Nice job on the mods Jim, I had a teak floor in a Scamp 16' that I had and really like it.

I am sure!

You know I have read comments, praises, etc here for years but truly until you walk in one you don't get it! Beautiful trailer, and the room they get out of 2 extra feet is crazy cool. And the Escape owners attending the Roundup say that it's just as easy to pull as the Casita!

+3 on the teak shower grate. All land yachts should have one. I made mine from teak offcuts and S.S. screws I'd had for 35 yrs. Can I be that old? Well, old enuf to slip on a slick shower pan. Better than a mat. Good air circulation discourages mold; doesn't rot; don't find yourself standing in 2" of water if you get caught using the floor drain as a grey tank monitor.

Jim, looks great. On your teak floor, how did you secure the bottom and top pieces together? I don't see any screws on the top, glue?

Thanks

I purchased 2 pre made floor pieces and then modified them. Here is the link
Amazon.com: Creative Bath Eco Styles Bath Mat, Bamboo: Home & Kitchen
appears they are Bamboo, not teak- my bad....

Good for the exterior shower as well..

One of those platforms would be great for the exterior shower as well....kinda pricy though!

Today I install a Jensen Heavy Duty all band including weather found here
Waterproof Radio | JHD910 JENSEN Heavy Duty AM/FM/WB Mini Waterproof Radio
I installed a spare 12v outlet next to a light for power(# 4 12v outlets now) and used this neat led 12 power socket that has a push button on/off switch. This make it real easy to power on/off without having to reach the radio itself. The speakers are hidden on a top shelf held in place with stickum. Antenna is a small 6". I installed one of these in my other Egg-NestEgg and was real pleased with it.

I also installed an extra grab handle by the door interior. I found myself grabbing the trim while exiting, leaving handprints all over the trim and it was also not that secure. I added a safety screw and attached the trim to my couter top, real secure now.

OMG - I remember you saying your Escape came with everything, because you and Reace worked out all the details during the course of its building. With these little extra tweaks, you're never going to want to come in off the road!

I gotta stay busy to keep out of the bar, these are the little things, you are right, I had Escape do all the major ones.
