Birthday Present

I have been a member here for a few years. Shopping around for trailers and found Escape. I finally took the plunge and purchased the 19 and picked it up on my 60th birthday two weeks ago.
I drove up for the orientation and then took delivery. I love this little trailer. It pulls well with my Nissan Frontier 4x4 V6. We camped all the way back to Texas. Took the HWY 101 down the coast to Northern California and then across to Utah and Arizona with a special stop at Monument Valley.
Only had one problem. The hot water heater only worked 3 times. Contacted ETI and they had a new control board sent to me right away. I got it installed in a few minutes and it was working again, yeah and thanks to Reece.
I'm looking forward to more time out with my Escape 19.
