Love it! I had a 17B in Madison CG 4/28-5/4 and moved to Fishing Bridge afterward. YNP - what a wonderful place!!! I had been in warm areas (Tombstone AZ and Zion NP) So, on the way to Yellowstone, I stopped at a travel center in Idaho to winterize. The low temps in Madison were in the low 20s. So, I basically dry camped for a few days. Lots of snow this trip!

A bit behind it was a Voodoo blue FJ Cruiser. When I got to the factory shortly after that, a new customer told me the guy was from Alabama and was there to pick up his new trailer. Yay for him!

Heading home later that day an Escape pulled off I5 just south of Bellingham - probably heading towards Anacortes. I believe it had red graphics, but I don't know the tow vehicle as there was a ton of traffic I had to concentrate on. Plus, they were in front of me.

Farther south on 5, I saw what I think was a 21' without graphics heading north. I don't know the trailers enough to recognize if it was an actual Escape or another brand. Nor am I 100% on the size unless I see the graphics that tell me what it is.

Saw several Scamps and another unknown fiberglass trailer. Great weather for camping!

And, of course I saw WADS of trailers at the factory, but those don't really count as I knew I'd see 'em there. I'm making several reports on my visit there today, in separate threads.
Sorry to be way behind times...but the Voodoo FJ was me. I was a nervous wreck prior to pulling the 17B across country. The nerves settled down as soon as I got out of the Seattle traffic. The camper pulls like a dream!

Perhaps we viewed your 19? Were you the ones who showed Carmen and me the bed slat modification? Names get lost at my age...Glenn.

Going south on 101 on the west side of the Olympics we saw a 17 north bound. This is a great way to see the same country we have in the past ridden our motorcycles but now we stay dry and have our own bed. The rain starts late Wed. so I read. Nancy is now talking to Iowa Rita, even if a pocket call.

Back at ya Jack and Nancy - glad we met at both locations...

Heading north on I5 around Chehalis around noonish on June 1st saw a 21 with red graphics (I think!) pulled by a dark SUV-type vehicle.

I was headed south in my truck pulling my naked 21 (without graphics), heading to Corvallis.

Saw another 21 with red graphics (I do remember that!) pulled over at the viewpoint along the river on the 205 bypass in the Portland area. Around 2PM or so. The male driver was just getting out of his vehicle as I zipped by going the other direction. Doubt he saw me.

Didn't see any Escapes coming home yesterday.

Unless I looked in my mirrors!

Oh! Yes! That was me! Guess we have met. This was our first rally and there were a lot of folks to try and keep track of.

Heck, Paula seemed to be having trouble keeping track of you.
