On Sept. 19, at the last toll stop on I-90 in New York headed east, the lady in the toll booth told me that mine was the second trailer like it she had seen that morning. She asked me if we were going to a meeting. I said no, we were returning from one (Niagara Wine Escape). I figured she had seen another fiberglass trailer and not another Escape 21.

I was wrong. Soon afterward I pulled into a service area in Massachusetts and encountered an Escape 21 named "Moondrop". The couple who owned it were from Texas and were headed to Maine, as I was. Moondrop looked just like my trailer, but it was a year newer.

Not long after that I saw an Escape 19 headed south on I-95.

And ours is sitting within a mile of I-95 in Maine. Coincidence? I think not!!

Saw my 1st ever Escape in New England, that wasn't parked in a driveway. Last week at Fisherman's Memorial SP in RI. Saw it one evening but no one was home, too dark to make out much about it. It was gone the next am by the time I walked by.

Kind of cool here too, but there is a lot of looking around in the Banff townsite itself , so that's what we did today ( and the pool of coarse ) . Tomorrow will be better and we can get on with the real stuff .....hope the Grizzlies aren't looking for meat ....it's berry season for them . Drive safe ....

My wife was driving in Brunswick, Maine and saw a 19' being towed by a gray or black Jeep Grand Cherokee from Washington State. They pulled up next to her at a stop light and my wife rolled her window down and told them we owned a 5.0TA.

She unfortunately did not get their life story as I most likely would have tried to, nor their name before they had to part ways. She did say they were very nice! Exciting for both of us, as that is a complete rarity to be able to speak with traveling owners!

I hope if it's anyone on the forum, you have great here in Maine and safe travels!!

Escape 5.0TA and 19 on a "flatbed" being pulled by a dually pickup headed east on I-80 at 2:45 p.m. in Laramie, Wyoming. Someone's delivery day is getting closer.

We are well on our way on our trip from Santa Cruz CA to New England. My wife got a glimpse of an Escape at Mt Rushmore on Sept. 18. Today we traveled south from Rivičre-du-loup, Quebec to St Johns, New Brunswick. Again my wife spotted an Escape with red graphics headed north. I only saw it in the rear view mirror. Perhaps it was the same that Nathan's wife saw in Maine. We plan to spend two nights on the Bay of Fundy and head for Acadia in Maine. Hope to see more of you as we go.

21' Delivery East of The Mississippi?

Today, Thurs. 10/6, at about 2:15 pm, we saw a brand new 21 east on I-80 near the 55 interchange south of Chicago. Being pulled by what looked to be a delivery driver in a gray Ford 1-ton. The 21 had a temporary paper plate on the back. Anybody expecting a delivery will get a sharp looking rig, freshly washed by a northern Illinois cloudburst. It was pouring about that time!

Just saw a brand new 5.0 pulled by a truck with Texas tags at Mission and Hamilton in Spokane - nice looking rig! We rolled down our window at a stoplight and were told they had just picked the trailer up and then the light changed...

We passed it going north through Oak Harbour. We were heading south to Port Townsend with our 17.

Deb and I were east on I-80 today at 12:00 noon and spotted an Escape at the RV Hall of Fame Museum in Elkhart, Indiana. Not sure if it was a 19 or 21, but we think it was there to arrange for induction, once it has been retired for 5 years, of course.

HappyCampers: "We saw an Escape 5.0TA with red graphics at Heartland RV and Campground just south of Hermosa SD this morning."
That was us at Heartland RV and Campground,9-20,21,22.We have been away from the forum, busy with the new 5.0TA traveling. Departed San Marcos, CA, 8-9, orientation and acceptance of the new Escape 8-19, Banff for 3days, 3 days in Whistler near Jasper (just a parking spot and our solar panel), 6 days in Edmonton, AB, area for family reunion, 6-7 days in Winnipeg, MB, more family, 6 days in Minnesota visiting my sister in Hastings. Then it was heading for home via Badlands, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, & Custer Park (stayed at Heartland). Don't head into or out of Denver on Friday or Sunday! 47 miles out the traffic was bumper to bumper. First time in 14 yrs of RVing, stayed at a Walmart, Golden, CO. On to Arches National Park, Zion National Park, a stop in the Las Vegas area for quick visit with a son and wife and then the last 6-7 hours to home on 9-28. 7,094 total miles, 5,649 on the new trailer. Increase of 5 - 6 mpg with the 2012 RAM 1500 pulling the 5.0 vs the old Forest River 27 ft Travel trailer (7-8,000 lbs). Andersen Hitch worked great and easy. The Escape 5.0TA was great, hardly knew it was behind us, U-turns were a snap! It has been washed, off to DMV for an inspection and permanent license plate and ready to go again. This was our most scenic trip, 51 days with only 5 days without the sun.

Like Two Ships Passing In the Day!

We were E\B on Hwy. 20 in Duanesburg, NY at 12 noon on Tuesday, Oct. 11 and a 5.0 TA was W/B. Our first view of a 5.0 outside of Chilliwack. Good looking rig being pulled by a dark gray Ford P/U.

Steve, that was us in Chicago and at the RV Hall of Fame. We were on our way home. Left home on 9/6/16 and got home 10/7/16. 31 days, 7445 miles, and 158 hrs of seat time. We had a great trip and we love our new Escape. Other than Steve's 21 we saw two 17's, two 19's, and 5er.

Whew! You certainly wore me out with 7K+ miles! What a fabulous trip. Glad the new Escaping went so well.
