Umm, no, it would take 12 months - as the chart annotates.

I suppose it would be five months of driving days, with seven months of stationary days interspersed to stay in synch with the seasons.

With that overall pace, I can't imagine wanting to rush across the continent in June and July as would be required by the plan, but it's an amusing idea.

If I tried that trip it'd have to have spikes off it to Massachusetts every month for grandkids birthdays and such, wonder how much that would add to the trip.

interesting trip...looking at that map, wondering what is the northern most point IN Canada that any of you Escapees have been... especially to the central or eastern part?..map looks like a lot of potentially undiscovered camping in Canada...with road access probably being the barrier..

Thanks, Jim I've logged that in my future trip planning. Now that is a trip that would be most interesting to experience. I'd have to get one of Robert's Loggers to log the temperatures to see if it really works.

Great job with the custom air conditioning. I like the idea of it being quite. I have never had A/C on a trailer, but I sure have heard other folk's running. I will be getting A/C on my 5.0, but don't see how a fit like this would work for me.

Yep, it would take some rethinking for sure. Not saying that it's possible, but the only place it could 'possibly' go on a 5er is at the rear over the dinette.

That would be the easy part, just a reverse of what rubicon did. The tough part is figuring out a place for the condensing unit. Not to keen on having it hanging off the back.

I thought that's what the 1Up was for, 2 bikes and an air conditioner.
