Hello To all. We have just returned from a trip to Africa and while on the ship of all things had an espresso with a guest. We got to talking about camping, which led to RVs and then 5th Wheels. Then he said he had done a lot of research and the best 5th wheel and the right size was his escape which was not the dual axle. He had such conviction I felt I should find out more. I went back to the cabin and started reading about Escape and in particular the 5.0TA. Then I decided to join the forum. I look forward to meeting members who are in and around the bay area to actually visit and meet with them and their escape.

Welcome! There are a number of Escape owners in your region including one who just picked up, I believe. When you have a good idea of which model you would be most interested in --- 5.0 ? --- there should be someone to show one. If not, you can call Escape Trailer and they will give you names and numbers.

I recall someone had been in Zimbabwe maybe but do not know the name. Expect it was a fantastic trip.

Welcome aboard.

You mention this fellow had great conviction regarding his Escape 5.0. A good term, and what many others beers have towards there own Escapes, of all sizes.

I will continue to be an avid reader, and maybe when our build date is closer and my experience level increases, I will even make a few posts. Until then, thanks to everyone for their generosity of sharing and thoughtful explanations.

Steve and Debbie: I grew up in Fremont, graduated from Mission '70! We picked up our Escape 21 last March and loving it. Started with a Casita 17... It's fairly loaded.. Stay on top of the exchange rate and forecasts so you pull the trigger at the right time and u can save thousands!!! We did! Enjoy! Gary Coverdale

Hi Gary, I bet we knew a lot of the same people. I was Class of '70, Irvington. We've never moved away!
Yeah, We paid for almost all of our 21 several months ago, when the exchange rate was 74%. I know it's even lower now. We'll have a small balance when we pick up in April (we were moved up 4 months). Having a great time now planning our trip. We're going to take Hwy 20, come over the Port Townsend Ferry, then spend 6 days on the Olympic Peninsula. We'll arrive in Oregon just in time for the Spring NOG in Waterloo. Then we'll spend another 7-10 days coming down the Oregon and Ca. coasts before arriving home in early May. With this wet winter we're having, I'm packing a good poncho!

Good to hear from you from the mountains of Placerville!

Welcome Easytravelman.
You won't have to go to the bay area to see Escapes! Are we going to add another member to the California Crew?

Hello, I think I wrote that wrong. I live in the bay area and was wanting to meet some of my local Californians who have an Escape and to just say Hi.

Because you put your location as Placerville, I thought you were here in our neck of the woods.

Let me clarify. I live in the Bay Area but I also have a ranch in Placerville on the consumnes river, which were at 3 or 4 months a year. So, it would be great to visit some Escape owners who are near Placerville as well as the Bay area.
