    Hi Walt, I'm planning to come to the rally without camper, as I'm currently in the market and deciding what I want. Is there a website with more information about events/schedules?

    Walt,
    Do you have a list of who is coming to the rally and what site they will be on?

    Hi Walt,
    We're going to be getting an Escape. I originally wanted a 17B since that is still compact, and has a bigger bed and holding tanks for boon-docking, and what appears to be a more comfortable dinette than our side dinette Scamp.
    Searching for ideas on the Escape forum, I see a lot of people that had a 17B but moved up to a 19. About half still have their 17B and seem happy with it.
    What are your thoughts on the comfort of the 17B for just two people, no pets. Do you ever wish you had a camper a little bit bigger than the 17B?
    We would probably be getting the mattress in the back and maybe having Escape make the passenger side bench longer like the bench on the 19.
    How do you find the storage space on the 17B? Are the passenger side under seat bins pretty empty and usable?
    Which windows did you get, and are you happy with them?
    Do you feel a need for a weight distribution hitch?

    Hope you are holding up well during this Coronavirus.

    Hey Walt.
    It's Brad Kay. I was lurking around and came across a post you made to someone and thought I would butt in. Been wondering how you have been doing through all this Covid mess. Hope you are well and continue to stay that way. Rosalind and I have been hunkered down in Marietta for a while. Hope to become mobile again soon. No issues with Covid thus far and do not anticipate any. we are well. Was suppose to be at the Townsend rally this week but decided it may be best to not go on the road quite yet.
    Hang tuff and play safe.

    Brad

    WaltP,
    noticed you had both a Bigfoot and a Escape. My wife and I are debating between those 2 and an Oliver for traveling to Texas from Northern Virginia a couple times a year to avoid the cold. We originally were looking at a Casita Independence 17' but it seemed a bit small.

    We have also read that the Bigfoot, Escape and Oliver are warmer. Have you everwritten a comparative (camparative?) evaluation from your personal point of view that we could read.

    We noticed that your signature says SW Virginia. I went to Virgnia Tech in the 60's thru 72 to get my now retired civil engineering degree.

    Walk in His Peace,
    Scribe With a Stylus

    I am a new owner of a used Casita 16' camper. l live in WNC and would be quite interested in the Hungry Mother rally in the end of October. Please keep me posted. Thanks.

    I've had the 21 since August 17th. Been hanging around the northwest until Arizona cools off. I'm slowly heading that way now...

    I believe the SAE connector that Zamp uses is rated at 15 amps. I used it with a 160 watt panel that hits 8.5 amps on a good day, and it held up OK. I had more of a problem with it loosening up after many plug & unplugging. I crimped it with a pair of pliers, and it was still going when I sold the trailer.

    I'd love to find a 25 - 30 amp, high quality waterproof 12V connector that includes a panel mount version, but as yet, haven't found one.
