And another with 7K+! Amazing you could manage all of that! Sounds as if Escape is doing as well as ever with the trailers.

Smile Any Idea who this is ? Spotted it at Drakes Island, Wells, ME

Our 5.0 has been ordered and we were excited to tell our nephew about these custom made rarely seen trailers... They went to the beach a 1/2 min from our home and see this... They asked "Is this like the one you ordered"? They obviously took picture of it.

Escapes at Casitas

Since we live close by, we dropped in for the morning to visit the Casita Rally at Lake Casitas. Lo and behold, first thing we saw after the front entrance was this: An Escape 21. There were perhaps a dozen or more, including Kkinna's freshly painted 15 and a new style 19.
For those of you there, your 80° days are leaving; we hit a fog bank on the coast at Ventura right after lunch.

It has to be indeed very rare to see a 5.0 or just about any Escape up there, as it is here. Congrats on your order and send us your own photo later!

I just got back from Iowa after being gone a month so this is an old report. Spotted an Escape 21 with red graphics headed north on US 63, north of Denver Iowa. It was being towed by a dark tow vehicle, couldn't tell if a suv or pickup. Anyway, this was the Monday following the rally at Eldridge , Iowa, so somebody was heading home. Anyone we know? Loren

We followed an Escape 5.0 going south on CA 12 from Santa Rosa to Sonoma. It had BC plates. We wondered if they were heading south.

Just picked up our new 5.0 TA Nov 8th. On the way home in Washington, at a rest stop, I looked in my side mirror, as I was about to pull out, & saw an Escape behind us on the other side of the road. Puzzled? How could I be seeing our trailer back there like that? Then is dawned on me that it was a "cousin" Escape, not us. As a watched, the door of the tow vehicle opened, & a man lept out, running toward us. We jumped out & met him half way. His wife followed him. Jim & Cheryl, heading for snow bird country, from Kamloops, BC (Forum handle Escapisms). Lovely couple! How's that for an Escape sighting?

Watching Mad Max Fury Road and I've not seen an Escape yet, or any sign of a plot.

Keys

DH and I were driving south on Route 1 in the Florida Keys on/about Dec. 16, and we barely caught an Escape out of the corners of our eyes. -We were looking for a nice beach to pull over for a picnic, so we didn't get a good look at any other identifying marks. It was around 2 pm, in Marathon.
We ARE seeing all of those monster RV's with all of the slide outs, however
Cheers! Artlady

No plot but sure is plenty of action. It's the kinda movie you can watch and don't have to really pay much attention too. I thought it was entertaining though.

I watched it at home in 3D, action indeed! Felt a little tired when it was over... No Escapes in the movie, just like there are no Escapes on the move here in the Shuswap. With snow covering my 19, it takes on a dystopian kind of atmosphere out there too!

Never heard of Shuswap before but you peaked my interest. The place is absolutely beautiful. Nature at it's finest.

Hope to check out the area in person when I make the long trek from Houston, TX to Chilliwack to pick up my trailer this summer. Heck, what's another 3 hours. Stay warm, if you can.

About to leave Ralph's in Los Osos when around the corner comes CraigJ pulling his 5.0&TA with a 1998(modified) Ford Ranger! Definitely had to talk with him, but had to get in line as another couple in a new Chevy Canyon pulled in behind him to check it out.
