Debuted our 19' at a rally

We're just home from the FGRV rally at Lake Casitas near Ojai, CA. 90 or so rigs, mostly Casita's (get it!). Over a 2 day period, we showed our trailer to somewhere around 50-75 people mostly rally attendees! It was there, they just kept coming, and coming, and coming! At one point, we had a line of 8 people outside waiting to get in! We had to take a break and took off on Sunday. When we got back, one couple had been waiting for us for a couple hours to see inside!

Hey, I had to buy an Escape to see how amazing they are but apparently the word is out! WOW!

I'm guessing from the enthusiasm, 3 or 4 were on the phone today with the factory placing an order!

Greg

Hopefully they will mention your name, I received credit of 5 referrals on my new Escape and I already have people making appointments to see my new one next month when it arrives.

The cards Escape supplied with the trailer came in handy. I have 2 referrals pending now. Money's nice but it's also great to help get the word out. The more the merrier!

Very cool, Greg. Nice to have folks oohing and ahing over your trailer, eh?

Good for you! You're proud of what you own and proudly show it off. I think that's totally cool. I know CarolNJim, the hosts for the rally. Even they've change they're "camper." There's room for all brands.

Repeat after me... business cards. Make up "business" cards with your first name(s) and your trailer model/brand. Hand them out like Halloween candy. Even if folks lose the referral card, they'll quite often hang on to a piece of paper thats 3.5"x2" and that may get you some $$.

Hi DonnaD. Camped across from CarolNJimNJerry. They're doing great. Last time organizing the Lake Casitas Rally for them. Paula Chavez will be the new honcho. Come on down next year! Mid 80's all weekend. It's great fun. See you in Bandon and Lake Osoyoos?

Won't be at Osoyoos this year. I'll be patiently(!) waiting for the birth of my 5er... but 2015... look out.

Jerry in his stroller is a hoot! Paula will do great. Everything is pretty much dialed in for the Lake Casitas rally, probably just a checklist to follow.

See you in Bandon!
