Year 2011
Make Escape
Model Trailer
Length 19'
Packages Da Works!
History Hatched January 27/11, & been taken all over BC ever since!
Interior
Extra 12V & 120V outlets - very useful.

Chose 3 shelves instead of closet.

Extra insulation & thermal windows make it very cosy, even in snow.

REALLY appreciate having the extra opening window over the sink & in the bathroom.

Didn't anticipate using the oven much, but we seem to use it more than the stovetop!

Nice to have the optional microwave, when on shore power. It uninstalls very easily, for an extra cupboard during boondocking...

Extra door under the bench, by the door, very handy.

Worth getting the dual electric-propane hot water tank.

Vents installed in all cupboards, keeps them aired-out.

Exterior
95W Solar - seems to work great, even during socked-in rainy days. Dual 6V batteries, all LED lights, make power consumption a non-issue.

Exterior shower very useful.

Have 5 exterior LED lights, great for setting up in the dark.

Extra row of brake lights - hopefully no one will rear-end us!

Exterior 12V outlet, by the right rear
hatch. Extra hatch also very useful.

Fibreglass box is a must for chocks/blocks/icky stuff.

Really appreciate the clips to hold up the hatch doors - very useful.

Digital antenna works great in the city, but must be IN a city, not NEAR a city...

Customization
Does purple shag carpet count?

Renovations
Alarm system, of course.

Other Information
We find the gaucho cot uncomfortable for adult-sized people, so it's only a last resort, for the kid's smaller friends. It's also very heavy.

Absolutely recommend the installed solar package: don't own a stinky loud generator, but we were able to boondock 2.5 weeks, charging our electronic toys during the daytime, without any issues!

Tow Vehicle
Old, but it's paid for & does the job. V6 with tranny cooler.
