Bathroom size? 21!!!

If there is any way you can swing it, a trip to the ETI rally next May in BC via Seattle or Spokane would be a great idea but not required.

There's nothing on Escape's website that indicates no production dates for a 17 in 2017. Where did you get this info? From Escape directly?

Right, saw that, but again, nothing there indicating there are no 2017 production dates for a 17.

The way I read it is that there are no production dates for any Escape trailer until they open them up in 2016.

Right, I read it the same. When they announce production dates for 2017 models (January 2016), there will certainly be 2017 production dates for all models. Pretty amazing though that if you want any model new right now, you're looking at a minimum 16 months wait. Ours was 9 months and we thought 'sheesh' at the time. Methinks the price of a used Escape just went up.

Just says to check back in Jan, but they use the "early 2016" language before they open orders. Might be Feb, March or so before they take orders. I'm sure the exchange rate has a play in it. Hard to project costs, margin, etc on a product that you aren't going to build or buy supplies to build for a year and a half. If everyone that is ordering is exchanging currency and sending it in now and the exchange rate worsens you lose margin when you build those trailers. Very challenging times right now for Canadian businesses that do US sales to navigate.

I think the U.S. suppliers are the challenge, not the U.S. sales.

Hi Tara and Tim
I think the best thing would be to go and look at them, either a trip to the factory or calling the factory and getting the names of some more or less local owners. These small trailers are not for everyone, find one of the smaller 19' class, and a larger 21 or fifth wheel to look over. Also look at conventional box trailers. If your husband is thinking a 35' double slide trailer with fireplace and big screen TV, and you are thinking cute cozy 19' fiberglass, someone isn't going to be happy.

Bathroom on the 21' is bigger then that on the 19 or 50.TA, which are the same. It's called a wet bath as the whole room is the shower.

There is quite a bit of difference between the 19 and the 21/5.0TA, space wise, so try and see both. A foot or 2 in length and a few inches in width make a big difference.
