Bluebonnet Rally

I am not getting my 21 until the end of July, but I was thinking of driving to the rally this Friday. I have not seen the "new' 21 yet, just the first generation (Thanks Mary). And my oldest son (who will use it whenever he wants and has not seen any Escape yet except for pictures) will go with me. Would it be OK just to show up on Friday to take a look and meet some people?

Feel free to just show up and visit. Just walk around-folks are very willing to show and tell!

Agreed. Plenty of folks show up just to look at trailers and not camp. The "egg parade" happens to be on Friday this year. If you see a blue balloon hanging outside, that means the owner is willing to give you a tour.

Come by site 17 or 18 . There are three 2017 21' Escapes within that area plus another 2017 21' in site 85. There are also some older Escapes at the rally. We will be happy to show you ours. Call me at 972-965-1629 if you prefer.

Regards,

Fred M.

Yes, Barton. It's absolutely okay to come to the Blueb and have a look at the trailers there. We did it in 2015, and are heading out tomorrow morning (to camp in ours this time!) As Robert said, Friday's the day! I think there will be 9 Escapes. I don't remember how many are 2017s, and how many are 21 footers, but I'm looking forward to meeting those who can be there.

Looking forward to meeting y'all. From what I hear, this rally started a little "early" and was pretty much filled up yesterday!

Welcome aboard!

I won't be attending, but I bet my bottom dollar that there would be lots of wonderful Escape owners willing to show you there trailers. This is a pretty standard thing at any rally, and one of the best ways to get to look at and compare trailers.

Wayne, Jim is right. There will be plenty of owners (myself included) who will be happy to show you their rig, regardless of which day it is.

Better look at the production schedule. If this is like last year, there was a flurry of Casita owners trying to buy an Escape after the Bluebonnet last year
