Long Time Lurker Finally Speaks Up

My name is Murray Swan and I've been lurking on this forum for 6 years. Even attended the 2017 rally in Osoyoos ( didn't lurk there, that would have been weird).

Came close to ordering an Escape in 2012 and again in 2017 but life took us in a different direction. Today my wife Lorri and I signed off the build sheet for a 2019 5.0 TA due March 26. Very excited!

Oh, we ordered the Maple interior.

See you in Osoyoos!

Welcome Murray, you've been here way longer than me (joined in 2014). Glad to hear your no longer lurking, and congrats on your purchase.

From a fellow Kelowna Owner.

That will be another new Escape in Kelowna. There is now a 2018 model 19 and 21 and yours will round out the fleet next year.

Whoohoo! 2019 is going to be a busy year for Escape. We’re keeping company. Ours is getting picked up in April.

Congratulations! Probably a good thing you didn't ask us our opinions about options for your build. We have plenty of them!


Have a ton of fun in 2019!
