Out for a drive tonight. Stopped by a county park in an adjacent county where we have camped in the past. 86 campsites 84 camp sites in use. Surprised to see any fiberglass. A 13 Scamp is one thing but to see two fiberglass campers out of 84 is rare in these parts. The second camper, a very shiny 2017 5.0 TA owned by some very nice folks from Iowa City and licensed in Johnson county where F.W.Kent park is located. We talked to them for a few minutes . Had no idea this 21 was within 30 minutes of where we live. Again, as I often say “You never know”.

Passed a 19 near Yellowstone

On Thursday, July 30, traveling NW out of West Yellowstone we spotted a 19 heading towards Yellowstone on Hwy. 287 in Montana. This has been the only one we have seen on our travels to Seattle from St. Louis.


Due to scheduling we did not have time to tour Grand Teton or Yellowstone, but we drove through them. We entered from the South and exited via the West entrance. We had but a few cars at the South entrance but there was a huge line getting into the West entrance. Line went all the way into the town of West Yellowstone and up the street. Avoid that entrance if possible.

Englishman River Falls, BC

When we arrived on Aug.31 two trailers, one of them a classic E21, were occupying the double site right next to ours. Our neighbours, one of them strumming an acoustic guitar, saw our Escape and smilingly made a "there goes the neighbourhood" joke, but our friends from another site arrived while we were setting up, so we decided to meet our neighbours the next morning. The chance never came, as both trailers had pulled out, seemingly soundlessly, before 8 am. Perhaps another time!

Fanny Bay, Vancouver Island, BC

We were in our black Tundra towing our classic E21 north on the Old Island Highway mid-afternoon on Sept. 3 when we passed a southbound Escape 21 right in the heart of downtown Fanny Bay. I didn't catch the details of the tow vehicle. Hope those folks enjoyed the flawless camping weather that we are still enjoying.

I saw an Escape 19 going westbound on I-64 in Virginia in the vicinity of Newport News/Williamsburg this afternoon! It made my day!

On my recent 1200 mile loop through northern california with a detour to nevada, I saw several Escapes, and more than a few Casitas, but I didn't take notes.

Sorry we missed you. We had a two week trip from Victoria to Cape Scott, no reservation. Loved every spot we stayed in. Provincial, private. Regional and forestry sites. Next time we will give ourselves 4 to 6 weeks. The weather was perfect.We saw many Escape trailers.

Shout out to the 15 or 17 (I just caught a glimpse) headed southbound on 101 in Washington, just a bit south of the Quinault Lodge area. We’ve been out for a little over a week now, and this is the first Escape we’ve seen.

Two so far!

I headed west from Asheville NC after the holiday and saw an Escape 17 and a 19, on I40. One was headed east and the other west. Currently in Jackson, WY and no there sightings of Escapes. Have seen several Casitas, a few Scamps, and a Big Foot truck camper. Lots of stickies, but I always keep my eyes peeled for Escapes and other fiberglass campers. Travel On, folks, just be safe! ✌🏼

Yesterday 17Sept about 2pm southbound on the (Vancouver) Island Highway near Cobble Hill.
Escape 17 with a grey Nissan Pathfinder towing it.

They seemed to be hustling ... so probably heading to the ferry.
Only one I've seen on the road in a while...other than a neighbours and ours.

Where have you stayed? I'd like to do that loop with some friends so curious as to what the best campgrounds are.

Escape Sighting: 5.0TA in Hot Springs, AR

Just a little after 11:00AM today, Oct 26th, in Hot Springs, Arkansas, I spotted a 5.0TA pulled by (I believe) a white Ford F-150 heading east on the Hwy 270 Expressway around town. Great to see one so far from home.

Looks like no sighting posts in a while! But here I was playing golf at Pine Forest at Bastrop TX when just off the 10th fairway there’s an Escape! Cool house too!

A Brand new 21. This was his first outing on a just started full-time adventure. We got to tour his trailer and he saw ours! Very nice.

We couldn't believe there was another Escape at the same campground as us in Massachusetts.
