Enjoy the journey.

Saturn 5 to break the surly bonds of Earth and a used Highlander engine with 225,000 miles on it to push the Escape the rest of the way.

haha, good question

In this case, tow vehicle is ... imagination and Photoshop

I was doing a two day test of systems (and relaxing) at Surfside in Parksville. One evening, I saw the glow of sunset in the recently purchased Escape 19's windows. While looking at the photo later, I thought the orange glow color looked similar to things seen on Mars.

Also,
Thanks to this forum and the people who keep in going ... and also the members who contribute info and stuff here.
Has been a helpful resource while deciding to buy an Escape, as well as interesting to see what others are up to with their Escapes.
Much appreciated

the real life tow vehicle and 19, heading back home.

Everything is working well, thankfully.

Did need to tighten the kitchen sink drain though, due to leak when draining sink. I was looking for that though ... since I read something about it here on this forum. Thanks for the heads up.

Very happy with this unit .. quality, looks, design, and professional friendly people at Escape Industries.

And another perfectly good afternoon slips away to beer 30. Love the actual rig with red graphics and the red tow vehicle. Nice photo.
