My New Escape 17

After a 3000 mile trip across the US I picked up my Escape 17B at Chilliwack. I took a number of photos of both Escape's new plant, and, of course, my trailer. They are available at my LakeshoreImages blog at http://www.lakeshoreimages.com/2011trip009.html. I did get the front storage box, so I included a bunch of photos of it for those considering it. It is a tight fit with dual propane tanks & a power jack, but it works.

Re: My New Escape 17

Congrats, and thanks for the photos. I am considering upgrading to the front storage box too. You need to remove the "." at the end of the address string to get the page to open though.

Re: My New Escape 17

Jon,

Your photos and the accompanying itinerary descriptions are great. We tried desperately to enhance your photos to see whether one of the Escapes in progress was ours. But, we couldn't get the resolution any higher without top-secret photo enhancement software. Bummer! We take delivery at the end of June. Ours also has the dual batteries and solar panels.

If you come back through Montana, take a stop in Missoula to see us.

Karen and Klaus Sitte

Re: My New Escape 17

Wow!
Congratulations. What a beauty! Thank you for the pictures, too. Is that a back up camera above the rear window? If so, is it wireless?
I know you will thoroughly enjoy your trip. (Nice t.v. too.)
Sandra

Re: My New Escape 17

You will find out how handy the front box is. I really enjoy having one for my 19ft Escape. It is a place to put all those trailer things. Your unit is nice looking and thank you for taking pictures of the factory.

Re: My New Escape 17

The back up camera is wired. Reace did a great job on the installation.

I purchased a 2 camera system from http://www.rearviewsafety.com/index.php/ with a 5" monitor & trailer kit (includes connectors for hooking & unhooking). Not inexpensive, but since I travel alone both cameras help. It also provides a beautiful rear view mirror!
