I saw a guy with a similar sign on an interstate approach corner. So extrapolating that, perhaps if a person set up a plea stop on a corner near the major rallies he'd get a bingo.
Worth a try.

Iowa Dave: As you are from Iowa, you know we live in Scamp country. I attended a rally a few weeks ago, and it was predominantly Scamps and Casitas. There was a Parkliner, Lil Snoozy, Trillium, Boler, Bigfoot and our UHaul, but no Escapes. As Karen H. Pointed out, most of the 15s (based on the owner map) are on the west cost or BC.

I know the prefect 15 is out there waiting to come home with me. As as Donna D states, I will love the one I am with (our UHaul) until then.

Pat, you've clearly done a fine job making your UHaul look nearly new. Any 15 will be lucky when you win the sweepstakes!

Thoer (aka Eric):

I know I will give the 15 a good home, what I am worried about is if the buyers of the UHaul will do the same. I see what some people do to their UHauls and I am horrified. I know..I know it's their trailer and they can do what ever they want, but I can still worry.

Hi: Lv4toys... Screen potential buyers... You don't want anyone to turn a perfectly restored retro Uhaul trailer into a "Lemonade stand"!!! Alf

Pat, yes we see quite a few Scamps up in this country. Not to brag but several times When we have been camped. Scamp owners have asked to look our 19 over. The best compliment an Escape owner can receive in my opinion is when a Scamp owner with a new camper mumbles " Well, I can see I made a mistake." Headroom for tall guys is an issue in Scamps. One camper told us that when we pulled in he asked his fellow Scamp owner, " What's that, a Scamp on Steroids?"
Attending rallies is a good way to see Escapes and while their owners are generally proud of what they have, they respect and often previously owned a different brand of fiberglass unit. And no, you're not a hoarder if you have a newer Escape and a vintage anything else. Best of luck in your 15 search. I've worked with red hot steel and it's true, you got
to have the hammer ready when it is time to strike.

An Escape 15A was posted this afternoon on FiberglassRV.com. It's in Calgary, so you might not be interested, but You can decide.

Thanks Mary F.

I have discussed the trailer with the seller. It's a beautiful trailer, but we really want water and the awning. We planned on adding them, but after factoring in those costs, it seems prudent to wait for a trailer with them already installed.

Finding a trailer close to home or even on the west coast would really simplify the transaction.

Thanks again.

I am still an Escape Wannabe......

My wife and I attended the 2016 Mississippi Escape Rendezvous. After seeing all of the beautiful trailers, it gave my wife and I a lot to think about. Unfortuneately, we are not thinking along the same lines. I still want the 15a, but she wants something larger - a 17 or 19. Personally I think it's a ploy on her part to keep our UHaul as she knows I will not trade off my beloved Tacoma.

Still looking.....
