Two weeks and counting

Joined this forum in May, after almost buying a Casita. Ordered the 17B in early June, and counting the days now until we drive to Chilliwack to pick it up. Much of what I decided should be on the trailer (It's loaded!) came from reading these posts, and talking to the referral here in town. We're going from pop-up people to a whole new approach, and looking forward to more interactions with you all.

Bob

Re: Two weeks and counting

Congratulations on your new Escape, Bob.

Look forward to your reviews and photos! Have a great trip up there.....and back. Tell me you're spending at least a night in the redwoods in your new 17B?

Re: Two weeks and counting

congratulations, i had to laugh at Tammy when ever i called to add or change something with our trailer because she would laugh at me and ask if i had been reading the forum. The answer was always yes. I am very glad that i have been reading this forum because it changed my opinion or educated me on some things.

Re: Two weeks and counting

We've done the coastal redwoods in the pop-up a number of times. This trip, since we're in Canada, it's a loop through Victoria, Sequim, Portland, Eugene, and McCloud for a change of pace, both with environs and equipment. And, we're not doing any boondocking this go-round.
