May be a Escape owner soon

Hi All

I have been over @ FGRV for a couple of years and we have a wonderful Surfside.

We have been shopping for an Escape for a while with no success but i think the right deal may have finally found us.

Hopefully this trailer checks out as good as it sounds and we wil be the proud second owners of a 17B

Alan

Welcome Alan. Good to see another local join the Escape fraternity. By the way, there is another St. Albert resident on this forum who also has an Escape (Dave MacRae), maybe one of your neighbors?

Boy of boy, more of that Northern Alberta riffraff joining and buying Escapes. Whatever is happening? Must be some kind of conspiracy.

Welcome to the site, Alan.
Hope this works out good for your guys. Unless abused, any used Escape is still in great shape.

Is that a mud flap underneath the front of the trailer I see in the picture? Now you can change your avatar info.

This will drive you nuts, waiting for fair weather.

Where's the battery? Mine is on rear ( bumper ) in 2008.

I'm guessing it's on the driver side of the rear bumper like my 2005?

Aha. Mine is on passenger side. That's likely why I can't see it in the pic.

Wow got a great surpize today

Brother in law brought our trailer home to us today instead of next week

woo hoo

So answers to the questions are:

Yes that is a rock guard on the front and it also has snap on padded rock gaurds on the lower front of the trailer.

The Battery is on the drivers side back bumper.

This trailer is awesome so far

Well now you have to try out the furnace. Turn on the propane, light up the furnace, grab a glass of port wine and just sit and wonder.

Get out your journal. Write down first impressions. You'll never feel those exact same feelings again. You'll make more great memories, but those first ones are so very special.

Pictures? Did you say you were going to post pictures?
