    in the
    RV capital of the world, Goshen, IN.
    First-class RV education, fun, and entertainment awaits when you are Escapade bound!

    Rich in heritage, history, and hospitality, Goshen, IN, once again rolls out the welcome mat for Escapees RV Club with a warm reception. Take a stroll back in time as you appreciate the way of life that the Amish and Mennonite exhibit throughout the region, or join a tour of one of the many state-of-the-art RV manufacturing facilities located in the Goshen and Elkhart area.  

    You need not be an Escapees member to join the fun at Escapade!

    Register Early! The Elkhart County 4-H Fairgrounds plays host for the 54th Escapade and offers almost 300 full-hookup sites (50/30-amp electrical, water, and sewer) and 500 sites with 30-amp electrical service and water, as well as limited boondocking sites for dry-camping, so make your reservation early to ensure  your choice of amenity is available. Early-arrival parking is available for Saturday and Sunday. For registration and parking options, go to: Registration information.

    First-rate RV education! With more than 60 educational seminars, classes, and workshops, there is something for everyone. Fascinating featured speakers and discussion panels round out the line-up. Escapade in Goshen will feature the Full-time Lifestyle: 101 series with new seminars and workshops designed especially with full-timers and soon-to-be or wanna-be full-timers in mind!

    Escapees RVers’ Boot Camp will be in session May 9–11, preceding Escapade with an in-depth study of RV safety, operation and information.  This intensive RV training course grows in popularity with every session. It’s fun, informative and yields priceless information for RV travelers.  Visit the Boot Camp page for more information, or call 888-757-2582 to register. Don’t delay: Seats are limited and Boot Camp sells out fast!

    Escapees  SmartWeigh certified Weighmasters will be on hand to professionally weigh your rig at Escapade. Weight safety affects every aspect of the RV experience, from fuel mileage to tire wear, and can potentially pose the greatest hazard to your personal safety. Don’t go around wondering if you are overweight; let us weigh your RV and provide you with a full weight analysis in Goshen. Visit SmartWeigh for more information. You can sign up for weighing at the SmartWeigh booth, located in the Hospitality area.

    Post-Escapade HOPs! Join your SKP friends after Escapade on an excursion through the Amish lands surrounding Goshen. The Amish Heritage HOP takes you through the back roads of Indiana on a luxury coach discovering the traditions and customs of the Amish.  SKP golfers can join the Goshen post-Escapade Golf HOP for lunch and a golf “scramble” at the 18-hole, par-72 Black Squirrel Golf Course.  (Click on the links for information on these post-Escapade HOPs or visit HOPs.)

    Geeks on Tour Goshen pre-event workshops! Chris and Jim Guld (Geeks on Tour) and Escapees RV Club have partnered together to offer 3 pre-event workshops: #1. “Windows 8 hands-on basics, 6-hour workshop,” $79 pp; #2. “Get to know your android phone or tablet, 3-hour workshop,” $49 pp; and #3. “Get to know your iPhone or iPad, 3-hour workshop,” $49 pp. Workshops start Saturday morning, May 10, 2014.  Please visit Tech-Camp for additional details, and call Kim in Livingston, at 1-888-757-2582, to register for this special pre-Escapade event.

    54th Escapade Event Shirts! Order your shirts (as well as hats and sweatshirts) for pickup when you arrive at Escapade. White is the official color, but hibiscus and banana are also available. Click here to pre-order your shirts. Shirts will also be available for purchase at Escapade in limited quantities and sizes.

    That’s entertainment! Monday evening, after opening ceremony, Johnny Counterfit will regale you with his entertaining array of imperson­ations from Vince Gill to Frank Sinatra. Selected as a top comedian of the year by Music City News and featured on ABC TV’s America’s Funniest People, he delivers more than 25 voice-character impressions from the stage.  Johnny is a comedian/impressionist accompanied by a live band and is a popular Escapade performer. 

    Tuesday evening, after a very busy day of seminars and visiting the Escapade market, relax and be entertained by The Homestead Pickers, from Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri. They are a very special collection of four seasoned performers, musicians, comedians, actors, storytellers, and composers with many years of experience entertaining audiences both in Branson, Missouri and around the United States as well as tours of Ireland. Their eclectic blend of fiddle, banjo, guitar, hammered dulcimer, and unique vocals depict the early days of American music, bluegrass, gospel, and even some Irish tunes with humor unmatched by any other combination.
    Ron and Juanita Kohn and Adventure Caravans
    proudly sponsor the performances by Johnny Counterfit
    and The Homestead Pickers.
