E19 F1 October 2023 Delivery

After extensive research and considering Casita, Airstream, and Escape we took the plunge and placed our deposit on a 19. It was closest we could come to all our wants. The only shortcoming was the crawlover bed.

Now it's on to researching solar systems and electronics. And tongue weight. And brake controllers. And air tanks for water systems. And, most importantly, places to go!

It might be aggressive, but we plan to pick up in Washington and tow it back to Ohio.

We’re also looking at an Oct. ‘23 delivery on our 19’ f1. I’m just wondering if there are advantages to picking it up in Washington and not at the Escape facility in Canada. Is there, for example, a difference in customs fees if the owner doesn’t bring the trailer across the border? Anyway, lots to consider!

There is no difference in customs fees either way. Even if you opt for delivery in Chilliwack, ETI will still drive your trailer across the border. This saves those fees.

Picking up in Sumas just saves you from the passport/border crossing hassle. That’s it.

We made the trip this past June from Northern Kentucky/Cincinnati to Sumas. It’s a long drive for sure, but if you have time to make a trip out of it you can create some great memories. Our trip home with stops in Grand Teton NP, Mount Rushmore, Custer SP, and Badlands NP was awesome! (We also planned a stop at Yellowstone NP, but flooding closed the Park - we’re heading back there next year!)

Thanks for that customs information. Also, your trip back home sounds amazing! We’ve seen so little of the country and are really looking forward to exploring.

I am not sure I want to mention this but I have had pressure tanks on a boat instead of an on demand water pump. I also had them rot out and fail. Things got wet.

When I was looking for a replacement pressure tank in a remote location someone asked why I am not using an on demand pump. At the time I didn't even know they existed. I changed to an on demand pump. It took a while to get used to the pump coming on when I turned on the water but I got used to it. The on demand pump is a simpler system (less things to go wrong).

I think Escape installs an on demand water pump as standard. I am sure there is room to install a pressure tank but I ask why go to the expense, give up the storage space and add more complexity and maintenance to the water system?

I carried spare pump parts on the boat but don't on the trailer although it might be a good idea. A spare pump head doesn't take much storage space.

A spare pump can do double duty as a water transfer pump. I modified this with female garden hose fittings and a 12V cigarette lighter style plug to reach exterior outlet. This helps tremendously when filling the onboard tank from containers when boondocking. If the onboard pump were to fail this could be stripped down and easily installed in the trailer.

I like that. If I get a pickup then I can carry extra water and will get a spare pump. I may get one anyway.

If you have the time to pick up your new Escape it is well worth the trip. We spent over 3 weeks to return home to Ohio (and drove a total of over 7,000 miles. You can take your time and make a great vacation on the way home.

We did Rushmore and Custer last summer along with Rocky Mountain and Teddy Roosevelt. With a tent. The trailer will be a huge step up. Depending on actual delivery we could head south to Crater Lake and maybe even Napa, or stay north and do Glacier and the northern section of Roosevelt. Yellowstone and Teton are options as well (it’s been 10 years since we were there).

We should have plenty of time other than avoiding be too far north too late in the year.

I was not planing on the spray foam insulation as it would make it hard to do maintenance.

If you do Napa, I recommend staying at Skyline Wilderness Park. We live in Napa, but stayed at Skyline Park as a "shakedown" of our new E19 - it was great.

If you are able to do Crater Lake there is a USFS park at Union Creek just a few miles south of the lake toward Prospect. Boondock within 25 feet of the rushing Rogue River. One of our favorites.
