They would give you a new one, if there is one available. Since ETI doesn't make the 15' any more, it would have to be comparable. Start negotiations now.

I'd end up with a 17' with graphics that say Escape 19.
BTW, I did call the insurance agent last year just to make sure of the insurance I have. Agent told me if my trailer was stolen or a tree fell on it, I would get a 2016 Escape 17 with the same options.

Then I guess we need to become Canadian. The insurance on all fronts beats the heck out of ours.

It is quite possible that they would try to contract with ETI to build a 15' in such a case. Or the party would get a 17'!

That's the negotiation part.
Can't imagine the insurance company agreeing to pay a premium to have ETI build a one-off 15'. They'd likely offer a cash amount or perhaps allow the insured to pay toward a 17'.
But, I don't know what they would do, so I'm parking this one.

I'm not really looking for a new replacement but there is no telling what an equivalent one would go for- prices for used vary greatly but for 15As there just aren't very many comps out there. That's the issue. Though probably the only realistic thing is to insure for purchase price and hope nothing ever happens but if it does, I'd have at least something towards whatever I replaced it with.

It's pure speculation of course, but in such a case Escape might be willing to price out an "invoice" for a 15, even though they don't offer it anymore -- just for valuation purposes on an insurance claim. Who knows. What I do know is that replacement cost coverage gives me a little more peace of mind.

I believe what the insurance companies do is give you a cheque for the replacement cost of the trailer. You can take that money and spend it on whatever replacement trailer you chose. It probably doesn't even have to be a trailer??

I had experiences with replacement cost on a vehicle. The insurance company determined what the equivalent cost of a new vehicle would be from the dealer, without regard to what I had actually paid for the vehicle, and wrote me a cheque for that value. In my case I had paid far less than the replacement cost I received as I had purchased it at one of the big year end clearance sales. The insurance company knew what I had paid but gave me the greater value.

Mistakenly I had assumed that the insurance company would find a replacement vehicle, but no, it was up to me to do the shopping. So I could have bought any vehicle I chose and it could have been less $$$ than the payout value and pocketed the left over dollars. Or I could have bought a more expensive vehicle and paid the difference. The insurance company dos not guarantee that you will get the exact same vehicle as it may no longer be produced.

I would assume the same would apply to an Escape trailer. Take the estimated payout value for a 15A which is no longer in production and buy any Escape trailer you choose. Just pay the upgrade cost.

ETI would probably be contacted by the insurance company, as rbryan4 suggested, and they could provide a value probably based on what the percentaage differential between the cost of a 15A and a 17A was in 2010 say if that was the year of the trailer in question. Take that differential and apply it against today's cost of a 17A and that would be the $$$ value of the insurance payout for a 15A. You the insured decide whatever you want to do with the money after that. The insurance company does not get concerned if you can actually get a new or used Escape 15A. So I don't think the insurance company would ask ETI to produce one more 15A today.

Insurance companies do like to give out checks which is probably far less work for them. If you wanted another trailer, Escape used to make a 13' once in a while when they were "no longer" making them. Don't know if they have stopped that completely or not. I expect so since they are so busy now and can't begin to keep up.
