Escape rally in the USA?

Do they have a rally anywhere in the lower 48 for all us in the USA?
If not, why not?
And remember, where ever you go, don't worry, you're in an Escape!

Start one! It doesn't take much. Decide WHEN and WHERE. Folks that can, will show up. You can't please all the people all the time. If you decide you'll "host," post. It starts with one or two and can grow. Don't worry about being organized, folks just want to camp together.

if the OP is asking for an ETI sponsored lower 48 location, that would be an excellent email to ETI.

The Escape Rally in Osoyoos is almost right on the border. All Americans are more than welcome, and many do make the trip, and add to the fun time.

Just a suggestion off the top of my head...
If ETI wants to sponsor a second rally, how about opposite to Osoyoos in June in multiple ways: winter in Florida.

I think ETI is trying to fulfill orders for trailers.

I really enjoyed the 5 day trip to Osoyoos and hope to try a different route this year. That said, there is no reason why another rally can not be had somewhere in the lower 48, particularly for those who can not attend the Osoyoos meet. When I planned the one here in Pennsylvania this past September I contacted Escape and they provided me with some "schwag" Schwag - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia when I attended Osoyoos.
If you are inclined, find a nice spot, campground that is centrally located and post it. If you build it they will come.....
I believe the middle of the lower 48's is somewhere in Kansas which is no more than a 2-3 day drive for most of us.

I feel that Escape sponsoring the rally in Osoyoos makes total sense due to that area having the largest concentration of Escape ownership. They get the most "bang for the buck" there. Due to the smaller concentration throughout the lower 48, we as owners can grow more rallys like the ones in CA, TX, and PA. I'm going to join with the egg campers in TN to mix with other Escape owners on the east coast.

Let's not forget Alf's annual Niagara Falls, Canada Escape rally held in September every year also, less than 30 minutes into Canada from Niagara Falls, NY. It is probably no more than a 2 day drive for anyone this side of the Mississippi River.
