Too late to the party!

Hey! Been trolling trailer sites/forums all over since retiring 4 years ago and think we've finally settled on getting an Escape 5.0TA. But it looks like the wait goes on! I guess it's a testament to quality and value that it looks like if we can hang in it will be 2017 at the earliest! Impressed with the quality of information and helpful advice on this forum, too! Looking forward to being an owner someday! Does anyone ever sell their place in line, LOL!!!

Welcome, Tford!

You have made a good choice. They are moving into additional space so maybe it is possible there will be a few more 2016's made.

Hi Tford. Always better late than never. Get your order in when they start taking them and then you will have time to do your research and get the perfect build sheet. We could have had our trailer in 7 or 8 months but ordered it out for a year in advance and that year just flew by. You'll have it before you know it. Plus Escape is always refining and improving their product so who knows what improvements and options will be offered. Loren

Welcome aboard.

I would send in the $500 deposit as soon as they will allow. Not certain, but even though they are not doing any production scheduling for 2017 yet, will they still allow a deposit to hold a spot to be determined?

What Cathy and Jim said.......Definitely worth a call to escape to see if they will take your $500 as a place holder. The production schedule is often accelerated to less than 12 months. Good Luck and Welcome!

Hi: Tford... Late to the party usually means no hangover!!! Hard to believe "Escape Hatch II" is a year and a half old already. She was #2 off the line. Many changes and custom work done on the 5.0TA now. Taking her out tomorrow for her first bearing repack and brake adjust. Time really does fly by!!! Alf

Highly doubt they are taking deposits as that would be orders.

We're waiting too. Here's part of the email response we got from Escape back in September:

"The 2017 Production Schedule will be released in January 2016. Please check back on the website (Escape Trailer Industries – Chilliwack, British Columbia) for updates. At this time we are not keeping a waiting list or accepting deposits for new trailers.

When we begin taking orders we require a non-refundable $500 deposit which can be processed over the phone with a credit card. Full payment for the trailer is due on or before your completion date."

It appears they won't do a 2017 schedule until after renovations in the spring. From their website

We hope to complete all renovations by late Spring 2016 at which time we will be able to release our 2017 Production Schedule and hopefully offer some additional completion dates to our 2016 Production Schedule.
We will be providing updates and photos as new information becomes available.

Yes, it looks as if they are not taking orders until spring but when they do, maybe there will be a few more spots for 2016 orders.
