Taking the plunge

My wife and I just placed an order for a 19B with November delivery date. I will be retiring in a little over a year and we are totally new to trailers/camping/RVing. Looking forward to a new adventure. We are Ron & Sharon

Welcome, Ron & Sharon, to our little world. I hope one day to make it to Sequim, the Florida of the wet northwest!!

Hi Ron & Sharon,
Good choice & welcome to the Escape gang.
There's a gathering just south of Portland at Champoeg SP next April. Perhaps you'd like to join us there.
Congatulations.

Congrats on your new trailer. Lots of fun ahead.

Just curious, where is Sequim?

Feeling Real

Well it's starting to feel real now, we got our first pictures of our trailer last Friday. We've never had an RV before and are looking forward to learning from all the seasoned vets that have been so helpful on this site. Our pick up date is November 25th and we can't wait.

Wow, you can really see where they glass in the wood. Are they also reinforcing any walls for you, so you can hang things?
