Thanks Jim for clearing up the recall thing for me. I now know why our dealer never heard of it. It sure did make me feel better about my little trailer.

Either way, congrats on your purchase and the start of your new adventures!

Well, I am getting an education in here....luv it.
It's nice to know the difference. I wonder who used the Escape name first...do you know? It makes it a little confusing to newbies. I know now why I have never seen an Escape before, I understand they are from the West coast & I am in Northern Ontario. They sure are pretty though. I am real happy with my sticky too....lol

The difference is that KZ has a model line called a Spree, and one of the models in that line is the Spree Escape. The "make" is not Escape, but KZ.

Escape Trailer Industries makes only Escape trailers, of which there are several sizes, the 17, the 19, the 21 and the 5.0 TA. The "make" is Escape.

The "Escape" trailer name has probably been used by more than one manufacturer over the years, since "Escaping" is kind of what you do with a trailer.
