Hello! In case there are any more Seattle/Tacoma/Olympia area folks who are interested in seeing the new Escape 5.0, I'm passing along this message from Ian and Paddy, who very kindly agreed to meet us so we can have a look. We're planning to meet them on Saturday, January 20th at the Maytown Rest Area. It's just south of Tumwater on I-5 South at mile post 93.

Maureen


Happy New Year Maureen and Christopher:

We will be departing Port Angeles on Sat. Jan.20. We should be in the
Maytown Area between 1:00 and 2:00 PM. We would be happy to stop at
the Maytown Rest area. Our destination is Champoeg State Park just south of Oregon where we will meet with Donna D. So we do not plan a long days drive. If you wish to let others in your area know about us coming through please feel free to pass the information along. If you wish to send me your phone number we can give you a call as we get close to Maytown.

All the best, Ian Paddy, Gypsy and Rubea II.

Hello to you all again:

Rubea II is home, and being packed for her maiden trip to fun in the sun. Her trip home was exciting as we faced yet another snow storm, slushy highways and a snow filled driveway.

Today was spent loading the essentials and we found lots of nooks and crannies to stuff things into. Tomorrow our personal items get stored and Friday morning sees us on the road to Victoria and over to Port Angeles where we will spend our first night at Rainbow's End Rv Park in Sequim.

We are then off to Champoeg State Park, just south of Portland, Oregon. Sunday and Monday will see us at Mike and Nancy's in Glide. On Tuesday will will make a brief stop in Grants Pass and make our overnight somewhere in northern California. Wednesday should see us in The Bakersfield area and if all goes well, we will be in Desert Hot Springs on Thursday Jan. 25.

I would like to include a photo or two on this site but have not quite figuered out how to do it. If any one would like to enlighten me on the topic of photos on this site please feel free to send me a message.

Happy trails, Ian, Paddy, Gypsy and Rubea II

Thank you Donna: The first picture is Rubea II leaving the Escape yards with Ian, Paddy and Gypsy.

The second picture is Rubea II's back end. We hope all that see her will give her a gentle pat and wish her "happy trails".

I will read the tutorials Donna sent me and with some luck (certainlynot skill)you will more pics of Rubea II on the highways and bi-ways.

Happy Trails to you all, Ian, Paddy, Gypsy and Rubea II

I've been watching the developement of the 5.0 with much interest and Reace and group have been sending me photos of the "hatching" process. Today is the day, I'm going to be meeting with Ian and Paddy and will get a first-hand look at the trailer - I'm excited.... . I'll be taking photos (to show my wife - she couldn't sneak out of work like I can) and also to post on this site. One thing I did notice on the photo on the home page is the clearance this trailer has - no more dragging the back bumper when getting on and off the ferry..

Attached are some photos of the first 5.0 - (couldn't get them to load will go through the moderator). I visited with Ian and Paddy before they boarded the Coho (ferry from Victoria to Port Angeles). They are great people and love to show off their trailer. One impressive feature was the bed over the 5th wheel, lots of room and Paddy says she can sit up and read without banging her head. Ian and Paddy have upgraded in areas that show they are seasoned travelers: had stainless steel installed around the cooking area, upgraded some of the lights, intalled a 12v tv/dvd player which Ian says ties into the entertainment system that gives great sound. Converted the tall wardrobe closet into a pantry and the storage pantry into a hanging closet - they now have lots of space for hanging clothes. I also liked the electric jacks and the outside lights on the back, sides and up against the 5th wheel assembly. After a really close look, I can say construction and fitting out of this unit if first rate. On the downside, getting into the u-shaped dinette is going to be tough, but that could easily be fixed by having a drop leaf table manufactured.

Hello Neil:Thanks for the great comments. Our only concern to date (and it is small) is access around the table. Drop leaf may be a good solution but we will be giving it lots of thought. The east/west slide on the table does help but a two way slide would be even better. It may not be 100% but Paddy and I will rate it at 99%+ as on our first night.
Back to you later. A pleassure to meet someone else who "dares to be cozy".

Ian, Paddy, gypsy and Rubea II
