Look What Followed Me Home

Made a quick trip on the weekend to collect a new toy that I picked up last week. Was a long 3250km drive over three days on the weekend, but I think it was worth it. Here it is.

However, I really bought it for me to use on those trips where I am off on my own or with friends who have their own tents/campers. We are keeping our 19', so I guess we are now officially a 2 Escape family.

Given that they are no longer being made and that there are only about 100 (plus or minus a few) 15's in existence, the Escape 15 group seems to be a very exclusive club!

In looking more closely at the pictures, I have come to the conclusion you bought it simply because the trailer graphics matched your tow. My kind of thinking.

Two Escapes! Dave you are quite the overachiever.

It'll also be perfect when the son's make their girlfriends into wives and produce little ones. They can use the 19, and you and DW can tag along in the 15.

Karen, you are not the only one to notice the color coordination. The first person to suggest this was the seller when we met during pickup.

The graphics also match quite well with those on our 19' so I imagine the 19' and 15' will look quite good together also.
