Joining the Escape family

Iím joining the Escape family! I am buying David Kirkís 15A. I think I could pull it with my Forester if Iím careful about loading, but not to worry, Iíve decided to move up to a 2012 Rav4 V6 or if I canít find one I like, maybe a Toyota Tacoma. (And I'm open to suggestions but I'm trying to avoid a big seven-passenger SUV.) Iíll pick up the trailer in Chilliwack when David and Kim pick up their new one next month, so I have plenty of time to make decisions (even if I have to borrow or rent a truck to go get it.

I've been around Fiberglass RV for about nine years so know many of you already. I live on beautiful Whidbey Island in Washington State with my three corgis and have had a Trailswest Campster since 2007.

I think you'll love your 15A as I do mine.

I camp often at Keystone and wander around the island a lot to hike all the trails on Whidbey. Maybe I'll see your Escape peeking out of a driveway sometime.

Welcome to the forum!

Wow, a 15A! Proof that though it's rare, they do come up every once in a while. Great trailer, and still the most efficient use of space in any Escape. Congrats on your purchase.

It has what I wanted- newer, more floor space, an extra bed or dedicated dinette, not too much bigger. I found myself not wanting to camp in the shoulder seasons because getting cooped up in the Campster when it is raining isn't that much fun. (Which happened last August, of all times!)
