Are you sure it wasn't a deer with a student haircut?
We saw one Escape and two casitas in 1775 miles of driving to Niagara and back. All we're in Iowa which was only about 200 miles of the trip. I80 carries a lot of trailer traffic. Still Escapes are uncommon.

We're hanging out at the Rapid City KOA (waiting for our tow to be repaired), and lo and behold, Gary and Betty Ann from BC just showed up 3 spaces away, with their 17B, towed by a classic Mercury.

A 5.0 TA pulled into the Grand Canyon North Rim campground today. The tow is a dark-colored F150 with Washington plates. The trailer looks brand-new and it is beautiful. Hopefully I'll meet the owners tomorrow.

Correction and update: They let us know that they're now in Montana along the I-90 corridor, with their 1957 Monarch Lucerne convertible (Monarch is the Canadian Mercury). It's even got those old-fashioned wide whitewall tires.
they're Canadian Coasters, on the way from the East coast to the West coast.

There is a 5.0 TA with gold trim and Utah plates parked in the Kirtland AFB campground in Albequerque. I think I've seen this trailer before, but I don't remember where. I guess they are here for the upcoming balloon fiesta, as am I, in part. Good thing no balloons are flying now; we're about to get a thunderstorm.

Be sure to do the Mass Ascension and the Evening Glow. Truly awesome.

Thanks. When I first read "Mass Ascension" I thought "I'm a Baptist, I don't know this stuff... waitaminute." Now I get it.

When I read your post, my first thought was, "I'm a Lutheran and I don't know how to spell anymore." Had to check that out right away.

Anyway...just go and be amazed.

I just could not get away from this stinking trailer that was parked next to me. I'd see it when I got up, when I went out sightseeing, fixing dinner and all that. Drove me nuts!

Just kidding! It was planned months ahead of time.

Hi PatandLinda!

From Redding CA last month, where it was stinking hot and just about fried my brain! Ack! Other than that (and the baby rattlesnake!!! ) I vastly enjoyed the get together.

Just returned home from 3k miles between the Olympic Peninsula and Yellowstone without a hint of another Escape. Today as we were 10 miles from home we spotted a 21 near Sequim with light blue graphics being pulled by a gold Jeep Grand Cherokee. Much waving and smiles ensued as we passed in front of them at a light.

We pulled into the North Rim Campground about the same time. Overall, there were five of us Escape owners there over the six nights we spent there. Unfortunately, we only got to meet the folks with the brand new 5.0TA. I would have liked to have met the others but didn't see them around and I don't like to knock on doors. Hope your stay was a nice as ours.

Alberta Escape 21 on Highway 10 in Surrey

I just saw a couple in a dark grey Jeep Grand Cherokee bearing Alberta plates towing an Escape 21 here in Surrey, B.C. They were headed East on highway #10 in the direction of Langley. Twice I was beside them at lights and I couldn't help rolling down my window (toot, toot) to tell them we also have an Escape 21. The thing is, the weather is WICKED right now, with torrential rain and wind whipping the trees around. Some roads are just about flooding and power lines are down from tree branches here and there, one incident causing me to detour on the way home. The Alberta Escape going down the highway in that weather looked like a real adventure. I'm glad our Escape is safely tucked away under a trailer cover beside the house, ready for next year's adventures. We would be traveling to warmer climates right now if it weren't for family responsibilities (elderly mother with constant health crisis).

We saw an Escape 21 coming along the Grand Canyon Highway from Desert View last Wednesday---I waved like crazy but we were in a little rental Corolla...

Also met a couple with a 19 in parking lot in Flagstaff...

We just returned from a week of camping at Old Man's Cave in southern Ohio. Upon pulling in with our 19 we were surprised to see another Escape 19 in the campground. Turned out it was another 19 owner couple from the Cincinnati area with their 2017. Had a great time discussing how happy we were with our purchases and exchanged ideas and future tips for our campers. Not 100% sure but we now think we have met all the 19 owners in the state of Ohio.

We saw an Escape first gen 19 that was being pulled south on I35 through Austin today about 2:20pm. It had Arkansas plates and was being pulled by a brownish colored Ford truck.

After a quick detour to NJ for Christmas, we are heading West for most of the winter to ski in the Tetons (Teton Pass mostly). Wave to us along the way! And for any back country skiers in the group, come visit us in Tetonia and we'll give you a tour of the pass.
