Old Escape??

Going through our pick-up photos from last year, I found this one that I don't think I posted. From what I remember, Reace told me it was an old Escape ... or maybe just an old fiberglass ... that they were redoing. How things have changed.

I'd say the change was for the better.

No guys, that's not an old Escape. It's a 1978 Biggar. A totally different brand. I'm betting it's Marina's. She's been having Reace do maintenance and modifications on her trailer for a number of years. She's even been to the ETI rally with it a time or two. This is a picture of her trailer:

For those on FiberglassRV, check out all the interior pics. Pretty dang fabulous for something nearly 40 years old. The Biggar, the better. - Fiberglass RV

I know someone would remember what it was! It did look amazing ... and now that I know it's over 40 years old, I'm REALLY impressed. Thanks Donna!

Yes, it's spent more time at ETI than production Escapes. It's probably slowing morphing into an Escape.

No doubt it is Marina's. She, along with Tony (her furkid), have been to the last couple rally's. A wonderful SOB addition to the group.

Thanks for the photos. That certainly is an unusual front.
Some fancy interior also. Obviously the high end at the time.

I'm betting the interior of Marina's trailer now bears little resemblance to the photos on FGRV.....

Actually, she's glamped it up a bunch. Crystal chandelier, bead work, etc.

Ah, she went the other way. Well, tastes differ. World would be boring if we were all the same.
