We Have an Escape!

Hello All,

Michelle and I are super excited and also feeling quite lucky and grateful. We just got a pre-owned 2017 17B. We picked it up this past Sunday.

Our first RV shakedown will be at the upcoming New England Fiberglass Rally. We're also now fully equipped to go full-time for a year beginning in October 2019.

A big thanks to fellow forum member tburt for all the tlc he gave this 17B and for his kind and generous assistance.

Our pup Chloe approves!

Look at that crooked RV parking on the pavement slap in our back yard!

Hey that’s a nice looking rig to go with your good looking dog. Don’t forget the Wine Escape rally at Niagara Falls in September. Always room for a 17.

Best of luck with the trailer. I commend you for trying full-timing in a 17.

Congratulations on the new 17B. Looks like you are in for fun times. I really like your Bernese. My son has one and he is a very easy going well tempered dog.

Thank you! I know, it's going to be a bit tight at times I'm sure.

Thank you! We'll keep the Niagara Falls rally in mind. Didn't know about it. We're still working on out travel route.

Oh nice! You've got a Berner in the family. They are well tempered and sweet. Luckily Chloe is on the smaller side for a Berner at 72lbs. If she were bigger we'd have been looking for a bigger RV!
