Right before my 52nd birthday. Not soon enough.

Poll so far says 40% of us got our Escape in our 50's. Yay! We win.☺

39 when I put my deposit down, hopefully 40 when I pick it up. Crossing my fingers. Only have a month to drive back and forth from New Jersey.

My husband and I fall in different age brackets. I went with our median age which also happens to be my age bracket.

60.
Went out to the back yard where Les was sitting on the garden swing and said, "I want to buy an Escape" ( we had a tent trailer ). And she said, "sure". Didn't get to use any of my arguments.

I had the same experience. I had a small notebook full of comparisons that never got used.

58 when I ordered it, 59 when I pick it up.

Gerri said "I feel sorry for you having to rebuild the "Bigfoot" every time we want to go camping. We should get a new one" I assumed that meant the cheque was signed. One of the few times its good to "assume".

Age listed on the poll above. I retired and 6 days later arrived @ Chilliwack to begin enjoying our Escape with a 9 week tow home!

Not now Robert , it's tied at 14 each for 50's and 60's. Perhaps we retired guys and gals in our 60's are busy and not checking into the forum too much, I only am today because the weather is not too nice and the Internet for once here is working great!

I was 33 and my husband was 29 two years ago when we found ours. We bought used, it was more budget friendly! Gotta live while we're young
