Ron&Jeans 19 ft Escape "Leap of Faith"

Here are a couple of photos of our camper that we picked up in Toronto on July 3rd.Ordered it back in February and paid for our trailer sight unseen.All that I knew of this camper I got from YOU and the Escape website.I can honestly say that this trailer exceeded our expectations.The quality,fit and finish are impressive.It was a pleasure dealing with Tammy and Reace and more honest people would be hard to find.
The double insulation and air conditioning have come in handy for our last 2 trips in 85 degree heat.It will serve us well this winter as we vacation in Florida.

Re: Ron&Jeans 19 ft Escape "Leap of Faith"

I would like to hear about the "we picked up in Toronto " portion of your purchase. How was this arranged?

Re: Ron&Jeans 19 ft Escape "Leap of Faith"

As for the shipping.Tammy was able to arrange for our unit to be shipped with a batch of Trilliums being shipped East.
We probably could tow it with my brothers Harley but use a GMC Safari van instead.We purchased the Equalizer hitch from Escape and could not be happier with how it tows.I am sure I could get by without it but will say that it tows more smoothly than the 13 foot Uhaul that the Escape replaced.
The reason to pick the trailer up in Canada was to avoid the Brokers fee.The only taxes I paid on the trailer were when I registered with my BMV in Ohio.Just make sure the invoice shows what you paid in American and Canadian or they will try and tax you at the current exchange rate which may not be as low as when you paid for it.I paid for mine months in advance to take advantage of the favorable rates early in the year.
Tammy will supply you with all that you need and hold your hand every step of the way.

Re: Ron&Jeans 19 ft Escape "Leap of Faith"

Do you mean this group of trailers?Mine is the last one on the trailer and arrived without a scratch.I never heard of the Bolerama so I doubt we will attend.I guess if I had to give it a name I would call it Leap of Faith.

Hi: Ronald... WOW!!! Thats some trail of trailers...Yepper all of the 13'ers were at Bolerama and so was Tom Young. Bolerama is a fiberglass rally held each July at Emily Provincial Park Omemee Ontario Canada. This year there were 136 fiberglass "EGGS" in the park and several from Ohio. You'll have to come up next year to join us. Its a GREAT TIME!!! Alf
