We just ordered!!!

Hello all! I just wanted to share that we ordered an Escape 21 yesterday!!! We are super excited and have a countdown going--only 258 days to go! We appreciate all of the input here on the forum and the love that is shared for Escape. Ultimately, we decided life is way to short to not order now. We look forward to many years of Escape camping!

Now--gotta get back to that build list!

Congratulations! How exciting for you. I think that when we pick up out 19, we'll have seen about the same wait. Ordered May 13th. Completion January 2nd. Pick up May 2nd! Enjoy creating your one of a kind Escape!

Congratulations to the both of you. This will be a great fit for what you want to do. Our meeting has been brief up to this time, it was so enjoyable I am hoping we can schedule of "Meeting of the 21's".

I can't for the rest of the members....but I think we all benefit from build sheet ideas.
I'd love to see what you are thinking about doing!

Congratulations! Every day down gets you one day closer.

I'm with Vicki, I like to read about what others are thinking about. I have a gazillion ideas swirling through my mind, it really helps me to hear what others are going to do.

Now that we have officially ordered, I will definitely be asking more questions--just giving everyone fair warning! I've made lots of notes from other discussions, but will be posting more as we get closer to our final build sheet. 256 days--time is flying by!!!

Donna, you are going to end up knowing every possible option, (and not possible options) and be the guru of Escape customization! What a fun resource you are!!

256 days for your 21 ft; we are looking at 304 days for our 19 ft. Must be patient, must not wag tail.

Blame Jim, he started it with all the mods he did to his 19'... most I've got bookmarked! Did you see where Honda is installing vacuum cleaners in the new minivan!?!?! Hey, someone needs to be the first to have a built-in vacuum system in an Escape

I would love the built in vacuum! I am an OCD vacuumer!

And just so we wouldn't get bored during the wait, we purchased a new tow vehicle today! The completion date can't get here soon enough! Now we need to be patient and not spend any more money...

I like that, Jim! Do you have time to get that on the build list before your completion date?

We also placed our order for a 21 yesterday for July 2014 completion date. I'm sure we also will have questions as will complete the build sheet. We live near Erie, Pennsylvania.
