- Wanting to buy an Escape or Bigfoot
Howdy from Texas!
We have decided to transition to full-time rv living. In order to continue working and meet my obligations while on the road, we'll need a bigger space. We tow this with a 2015 Ford Explorer that has a 5000 lb tow capacity. The Explorer handles it with ease. We love this trailer and the ease of towing, parking, features, etc. but we need to go bigger.
So, we are offering our 2011 17B for sale
price is $17,500.
It has all the standard features of a 17B plus the following upgrades:
Air conditioner ready (reinforcing of roof to support weight
and wiring, including breaker in power box) but no air conditioner (AC installed August 2018 by Escape)
3 burner stove
All LED lights
2” bike mount
Custom Formica finish (replaced with bamboo)
Window at stove (fixed pane - doesn't open)
Reinforced walls in wardrobe cabinet
ready (but I’m not sure where the wires are)
Additional 12V outlet
Extra insulation and dual pane windows
Storage box in front
Added by previous owner:
110W portable solar
using a Morningstar MPPT controller and BM-1 current monitor
Additional 12V outlet (including an external one)
Added additional LED light
above dinette with a dimmer
Piezo starter for stove burners (no matches needed)
Baffling in fridge
compartment for better cooling
Added shelves in wardrobe cabinet along with LED lighting
Accumulator at water pump
Replaced wire from battery
to power converter box with #8 marine wire
New 15” tires
and rims (including spare) in April 2017
LED on water heater to indicate heater is on (vs the existing light
which indicates that it is igniting)
Recent upgrades by me:
New (last month) Dometic 3-way fridge
New AC installed at Escape in Chilliwack (frame recall work done at the same time)
Custom interior finishes including denim fabric, bamboo counters, galvanized panels for magnets, photos, etc, chalkboard door, galvanized-look backsplash)
New water pump last October
New 6 volt batteries
Rain Gutters over door and slider window
Roof vents replace (with the exception of the Maxx Fan but resealed to Maxx Fan vent with Proflex)
Additional USB charging ports installed
We are currently in Alabama and heading across the South toward Florida, then the Carolinas and back across the central US to be back in CA at the end of May. If this looks interesting to you, PM me and we'll see if we can arrange a meeting.
