orientation delivery

cpaharley 2008
"I asked Escape about the orientation delivery and they said their attorney was investigating the issue".
More information please.

I believe that our Escape 19 will be delivered on the same truck as ColoRockiesFan.

July - Delivery to Reston, VA - Delivery Date Approx. July 12. Please note this truck is now full. (Escape home page)

When my Escape was delivered there was another 19 on board. The other couple was from out of state and drove to my house to take delivery. After unloading we immediately hooked up and went camping nearby in Gettysburg, Pa. KOA. The other couple were new to camping and the Escape. I showed them how to turn every thing on, how to level the unit, open the awning, and other basic items. All of these are explained on the dvd Escape provides but they did not have a dvd player.
The following day upon departure the other couple thanked me for all of my help in explaining how things worked in the camper. Although this was my first Escape, it was my 6th camper and as we know there are a lot of common items found in most campers.
Anyway, I got to thinking about how some persons are not as experienced or have been exposed to other fiberglass trailers. When I saw that there were 2 Escapes coming within 100 miles of myself, I contacted Escape Industries and stated that if the 2 new owners wanted to take delivery at my house, that afterwards we all could go camping at a nearby campground and I would
assist them in setting up the dual axles, leveling and other items that may be new to them. I figure this would be a good way to meet new Escape owners and to help them out. I emailed and also called Escape and spoke with Kim.
Kim @ Escape said my email was given to Reace and that he forwarded it to their attorney for review. I have not heard back from them on this issue.
But my offer still stands for the two of you, since you are coming from Indiana and the other owner is in Washington, DC suburb you have to meet somewhere for delivery. Then afterwards you are on your own. You are welcome to meet here in York, to take delivery and there is a cg 5 miles away or a another one maybe 15 miles away. I would stay away from Gettysburg as they are celebrating the 150th anniversary of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address all summer long. It is up to you, no obligation.
If you are interested, I'd suggest you check with Tammy and Reace and let me know your/their decision.

Thank you for your generous offer and consideration. We will pick up the TT in Goshen, IN which is aprox. 16 miles away. Pa is much further. Unfortunately, unexpected family circumstances will limit our travel until at least August. Family does come first. We do have experience with TT's and hope that the CD from Escape trailers is comprehensive. It would be great if the CD or video was specific to the individual build that is being delivered. Once again thank you for your generosity, it is above and beyond. If we have any questions we will contact you.

It would be really awesome for Escape to have an official east coast presence. I'm sure the attorney referral is to judge what kind of liability Escape would be exposed to if someone you oriented did something wrong and got hurt.

I wonder if Escape would consider offering to "train" interested persons and making them able to give "official" Escape orientations. Maybe the liability issue would be eased.

It's a shame that we live in such a litigatious society.

Either way ColoRocky,
I'm willing to help. Once you get your date confirmed maybe I'll mosey down to that Virgina KOA CG you mentioned and we can have a mini rally. I know of at least one other owner in DC and one in NC- that would be 4 of us!!

Hi Jim,

I called the Luray KOA (1-800-562-2790) and made a reservation for Thursday Aug. 8 through Sunday, August 11th.

I'm in site 69. Sites 62-70 are large and shaded. They also overlook the mountains and small valley. Very nice!!

The rep at the park said there was plenty of space and if anyone called for reservations they should ask for the Virginia Escape Rally and she would put them near me.

I will post separately as well in the Rally section and on the Fiberglass RV forum.

Hope to see you there!

Lisa
