Tech Specs

The NEW Trailer and Tow:

Named 'en Plein Aire': 2016 Escape 19
Of course, it will be another Escape!  This time the 19' and I went with all the bells and whistles!  AC, microwave, electric jack, solar, and the list goes on.  So easy with a custom built trailer to just keep adding 'one more thing'.

The New Tow: 2016 redesigned Honda Pilot EXL-navi

The First Trailer: 2006 - 2015
The 'Greyt Escape':  2006 Escape 17B Molded Fiberglass Trailer and 2005 Honda Pilot EX-L,
I traveled over 28,000 miles with this trailer.  I started out spending long weekends in full service campgrounds close to home and ended up spending up to 4 months at a time (95% dry camping) in the southwest.
Solar Setup:  85 Watt Mono-crystalline Panel (standalone or roof-mounted on tow vehicle, with 7-pin plug-in to the trailer); 10 amp power controller/regulator; 1 12v Interstate Deep-Cycle Battery, Group 27 and 1 12v 95 amp hr Interstate AGM battery (in the back of the tow vehicle).

The Greyt Escape kept me safe and comfy for over 400 nights of camping.

For more information on the Escape Trailer, see the manufacturer at  Escape Trailers, Chilliwack, BC

Current Solar Setup:

150w panel mounted on the top of the trailer; 2 6v Golf cart type batteries on the trailer

Plus, for when I'm camping in the grey forested PNW, I still have my old 85 Watt Panel and the 12v 95 amp hr AGM battery (in the back of the tow vehicle) for a little extra power.


Verizon Samsung Galaxy S6 Smartphone with Mobile HotSpot; plus a Verizon MIFI,

Rainy Day Entertainment:

Jack HD roof-mounted TV antenna

  1. Hi Anne. You and I met about a year ago when I toured your trailer with Donna and Kathie. I have been following your blog. I just bought a Honda Pilot and wanted to check in with you regarding how it is going as a tow vehicle.

    Very jealous you are in warmer weather.
