There are 2 sizes used by Escape, the typical red handled size and one smaller. I'd get one of those multi bit sets with one handle.

Alf, I know we "foreigners" are a bit strange on many things but at least outside Ontario most of us now buy our milk properly, in two or four litre plastic jugs, not plastic bags of one and one third litres for which you need a special container into which to place the darn bag! Maybe we'll give you our unused one when you visit.

It would be nice if all screwdriver heads had corresponding colours like Robertson does, for a quick find in the toolbox.

#0 (yellow) - used for very small screws #0-4
#1 (green) - second most common, used for #5-6 screws
#2 (red) - by far the most common, used for #8-10 screws
#3 (black) - used for large screws, #12 or larger

Having the #1 & 2 (green & red) Robertson drivers will do about 95% of the screw heads. This is all I carry when pulling the trailer. Very rare to use the other two.

I am generally not a fan of multi-bit screwdrivers, though there is merit in having one for compactness with travelling. Do make certain you don't go for price when getting one. Spend the money on a good one, like this Klein model. You can always carry extra bits or nut driver heads to use with it.
