer.. Yeah, I see the dinette/bed, but no dinette in the back floor plan.

it doesn't exist.. these will be mods I'll have to pay for.
But I am thinking of having two dinettes to keep it simple.
Put the bed or the dinette where you want it when you want it.

It all depends on what Rease can do and how much it will cost.

Okay, I get it now Ron. Seems reasonable to me. I too know what the back end of my truck looks like and prefer to sit and eat a meal looking at something other than that. A big back window is great too!!

Bet once Reace makes one for you Ron, he'll make it a standard layout that others can order. It's only the first one that's tough.

Reace is great at listening and making stuff work, if he can. Originally the kitchen and the fridge/closet were reversed. In talking with him I had said I would prefer the kitchen to be on the door side, a bit more room, and it would keep all the full depth cabinetry and bath in one row. All he needed to do was add some room support on the kitchen side with he did with a full depth gable between the kitchen and the bed (which is a nice divider anyway. Once he put this on the site as a Plan 'B' (For Bennett Tammy says ) this is what everyone opted for. They dropped the other layout completely.

I believe that it is this level of commitment to what customers want which has influenced their success just as much as the quality of the product they provide.

Looks like I'll have to plan a route through Kanab when I head south in 2010 to check out the Escape.
Breakfast at Parry Lodge?

Hi: ronsmith100... The new roof mount A/C units Reace is using are a very low profile!!! About 1/2 as high as ours is. I really like them
Alf S. North shore of Lake Erie p.s. your visit to the Escape Factory must have been very productive???
