2011 Escape 17B for sale - $17,500 (may deliver to Southern US!)

Howdy from Texas!
We have decided to transition to full-time rv living. In order to continue working and meet my obligations while on the road, we'll need a bigger space. We tow this with a 2015 Ford Explorer that has a 5000 lb tow capacity. The Explorer handles it with ease. We love this trailer and the ease of towing, parking, features, etc. but we need to go bigger.
So, we are offering our 2011 17B for sale - asking price is $17,500.

It has all the standard features of a 17B plus the following upgrades:
From factory
Air conditioner ready (reinforcing of roof to support weight and wiring, including breaker in power box) but no air conditioner (AC installed August 2018 by Escape)
3 burner stove
All LED lights
Tail lights above window
2 bike mount
Custom Formica finish (replaced with bamboo)
Window at stove (fixed pane - doesn't open)
Reinforced walls in wardrobe cabinet
Solar ready (but Im not sure where the wires are)
Exterior shower
Additional 12V outlet
Extra insulation and dual pane windows
Storage box in front
Equalizer hitch

Added by previous owner:
110W portable solar using a Morningstar MPPT controller and BM-1 current monitor
Additional 12V outlet (including an external one)
Added additional LED light above dinette with a dimmer
Piezo starter for stove burners (no matches needed)
Baffling in fridge compartment for better cooling
Added shelves in wardrobe cabinet along with LED lighting
Accumulator at water pump
Replaced wire from battery to power converter box with #8 marine wire
New 15 tires and rims (including spare) in April 2017
LED on water heater to indicate heater is on (vs the existing light which indicates that it is igniting)

Recent upgrades by me:
New (last month) Dometic 3-way fridge
New AC installed at Escape in Chilliwack (frame recall work done at the same time)
Custom interior finishes including denim fabric, bamboo counters, galvanized panels for magnets, photos, etc, chalkboard door, galvanized-look backsplash)
New water pump last October
New 6 volt batteries
Rain Gutters over door and slider window
Roof vents replace (with the exception of the Maxx Fan but resealed to Maxx Fan vent with Proflex)
Additional USB charging ports installed

We are currently in Texas and heading across the South to Florida, then the Carolinas and back across the central US to be back in CA at the end of May. If this looks interesting to you, PM me and we'll see if we can arrange a meeting.

Here are links to a few videos showing the trailer and upgrades!

Saw your videos, and we are interested in your 17B. We are located in Humboldt County, CA. We will be travelling out of the area on May 21 until mid-June, so if you get back here before then with the trailer still attached (!!) we would like to see it. If you still have the trailer when we return, and you are still in the northern CA area, we would like to see it in mid-June.

Thanks, George

This reminds me of me coming back from Chilliwack having ordered our 21 and posting our 17B. Sold after we got home from a Fiberglass RV forum ad. Hopefully you are posting there as well as Craigslist.

Thanks, Sherm2954. Looks like our first opportunity to see the trailer will be mid-June. Will check in with you then to see if it is still available.

BTW, if you have any interest in archaeology and/or pre-European human history, check out the Chaco Culture Nat'l Historic Park in the NW corner of New Mexico on your way west. It's off the beaten path, but well worth the visit--but bring food, as there is drinking water available, but no food or electricity at the Park.

Safe travels, George
