Fair enough. I'd take Portland over Seattle in a heartbeat! Plus, one of the nicest places I've ever planted our 19 is on the Rouge River in Grants Pass.

New Escape

Folks:
I guess I was so excited yesterday when I posted that I failed to mention that we had ordered a 17B--I probably should have started a new thread. However, our reasons for finally placing an order (after considering it for months) were the same as Oregonians. As I was responding to Oregonian's post concerning his order for a 19, I can easily understand how folks would conclude that we were buying a 19 also. However, while my wife loves the 19, we are afterall buying a camping trailer. After many years of backpacking, we found camping in a Tab positively luxurious! Thus, I've convinced my wife that the lighter weight and smaller size of the 17 makes it the right choice for us. Hopefully, this will be the correct choice for the foreseeable future and we won't be looking to trade up in a couple of years. Thanks!
Dave

Congrats Dave and Penny! We were seriously considering the 17b, if we didn't have the two kiddos we probably would have gone that way.

Welcome, Dave and Penny, from another backpacking Dave and 17B owners in Utah (and yes, you probably should have started a new thread). We are happy after upgrading our camping vehicle from a VW Westfalia to a 17B, and you should be similarly pleased with your upgrade from a Tab. We agree with your reasons to choose a 17, too. Would you like a closer look at a 17B and/or discuss build options?

- Dave and Jane
