Smile My new Escape 19

Just got it home to Michigan a couple of days ago. My son and I drove 2900 miles to Sumas to get it, We then went to the Olympic peninsula, Oregon, Idaho, Yellowstone and the Tetons before coming home. We towed it 3900 miles to get back home, total of 6808 miles. The Escape was wonderful. Towed well, everything worked, is so well put together, and has more storage space than I think I'll ever use. It was worth the wait. I'll be excited to take it to the rally in MI in September to show it off. Never see any of them in this part of the country though there was a 21 and a 5th wheel at the last MI rally.

Bob, congrats on the new Escape. We know you will really enjoy your new rig.
Almost as much as spending the time and adventure with your son.

Congratulations Bob

We picked up our new Escape 19 at the end of May. I agree with every comment you made, build quality is exceptional, tows great, the layout is perfect for us and the storage is huge. We head out tomorrow on our 3rd trip, 14 days camping out of the last 30 .... I like that ratio

Sweet. I have thus far successfully thwarted the onset of "3 footitis" with the occasional dose of Scamp-camping but would love an Escape 19 for "long-timing" when I retire. So y'all buy these up and take good care of them and sell me a nice used one in 8-10 years.

Congratulations Bob. We love everything about our 19, and I'm sure you will love yours too. For us it's a perfect blend of size, weight, room and features. We get to have our cake and eat it too!

Bob glad to hear you had a great trip back with a great trailer. We had thought about the MI rally this year only a week after we'll be at Alf's at Niagara but instead going to the first Mississipi rally same time as Algonac.

Robert. Sure you are enjoying your 19 now but see in 8-10 years you could have 4 foot itus and want the Escape 23 and so sell the 19 to Tim. No doubt that great F150 will still be going strong!

If I ever get an "itis" it will be a terrible case of "5.0TA-itis" Adrian. Now that's one fine unit.

Bob I'm so happy for you! I'm almost never jealous but have to admit that I got a little green around the gills hearing about your return trip - I want to go to each of those places as well. Here's wishing you many happy, healthy, fun days!
