Hi Paul,
Our orientation is Mar 17th, 11 am. for our 21. We are then heading to Bay View St. Park. We plan to be there the 17th and 18th. Stop by if you have time. We also have a black truck.
Chevy, as per your suggestion.

Two in two days.

We arrived at SKP Saguaro Co-Op last Sunday. The Follow me golf cart took us to our site, and there was a 21 parked next door. We met the owners. They have a ginormous fifth wheel they stay in at the park, and they travel with their Escape. That is our plan too as we have gotten on the list here.

So the next day we decide to go hike Ramsey Canyon. We are walking up the trail and get into a conversation with a couple we meet, Ron and Sandy, and realize we are both RVers. So we mention we have a 19' small trailer, they mention they have a 21'. I am thinking, no, not two in two days, but yes, they have a 21' Escape. We had a good laugh. They had been at Quartzsite as we had been, but the turnout was so large this year (we heard 187) we never met them at the rally.

Only one sighting - thanks to Jack

We've been traveling a month and a half and finally got to see an Escape, mind you parked at Jack and Nancy's home (AZJack) here in Tucson Thanks to them for the wonderful hospitality and the chance to see another 21

Well I was planning on posting a pic of the back of their trailer with nearby mountains in the background but can't seem to find it now

Adrian,
How is the little dog handling the warmth? Glad you are enjoying your traveling.

Hi Jim

Patches is doing OK we had to have her clipped in order to have some growths removed on Jan. 4, then we had to walk in our bitter MB cold until we left on the 18th. She would go a few steps then lift her paws giving us a woe is me look! So now we are here in the warmth but she won't walk on the grass (what little there is) because it's dry and probably tickles her feet. We just can't win

I didn't realize until talking with Jack that Dave and Rita bought their 19.

Adrian

Yes Rita did. And I'm takin good care of her with new tires this past week and wheel bearing service and new seals. Only have a couple minor changes to make in the next month or so and we will be ready to roll. We're thinking about hitting the Manitoba Rally. That would make three Canadian camp outs in 2016. Cheap gas and no kids left at home, can't beat it.

On Monday, Feb. 29 my cousin was driving home from central Florida when she saw an "Escape 5th wheel trailer pulled by a white pickup with dual rear wheels." I'm not sure if she saw it on I-75 or I-10, the two interstate highways she would have taken to get back to Milton. I'm wondering if she saw Alf?

Hmm. She said the white truck had "3500" on its side. I was told that both RAM and Chevy have a 3500. But then of course my cousin might have seen some other type of RV entirely; she's not familiar with Escapes (other than the one I have) and it's tricky ID'ing a vehicle you're passing on the highway that you see only for a few seconds.

To clarify. Duallies are two tires and wheels on the end of one axle. Tandem axles are two separate axles which have either one or two tires and wheels on each end of the axle. The park guys knew they were gonna have a long day when they got a flat on the inside dual on the rear tandem axle on a muddy day. A cheater is an additional axle that can be lowered when excessive weight is being hauled. And a Canadian Spread is a moveable trailer axle that can be adjusted forward to better distribute support for a heavy load. I will at times sing the Boy Scout classic There's 18 wheels on a big rig. But I gotta have a lot of beer in me.

Carl,

How do you like the Myakka River State Park? I may try to stay there next February. I couldn't get in last month because all the sites were reserved.

As I was heading back to Seattle today from Oregon, I spotted a 21 footer heading south on I5 at appx 1PM and appx 25 miles south of Chehalis. Pulled by a black (or very dark) SUV (or pickup with canopy, but I don't think so from the brief flash I had of it) and red graphics on the trailer.

(And 25 Toyota FJ Cruisers on the road in both directions during the entire drive home - I always count them when I take a road trip; something to while away the hours. Yeah, I have an FJ.)

That was us in RV Sue's blog. Buenos Aires Natl Wildlife Refuge is our most favorite place to camp. Peaceful, serene, quiet and reminds us of Africa.

I used to tow my 19' with a FJ, other than a little squat in the rear, it handled fine. Then when I got BlackJack I went back to towing with my Ram. So I traded the FJ on my Subaru Forester which gave me cash back as the FJ was worth more than the Subaru. Now, a year later, I'm trading the Subaru for the new Mustang, so in effect, I traded my FJ for the Mustang.??
