Yes my Rav4 has 4 wheel drive. I am lucky to have an Escape on order! Due to hatch end of next Sept. I am planning and gathering info ahead. Watching weather this year for pickup next year at this time. Which way to come home without snow in mountains.
Return home in Oct and then leave again for the winter. I don't want to be gone 6 months. I have never left my home for that long and not in the winter. Maybe I could leave in Dec and come back in March. Will have to watch when roads get snow packed and then when the snow melts enough to get home. Many things to think about and all of you have given me lots of info to comtemplate. Much to research, storage near the HWY or have my plow guy pull the trailer into town past the big hills.
SD, you had snow already this year? We have had frost but no snow yet. Are you heading to Fl for the winter? FL and AZ sound wonderful.
I'm 32 miles from Ironwood MI and 32 miles from Minocqua WI in the middle of the woods in the snow belt in Gods country.
ETI just had a 21 new that sold in 2 hrs.... maybe one will be cancelled. ETI is expanding so maybe the production schedule will speed up.
I am getting the Escape with foam spray, double pane windows
and extra insulation plus solar
and dual six volts and inverter/transfer switch so I should be all set.
Driving steep snow packed hills is what made me nervous.... will I make it up the hill or will the trailer pass my car on the way down the hill. Once I make it past those hills it flattens out. No other road out.
Thanks to all, I appreciate all the info... keep it coming.
