T@B to Escape 19 (maybe)

After a month of lurking and a week of email to Chilliwack, my wife and I are looking to upgrade to an Escape 19 from a T@B clamshell. We've visited a local one and are impressed with the vehicle. Traded notes with Escape and settled on options and customization. Tried to order one on Tue and it seems we are caught up in the 2014->2015 cutover.

The product, people, and community seem wonderful. Hopefully, the business aspect catches up.

I kind of thought the business end is doing pretty darn good, not bad being booked up a year in advance.

Yes, Tammy and Reace deserve a round of applause for producing a great product. I also suspect that the tremendous enthusiasm for anything Escape by so many of those who frequent this forum is a pretty significant contributor to the success of the product, and the long backlog for trailer orders.

This won't hurt the resale value either for those moving up or selling for other reasons.

After a week working through details, I tried to order one on Tue, credit card in hand. Couldn't do it.

I assume it's just a cutover issue from 2014 models to 2015; but it's a bit frustrating.

I would suspect that fairly soon they will be working on he 2015 calender. Although I can apreciate the frustration, if the waiting period is into next year then waiting a short while for them to work out the 2015 calender shouldn't really effect anything. I guess the good news is all those people that will be selling their trailers at the end of this camping season shouldn't have any problem sellling them. By the end of this summer I suspect the next spring calender will be full as well.

When my wife and I put our deposit down we were looking at a september delivery date. About a week later someone backed out and we were bumped up to june. You never know.

Buying an all molded towable is very different than when you bought your T@B. No dealers, no inventory. I don't know of any brand where you waltz in and just buy off a lot. Some of the manufacturers have shorter wait lists, but the demand for a custom all molded towable far exceeds production. Good for US, good for THEM. It's about value.

Do NOT delay. If you KNOW you want an Escape trailer (size ??) get on the list! They're really busy (building MY trailer) be patient, you won't regret THAT.
