I'd like to see someone with a 13' come forward and discuss how you have adapted to less space. Like, do you have two cups, two glasses, two plates, two knives, forks and spoons? Do you buy clothes at WalMart and leave them at goodwill when they get dirty? I'm sure there are some practical tips you could share.

Jeff:

Glenn Baglo has such a wonderful sense of humour! We have an Escape 13 and not found that it cramps our style very much. We "moved up" from a tent, and it has been a great improvement! Since adopting Ladybug in February we have been on five short trips, and we love our Escape trailer! The keys to happiness in a small trailer for us:
1. we did not need to buy a new vehicle -- our Subaru Forester tows the trailer just fine, even on the long haul to the Merritt rally!
2. we added some luxuries -- we have a hot water heater, extra insulation, double pane tinted glass, chose our own cushion fabric and counter tops, have a stainless sink
3. we can live with a Porta Potti -- don't need a bathroom -- this saves space and money
4. my wife and I each sleep on our own end of the trailer -- this gives reasonable space to each of us
5. our English Cocker Spaniel Oliver is content to sleep under the bed at the back of the trailer -- he finds it cosy
6. the 13 foot trailer fits nicely onto the pad we built in our back yard
7. no compromises were needed for the number of cups, knives and spoons or clothes because there is ample storage capacity in an Escape

We are a bit sad that Escape will no longer be making the 13. Maybe this is not a "forever" decision.
