Just drove west on I 40 so jealous of seeing all those casitas. I had one and miss it greatly I thought about an escape trailer as I was tired of the rivets but from my research they are growing to quickly and the quality is going down hill I hope the 50k on this trailer will provide a quality trailer I understand they all have issues but they are close to home, 5 hours, so I can bring in for repairs I hope I am excited to order one next year

All I could think, was... REALLY? That's NOT my understanding...

Yes, CB's have their own website for locations and even an APP. As Alf alludes to, you stop around 10 pm and park in the "Buses and RV's only" section. Go inside and order a hot meal, they close at 11 pm, use their facilities and then camp in their parking lot until next morning. They open at 6 am for a hot breakfast to go, again use their facilities and be on the road by 7 am. A lot nicer than your Walmart set up.

As I read it, it had nothing to do with a blizzard and there was no water coming in.

Okay, now I understand. The trailer wasn't leaking from rain/snow, it was condensation! Yep... been through that a LOT with the Scamp and single pane windows and not understanding about ventilation, etc. So far, owning Ten Forward for 15 months zero problems. I'm going out next month (mid-November) so another test coming.

Yes now as I read it "condensation" was prevalent not moisture from the outside. My apologies!

I fail to see how it is an issue with Escape trailers. There is no problem keeping it warm, you just have to add ventilation when inside a lot.

We got to tour two of the five Olivers (23'+) that were at the recent Cherokee, NC fiberglass rally. We had toured the factory in our state of Tennessee before discovering Escapes.

They make a quality product, but they sell for around $50,000 (U.S. dollars, of course), and all five that were present were the twin bed design (30" wide), with a nightstand between. It can be built to be a king bed, but that would leave only a 1 +1 dinette at the other end. Many good, but heavy extras, with most towing at well over 6000 lbs. One owner reported his full size V8 gas engine pick up was being taxed with the load, and he was looking to increase his tow vehicle to an HD, possibly diesel.

Another owner said the five Olivers present were 5% of the total production, so I assume there have been around 100 sold. Glad the owners like them, but they are not direct competitors to our wonderful Escapes.
