Hello from Central Texas

Hi, My name is Frank and I live in the Highland Lakes area of central Texas.
Joined this forum recently but I've kept an eye on it for more than two years.
Great people here and "lots" of great info.
I recently upgraded my truck and plan to change my TT (Casita 17 FD) to something larger, 21' or 23.5' sometime in '17. Don't get me wrong, I love my Casita but need a bit more room and an Escape or Oliver will do that.
Keep up the great work on these really informative posts and I of course will keep reading and post once in a while.
Thanks so much folks and hope to talk with a lot of you here on this forum in the future !!

Frank

If you're considering a 2017 Escape 21 - the production schedule is already filled up to the last week in October.

Your 2500 could easily handle that weight; don't know about a bigger Oliver.

Hello Charlie, Thanks for the info. Fortunately (or unfortunately) I'm aware of Escapes build schedule. As we all know, used models are not on the market very long. Having ooed and awed over a 21' 2017 model I walked thru about a month ago, it would be hard for me to justify anything else. Had I not experienced that walkthrough tho, I'd be much easier to please. HaHa... Easy for me to say, huh ? Thanks Charlie

There's not a fiberglass trailer being built that could not be handled by a 2500.

Good morning Steve, Absolutely... Actually I traded my Sierra 1500 for this one because I needed it for other uses besides my TT. Just like your truck, no problemo !!! Actually I find it kinda nice to know that I can pack my truck "full" of all my "stuff" and never worry about how much extra water, kayak, generator etc I carry.
Take care buddy and see ya down the road.

Frank

Howdy Frank, If you put a lightweight box on the rear end of your Casita you could pack it full of all your camping gear. This would give you more room and maybe you could make do with the 17 foot? Big Foots are heavy because they are Four Season. Olivers are expensive. Escapes are hard to find and expensive too. Just a thought.
