Hi and welcome to the forum. I cannot believe how good these escapes look even after a decade or more of use. The gelcoat on yours looks awesome! She's a beaut!

Hi Donna
Thank you for the information. I have a little list in my field notes book and I’ll add that one. In the covid 19 self imposed isolation I live for little positives so today I had a few. Went for drive up groceries with Rita at the wheel so I could look around. It’s the peak of the deer rut this week and I saw a nice buck whitetail.
Had a red bellied woodpecker on the feeder today and saw a mated pair of
RedTailed Hawks in two fence posts, Had a good dinner with about the last of my tomatoes from the garden. And learned another early Escape owner thanks to you. Have a great weekend.
Iowa Dave

If you want to peruse some mods that have made a huge difference in the function of our 2010 then check out this thread:
https://www.escapeforum.org/forums/f...con-12996.html

Oh and did you confirm that the frame recall work was done? There are actually two for the early 19’s - the first was mending plates welded on the outside where the front “A” meets the straight frame rails and then another with square steel tube welded underneath. Let me know if you need any more info.
Thanks for the links rubicon. I will be doing at least a few of the mods you (and others) have done to sweeten an already pretty sweet little camper. Eventually. “Ready to go” with appointments and layout was a big selling feature from the start.

I can confirm both frame recalls have been done

Still have plans to move some gear around on the reach. The configuration is per original build with the two sideways propane tanks deep in the reach.

The front storage box on the new E19’s just make too much sense NOT to retrofit (they look right as well) This will require moving some already welded components on the reach.

Cheers

I had a nice conversation with Reace on this at the Escape rally in May of 2019. Along with comparing numbers with a couple other owners who were at the rally i feel confident on our “vintage sequence”. We know numbers 3,5,6,7 on the 21s. In addition there were three 21 “prototypes” according to Reace, not figuring into our calculation of sequence. Wish I could help you more. Just understand that the serial numbers are not “specific” to a particular model but to the overall builds.

I had #13 of the new E21 series and since it was late Nov, Tammy made it a 2014 model.

Hi Jim thanks for the note, I will mark it down in my book. Two entries in two days, can’t beat that. Hope you’re doing well and ready for Winter.
