Custom Options for Wild Thing
One of the many things I love about Escape Trailers is that the company allows for quite a bit of customization when building your travel trailer. Most other RV companies are limited to stock options and to their inventory on hand, and often can’t accommodate any custom requests. Each Escape Travel Trailer is built to order, entirely from scratch, and to each customer’s specifications. In addition to cosmetic changes like fabric finishes, flooring, and counter tops, Escape also allows you to choose from a wide variety of add-on options.
I chose several options including a custom cabinet next to the front door, flip top tables, additional electrical outlets and additional lighting fixtures. I added a switch by the front door to make it easy to turn on all the overhead lights when entering the trailer and an additional exterior light to aid me when unhitching in the dark. 12v wiring drops are being placed in several areas of the trailer so I will have the flexibility to add components in the future without difficulty.
A custom cupboard is being added that can be accessed from a door inside the trailer as well as a separate hatch door outside the trailer. I plan to use this area to keep muddy shoes! Instead of a small counter top beside the loft area, I’m having that space built out into a full wardrobe closet. This little trailer will have more than enough storage space for all my gear.
Here’s a peek at some of the custom decorator options I chose for the interior:
You can see I went quite bold in my choice of fabric for the dinette cushions, but what else would you expect in a Wild Thing!! The solid blue fabric resting on the seat beside the floral print will be used in the narrow window valances throughout the trailer. I think these choices reflect my personality better than the tan and brown standard option that you see in the trailer model. The fabrics are indoor/outdoor weight and should wear well. Luckily, I am a seamstress so I can make a few different sets of cushion covers and change the look of the trailer periodically.
I chose neutral blue/gray for the counter tops and flooring to provide the greatest flexibility in future decorating options!
This Formica will cover the kitchen counter tops, the dining room table, and the small flip up table extensions located at the end of the kitchen counter and on each side of the dinette area.
The flooring is also a gray neutral that should wear well, blend with a variety of decor options and lend itself to a colorful area rug!
The cabinets in Escape Trailers are a honey oak color and should look great with my colorful fabric choices. I can’t wait to see the interior finished! I should start seeing photos of the production build of Wild Thing starting next week. How cool is that?!
