Welcome aboard Jon. The more you learn about molded fiberglass trailers the more you see the advantages in resale value, light weight, ease of towing, efficiency, and much more. The Escape forum will be a valuable resource.

If you're at all in the market, I encourage you to contact Escape Trailer Industries and ask them to refer you to an owner in your area. They'll be happy to show you their trailer and answer any questions.

Welcome Jon. Having owned a 21 foot Nash trailer that was destroyed after 12 years due to hidden leaks, I highly recommend a molded fibreglass trailer with no seams at the stress points where walls meet roof and floor. In fact the Escape has no seams, just cutouts for door and windows, etc. The quality of the Escape is so much better than our Nash. Appliances are better quality and even the brakes are better (smoother; need little adjusting between trips, if at all). Tows easy and best of all is the great support from ETI. Visit the factory and meet Tammy and Reese. It's worth the trip.

Yeah, just noticed that you're in Lumby. Definitely worth the 3 1/2 to 4 hour trip to the factory!

Welcome...You'll be duly impressed with the quality of Escapes. They're kid friendly too.

Hi Jon, I encourage you to shop, compare, and review the consumer trailer ratings and trailer forums. Pretty sure you'll come back to an Escape. Great to see you planning with your kids!

Try clicking on the Owners Map tab.
It shows a 15 footer in Kelowna, but I happen to know there is a lovely couple with a 17 in Vernon.
Call ETI, and they'll give you nearby owners to visit.
People love to show them off.

People also get a check from ETI if you turn their name in as a reference when you order a new trailer. That's the manufacturer direct sales incentive.

Yep, just got one this week for showing BlackJack last year to a couple. The check only comes after the referral party takes ownership of their trailer. I told Escape just to credit my referrals to my build sheet....
