More Newbies

Going to look at a 19 tomorrow. If we love it as much as we think we will plan on making our deposit. After researching for about 6 months this seems like the one we will be happy with.

We are new to camping (I have been trying to talk him into it for 20 years, finally wore him down) so will be frequent visitors here for advice.

Way to go Caren. Wearing down the stubborn husband is what wives are for!

We pick up our 19 in about 6 weeks -- and I'll bore anyone to tears bragging about it

Larry and Caren,
My wife and I never camped a day in our life and certainly never did anything with a trailer. We bought the 19 a year and a half ago and have never been sorry. We took a few short trips to test it out and see if we knew how to work things and then took a two week trip to San Diego. The 19 is everything he had hoped for and more. We love it. While we are still learning, it is the best decision we have made as I work towards my retirement.

Good luck and stay true to what you want. The 19 is perfect for two people and we hope to see you at one of the future Escape Rally's.

Ron & Sharon

Seriously, dood! Turn in your man card. Husbands are never supposed to openly admit this.

'tis true, but I saw it more as wishful (hopeful) thinking, than whining.

We ordered a 19, have to wait until October unfortunately. Having fun going over the options, it's to far out to stress about yet.

I suggest you work sooner rather than later on the options list. We got a cancellation slot so we accelerated our order from September to May, so we had to set up the build list sooner than we expected, but are glad to get a trailer at the beginning of summer rather than the end.
