We are in the process of looking at all our options for a retirement trailer/rv. This summer we rented a motorhome and didn't really like the driving experience. None of the trailers sold on lots are what we are looking for either. We were happy to find you guys, the Escape looks to be a good option.

We are planning on going to the rv show in Hershey next week and would also like to see a few models of Escape soon.

Is it ok to stop at a rally and look if we don't currently have a trailer?

Thanks,
Ruby and Larry

Welcome Ruby and Larry.

Escape makes a great trailer if it offers what you are looking for. Folks at rallies welcome others to come and view their trailers. This is a great way to see various options.

We are also considering an Escape purchase and plan to visit the 2018 Mississippi River Rendezvous September 28-30. I see from posts on this forum that the attendees have extended invitations to interested parties.

Hi: ruby.larry... You'd be most welcome to attend Niagara Wine Escape Sept 14-16 at the Riverside CG. in Niagara Falls Ontario. All models will be there along with their owners and may be viewed on Sat. AM. We love visitors and showing off. You may not see many fiberglass trailers at any RV shows as most fiberglass mfg's deal direct with the customers not through dealers. IMHO it's better to talk to the actual owners about their experiences.
If you do make it over stop in at site 52 and say hello!!!

The other thing you can do is contact Escape Trailer Industries and ask them if there is an owner in your area who might be willing to show their Escape to you. Escape Trailer Industries – Chilliwack, British Columbia
Most owners are more than happy to let prospective owners look at their trailers.

Welcome to the forum. We live in Grand Rapids, MI and if you are out our way, you would be welcome to stop by and see our 21'. We were in the same position you were and seeing a trailer really helped us. There are lots of helpful people on this forum and at the rallies so hopefully something works out for you.

Thank you and we would love to stop by on Saturday morning to meet everyone and see the Escape trailers. I'm afraid you will be right about the RV show but it was already planned before we found the world of fiberglass campers. Looking forward to next Saturday.

The Hershey show is huge, some claim it to be the largest RV show. You need at least 2 days to see it all. Went to it once when I first came up here, after finding the Escape, never went back.
