hello from Washington


My husband Mike and I, and our trailer Turtle, are new to this forum, but not on the FGRV forum, so showing these pics will be redundant to those of you who participate in both forums, but we are just as delighted with our little Escape egg as everyone else here so thought I'd post a few photos. We upgraded from a 22 yr. old 13' Burro to a 2005 17' Escape in March. We loved our Burro, the cuteness, simplicity and 'vintage' factor, but our bodies have new needs.

I enjoy the forum, last time I checked it out there were some very inappropriate postings that had nothing to do with trailers - apparently it had been hacked. I am glad it was rescued and is a good source of info. i.e. we also have a chronic 1/3 full indicator on our grey water tank and appreciate Reece's recommendation for cleaning it out.

See you down the road!

Here's our Turtle, inside and out (we have also been featured on the homepage of http://www.fiberglassrv.com/ for the past month) :

Hi Penney,

Welcome to the Escape gang! You will find this forum very helpful and nice! Similar nice to FROG.

I always cannot help it but staring at the photo of Turtle when going to FROG. In a nutshell, I ended up ordering a 17'B. I am psyched about it, but still have to wait until spring 2010 to get my hands on it... Very nice pictures, thank you for sharing.

Congrats on Turtle's "Headline" spot over on MFROG's home page and welcome to the Escape forum.
I have found both forums to be extremely helpful & worthwhile.

Re: hello from Washington

Thanks for the pictures. Many of us enjoy checking out the decor of other Escapes. Congratulations on being on the "front cover".
Peace and Sunshine
