A trailer as unique as an Escape deserves a fitting name. Have you given your Escape a name, either at the factory or after-market? If so, this award is for you. Trailers built/named in late 2021-Present are eligible for this award.
Shawna and Jeff Turner – E5.0 – Sólfar – Category Favorite
“Sólfar means “Sun Voyager” in Icelandic and our Escape is certainly a Sun Voyager! We went to Iceland for our honeymoon in 2015, and after many, many hours of flying, we landed in Reykjavík, tired and bleary eyed. Sólfar was one of the first things we saw when we arrived and it really spoke to us. We just sat and stared at it for a long time. It was beautiful! The image on the trailer is my best drawing/representation of the Sólfar statue (it’s a viking ship). I’ve included photos of the sculpture as well as one with me on it to show scale.
David Hendrickson – E21C – Caboose
It’s time to hitch up the “Caboose”.
Bennett Clark and Anna Bezzo-Clark – E19 – Baby Beluga
Our big pickup truck is named “Great White Whale”.
Carolyn Hayes – E5.0 – Laura Lou
My mother was Laura Louise. She spent most summers car camping 3 little girls across country while my dad flew west to consult. We camped and searched for fossils and gemstones and took trips with the Sierra Club. She was primarily a musician but loved adventure and the outdoors. It is simple, but fitting to name my trailer after a woman long gone from us, but who would have enthusiastically encouraged and been a partner in my travels.
James and Mary Kowalczyk – E19 – “No particular place to go” – Chuck Berry
Heading out for a long trip with uncertain destinations, and Chuck Berry and old rock-n-roll fans, seems perfect for us.
Rich Ling – E21NE – Escape 925
We are retiring from the Nine to Five working life and as we have a brand new Escape Trailer it seemed fitting that we would name our Trailer “Escape 925”. (Dolly Parton would approve)
Julianna Lefevre – E5.0 – Wild Blue Wander
My husband is punny.
Lawrence and Tamara Sloan – E19 – Our Fandango
There are a couple of reasons we chose to name the trailer ‘Our Fandango’. One is because my husband loves the movie Fandango and it was a coming of age movie etched in his/our minds (lots of great quotes from this movie). The second is the definition of Fandango: def: Informal Nonsense; tomfoolery or a foolish act (depends on the dictionary).
Richard Farr – 17B – The Blue Wave
Could be political or could refer to the blue pinstriping.
Robert (Bob) Dendoff – E17B – Bird’s Nest
Our across trip in 2022.
Peter Robinson – E21NE – Eleanor of Aquataine (Eleanor)
My wife named our truck Henry and since Eleanor of Aquitaine was King Henry’s of France’s wife it just seemed right that they stay together.
Klaus Exner – E5.0 – Sally
Definition of sally: an excursion or trip, usually off the main course. To “sally forth” is also common usage. So the name Sally is a good descriptor for our wanderings.
Gary and Jodi Sheldon – E5.0 – TRVL’INN
It’s our traveling home away from home.
Mark and Mary Anderson – E19 – Spirit Bear
As for our love of bears, we choose spirit bear (know as Kemode). They are located in the north coast regions of British Columbia. Since escape trailer are made in BC, we thought it would be fitting. We haven’t gotten the lettering as of this email so no pictures as of now.
