I beg for a 21' Escape measurement

Okay, I waited too long. The guys are coming today to help me turn a boring lawn area into an exciting pad for 21 scheduled for November completion. Some of the pad will be gravel, but under the wheels we'll have driveway pavers, and of course we have to know now where to put those, fore-and-aftwise.

Can anyone provide these measurements?
  • Distance from aft end of spare tire/wheel to aft axle.
  • Distance between axles.

With those two measurements in hand, we can properly place our 32 sq ft paver pad for the wheels.

It's a huge ask, I know. But think how much happiness you'll be helping to bring to our humble parking pad. Thanks.....

Doug, I got 77.0" from the back of the spare tire to the aft axle and 30.25" from axle to axle.

Thanks Rick! Good to know another 21' owner is just up the road from us! I think we'll be driving through your town on our way back from Chilliwack this November -- we're thinking of returning via the PT ferry just to avoid Seattle / Tacoma traffic for our first pull.

Now, out to the yard to mark off the paver area. Thanks again -- very much appreciate the effort.

Doug, the Port Townsend route works with some nice views. Going to and coming back from Chilliwack (maybe 10 times or so) I used the Edmonds - Kingston ferry as the trip was faster than the PT ferry route.

We did it! Got the pad and approach ready for the trailer, and then we picked up the trailer and pulled it home (ETI had it ready for us a month early). It fits... barely... patience required to back it in without the need for an insurance claim. But we're happy campers, that's for sure. Thanks to all for the advice, measurements, and encouragement.

Very nice! You can just tuck it away. I would never make it.
What are those two little trees?

Those are Weeping Alaskan Cedars, just out of diapers, direct from the Home Depot clearance section to our front yard. There was some discussion of "completing a threesome" of these trees - the neighbor has one planted nearby. Sooz says shrubs and trees should appear in threes. I have no opinion on the matter.

We have a weeping Norway spruce and I saw the similarity. Only one. At least it's an odd number.
