Just Ordered

My wife Nancy and I (Jan - Dutch version of John) have just placed our order on a E-21. We live in Ventura California and are life long campers. Our honeymoon was hiking around Greece for weeks with only day packs and sleeping bags. We recently had a Aliner trailer for 5 years. Last year, we camped our way to Alaska and discovered Escape Trailers while in B.C. They looked like Trailers for "campers!"

That, and all the friendly Canadians swung us over to the dark side. Buying Canadian... (Is swung a word?).

Anyway, we took advantage of the new 190watt solar panels and ordered two for our long boondocks. We hope to share a glass of wine with you all on the road somewhere.

Congrats on the new E21, but the website shows 170 watt solar, is there an upgrade?

You are going to love it! We do , just getting ready for our fifth trip this year. We are still learning and laughing at our mistakes. We have met great people and seen some beautiful places . If I didn't have grandchildren we would barely come home.

I don't see it on ETI's web site, but about four months ago GoPower replaced their 170 watt panel with a 190 watt. The footprint is exactly the same, so no changes in mounting. When they come out with a 210 or larger with the same footprint we'll probably exchange our 170 for the new, larger model.

Enjoy,

Perry

I'll have to check mine, it was completed last week of April-2019 and the website still shows 170 watt so I assumed mine was that since my build started July 2018 with the 170 watt panel. I may have to call Escape's Dave on this one.
