Alf:

Did you have a look at sites such as http://www.vinguard.org/vin.htm ?

By the way, I think you did a fine job on the show on Wednesday night. I was not able to tune in then, but viewed the final version. Based on your posting on the forum I had expected a lot more jokes. In the show you gave a straight forward account of your experience in getting your Escape and in helping others find theirs. Way to go! I don't know why you were so shy in appearing "on camera" because you did it very well.

Show? How can I see or here it? Alf was instrumental in my decision to get a 5.0! 5 trips later with our "Day Break" and we are still tickled to death with our little rolling condo!

Hi:itoddday... Somewhere in the archives there are a bunch of interviews with Escape owners.
JeffZ who started this forum really enjoyed tinkering with video tech., and when I got a new computer with a web cam. I joined the stream. We even had technical difficulties just like real TV.
Glad to hear you're enjoying your 5.0. Right now ours is buried under at least a foot of snow pic's. to follow!!! Alf

Hi: Donna D... Thanks for the link. I knew they were here some place. I didn't have time to dig them up as I had to start with the 16"s of snow, in the drive way. Alf

Hi: Vicki A... Thanks!!! We didn't have this much snow all of last winter and this year I kept the 5.0 close to home so we can tug it south after I retire. 20 days and X'ing. Alf

If you turn the trailer over you'll have a toboggan.
