yet another escape fan

Greetings

Yeah yeah.....ya'll heard it all already.

Former Class C'er who hated dragging the house around. Both retired and moved from CA across the USofA with our four legged family.

Thought living in the boonies (Adirondacks) was going to satisfy us.

Started looking at eggs....didn't like the configurations of other "makes" with the stove so close to the bed. Wood interior tickled us also....so at this point the 17B is calling our name.

Haven't seen one in person yet ..to finalize the deal.

Welcome aboard. Your scenario is fairly familiar.

I would contact Escape to find out what Escapes are close to you. You could check on the Owner's Map link at the top of the page too.

HI! Absolutely, positively check out whatever "all molded" brand of towable that tickles your fancy... in person. Brochures and websites are great, but NOTHING beats sitting and viewing a trailer from the INSIDE. There's no perfect trailer or brand. IT'S all about YOUR needs.

(I know my forever trailer probably isn't what you need/want)

Best of luck on the hunt!

Hi: reetired... Closest 17B to you is probably in Oswego N.Y. We will be traveling thru that area on Mon. and stoping in to see Jon. You'd be welcome also to come over to the Niagara Wine Escape at The Riverside Park Motel and Campground Niagara falls Ontario Can. Sept. 13-15th there will be several Escape trailers of different sizes there. Make reservations by phone 905-382-2204. Tell them your with the Escape trailers or the Staceys. Alf

According to Google Maps it is about an 86 mile trip from Brantingham to Oswego.

Thanks for the invite Alf.
