We placed an order and put down the deposit on a new Escape 19 earlier in the week, with a March production date. We're planning to take full advantage of the three months of free storage after completion, and come to the PNW to pick it up sometime in the Spring, once the weather is a bit more pleasant for traveling. Now, in the next few weeks, we've got to get the build sheet finalized, since March isn't that far off.
We are new to trailers, but we've done a lot of camping over the years. I went a good way down the road with the folks at Casita, but saw the Escape late in that process and the Escape 19 seems like a lot more trailer for a little more money, so we changed directions.
I'm looking forward to using the resources of this website and want to thank everyone who is contributing their experience, knowledge and wisdom to it.
