Designing a proper solar solution for 2017 and beyond is a must...anything else is going backwards unless you want to market it as retro.
2. create a proper lockable storage area for at least two AGM batteries for that solar array keeping in mind how much they weigh and cost $$$.
3. better integration of the storage option currently on the tongue

ruled out a 21 because of the bed/bathroom layout...hopefully some day they offer something else with the door at the rear which will allow that bathroom to move to back also..similar to the 25B21FB Bigfoot has..great layout for some.

ironically we are making suggestions or sharing ideas and Escape is already trying to finish the 19 mold for the 2017 model....
A lot of great suggestions . I especially like your suggestions with the solar . Why I am still hesitating with adding solar to the trailer . I just do not feel comfortable with the installations of the solar the way they are . I wish I could have 2 100 watts side by side instead of across the width of trailer using 1 . Pat

Kinda irrelevant, but the Coleman 40W portable panels are going on sale again this weekend for $99 at Canadian Tire. What's that in USD?

Already have a 80 watt portable and a Honda Gen . Would be nice to have permanently installed panels . Pat

I know Reace said no new sizes, but what about bringing back the Escape 15 for a limited run?

We are approximately 6 weeks away from the unveil.

The new design will allow us to offer some new updated Standard Features and as well as a revised Options List with new additions. The interior layout for each model is not changing, however there will be subtle improvements throughout each Escape Trailer model for 2017.

Escape Trailer Industries has had to implement a price increase for all new orders. Some, of this increase is a result of the poor state of the Canadian dollar and some is a result of what’s to come…

Reace and Tammy
very excited to soon see interior pics of the 2017 - showing the somewhat revised interior... and the 2017 fabric / floor stock options.
