Hello from Parker and Carol in Ohio

Hi all,

We're planning to pick up our new 19' at the factory in May. We're very excited about this adventure! We started camping with a motorcycle/tent, then car/tent, teardrop, 13' Scamp, 16' Casita, and now the Escape. We seem to add about three feet per year, but hopefully this trend will end with the Escape!

We're still pondering a couple of choices of options, which I'll post elsewhere in the forum.

Special thanks to Ian and Jenny for leading us astray! Hope to see you out there soon.

Parker

Good going, Parker! Yes, this could be your final trailer.

Congrats on your soon to own 19, Parker. You will have lots of great fun using it.

I met Jenny and Ian when we picked up our trailer, they got theirs the day before us and we both went to a rally in Fort Nelson. Good to hear they had a good influence on you. Hope to get to that side of the continent sometime in the future for a visit.

Thanks, Cathy and Jim! I've enjoyed reading several of the posts here already, which is extremely helpful, plus Ian and Jenny continue to coach me. You might want to consider stopping by the Eggscursion, held in April every year at the edge of the Smoky Mountains. Lots of fiberglass campers and lots of nice folks.

I would love to travel out there some day, and take in some rallies too. Probably not for a few years yet though, as I would likely want to retire first so I could take my time.

Hello Parker,
As a moderator on both Fiberglass RV and here, let me welcome you to both forums if not already there. Once you get settled in, maybe we can have an Escape rally on this side of the Mississippi. There is a predominant Escape meet listed over on FGRV in September in Niagara Falls, Canada at a real nice nice cg on the lake, try to join us after you get your new Escape.

Hi Jim, and thanks for the welcome. I've been on FGRV for a long time, but haven't posted much in the last couple of years. We'll certainly keep the Niagara event in mind. It sounds a lot of fun, and we're already talking about a Maine trip this fall. Sounds like an excellent stopover on the way.

Parker
