Getting started on the road to a 19

My wife and I just took the plunge, putting the deposit down for a 19.
Looking forward to lots of questions and answers leading up to our build sheet!

It does seem a little early, doesn't it?
We are stoked! Most of our plans revolve around weekend trips to quiet locations within a few hours of home, pontoon boat and flyrod, but there is a bucket list trip or two.... Grand Canyon, Nova Scotia...
After viewing the typical product on the sales lots around here, the Escape we viewed just north of us sold us. The build quality is smarter and better than anything priced anywhere close.
The options are boggling!

I wouldn't mind being held hostage on the Island by BC Ferry. Can't convince wife and kid.

Welcome and congrats on your purchase! We took our Escape to Tofino this past summer and enjoyed just one of the many awesome camping experiences on Vancouver Island. Of course you already know that.

Did I read "fly rod"? If you tie your own you might add a couple of captain's lights to your dinette so they light your vice evenly over your shoulder, from either side. No more headlamp for me!

Good times ahead!

If you haven't already it's time to start combing the old threads. Here are a couple of threads about options that I liked . Also both "It's Friday" threads have good information and pictures. This forum is a great place to get ideas but remember things change so call ETI and ask questions.

Things that aren't on the option list

If you could do it again, what would be different?

Good luck getting your build sheet right for you!

Congratulations. Lots of nice places to camp close to home, I've found quite a few, and am still exploring. Provincial parks are really great for dry camping. Pretty soon we will have enough owners on the island for our own rally.

I am a particular fan of the forestry opportunities north of Campbell river. More loons and fewer loonies!

Welcome to the Escape family. We purchased a 19' and are eagerly awaiting delivery. Our due date is not until the end of June or if we are lucky maybe a little earlier if they move up the production dates again.
