Escape

In an I-10 rest area near Biloxi, MS an elderly lady pulled in right next to us. She was towing an Escape 17 with a Jeep Wrangler. She is with an RV caravan going all over the place. She/they have already been to Mexico and are heading up the east coast. She's from British Columbia. We traded looks into each other's trailer. Never saw an Escape before. Very nice but we'll keep our EggCamper.

Good for her! Glad she's out traveling instead of at home sitting in a rocker wishin'! It doesn't matter what brand of molded trailer you're towing. It's in the doin' that sure beats the not doin' every.. single.. time.

I agree with Donna D. In an area where the fastest growing population are people 80+, I just keep telling myself that I cannot end up like them, an old lady with a cat or 12 cats worse yet. It has nothing to do so much with "cats" since I do like them but as partners for conversation, they are lacking. I worked in an office of an RV maker and a man in his early 80's came in to order a unit (we did custom) because he was a retired contractor and wanted to travel, fixing up churches and in exchange he would get a free site. His children contacted the owner of the business more than once telling him not to sell a unit to the older man. The owner, a 70 year old man, worked with the older man to get the least amount of size for his needs and one day, the man came and took to the road. We heard from him from time to time and only once was there a problem where he sort of stuck his slide into an embankment but they talked him through it. Sadly, I remember my Grandma talking about how much she always wanted to travel but did not get the chance so I have already did some traveling in her memory but I bet she would want to go a lot more places! I greatly enjoy the company of much older folk because I have learned so much from them in every way possible.

The trailer is made in chilliwack BC. They have 15 to 17 foot in tow behind and 5th wheel to around 21 foot. They start around 15 thousand

This weekend I brought my ParkLiner back to its "home" at my parents(I live in a townhouse/rowhome and way too many kids and too few parking, my parents live 15 minutes from me) My mom was looking it over and I remember 20 years ago my mom tried convincing my dad to get a camper (granted she wanted the one with slide outs to make it like a house) and the only time he ever put his foot down and said no. I told him, after towing my homebuilt gypsy vardo 3900 miles last year, and towing the ParkLiner maybe 350 miles so far that it really isn't so bad. My mom said enjoy it and make the memories and I plan on it. I wanna be the little old guy still out on adventure when I get old!

Escape suffers from the usual 2footitis... They have 13, 15, 17, 19, and 21 in tow-behind (though the 13 is a special order). They also have a 5th wheel that is 19' long.

They'll also probably have some of my money within the next year...
