Escapees SmartWeigh is an educational RV program created by the Escapees RV Club for the exclusive purpose of enhancing safety, enjoymentand the overall success of the RV lifestyle.
Angie Carr, executive director of the Escapees RV Club, stated in a news release, “A long-standing mission of the club is to educate RVers, both new and experienced, on the aspects of RVing safely. There’s a big difference between what you can do and what you should do for the safety of yourself and your family. The new SmartWeigh program will be operated within the highly praised RVers’ Boot Camp program since both focus on preparing RVers for this wonderful lifestyle. Really, the Smart Weigh tag says it all: ‘Escape with Peace of Mind.’”
SmartWeigh provides critical RV weight safety and load management information in a highly accurate and usable format. In order to produce the most accurate information, Escapees SmartWeigh uses quality scales, which are annually tested. Highly trained weighing teams will also use only the most suitable weighing sites, like the one specifically designed and installed at Escapees headquarters for this purpose.
Neil LeKander, SmartWeigh program administrator, explained, “This is a comprehensive program that addresses all the major weight and load management issues. Once your RV is weighed, you will be provided with the resources that allow you to understand your weight control options in order to help you make the necessary changes to correct any weight or loading issues. It also provides the essential data for RV trailer hitch analysis and adjustment, as well as the information needed to correctly set your tire pressures for longer tire life and a better ride.”
The Escapees SmartWeigh program will be introduced in phases as rapidly as possible. The first scheduled weighing event took place at Rainbow’s End during the Escapees Octoberfest and the RVers’ Boot Camp program in Livingston, Texas. The next weighing event will take place at Escapees North Ranch RV Park in Congress, Ariz., Jan. 31 to Feb. 3, during Escapees RVers’ Boot Camp.
In the future, SmartWeigh will be offered at many other club and RV events! Weighing will also be available at Rainbow’s End on a weekly basis when event schedules permit. Please check www.escapees.com/smartweigh for a list of times and places.
