Production Schedule for 2019

Looks like a banner year coming up, there is only one day available for each Escape model -17/19/21/5.0 for the first 4 months in 2019. Appears like production is in full swing, estimated to be 2/day.

We were going to have the first 2019 5.0TA, but found that getting everything sorted out on our build sheet, ordering fabric, etc. went more smoothly and quickly than we had anticipated (months of reading everything on the forum helped tremendously) and saw that a Dec. 28 slot was still available that came with the $1,000 discount so we switched to that.

It still can be the first 2019, I believe Escape changes their year in December, my 2014 Escape was finished in December, 2013, but titled 2014.

I picked up my 2008 17B in July of that year. It is titled 2009.

That's really something, how fast the schedule fills this time of year. I looked about 3 weeks ago, and at that time I think there were still slots in November.


But then, who wouldn't like to get their new trailer right around May or early June? Good time of year for a vacation to BC!

Yes, a vehicle manufacturer can pick their transition of model years arbitrarily, and it is common to switch months before the actual change of year. With cars that corresponds to when the design is changed (either a new generation or just minor updates), but since there are few if any year-to-year changes for most RVs the transition usually isn't important.

Car buyers do often want a newer-looking model year designation to help resale value when they ditch the thing only a few years later. This doesn't seem so important for Escapes.

But the 10th character of the VIN says that the model year is 2008, so it's just titled incorrectly, right?

Beats me. It's on the insurance papers as 2009 and when Tammy made the name tags for the Escape Rally she put 2009 17B.
The paper inside the cupboard and the sticker on the outside give the date of manufacture as 2008.
Matters not to me.
Just added registration and license document. So government and private insurance and Tammy all say 2009.
