Hi I'm Steve

I have done a little browsing around and gotten some good info from this group. So, I've joined. Presently I don't own an RV but am seriously considering a Casita 17.' My wife is less camping orientated than I but hopefully she'll like the little egg, should we get it. We did have a conventional travel trailer about 15 years ago and we both enjoyed it, it was 17' 10" Prowler, Little Kitten. We used it for about 5 years and then sold it because of a job change with little vacation time available. Now with retirement we do once again have time. We plan on going numerous places on short trips, anywhere from a week to three weeks. Eventually I'd like to go up to Alaska for a two month trip. I would say the bed in are previous trailer was a little small but we never bothered to set up the dinette as a second bed. With the Casita we may, and are 60 pound dog will travel with us. The Casita will be smaller, a bit shorter, not nearly as wide or as tall. We have seen numerous Casitas at a rally we recently attended. We also really like the 19' Escape, but the budget dictates a used 17' model. I've got some questions, but I'll post them separately.

Welcome, Steve!
There are used 17' Escapes around from time to time and it is certainly a very nice trailer. I assume you have looked on the Escape forum sales and also the Escape Industries site as they sell used ones once in a great while. You can definitely get one without too much wait if that's what you want.

17' Escape

Hi Cathy: First congratulations on getting the 19' model. As I recall the width of the bed in the 17' Escape is only about 48" whereas the Casita is a good bit wider. Also the Casita has a bigger bath area. Lastly, I think I should be able to get a better deal on a Casita because there are many more around to choose from. Certainly interested in hearing your thoughts.

to the Forum Steve.
As you already know, there is tons of information from the
members on these boards. I lurked for some time and then
joined, and with all the information I gathered was able to
pick out the one suited for me. Good luck on your search.
