We are from Georgia and have 5.0ta ordered for January. Yeah! It will be a massive road trip, but we're up for a little adventure. Can't wait!

To give you an idea of how much milder the Vancouver area is from other parts of Canada, most years I am cutting my lawn by early March. The year of the Winter Olympics my long grew so early that I had to cut it the first week of February (exceptionally warm period). They had to make snow for the Winter Olympics, because it was so warm here! Cherry blossoms were blooming during the Olympics, if I'm not mistaken.

Unless you encounter a cold snap or snow storm (usually only one or two the whole winter season) you can expect temperatures between 35 -55 deg F., though in January it will tend to be between 32 - 50 deg F. The risky thing about picking up your trailer in January is that any precipitation in the mountain passes in Oregon and Washington could lead to treacherous road conditions. If you aren't in a hurry you can wait for road crews to clear and salt the mountain highways.

Yup, and that year there wasn't even any snow at the top of the local mountains and they had to truck it in from 150 miles away.

We don't salt roads in Oregon .

But I agree, there's a couple of passes in Oregon that can be bad Nov/Mar (usually). TripCam is your friend and especially keep an eye on the Siskiyous

We found the one's in Eastern OR in November.
Fortunately, we hit them in the middle of precip weeks, but they were still a bit hairy.

Craig & Wendy:
I see you are former Casita owners. What made you purchase the Escape this time? I'm vacillating between the Casita and Escape, and on paper the Escape does seem to have more elbow room, even for just one person like me. (BTW, I'm in Newhall, not too far from you.)

Yup ... you guessed it ... From warm L.A. Hopefully global warming can do its magic over the next few months.

Craig and Wendy,

I am so happy you got your order in today. Betty and I enjoyed showing our trailer to you two. It was great the factory was able to connect us up. Anytime you need to look at our trailer again don't hesitate to ask, and you know you are always welcome to call, text or email.

Cliff and Betty
