Just placed an order for a 17'

:Hi all

I bought my first egg, a 13' Casita in Dec. '08. In early '10 I learned that my dentist, Dr. Dan had an Escape 5.0 and joined this forum just to see what was going on. I haven't been on here much though, but I guess that'll be changing now since I just got off the phone with Tammy after placing an order for a fully loaded 17B. And BTW, as many of you know, it was a real pleasure working it all out with Tammy.
Since those early days I moved from the 13' Casita to a 16' Casita, then a Parkliner, and now a 17' Bigfoot.
I was at the Niagara Escape Rally earlier this month and finally got to see a 17B and decided that will be my next and almost surely my last trailer. The size, layout, and features offer everything I want in a trailer, after almost 8 years of fiberglass experience.
So now I get to suffer through the one year wait for my final Escape.

Hi: Walt P... Con Graduations!!! Hope your arm feels better soon. Yes Tammy is great to deal with as are all the ETI folks.
Glad you could see all at Niagara Wine Escape. Alf

Just curious. What about the 17B made you decide to replace your 17' Bigfoot?
Have to warn you. Your last trailer will likely be an Escape 19' or 21'.

I have to follow you from forum to forum, Walt, to see what you're up to. Yes, I'll be at the mini rally so I can say goodbye to your Bigfoot.
