Successful Escape Shopper!

So glad I was up early this morning because I am now the happy new owner of one of the used Escape 17B's that Reace listed on the Classifieds today. Yippee!
Now I want to thank everyone on this forum for educating me about Escapes and about how quickly I needed to pounce. I've been lurking here for quite awhile
Special thanks to Jim, Jon V. and Sam in Redmond, OR who so graciously and proudly showed me his beautiful 2010 17B.
I can't believe my good fortune...I was becoming fearful that I might be forced to purchase a Casita.
Thanks, everyone!
