let the FUN begin!!!!!

We just purchased a very nice, like new 19. We are very excited to be part of the Escape gang! It's our first real RV. Can not believe the quality of the build after spending the past 6 months 'shopping', mostly stickies from the big manufacturers. So much junk and bad stories not making me feel good about so many of the other brands.
We live down in Long Beach, WA very near where Lewis and Clark turned around. We're SUP and sea kayak instructors looking to do a US tour next summer in our new "Tortuga"! She's sweeet and we're looking forwards to learning alot from you'all!

Welcome,

Wave as you pass Delaware on your US Tour :} I do not think your original owner posted pics perhaps you will.

Good for you!

We are new to RVing and have been thrilled to be learning to use our 19". We did several short trips, went to the Escape Rally in Osoyoos, BC and now are on our first long trip. Sequim, WA to San Diego via Utah and return home via Reno, NV. We are loving it and now you will find how right your decision was. Good trailering and safe travels to you. Welcome.

I've had my 19 for about 3 months now and love it. My decision to buy an Escape was the right one. Many fun times ahead for all.

Alright Leon and Lindy and Murphy dropped off the Lark today! Taught me all about how everything works. Thank you for bringing it to my home- they are as expected very nice people and one nice dog. I had to run back to work wanted to play with it!! So now I'm an official Escape owner let the fun begin!

Fox hunt,

It was a pleasure meeting you. I hope you get as much fun out of the Lark as we did. We get to see the Skylark tomorrow!
