Nov 2017-PDFs w/Measurements for all Escape models....

I just noticed that on ETI's website, they now have PDF's showing an extensive array of measurements for each trailer. Look under "Layouts"; you'll see a PDF w/measurements listed.
How cool is that!!!

Edit: might as well show all the links:
Here's the 17:

Yes, this should answer a lot of prospective owner's questions. Made the thread as sticky.

Very helpful for folks. Be nice if they also listed the current trailer weights on these documents as well as that always seems to come up.

Build your Escape

I am the first to admit that I have no idea what computer programming costs or how programs are written. If you happen to want to build a custom Kubota or John Deere tractor, you start with the base tractor and through a series of prompts you add options and upgrades. Once you’re through the list You hit grand total and shortly after clutch your heart in a reality moment. Then you go back and modify your build and try to get the price down. It would not be that hard for someone who knows programming to put a weight component in the calculation too. Maybe someday this will become a standard frature with Escape or other forms of ordering. The pdf addition will in fact answer a lot of questions. The standard response to published dimensions should become “ have you studied the pdf ?”. Where weights are concerned my advice is give yourself a cushion.

Cool idea Dave. It wouldn’t be hard to do the weight calculator as most websites nowadays lay over a database. You’d just need the base weight and data entry on the weight of each option put into the DB. The front end calculator wouldn’t be hard to build out if the data is there.

Dave, both you and I and others gave up on the weight issue when we started drinking....

Dave, Jim;
Weight is easy to calculate: you start with your base weight at about age 20. Then you measure how many degrees your belt buckle is out of plumb (vertical) now. Base Wt. + [(# of degrees ) x 3.5 ] = current weight.

Note that if # of degrees > 20, then a sway brace is required. There is no weight distribution equipment on the market that can compensate!
