I took this a couple of days ago. We were camped along the Columbia River at Lone Pine Fruit Stand and Espresso near Wenatchee, WA. We found them via Harvest Hosts. Harvest Hosts lists wineries, farms, etc that allow RVs to stay for an evening. There isn't any charge, but the expectation is that you will buy some wine or produce from your host. In this case we got breakfast, and some fruit. It was our first Harvest Host encounter, but it certainly won't be our last.

That sounds like a great arrangement to me, for anyone who wants to explore and enjoy the local community. Thanks for the tip

Harvest Hosts

By the way, the people who run Harvest Hosts have an expedition-style motorhome with a body built by Unicell based on their cargo body... it's not a travel trailer, and certainly not an Escape, but it does have a moulded fiberglass shell in common.

I have a huge smile on my face while looking at these pictures. I can hardly wait to have our 15' B Escape trailer (completion 10/31/14). We plan to drive up from Sacramento mid-November to pick it up. SOOOOO EXCITED!!!! Taking the coast route on the way back. If folks have suggestions on places to stay, it would be much appreciated. After looking at this thread, Sea Perch RV park in Yachats, OR is a definite must. This little 15 foot trailer is WAY more exciting than purchasing a house or anything else for that matter. We love the outdoors - kayaking, paddle board, rock climbing, fishing and getting to know warm, positive people.

Got our trailer home from Chillawack. Towed great. It may be parked for the winter but still a nice view.

At the Russell Gates Fishing Access Area just west of Ovando, MT. A few camping sites along the Blackfoot River. Very peaceful, even though it is just off highway 200. If you stay there, try the Stray Bullet Cafe in Ovando for breakfast.

Leon - looks like you are enjoying a great trip back home with The Skylark. A good friend who recently passed away lived in Ovando for a while and it looks to have some spectacular views. He made small wood artworks that were sold locally and all the profits went to help community projects.

Jen and Angie: Sea Perch RV Resort in Yachats, Oregon is as close to ocean as you can get, but be prepared for a very large fee for staying there. Also, you'll be in the middle of lots of Big Rigs!

I love this thread. We should make it mandatory for anyone camping to take a photo out their back window...
