We actually picked up a 19', not a 5.0. We also kept to I90 to I94 and back to I90. We wanted to go further north, but kept to that route due to the chance of snow in April. (We still had two days driving in snow!) From Asheville, we divided the trip as follows: Indianapolis (495 mi), Eau Claire (498 mi), Bismarck (548 mi), Billings (427 mi), Spokane (554 mi) and Chilliwack (407 mi). We took 9 weeks returning through WA, OR, CA, NV, AZ, UT, CO, NM, TX, LA, MS, AL, TN, and NC! 3000 miles out, 6700 back. Great trip with a great trailer!

Just curious Kevin, since you drove out on I90 and I94, guess you didn't see anything right

I know when we head south from our place on I29 as far as Fargo there's nothing to see, oh, maybe because it's very flat and nothing but farm fields and few trees We only moved here from Southern ON last summer and we get excited now when we see a hill even if it's an overpass or underpass approach!

Just to get this back on track, here in MB there's only three Escapes that I know of, and south of us, the owners map show none in ND or SD so our chances of seeing another Escape close to home is minimal, unless you go elsewhere like I did to last year's Niagara Wine Escape.

Close enough...

At the Lynden Fair today, I noticed a dude with an Escape Trailer Industries shirt (actually, I noticed his camera first). Being the shy and retiring person I am, I marched right up and introduced myself. Turns out it was Brian of "Ladybug" fame. Almost as good as seeing an Escape!

We've been travelling all over BC for the last two weeks and haven't seen one Escape. Where is everyone?

We're still have'n fun...

I'm in Mara Lake BC. Just outside of Enderby.
Whispering Pines private camp ground. Just left Okanagan North Provincial after a two week stay. I haven't seen one Escape in the last month.

Yours should be the 901st Escape, not by model. Ours is in the 400s from 2011. The 901 may be in your closet.

Tammy told me that they would do something special for the 500th but I never heard if they did. Surely they will for the 1000th which may already be sold. I wonder what model and when it will be done. Maybe someone can ask when talking to them.

kstock11 ..Thanks much for the information.We have only 4 weeks, this time.Plan to fit in some camping US side near ETI then Yellowstone.I know it will be wonderful and very different from the tent camping I grew to love years ago.With this forum I feel very confident that an Escape was a smart purchase for my first/last trailer.Thank you all for this WONDERFUL forum.

I asked Tammy yesterday about the VIN numbering - trailer #1000 is now scheduled for a build, so they're restarting their number sequence for the last 3 digits of the VIN at 001. It is sequential regardless of what model the trailer is.
