Click on the red Escape Trailer Industries logo on the right side of the screen. It will take you to their page and answer most of your questions.

While they are fairly small, I posted some photos of the construction of my 17B on my blogspot webpage back in April, 2011. They start here. More here, here and here.

Here is the floor, post 13 and 19 by the owner of the company. The thread might have other info you are looking for. Top notch construction all the way around.

More info again from the Owner post 18 seamed together while still in the mold, for very tight tolerance.

Your best bet would be to call Escape directly and talk to Tammy or Reace regarding the construction of Escape trailers. Based on my experience and what I have heard from others, they will be happy to discuss all aspects of the Escape trailer construction process with you.
