introducing ourselves

Hello to the Escape community,

My spouse and I decided to try a brand new adventure--exploring this beautiful continent with a travel trailer in tow. Our Escape 21 is to be ready August 31st; we look forward to taking off with our little dog Cooper and his feline friend Sid. We are total newbies at this, and have had the good fortune to meet fellow Escape owners here on the Olympic Peninsula who have been most generous with their time and expertise to help us get started in the right direction (thank you Carla Jean and Ned!). Iíve been lurking on the forum for several months, and I am so impressed with how generous people are with sharing their knowledge and experiences. Itís already been tremendously helpful. But we still have many questions, especially as we close to finalizing our options list, which I will start to post soon. Looking forward to being part of this community.
Linda, Ken, Cooper and Sid

Welcome aboard.

You are going to enjoy your new trailer, and the travels you go on. Can't beat being introduced to an Escape better than with Carla Jean and Ned.

Since you are relatively close, why not visit the Escape Rally in Osoyoos, BC- there will be over a hundred Escape lined up for viewing, seeing them can give you lots of ideas. 5/25-5/28
for more info 2017 Escape Trailer Customer Appreciation Rally

Welcome! We are less than an hour from you in Bremerton. We go to Pt. Townsend 3 or 4 times a year. Feel free to PM if you want to see our 2013 '19 for ideas. We are relatively new to the community ourselves having bought Esacpe from a forum member in October. But we are not new to trailer camping. Just spent two weeks camping on Orcas Island. Love our Esacape!

Hi, Linda and Ken, Welcome to the Escape family! My husband and I live in PT also and have a 2 year old Escape 19. If you have any questions or would like to see our 19, we would be happy to help.
Cheers, Sandi and Dave

Welcome. The Escape is the best trailer in the history of trailers and possibly the best RV in the entire universe. So great!

Welcome!

You'll love it... we love ours.

Now the first big question - what will you tow with?



p.s. get ready for a debate of the merits of one tug vs another.
