New eggbie from Placerville

Hi all...great forum! We get our 21' Escape in March. Never seen one! But researched the heck out of it. We are ex Casita 17' owners who loved the Casita but felt it was just too small. We are sooo excited about getting our new Escape! In between the two we had a stick built 25' but watched it slowly age even though it was fairly new... We live in Placerville and frequent Lake Tahoe just about every weekend so we do like to get away and look forward to camping in style again! I think I have the Escape spec'ed out right from our experience with the Casita! The Escape gang have been great. And we lucked out with the exchange rate so everything is going full steam! I've learned a lot from the forum! Thank you all...
Gary and Janice

Btw: Orange logo and stripping for support of the SF Giants!

Hi, Gary and Janice,
You chose very well for not having seen one. I have no doubt you will love your 21' and Lake Tahoe will certainly be a prefect place to take it. Hope you post photos.

Welcome Gary. You certainly 'lurked' here for a long time without saying hello! Congrats on your 21.

Hi Gary & Janice,

We also bought our 21 sight unseen. pretty scary. We picked it up last March and it was love at first sight. We still have our 17ft casita, she lives at an astronomy dark site now. We are very happy with the bed, the extra storage, everything! You will be happy! Enjoy!

Hi Gary and Janice - My wife Jeanie and I live just up the hill from you in Pollock Pines. We got our 19 in '09 and love it more that ever, though it's in hibernation right now. With Karen and Peter in North Lake, we may be able to form our own mini-club!

Exactly Bruce! And There's another 19' in Truckee, which is the one we looked at before we ordered. I remember being given a name in Pollock Pines with a 19' to look at, so that must have been you!....Karen

Welcome Covey! Nice to have another Escape in the neighborhood! (Well almost.) The hardest part is deciding all the options. You will be pleased with the quality and service.
