Now was the time to do it. It just saves a lot of time and money to get it right the first time. We were sure it was the 19 but once we compared the trailers side by side in Chilliwack, we ended up ordering the 21. Enjoy. Loren

Shortly after placing our order, we had an opportunity to see a couple of 19's locally. While we liked the 19 and loved the roomy feel, we still felt good about ordering the 17B because we felt like the layout of the 17, with two separate seating areas, would give us the flexibility that we wanted.

As time went by, as I'm bad to do, I started second guessing myself a bit. So I really wanted to see a 17B up close before we were past the point of no return.

This past Sunday, it turns out that our very own Jon Vermilye was going to be camping about 20 minutes from my moms's house, so there was my chance.

So after seeing Jon's camper, while there was nothing at all that I dis-liked about it, and I still felt like it would be the perfect camper for us right now, while we are still working and only taking short trips, we decided that for the long run, the 19 would probably work better for us when we start taking longer trips and spending more time in it.

Our goal all along was for this to be the one and only camper that we bought. So I reached out to Escape yesterday and let them know that we had decided to move up to the 19. And of course, they were more than happy to take more money from us . So now, instead of the 2016 17B, we will be taking delivery of a 2016 19. Same build date of August 3rd.

While it will be a bit more money now, we know that it would be a lot more money later to get into a 19 if we waited until retirement.
Sitting over here in Cookeville laughing.
Good Choice!

Congrats Greg and Teresa. Yes, a Classic rally sounds like a great idea. Who knows-maybe Escape will become the official State camper.

Nathan, from what you've written I think the 5.0 will suit your family. If we were traveling with kids, I'd want a 5.0 too.

I knew that you would get a kick out of it Tom. Of course, now that means two 19's at the eggcamper rallies with the same graphics, since we liked your colors so much. Of course, there will be a big truck in front of yours so they should be easy to tell apart

It does sound like Tennnessee was well represented on 4/1 for new orders, so perhaps it will

Well, after a night of sleeping on it, we are more convinced than ever that we've made the correct choice now. August 3rd will be here before we know it. Of course, I keep hoping/waiting for that call or email from ETI telling us that our build date has been moved up with their expanded production capacity.

Now we're sure about this aren't we? There is still the 21 or the 5.OTA to consider. But I have to be serious about one thing. That time is going to fly by and your build sheet will be due before you know it. Loren
