Escape 19 to view near Dallas, TX?

I live McKinney, TX just north of Dallas. Have 2004 Casita Spirit Deluxe 17 I'm looking to replace with Escape 19. I think I'm ready to place my order, but wife wants to see one in person.

I contacted ETI and got 2 referrals, one is near Houston, a little too far to drive, and the other one close by hasn't responded to text or phone voice message (maybe traveling?).

Anyone near Dallas that has Escape 19 would like to show? Please send a PM and I will respond ASAP! Thanks, Charles

There is a 5.0 near you. I can't remember if it is a TA or not. I know it isn't a 19, but you could get some of your questions asked by viewing it.

I would ask again for "any" Escapes near you. We live in Tulsa and I wanted to see a TA. The nearest 5.0 was west of FW. When I inquired about other Escapes there was a 21 in a suburb of Tulsa.

Thanks for quick reply, yes appears there are not a lot of Escape trailers in TX.

I've had my Casita for going on 11 years, so I don't have a lot of questions about travel trailers. The really big plus with Casita, that was hard for me to give up, is the ac will run off just one Honda 2000 gen. I hang out in my Casita during the summer with 100f plus temps, and run the AC all night on the generator, works great!

I just recently got another Honda 2000 companion gen and plan to link the 2 together for electric power for my new Escape 19.

I think Escape 19 would be a nice step-up for me: more room, bigger refrig, oven (I plan to get the oven upgrade), better windows/ ventilation, better insulation, storage box, window in front of trailer (can't see out front of Casita 17), 2 axles, etc. The wife likes to hang out in the rear bed looking out the windows in the Casita, so the Escape 19 is perfect for us, the 21 not so well.

There are 2 rallies coming up "2017 Kansas Extravaganza" that may have some Escape trailers, and "2017 Mississippi River Rendezvous" which should definitely have Escape trailers, that we could go to.

Going to pickup the new trailer will be a big adventure for us. I've started reading some of the threads about others going to Chilliwack BC that will be very helpful. Thanks, Charles
