Welcome to the forum and Escape community. It has been very helpful in helping us choose a trailer, make our build sheet and operate the trailer. Before our Escape 21 we had a Nash 19B that was destroyed by leaks over its 12 year lifespan. It's what sent us in search of a more leak resistant moulded fibreglass trailer.
You are fortunate to live on Vancouver Island. There are so many places to park a trailer and enjoy the supernatural beaches and forests. We are just getting ready for our first fishing trip of the year. Loving our Escape!
