New member in the PNW, Wenatchee WA. Hello!

We tow our Escape 21 with a 2005 Tundra, probably similar in power and towing capacity to your 2006 model. Without loading our truck with our usual ton of boat and fishing gear the trailer seems to hardly slow us down, though the engine works hard on steep grades. Your 17 must be a dream to tow. Enjoy your new Escape to the max!

OK, I got the thumbnail thing down. Since I'm a photo nut, you might be sorry you helped me! Here's one more from our trip to Flagler:

Thanks Bobbito! Yeah it does fantastic until the Cascade passes, but we still amble along about 55 mph up the steeper grades. Not to bad, but we do pack pretty light. If you can call three people, 3 bikes, firewood, etc light! The biggest change for me was coming from a tent trailer that had no wind drag. What amazed me the most was the suspension on the trailer, and how smoothly it pulls. Super impressed.
Have a great Canada Day long weekend!

Ron

Welcome Ron,

FWIW, been using PIXresizer PIXresizer - Download for years, running on DSL file size matters. Kind of basic, but then it's free.

Congratulations on your new trailer! I snagged my 5.0 the same way in March.
I hope you enjoy many years of happy travels and happy camping! Keep the pictures coming, they are great!

Hey Ron, Welcome to our little fg world. That first picture is calendar worthy, send it to Escape for next years. Getting the calendar after making a purchase is one of the reasons I keep buying new Escapes, I love the calendars.....

Great story Ron, wow congrats. I have relatives in your town, on Jump Off road. ESP truck accessories sells a custom dash insert that fits the tundra factory dash panel for a p3 brake controller if interested. I put one in my Tundra. It just pulls out with your hands. Credit goes a forum member here for sharing that tip. Thanks for sharing your photos I use the free irfanview for photo resize here.
