Livin the Dream

New member from Wisconsin. My wife Ellen and I ordered a 19 a few days ago with completion on March 22. Your forum has been a great help though I've only lurked a few weeks. My haul vehicle will be the 3.6 liter Chevy Colorado Z71. The tow package is a 7000# setup but not sure whether additional hitch considerations will be in order. Looking forward to our eventual trip to BC.

Great to have another Wisconsinite here. I hope you can come to the Mississippi Rally in September. The wonderful couple who is buying our 17 is from Wisconsin too, so we just keep adding us up!

Welcome to the forum. According to my records there are now eight Escapes in Wisconsin with three more on order. I am including yours Eric so you get to be counted twice. Gerda that is quite an increase from May of 2010 when they unloaded numbers one and two off the trailer in Sault Ste Marie, ONT.

If you look at the map there is a whole nest of them in the far South Central portion of the state. Not sure this forum has them all on its map.

Congratulations Bruce. You'll be able to tow the 19 with your Colorado without using any WDH, but many have added it because it makes towing that much more stable.

Welcome, and congrats on your order.

I agree that you should be just fine safely towing without a WDH. This is something you can add later if you ever feel the need.

It was Gerda and Eric who got us going on our first Escape which was the first in Iowa. Now there have been at least half a dozen. They are definitely multiplying!

Always good to have more Escapes in this part of the world. Hope you will come join us at the Rally in Sept!

Bruce, I do have to warn you, there is this one guy from Iowa who will come up with contests to try to take all your beer away. He'll probably show up on this thread sooner or later.... Don't be fooled by his suave smooth talkin' Iowa prose
