Did you not get the memo. If you signed up for the forum on day one of it's existence your limit doubles.

The awning is standard on Escape trailers and I calculate the AC adds only about US$800. I must be missing something...

The 5.0TA was a new model when I got it 2 years ago, it's already relegated to Classic status. Who'd a thunk it'd be an old model in 2 years.

You could create a new account, make it something like gbags. No one would know who you were and you'd start all over at 0. We'd all be talking about whatever happened to Glen.

I have not posted much but look at the forum daily. Since our Escape 21 will be ready in August we are excited to get everything organized to pick it up and full time in our Pea Pod. I have found that the contributors have a vast knowledge and are a wonderful source of information. Since I am not even close to a seasoned Escape owner, I hope to contribute more as our knowledge increases!

The ac was almost 900. For us . Now it is almost 1200, because it has the digital thermostat . I know you have the exchange too , but it sure bumps your price sheet up . Don't forget you will be hit with taxes on what you purchase . It can end up a lot of money . Pat

I'm seeing $1100CDN for the AC with digital thermostat on ETI's website which today is about USD$850. Is their website wrong? This is a far cry from the poster's estimate of two grand which was my point.

Well hit me with a wet noodle . 1100. For a 19 in option list today . We paid 885 , with not much exchange . You still have to pay taxes , you can add to the mix . Pat

I would imagine from going through the process myself, that a decently equipped 17 with taxes and the expense of the trip to pick up is going to come in at $25k +
Affordability, especially in the molded fiberglass trailer market is going to be a challenge for some folks to purchase an Escape, forget the Oliver I respect that and hear what they're saying.
Hopefully, the OP sometime before retirement will have an unexpected windfall and can get the trailer they want.

My 91 y/o Mother is always telling me, you can always make more money, you can't make more time. If you wait to retire for a new trailer... we're only given so many camping seasons in life. I wouldn't want to miss out on a single one. When I was younger I didn't even consider getting old. Now I am. I figure I have about 10-15 more years of camping in me. I'm not going to miss a single one! YMMV
