I saw a Bonair ( used, I think ) sitting outside the main arena at an RV show that was attended by Escape.
I thought it weirdly squished looking and didn't bother to look inside. Checked out the Escape 17 and a Nash and made my decision.

The 19 in Hope and on the Coquihalla on Thursday this week was probably us. On our recent trip north we saw a 19 in Dawson Creek, a 5.0 TA in Prince George, a 17 in Jasper, a 19 in McBride, a 5.0 single axle in Kamloops, and several around Chilliwack on the highway (a 5.0 TA and a 19 we think). We had several folks on the road and at the campsites ask about Escape trailers and showed three different people the trailer (folks from Bellingham, California and Williams Lake). This is the most Escapes we have ever seen on the road.

The only year that Bonair produced the Oxygen was 2002, the same year that Reace and Tammy started Escape. It could have been the last of Bonair crossing paths with the first year Escape as new products, it could have been old stock of a Bonair dealer, or it could have been used.

The outside of the Oxygen was a bit strange, and the rounded tail never made sense to me (except to re-use the mould shape of the front), but I think that the inside was clever use of the odd space. Escapes, in contrast, are more functional... and with a exterior shape that was a quarter-century old to start, more conservative.

If you ever spot an Oxygen on the road, it's easy to recognize - no wondering if it's some other brand.

We thought it odd that in the whole time we were in Alaska, about 6 weeks, we never saw an Escape. We saw about 3 in BC/Yukon on our way through. But none in Alaska? Curious

There's a few but Alaska is 2X the size of Texas. Bet you saw some aluminum SOB's though

It may be 2X size of Texas, but the highway system is not that vast. And, yes, we saw everything aluminum there was to see, along with a few Casitas. Actually the Alaska roads aren't bad, and they are being repaired all the time. We did have a muddy day on Top of the World Highway, and we did not go north of Fairbanks.

Escape sighting?

Just saw a 19' with red graphics towed by a Highlander, filling up at a gas station in Monte Vista, CO. After watching a parade, I dove in across the street at a coffee shop to get my daily dose of caffeine and wifi. I'm currently staying just outside of Del Norte at a friends ranch. Been on the road for almost a month and it's the first Escape I have seen this trip!

We saw an Escape 17 yesterday, on the east side of Cottonwood Pass, CO 306, at 5:00 pm. I think the graphics were gray.
