We have been eying an Escape trailer for about a year now. We are a family of 4 and we have somewhat decided a 17B is the best fit for us. We figure, when kids are young they won't mind sleeping on the gaucho. Then when kids get older they will be sleeping out in a tent. Perfect! Right now we are using a popup trailer. I think my joints will thank me if we do get an Escape.
Besides the $$$ that we are working on, we also have decided to store the unit in our tiny garage in a house that have (almost) no yard and a neighborhood that prohibit trailer on the street or driveway.
So, we measured and measured the garage door is only 7'10" tall, 3 inches shy according to spec! This is probably half of the reason we haven't pull the trigger on the purchase. I dread of seeing the trailer stuck outside of the garage when it arrive! Please tell me I worry too much....
Another thing is that we haven't really seen an Escape in person... We've been inside only 1 other egg camper but didn't like the layout of that. We would love to see one in person and now I learned about the fiberglass RV meet up at the Oregon coast which may be our chance!
