OK - a cool "sighting" while we "Escaped"! This retro outfit pulled in near us yesterday at Ponderosa State Park, McCall. The owner built the trailer between the bottom and top of an old Coleman tent trailer, and built the tug(boat) from scratch. Gotta love it...Glenn.

I'm curious Glenn. How does he tow both of them?

Not Glenn, but triple towing is legal in Idaho. (And a surprising number of other states, I learned as I was confirming this is true.)

He had swapped the trailer and boat positions by the time we took the photo. Initially caught our attention when he drove by our campsite (#1), trailer behind the TV, boat behind the trailer.

We were traveling incognito (sans trailer), but we saw you!!
Santa Rosa has a very nice state campground but every time I go by, it is closed.

Backing up must be a bit tricky triple towing ....

Saw 2 Escape 19's this afternoon, both with red graphics. One pulled by red SUV heading east on the Trans Canada Hwy just east of Castle Junction in Banff N P at 12:50. The second at 2:00 pm heading north through Radium Hot Springs pulled by a red pick up truck. I waved at both but you probably paid no mind as I was on my motorcycle.

I see more Escapes when I'm on my motorcycle then when I'm towing mine. Today a 19, blue graphics, white SUV towing around 4:30 pm southbound on Hwy 93 in Kootanay NP while on my way home from Invermere, BC to Canmore, AB

I was thinking the same thing. Luckily, the campsite in the photo is on the Aspen Loop at Ponderosa SP, and they're pull through spaces.

It is a bit tricky. I have done it before, but with longer trailers. Just like with one trailer and thinking about where you direct the back end of the tow vehicle to get the trailer to go where you want, you have to think about where you need the back end of the first trailer to direct the second one where you want.

It has been over 25 years since I did this, but it would be fun to try it again, but only for a short bit.
