2016/2017 Escape News

2016 will be a very exciting year for Escape Trailer Industries as we plan to grow to meet the demand for our product.

Along with our facility expansion and factory upgrades…. The 2017 Escape trailers will have a new look! We are still working on the molds and can’t divulge too much information at this time, however there are some new and exciting changes coming for the 2017 model. 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

New molds. Wow - I can't wait to see it. Maybe two-foot-itis will become more prevalent than ever.

I wonder if there will be cancellations of the later 2016 orders if the 2017's are significantly improved?

Nothing will take away from the fact the existing models are not great trailers. In fact, there is a likelihood that some will prefer the original features.

Well I will head off speculations on a new trailer size...we are simply tweaking the look of the existing trailers, not adding a new size.

Customers with a 2016 completion date will be given the option of upgrading to the 2017 model once it is ready for production, however the recent price increase would apply.

Who's gonna be the first to trade a 5.0TA for a new 5.0TA, unless of course it becomes the 5.1TA.

Does that mean if you upgrade you'd have to wait till 2017 to get it? Or will it get switched to the new body once production starts on those? Thanks

I'm thinking maybe an Escape Tow Vehicle to match the trailer.
