New 21' - Yippee!!!

Just got back from picking up our new Escape 21', including a 4 day outing at Birch Bay State Park - our favorite Washington State park. Sorry, this story has no drama - just joy!

With E2 Fastway Hitch, the 21' towed smoother than our previous Scamp 16, even with some significant wind. Wireless rear facing camera with microphone worked way better than expected. Love the microphone in the camera - greatly improves communication between driver and brains (aka the bride giving directions) when backing up.

The high point was having the bride put up and down the awning. On the Scamp it took 2 men and a boy to get the awning stowed (often needing to send the boy away because of adult-only language necessary).

WOW! What a beauty! Great color choices and graphics!
and your outdoor kitchen is ready for supper!

I really like the looks of the awning, whether deployed or stowed. Very clean lines!

Great looking trailer, love the graphics (we have the same colour ��).
Hope you enjoy yours as much as we have enjoyed the trouble free camping an Escape offers.

Great color choices. Thanks for sharing.

Your back up camera has a microphone? What model is yours? ETI supplied? Wonder if ours (from almost a year ago) has it or if they've changed brands. That feature sure could be handy.

Very sharp 21. Particularly like the contrast between the formica and edge trim.

The wireless camera and monitor are ETI supplied. I believe it is the RVS-2CAM system, but the trailer's in storage so I can't verify .

The monitor has a volume control that we leave turned all the way down while driving, then turn up when backing. It could be that the volume on your monitor is turned down.

Birch Bay State Park is just below Blaine, WA. Or put another way, it's just east of Sumas, making it an extremely convenient place to stay after picking up a new Escape.
