I'd say about 50% owners here have done the same

Yep, that was me 8 years ago when the 19 was announced. I went on customer satisfaction, and a wee bit of discourse with Reace.

Oh, and the fact they were coming out with a new layout that suited our wants better than any other.

But, you had seen other Escapes. There is a bunch of folks like me who had never seen one at all before ordering.

I have been emailing with a couple we met in Yosemite last summer who own a 21' escape. Last week they were in Myakka. Not sure how long they plan to stay.

I had done about all the research I can without actually stepping in a fiberglass trailer, but got that opportunity yesterday when visiting a Scamp Camp get together at Sebring, which is just a couple hours away. C&G in FL happened to be there with their beautiful 5.0TA and graciously gave us a tour and answered our many questions. They couldn't have been nicer, and we loved the quality of their trailer. Seeing one in person was awesome.



We also met a very nice couple with a Casita, and was able to tour that as well. Even though it was brand new and well-optioned, it was pretty disappointing after C&G's Escape. It was great to be able to see these two specimens on the same day, and really cemented in our minds that an Escape was in our future!



I plan to try to put a deposit on a 19 once they start taking orders again, and look forward to pestering you all with questions!

We will be in Lake Kissimmee SP for a few days in early March to attend a few spring training games. If you want a tour of our 19 PM me.

HI Garland,
We have a 21 and are in Myakka SP near Sarasota. Last night walking the campground we noticed two Escape 19's. So there are opportunities here for seeing a couple different types of Escape here. We are in Old Prairie loop until Monday.

I was into the Casita too first. Got a chance see one just around the corner from where I live. I was a bit content with it, even though I had zero headroom in it. I then had a chance to see an Escape 19 with a cover on it, so really only saw the interior. Wife & daughter signed off on the interior space, and the headroom was perfect since I just break the six foot mark.

I then searched the Internet to try and find any customer service problems with ETI, since the industry seems to have it's fair share of problems, and couldn't find any.

I'm 15yrs away from retirement and so happy to own a second home on wheels. The 5.0TA is a beautiful trailer.
