Welcome on board Sandy! Hope it all works out! Depending on when you want your "sizeable bed" trailer, you might want to consider convincing your "tall" husband before April 1th.When not in a hurry, May works: You only need a lot of patience as it probably puts you in the 2018 completion dates. Good luck with everything. Hope to meet you on the road some day!!

Thanks for the heads up, Marry!
I knew that there was a long lead time for a build, but I did not realize HOW long. I'll have to step it up!


Cheers,
Sandy

That might have been a typo and Marry meant 2017 instead of 2018. they've said on their web site they're booking for the 2017 production schedule, starting on April 1st.

However, with that being said, if all of their 2017 spots fill up quickly, then, yeah, you'll have to wait until they open up the 2018 production schedule, probably in 2017.

If you want it sooner rather than later, I'd suggest viewing some of the trailers that are probably in your neck of the woods. Ask ETI for names or someone on this forum might be close enough for viewing. If you decide before April 1st, then you can join the phone dialing marathon for ordering your trailer sooner than May.

Even though we viewed the display models at the factory, it was far more enjoyable to view owner's trailers as you got to see where they shoved (um, stored!) their stuff, hung their coats, towels and all that. The display models don't have anything in them other than a loose comforter on the bed.

"Probably", no typing error. Just thinking of all eager south of the border wannabees.

Hi everyone,
I appreciate how friendly and helpful you all have been!

We went to an open house at an RV dealer last week and have purchased a 2013 Evergreen Element 26SRL. I love the Escape, but by the time we loaded it up with everything we wanted, it would have been almost 40K Canadian for a trailer that we wouldn't be able to enjoy until the summer of 2017 at the earliest. The Element has mostly everything we were looking for, and more, for the price of a base Escape. Being a used model, I am hopeful that any bugs have already been worked out! :-)

I hope to see some Escapes when we are on the road, and maybe will visit with you!

Cheers,
Sandy

I'm glad you found something that you can enjoy. Although it doesn't have the same moulded construction as an Escape, at least it has a no-wood body!

Are they doing away with the Element? I see "Dealer Stock Only" on their website. We tried to look at them when they came out but they were in shorter supply then Escapes are.

I believe the Element is no longer in production. It too was on my radar years ago. Why they stopped in 2014 is unknown to me.
