We enjoyed meeting and chatting with you about our great little trailers. Our only regret is that we didn't have more time to chat. We look forward to our paths crossing again and please give a shout if you ever find yourself up in the PNW. We know of several local brew pubs to raise a pint, cheers!

Saw our first Escape on the road! It was a 5,0 heading south on I5 approaching Sacramento around 9am. Didn't get a look at the tug. Still very exciting to see. Won't be long now before we see our 21!

It's such a thrill to see Escapes on the road! I never tire of looking for and identifying fiberglass trailers. How exciting for you as you near your pickup day!

A 21 pulled by a white truck heading up Yew Street Road in Bellingham at 5:20 p.m. today. I was so startled I didn't get a good look at the graphics but think they were gray.

Re 10-17-15 Sighting Approaching Sacramento

Jill, you caught us on our last day headed home after picking up our 5.0 in Chilliwack on 10-7. We had overnighted in Williams. Our 5.0 is wonderful. Bought sight unseen. Still getting used to all the room after our 19' truck camper of 12 years. Here is my much better half showing off our rig on our last day at NAS Whidbey Island in Washington. Cliff and Betty

Hi: JMTHKR... WELCOME to our world of Escapes. It takes fore site to buy sight unseen. We owned a 5.0 Classic for 6 yrs. and ordered a 5.0TA unseen. Had many calls to Reace about it before the molds were cast and even he didn't know at the time how it would work... but it does so beautifully.
Here's a pic of us leaving the nest in Chilliwack. Alf

So I'm over at my storage unit and what do I see? An Escape 21 in one of the RV sites. Got to meet Duke and Beverlee (sandypas) who are here to celebrate Veterans Day. Duke is getting a memorial paver dedicated at the Anthem, AZ Veterans Memorial to honor his service in the Army. Thanks for your service, Duke...

Great couple, got to spend about 30 minutes chatting, and will probably see them at the Veterans celebration this week. Their 21 sure looks sweet!

Saw a 17' with bikes on the back going around the loop at Maryhill State Park in Washington the early evening of Friday 11/6. I was with family so didn't go chasing after it hoping to find it the next morning. Dang it, they moved on before I got going.

Saw my first Escape -- Going north on I-5, south of Sacramento, CA. Couldn't tell size but was pulled by a reddish-burgandyish truck. Exciting!

Edith and I had pretty much settled on an RPOD until we strolled through Fort Casey State Park (Whidbey Island in Washington State) one summer day last year. But that is when we came upon a 17b, and we thought, this is for us! Ours will be ready in February. We had not seen another Escape (not counting our visit to the Chilliwack manufacturing site) until last Sunday (29 November).

We saw a 5.0 crossing Deception Pass bridge, on the north end of Whidbey Island in NW Washington State. I've heard it said this beautiful spot is the most photographed site in all of Washington State...a very fitting place to see an Escape!

That's funny - can't make much more of a quantum leap in choosing a trailer style!

I always thought the Rpods and the Escapes were not all that different, for a sticky anyway.

When I was on my month-long RV trip earlier this spring, I knew it was too big for me, but I got to experience the lifestyle at least. While I was in Coos Bay OR we went by a dealer with a bunch of R-Pods. We stopped in and fell in love with 'em. Talked to owners of two that were at my campground and they really liked 'em.

I wasn't too keen on how the bed wasn't long enough for me and I'd have to sleep sideways, but figured I could live with that. We went back to the dealer multiple times and each time they had less of 'em as they were getting sold. Joined a forum for 'em when I got home and then I started reading all the problems folks were having with theirs. Oh yeah, time to look elsewhere.

Point being - it got me thinking smaller than what I had been seeing at the RV shows and dealer lots and for that it was worth all the initial excitement I had when I first looked at them. My dad suggested fiberglass trailers as he had taken a tour at the Scamp factory and liked what he saw. and here I am!

So, now when I see an R-Pod on the road I think "suckers" and get all excited when I see an Escape on the road and think "I'm gonna be there one day!".
