Recommended Posts

We paid our deposit on an Elite II and will be looking for guidance on completing the build sheet by June. We own an Escape 19 which we purchased in 2017 so we are advanced beginners. The Escape we plan to keep at home in Alaska for summer use. The Oliver, delivery date in September, will remain in the lower 48 with its tow vehicle. Looking forward to these forum discussions.

Welcome to the forum.  

My husband and I have camped a lot in Alaska, four trips. We loved the experiences. 

Please ask away with your questions.  We're all here to help.

What kind of camping do you like to do?  FHU?  No hook ups?  National and State Parks?  You will get lots of advice on this forum!

Alaska is on our list, we’ve done all but 5 of the lower 48.  We lived in Hawaii for years so…

Welcome to the group.  Escape makes a nice trailer.  Mike

We have lived near Wasilla for over 18 years and it is our permanent residence. We have been trailer camping there since 2017 and have spent about 180 nights in our Escape 19 all in Alaska. We have only spent one night in a site with partial hookups. Our typical trip is about 2 weeks and we tend to stay in one place. Our two favorite places in Alaska are the BLM campground at Tangle Lakes on the Denali Highway and the Valdez Glacier Campground which is operated by Fort Greeley for the City of Valdez. We typically have a purpose in mind for our trips such as fishing, berry picking or hunting.  The uses of the new Oliver will be similar as we like to find a good place and stay there. The Creelake handle is based on past life, have not been to Sask in over a decade. We will not be leaving Alaska during the summer months at all if possible. So the Oliver will be stored with a friend (who owns an Escape 21 and a Scamp) in Colorado for use in the lower 48. We are westerners at heart with roots around Walden, Colorado. We are interested more in the off grid places such as we have found in Wyoming, Nevada, and eastern Oregon and the like.
