Hi from Finger Lakes Region NY

Had the opportunity a few days ago to attend the Escape rally in Niagara Falls, Ont. on the Niagara River. Thanks CPAHarley2008 for the invite. Kate and I met some terrific folks who were more than willing to share their info, experiences and enthusiasm and of course a tour of their Escapes. We are pretty new to camping and have a 2014 Casita 17" towed with a Honda Pilot which is a bit tight for us and the dog. Getting our feet wet with east coast trips, just returned from Provincetown, Cape Cod. Offseason driving no hassle. Looking to expand our geographic range and duration, thus we are looking for a 21" Escape, no order in yet.
Put the Finger Lakes on your to go to list, In addition to lakes there are lots of wineries with great tours.
Looking forward to participating in the forum hopefully as an Escape owner in the not too distant future.
Jerry

Nice to hear about another escape coming to NY. We have a 5.0 classic and are just down the road in Hornell.

Hello Jerry,
As newcomers to the Escape world, who put our deposit down last month at the factory, we recommend that you make it happen soon. We're thrilled with our decision to purchase a 19, but wish delivery wasn't a year away. Oh well, if you want quality patience is a virtue. You can trust it will be a great decision. Have fun with the process.

Hi Payton,
Thanks, We will have to wait for the next order window to open which we are told is March or so 2016 but we're pretty good with the patience for quality thing.

Hey Jerry! I don't know if I should say "Welcome!" or not, as I'm a newbie too, but Welcome! anyways!

We live just south of Albany in the foothills, but love the Finger Lakes. We particularly like camping at the state park on Keuka Lake. Great place!

What was this Escape Rally in Niagara Falls? Will there be another next year? I'm sure I could get Gail to go, seeing she is the one that wants the 21. Having dates ahead of time would be great!

Thanks!

Frank

Hi: frank_a... Niagara Wine Escape 2015. We had 33 fiberglass trailers there. All current models of Escapes there too. Why...we even had a ParkLiner there with NY. plates on it.
Had a great weekend Sept. 18-20th. Always the second weekend after Labour Day. Alf
