I made sure to tell Escape about the two people who showed us their trailers. In both cases they needed to make time in their day to show it to us -- in one case we needed to drive a short way with the owner to the place the trailer was stored. I know it's not true for everyone, but a lot of people would be hesitant to buy such an expensive item without seeing it. I'm sure Tammy and Reace are glad that so many people are willing to show theirs. It's a whole lot cheaper than anything else they could possibly do to advertise the Escape. It's going to be our living space and not only would we be showing it but since we're not meticulously neat, I'm sure we'll alway need some time to straighten things up before I let anyone in. We wouldn't want people to get burnt out on showing it so having the financial incentive is to my way of thinking, important.

We have showed our 19 several times. Have had a couple of pleasant cheques from ETI. I have no problem taking a few minutes of my day to show off our trailer, the referal program is what I would consider a pleasant thing ETI does. If a few slip through the cracks so be it.

As for giving Jim Bennett a "Wobbly Pop"... I don't want to contribute to "Juvenile Delinquency". See you on the 28th. Alf

Juvenile? Alf, you say the nicest things to an aging (though still moderately young) guy. The delinquency part is just a well know fact. LOL

Thanks Charlie!! We enjoyed showing you the 21. We know what a big decision (and investment) it is. I really think it helps to have an 'in person' experience.

Hi: All... The very best advert... is"Word of mouth"!!! We came late into the world of Escape, and it was via a referral. Tammy gave me the phone # of the folks who brought the first 5.0 east of the Rockies. We made a date to see their new trailer, and were so impressed with it when the chance to own it came to me the following year, I JUMPED ON IT!!! It had been in storage since we looked at it and was only 8 months old. I figured the best we could do for ETI was to get out and camp in it.
As far as referrals go I've lost track of the numbers. Any people that ETI sent to view our 5.0 and bought an Escape... we were rewarded. Those who came to look out of curiosity were all welcomed too. A 5.0 in a WalMart parking lot can still draw a crowd!!!
Our 5.0TA will be used in the same manner and shown to all who care to look. It's the best thing we can do for Reace& Tammy and ETI. Alf

No problems Donna. I just took what you wrote at face value. I know that sometimes things don't appear in print with exactly the same meaning as what was intended.

I prefer to believe most people are honest, but this would be easy to forget. I plan on "helping" them. YMMV

Very dedicated user group promoting a well designed and well built product. Pretty much what sold me on ours.
