Wish they were coming. It is a very far drive for them, however. We had many one-night stops and I felt the time was much too short even with the weeks we took. Too bad they can't just fly in --- oh, that would not be allowed! They hardly need the business and they are hoping to get more space and make big changes shortly.

Attending Mississippi River Rally

Paul,

I don't yet own an Escape trailer, but I have a 21 ft. unit on order, with delivery in May of 2016. I would like to visit the Mississippi River Rally on Saturday for the open viewing of the attendee's trailers. I am currently working on my build sheet and feel that seeing several trailers at one time would be very helpful for me. I understand that the rally will be held at:

Fishermans Corner Federal Campground
Route 84 North
Hampton, Illinois

I would appreciate it if you would let me know if my attendance on Saturday will be OK and also confirm that I have the correct location for the rally (I had some problems with the recreation.gov website).

Thanks,
Claude Pairsh (Cfoster)

Claude,
You are most welcome to attend and ask questions. We have set aside 1-3:00 for tours, the choice of that time was somewhat arbitrary, I think you will find plenty of owners to answer questions outside of the tour time.

Room for two more?

I just stumbled across your group and was pleasantly surprised to see this event. My wife and I have been researching fiberglass trailers and really think the Escape is what we want, but would love to see them in person. If you don't mind we'd also like to attend on Saturday.

Jimrules (and anyone else reading this thread), anyone interested in Escapes will be more than welcome to stop by and visit. Paul has been the one doing all the real organizing, (and deserves all the credit for getting it going) but I am sure I can speak for everyone there about this. And as Paul said above, there is a set up time for tours, but don't let that stop you from coming and seeing trailers if that time period doesn't work for you.

Bring some good local brews to share and you will really be popular!

Thanks Thoer, I wouldn't dream of showing up without good beer to share. Cool campers AND good beer! I think this is going to work out fine.

Not only would an Escape owner not mind, that's part of the normal happenings at a rally. I recall at the Bluebonnet Rally here in Texas back in April, we had at least a dozen couples tour our trailer who were just in the market and didn't have a trailer yet. A great way to see the different models.

Besides, truth be told, we love showing them off.

Schedule? I'm retired, what's a schedule? I think I might vaguely remember that term

From what Paul has said, there is no schedule and that is fine with us, too.
