While our trailer is being built, each week, Escape Trailer Industries sends some photos of it. It's very exciting. Here are our week 1 photos.
When you order an Escape trailer, you receive a list of the standard equipment for the trailer model and a list of the optional equipment. Yes, they build them to order and if you don't see what you want on the list, ask and they will probably add it to the build.
We decided to name our new Escape 19 trailer "Blanquillo." This is Spanish for "little white thing." We originally thought about naming it "huevo nuevo" as I like the alliteration, but I found that "huevo" means "egg" but also is often used for "ball" as in testicle.
In September, 2014, we took a trip to Colorado, Utah, and Nevada. The first 2 weeks were in Colorado as part of a church mission trip and we stayed in an RV park. Nothing exciting, mostly full timers. We greatly enjoyed 2 days in Rocky Mountain National Park.
I started camping with my parents first in a tent then in a 1958 Tour-a-home stick built Trailer (a trailer made with a wood frame covered with aluminum sheet). The Tour-a-home was a park model, that is, it was built only for connecting to utilities in an RV park.
While waiting for our new Escape 19 trailer, which we have named "Blanquillo" for little white thing, I have been researching information on it and similar trailers. It has several features we haven't had before and a lot of features we have had.
