New members in Maryland

Hello! We are Melissa and John. Located near Annapolis, MD. We have been fortunate to purchase a used 5.0 found well cared for in Virginia. We are former Scampers who needed a larger rig. Who could imagine that? We will be towing with a new GMC Canyon w/Duramax, which has just arrived at the dealer. Can't wait to install a hitch and go on the road...

Congratulations! I would LOVE to hear how the new 2.8L handles the towing, and
its manners in general!

Thanks for all the welcoming comments.

Well, we are loving the truck so far. About 1000 miles on so far at 28 MPG. Still working the hitch mounting out. It isn't were I want to mount it, it's where the brackets will fit on the frame rails. Lots of measuring before cutting.

Congrats and welcome John. Your Canyon should handle the 5er very well.

We visited Maryland three years ago in the fall and found the area we were in which was western Maryland to have great Fall color and be very nice
country. Your post got me thinking about going back and camping in some state parks. I was happy to learn that non residents could purchase your Senior pass for $10 good for half price camping Sunday thru Thursday as well as other benefits. Good luck with your new to you Escape, I'm sure you'll like it a
lot.
Dave
