Earlier this fall we were in Yosemite. Tent campers near us borrowed our broom to sweep out their tent. With similar experiences to Alan's, I tried to explain it would be easier to shake it out. But, they were from somewhere else (Europe I think) so the concept was not adequately communicated.
I see no reason shaking out an Escape wouldn't work. They are certainly free-standing.
We carry a small battery powered vacuum. I'm sure we'd leave it behind but for that pesky area between the door frame and screen slide, which Jim B. mentioned.
