I just wanted to thank this forum and all of you here who provided me so much information I requested over about a year and half in ordering our new trailer. Your assistance was truly invaluable to me! Thanks.

Of course we are currently sheltered in our home honoring the current quarantine and, while it is killing me to just sit here and look at our trailer just sitting in our driveway, I do look forward to the coming years of travel that we are hoping begin once the quarantine is lifted.

So thanks to you all for all your assistance in our decision to buy a new Escape 19! :
Congrats on your new E19! And from one NorCal Escaper to another, welcome! Impressed you were able to do that whole trip in just 4 days. Wow. We felt the same as you last year, so grateful for the all the help and 'invaluable' support here on this forum. Wishing you many happy days ahead in your E19 ...hopefully sooner than later. Best, Bea

Unhappy Pickup??

Well, we've been waiting for our 21 since it was finished Nov 1..Had a 5-6 week trip planned out via AirBnBs and weeks back, camping our way home to TN at about 18 different sites in NPs and SPs.. Now all is closed down and who knows.. ?

I was told by Escape when I picked mine up in June of 2018 that it had been waxed.

Congrats on getting your E19 home, safe, sound and secure. This certainly is a weird time in our respective lives, but we'll all endure and get through this.

Now go wash your hands and be happy...;-)

They said they could not do it with as they have a skeleton staff and could not accommodate it.

Congrats on your new hotelroomonwheels. No need to wait to start enjoying it if it’s sitting in your driveway. Get out there and spend some nights in it! Use all of those systems until you feel comfy with how everything works. Turn the fridge on, fill it with food. Sleep in there then cook some breakfast! Use the water system to do dishes. Use the loo. All of this will do three things: get you familiar with everything, make sure everything works, and get you some fun times using your new toy, even if it’s in the driveway. Have yourself a Staycation

We picked our E19 up on the 20th. I think they may be a lockdown? It wouldn’t be considered an essential business and its hard to build trailers from home!

We picked up 3/23 and had to reroute based on covid. Stayed in several passport America and other private campgrounds in smaller areas, not big metro areas. No problem getting fuel or fast food or groceries. Lots of hand washing and purell after filling up. We drove an average of 500 miles a day, through a snow storm in Bryce Canyon but mainly interstate hwys. It was a tough trip but we are ready to camp when covid goes away.

We picked up our 19 on April 3d, completed in Dec. as well. Snow in Chilliwack, caught the last ferry to Vancouver Island on the Horseshoe bay to Departure bay route before it closed.
Trailer has a strong fiber glass or glue smell inside...hope this goes away over time.

The Nanaimo to Tsawwassen will still be running if you want to get back. Easier on traffic as you don't have to go through North Vancouver.

Ready to camp is all I can think about. I have to be patient until this virus thing settles down. Hoping for Late Spring, but we'll see. Be safe!

My trailer sat finished at Escape for several months. I have no smells. I'm sure it will go away in yours. Congrats and be safe. We'll be camping before you know it, I hope.

We didn't use a ferry. We went east to cross the border, but thanks.

Anticipating this problem with our last RV purchase, we had it parked for a while with the roof vent open and its fan running, plugged into shore power to avoid running down the battery, before we took delivery. This sort of airing out does help accelerate the dissipation of fumes.

I bet that will do it for you, given enough time. It's just a little off-gassing from all the fiberglass, I think.

Good luck.

I talked Escape today April 8th and I’m picking up our 5.0 TA fifth wheel on April 21 as previously arranged. The only thing they are not doing is the orientation. They have an orientation video on U-Tube.

That's basically what we did. Worked fine. I had to make a couple of phone calls with questions and I did communicate with the service department by email and phone. All worked put fine. I have no outstanding issues. Great service!
