Q

We are filling up at home (Tucson) for a sure thing on good water even if we use bottled for drinking and coffee.

I always come to Quartzsite with a full onboard water tank and a 5gallon reserve in the truck bed, never needed any addl for the week. There are some full service rv parks, etc. where you can pull through and get water, propane, dump but not sure coming in from the West.

Donna, those coordinates are perfect. Ended up with Jon V. "out my back window"

Our cell phone works well at Dome Rock.

Don't haul water here. There's a place in town called the Pit Stop. 2 bucks to fill your trailer and other containers with filtered water or buy some R.O. water for 2 bucks a gallon for coffee etc.

Perfect temperatures, don't need the furnace at night and warm but not too hot during the day.

Almost finished my milkshake and using McDonalds wi-fi.

Looking forward to seeing others arrive.

Planning to arrive Thursday forenoon.

Ron - I'll have the solar controller if you want it. (Blue graphics - AZ license ESC19 , silver 2005 Tundra.)

I will also have a double step with the rod cut out - ready to install on a Casita or Escape. It mounts outside (instead of inside) the step hangars - just drill new bolt holes.

You may be able to take on water at one of the gas stations just across the CA/AZ border, although I haven't tried. That is about it until you hit Quartzsite (about 4-5 miles past the Dome Rock rally area). There is the RV Pit Stop on AZ 95 a little north of town that has water, dumpsters & a dump station. No idea on the $ because since November I've been staying at the Long Term Visitors Area where I use the water fill, dump station & dumpsters for $180.00 for the entire winter.

If you are coming from the west on I 10, skip the Dome Rock Exit & take the first Quartzsite exit, turn left over I 10, right at the flashing red light then take a left at the first real stoplight. That will be AZ 95 - the RV Pit Stop will be on your right. They are only open 8:00AM to 5:00PM. If you are arriving much later, you might want to remain hooked up & make a run in the morning...

Hi again. :-)

To all the Escape owners who will be at Quartzite this weekend…

I just realized…. I have read many threads here on this awesome forum, and poured over the options list…. made spreadsheets…

and have owned a Casita 17' for four years (and read just about every thread over on the two Casita forums) so am fairly familiar with how a fiberglass travel trailer works….

But my wife, daughter and I have seen an Escape only once, a 21’ for about an hour in total. We plan on ordering a 2017 21’ Escape travel trailer April 1st.

We are about 20-ish years away from retiring… but with our young daughter we love to camp, when we can.

This weekend at Quartzsite there will be at least three 21’ Escapes (yay!) and I may have a chance to see some variations in what people did on their build sheet…..

The things I would most like to *SEE* this weekend, if anyone has any of these things on their Escape

… and would be willing to show us….

… in no particular order, would be:

The stock sink (FWIIW we only want 2 burners, and would turn it sideways to maximize counter space)

The stock Formica (to get a sense of the color)

The stock floor (to get a sense of the color)

The stock fabric (to get a sense of the color)

LED Awning Light (went up to $170 - ouch)

Tadi Brothers Model # 90117 backup cam.

Under trailer insulation (just to see it… i have read the threads)

“extended cabinet above drawer stack” (although I don’t even know what that is…)

The $475 Pro Series 600LB Trunnion WDH& sway control
OR
the $625 Trunnion- 92-00-0600 WDH& sway control

(it is my understanding that they dont install Andersen anymore. The Andersen had the big advantage of not needing to remove the sway bar before backing up…)

Does anyone happen to know if the two Trunnion models I mention above, [that ETI DOES currently install, that have sway control] have a sway that can stay *on* when backing up ?

Let me know - - - either post on this thread, or a personal message - - - - thanks! :-)

Los Angeles. (hopefully arriving 9-ish pm Friday, leaving probably around 11 am Sunday)

You can see several of those items on our 19 and there will be at least two 21's parked nearby from Mon. on. Look for a 19 with a solar panel way up in the air near the coordinates Donna mentioned previously.

Good wi-fi at the library.

My TV stick for my netbook died. Knew I should have gotten a 12 volt TV for this trip.

Thanks Ron



And so your solar panel is somehow much higher than your 19' ?

How is that possible?
