Our new Escape

We headed out Wednesday morning to pick up our new Escape 17B. After the customary tour of our new trailer with "Super Dave", we
checked in with Reece and Tammy to handover the cheque and get some more questions answered. We headed over to Trademasters (a couple of blocks away) to pick up a motorcycle hitch for the back of our trailer. We were parked in their lot for less than 5 minutes when we experienced the same thing as many other owners have - someone approached us to ask us about the Escape. So we gave our first "tour" less than 10 minutes after picking up our trailer! Luckily Tammy had handed us a stack of referral cards so we were prepared.

Enclosed below is the first Official picture of our new Escape.

Re: Our new Escape

I love the chrome wheels. When did they add that to the option list?

Re: Our new Escape

The "chrome wheels" are actually aluminum mags which were on the option list when I was deciding what I wanted -not sure how long they have offered them. I wanted something that looked a little nicer with our Tacoma's wheel and I think they fit the bill nicely. They're a bit lighter weight as well than the regular painted mags. After a discussion about tongue weight with Reece regarding the Suzuki 125 my husband wants to put on the back for hunting, Dave and I acted as car test dummies on the rear bumper. It was determined that we'd have to pack everything up front of the trailer to stabilize the tongue weight. Good thing we got the storage box up front - more space to pack some more weight on.

Re: Our new Escape

Your 17B looks great with the front box. It adds to the look of the trailer and I like the polished wheels.

Re: Our new Escape

Yeah, I decided to go "naked" on the rock shield - on the off chance I might add my own graphic design at some point down the road.
I was hoping not to offend Tammy & Reece by requesting no emblem on the rock shield but they were fine with it. Now, after seeing it, I'm
glad I requested it because I really like the "clean" look of it.

I'm also very happy with my interior selections - the flooring, counter tops and trim. It provided another opportunity to release the designer in me. The color scheme is neutral and subtle- mostly beige, grey and black.

As for it's first trip, Hubby is planning to take the trailer on his upcoming hunting trip. It's just way too cold for my liking so I'll stay warm at home. Hopefully the snow holds off and I don't get a call saying he's stuck somewhere!

Re: Our new Escape

Handsome!

Also, I'm glad to know that Tammy gives new owners some referral cards. I was thinking I might have to make my own.

Re: Our new Escape

Hi: LBaranyai...Ten min. must be some kind of record for giving a tour!!!
BTW I'd like a set of those wheels too. I guess I'll have to wait till its time for new tires and get them all mounted together. Nice looking rig...that must be the attraction that people notice. Welcome to the Escape family. Alf

Re: Our new Escape

Is that a solar panel I see? You are going to love watching your batteries re-bound each day, rain or shine! Enjoy your 17B! We absolutely love ours, even without the fancy wheels!

Re: Our new Escape

Turned our great, thanks for sharing. I would opt for no front sticker too.

Did the frame have to be modified for motorcycle hitch for the back of our trailer? About how heavy motorcycle will be back there?
