I have been blown away at the resale prices people get for the used Escapes

A most excellent point. I figure that if I do this right the first time, it will be the last trailer I'll ever own. Then my son can worry about resale value...

Reading the escape forums can only take you so far. I think if you see one in person the quality will be apparent. I like when you call or talk to escape you don't get a salesperson. Then if you read back over the years you can see Reace and Tammy really do take care of their customers. But then again, if you go to a Casita forum the owners will tell you how wonderful a Casita is. Good luck on your search.

Hi Bart,

We had a Casita 17SD for over four years. It was a good trailer. We went to Alaska in 2010 in the Casita and it was a bit small for such a long trip. I had always wanted the Escape 5.0, which we have now. Another Alaska trip in 2012 with the Escape was great (good vs great).

The best part of owning the Escape, besides the quality, is the customization. When you pick up the trailer, it feels like home right away. Casita could care less what you want. It comes with very few options. Any Escape model you purchase will be great. Tammy and Reace will make sure of it. Their focus is customer service and you get it. Good luck. :-)

We're also Casita owners and buying an Escape 19'. We're keeping the Casita though at least for awhile. It's tough and very rugged which makes it ideal for primitive campgrounds where we don't want to take our new rig. Yeah, the Casita factory won't customize but heck, I enjoy doing it and think it's why many are so loyal to the Casitas!

Greggo, I have pulled my 19 on many a dirt or gravel road. I do take it easy on the real rough stuff, but other than jostling around stuff inside have had no problem at all because of the roads.
