Linda that must have been the same storm that went through straight west of you here in Leavenworth where we are visiting with daughter and family. I was worried not so much about the trailer but my truck, but as you say the hail was pretty small and did no damage. We head home tomorrow with our Escape after having spent much of the winter in southern TX

Great trip report and pictures, like the choice of fabric.

Had you thought about attending the Mississippi rally the end of September? It looks lIke there will be lots of Escapes of all sizes there.

Thanks for sharing your maiden trip! So exciting!

Hi Nindy,

Love seeing another 17B with gaucho! Great report and beautiful pictures!
I think we missed you at ETI only by a day because we took our 17B to home in Portland on Tuesday.

After spending couple nights in it I too have a organization dilemma. We have 4 people using the trailer so there are things everywhere. Please share any tips you have?

Wish you more great trailer time to come!

Ha, probably don't have any great tips yet! It's just me in my trailer so I'll probably fill all the space on my own. I do keep rethinking what I need and don't need and removing a few things here and there. I'm sure it will all fall in place eventually. That's part of the fun.

Yes, I'm sure the same storm. I heard about the Mississippi rally and will consider that!
