That seems like a good guess to me.
I own a Boler (also moulded fiberglass) and have been looking at Escapes for almost a decade. One detail that I noticed is that where the seam between upper and lower shells meets the door opening in the Boler there is an awkward joint, but at the equivalent location on an Escape there is a seamless gelcoat finish as if the whole shell was one piece. This is achieved by including a moulded fiberglass inner door frame, and hand-finishing the joint at the door on the outside (the rest of the joint is covered by the encircling trim piece). I think this finishing work is an example of ETI's approach, and a reason to choose an Escape.

I think there are more than 4... At least 3 on the east side, and 3 on the west side, if everyone still have their trailer since I last met/chatted with them.

I can't wait to update the owner map.

Don't beat yourself up Donna!
I could be wrong. I just figured there are at least 4 owners active on this forum, and none of you had showed us your trailer when we toured the 17' and 19', it adds up to 6. People do move around more often these days.

Ten Forward is always open for tours.. but, you need to be interested in a 5th wheel... exactly the same from the door back to a 21' EXCEPT the bathroom.. 5ers get a pantry AND a closet
