So Deb and I are southbound on 101 in California, about 15 miles south of Crescent City. We are hell bent on Mad River RV Resort in Arcata. We've got our apt. with DMV Eureka on Monday, and need the entire week-end to get in the right frame of mind. A beautiful Escape 19 comes around the bend in front of us and continues northbound toward Crescent City. I'm honking and waving and the 19 is waving, and it was a 2 lane portion of the highway. The two beauties passed silently. Salute' to our unknown friend.

Four Escape Sightings in three days Oregon coast

This was just our fifth trip in our new Escape. We were on the Oregon coast April 28 to 30. I had notice only a handful of Escapes since we first became interested over a year ago. The last two days we saw 4 other Escapes between Waldport and Florence, Oregon. Two at Tillicum Beach Forest ServiceCampground where we stayed, one at Beachside State Park and one south of Yachets on highway 101. Gosh Escape trailers are the "in thing" right now. I never had an "in thing before".

So having said that, I would venture to guess that would be a good addition to your other camping resources even though it may be in its infancy. I certainly wouldn't rely on it exclusively. Having dealt with her through Frugal RV, I would give it a chance.
Thank you- I will look into it further. I did find some RV friendly Airbnb, too. The suggestions on the forum are great also!

We just returned from two months in Arizona. Saw a few Escapes along the way.

3/6/2016 Saw an Escape 15 going N between Las Vegas & Kingman, we were going S.

3/6/2016 Likely saw an Escape 5th wheel in downtown Kingman. We were entering the freeway and think we saw them across the intersection at the stop light.

3/20/2016 An Escape 19 outside Sam Simon on I10 going west, we were going east.

3/29/2016 Saw an Escape 17 in the Gilbert Ray CG outside Tucson. We camped there a few days while they were also there. It could be the same one Nindy saw St. Patrick's Day, with the time gap isn't right?

4/25/2016 Feeling we hadn't seen many Escapes on the trip the most amazing thing happened. We stopped at Valley of Fire on April 25. On the way in to the campground we saw and followed an Escape. It was going pedal to the metal knowing exactly where it was going. They disappeared around the back loop of the small campground while we stayed in the main loop. Later found out it was an Escape 15 from Washington/Baja owned by Bill & Dori.

Then, to our amazement, an Escape 19 came in followed by an Escape 17. The 19 is a 2011 model from Chilliwac and the 17 is brand new and on its way back to Ontario.

We all stayed that night, which was cool and rainy. For some time there were more Escapes in the campground than all other models combined. How's that for luck hu?

SO, does anyone here resemble any of these sightings?

Wow, that is surprising! Escapes are getting more and more common, and with the factory expansion.....
