Hello from North Vancouver

Hi, we are Javier and Iselin from North Vancouver, BC. We just ordered our 17B and expect to get in by April. We are now going through the options and would very much appreciate your suggestions based on your experience. Thanks!!

Suggestions should be based on your experience. Do you like boondocking or do you resort to parking spaces with full hookups - RV resorts.
I prefer no services and no people ( or as few as possible ). Next time around, I'd have dual 6V batteries and solar installed, instead of lugging my portable panels and/or my generator.

My 17B was a step up from a tent trailer, so I opted for little more than a 5 cu. ft. fridge and Maxxfan.

Welcome. The North Van. contingent is growing. We'll soon have enough to have our own rendezvous.

If there's anything that you'd like to visualize in person, such as a stove top turned 90* etc. just ask. It's likely that at least one of us will have the option being considered.

Welcome aboard, wow, another Escape in North Van, like Ron says we can have our own Rally soon.
We bought our 17 b in 2005.The last few years we installed solar and aluminum wheels, TV,locking battery box, dual batteries of course.Also installed an extra black tank but nowadays the black tanks are larger than the original seven and a half gallons.
Like I have said before, there are times when we miss that 17 b.We only had the 3 cubic fridge, but it was enough for us since we always carry an ice chest any way.Installed a better awning than the original.
So, welcome to the ever growing group of North Van owners.
Happy New Year.

We are also from North Vancouver and just picked up our brand new 21, having previously had a 17B. We are in the Delbrook area if you want to come round and look at our trailer and options. PM me if you would like to make contact. Welcome to our group!!
