Q: What the hell happened to the View?
A: In our prior episodes, we traveled in a Winnebago View. In the continuing quest for the perfect RV, we are now up to #9. Yes, lucky number 9, I hope.
Remember Goldilocks who had trouble finding a bed that was just right? Same here. But she was limited to three choices and there are limitless RV choices. We've had a few of every type: small trailers, medium trailers, big trailers. Small coach, big coach. Small and large truck campers. All had disadvantages largely related to towing. That's a big deal.
Now that we have a permanent place in Arizona we don't plan to do a lot of long trips, so we don't need the View any more. But we do want to do short trips in the southwest. So we bought the best little trailer we could find. Custom made in Canada, the lightweight 17" Escape gives us the essentials and we've found it surprisingly comfortable. And, easy to tow with the Toyota truck we bought for Arizona off-road adventures.
