Hello everyone and greetings from northeast Georgia!

Ike and I have been around the Escape trailers for several years now, camping with friends who introduced us to them. Having sold our beloved Casita LD to friends, we are now looking forward to picking our 19' up in April. With a week left on build sheet choices, things are narrowing down rapidly! I'll post a question of two elsewhere, but just want to thank everyone (ETI, friends Ian, Jenny, Parker, Carol, Jen, Tom and Cheryl, and the many Forum members) for all the great advice and insight on these remarkable trailers.

We've spent 100's of hours reading post's and bugging folks to get to where we are now and are so excited! What a great community of people--along with ETI, an outstanding company~
Looking forward to the adventures ahead!
Gae and Ike

Hi, Gae and Ike,

Welcome to the Escape community. It is always exciting to get a trailer. You can only figure out so much before you camp but fortunately you can add most things later.

First hi Gae & Ike,
This is just a thought you should post your build sheet on the forum. This can be tremendously helpful sometimes we just overlook the obvious and miss something that should be put on the build sheet. Anyways congratulation on getting a Escape trailer .

Thanks Mark and Karen--will do it in the next couple of days. I've gotten so much guidance from those already on the Forum, valuable info!

By the way Gae and Ike, I've been to your neck of the woods a couple times, fished Mocassin Creek and stopped in Clayton. Beautiful country!

Hello All,


Only 234 more days until I can pick up my new 17A. Yikes .... did I count those days right? Anyway wired up some $ to the kind folks at ETI so "here we go". My completion date is 10/22/15. I'm going to go with the jet assist package to blast me down to S. Cal and warmer temperatures.


I'm so jealous of you short timers ..... but then we all had to wait and take our turn .... at least I'm now in line.


See you out there,
Tom

Nice going, Tom! It will probably go faster than you think with that long list of options to get straight.

Can't imagine what it would be like to order a new one and wait.... Read great reviews on the Escapes and bought ours used after searching and finding the right one. New or used, great product and worth the wait.

Hi Buddy.... I looked and looked for a used trailer but seem like I was always a day late and a dollar short. So I've bit the bullet. I don't think I'll mind the wait so much as this summer is crammed with work and too many things to do.... the time will fly by. Getting my trailer in the fall will work out just fine. Big build decisions too.


Hope you are able to get in lots of camp time. I'm pretty curious about Alberta .... looks like a wonderful part of the world.

We ordered in June. The trailer was completed Feb 2nd. We pick up in 12 days. It's a tough wait but the time does go pretty fast when you're busy with other things. Can't believe we're almost there.
