Hello from Central Oregon!

Just registered on the site and wanted to say hello. I live in Bend, Oregon with my wife and two young sons. We do a lot of road trips and overnights to bike races, etc.

I recently sold my '86 VW Westy (miss it already, but it was way too cramped) and I am currently leaning toward a trailer in the 18'-21' range.

We are looking at R-Pods and the Escape 19 or 21. We are close enough to BC to consider buying from our neighbors up there.

Any advice, input, suggestions, etc. would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Jeff in Bend from Donna D. in Portland, Oregon.

I own an Escape built trailer and love it! So... without sounding snarky, I think the R-Pod and the Escape are in opposite ends of build quality.

How old are your boys?

Thanks Borrego Dave and Donna D.! I will be towing with my 2014 Ram 1500 Hemi 4x4. It has the trailer package and a 3.92 axle so I should be good to go. Jeff

Oops, sorry Donna D.- my little guys are 9 and 11 now. I won't give up my wife's age though (I'm better trained than that!).

Thanks Roger. I checked out both sites, the one in Bend has no info just a face page. Do you know if there is info anywhere else? Jeff

Hi Jeff, I don't know if you would be interested but I have a new 2014 Casita you can look at if you want. Send me a PM, I'm in Redmond so it would be a short trip. We checked out most of the FG trailers and settled on the Casita.

Good travels, Larry
