Two Escapes

We're on our maiden voyage, traveling from Portland, Oregon to Napa, California when we ran across another Escape here in the campground in Napa. This guy knew he wanted an Escape, but apparently got on the wrong website.

Jim and Robin,

Did you go over the Siskiyou Mts. or go out to the coast to go to Napa? Just wondered how the 15 towed? How was your first trip mileage?

Tim: We drove I-5 down to Napa and will take 101 from Napa to Crescent City and then back to PDX via I-5. Going over the pass went better than expected, driving at around 50 mph up the rise most of the time. Mileage has been OK at about 15 mpg. Our first trip out has been trouble free, although I did call Dave at Escape Industries twice. We got our orientation in Dec and the old brain forgot a few things.

The Liberty tows very smoothly. The V6 is plenty of power. The WDH with the short wheel base also seems to work well--no sway or pulling in odd directions.

To quote a line from old time TV

"Missed It By That Much"

As the owner was trying to tell you about the merits of the other Escape you could have demanded " Cone of Silence"

In about ten years he won't be able to give his away and you'll still own a valuable asset.

If you Google the other trailer you find some bad stories about the Cikirarv.com brand with respect to water problems and the floors and walls rotting out in some models less than 2 years old. It appears that the manufacturer may have gone bankrupt! in 2011??

Glad I bought the fiberglass ESCAPE from Chilliwack
