Yet Another Escape headed to Texas!

Well after 3 years of owning a Casita SD 17' trailer we are moving up to an Escape 19' Did a lot of online research and talked to a local Escape owner here in Texas and viewed his trailer 3 times. We are now on the road back to Texas from Chilliwack with our new 19' Escape. You can see our interior and follow our trip back to Texas on this travel blog. Also learned a lot from this forum as well. We are very happy with the trailer so far, and working with Tammy and Reace to customize the trailer was part of the fun. Well that's all for now as its time to post the days report to the travel blog.

Hi: jvanbavel...Thanks for the travel blog... I love reading them almost as much as using our Escape 5.0. I know you'll enjoy your Escape and be giving lots of tours as well. Alf

Hi Jay,
Welcome to the Escape family. We're in San Antonio and like you bugged Brad a bit before ordering. Looks like we will need to have a Hill Country Escape rally, after all we have enough of them here!

Re: Yet Another Escape headed to Texas!

Me again, how do you pick out those neat counter top colors and material from Texas? Does tammy send you a vendor link to look at, or you you find your own vendor? Thanks.

She told me to go to Home Depot/Lowes and pick a color and get the stock number. She can then order it.

Interesting, I never knew Home Depot/Lowes has the cloth used for seat cushions and window valance. Guess i never looked.

Actually HD/Lowes for the countertop and almost any fabric store for the material. We purchased our fabric on line and then sent it to Escape.
