What's the deal with the referral card? How much is it worth? Let's see...who can I say referred me?

It depends if they see another trailer then yours and they used exchange rate also so the check gets smaller being spit up . Pat

We looked at 4 different owner-owned trailers earlier this year and only one person gave us a referral card - the first trailer we looked at, which happened to be a 21'. The owner of the second trailer told us to not worry about a referral card for him and to let it go to the first one we saw. The other two folks never mentioned a card, so they might not have been handing them out.

Escape gives you cards with their contact info on it and you put your name on it. You hand them out when you show your trailer to someone and if they purchase and remember to hand in that card (or give the name to ETI, I guess), then at some point you'll get a check for $200 if yours was the only card turned in. You can turn in a maximum of 2 cards per trailer, so if someone else turns one in, you only get $100. Which is still nothing to sneeze at in my books.

Did you view any trailers in person? I think that's who the referral cards are for since they took the time to spiff up their trailer for you and took the time to talk to you.

Our check was only 75.00 because it was split and I was told the exchange rate a couple months ago . Pat

Haven't seen one in person yet. I know there is a 19 nearby and a 21 maybe a couple hundred miles away. Still need to set up a visit.

The referral cards are fine, but you can just give Escape a name and they'll put it on your build sheet. We had already decided to purchase, had our build sheet about completed and had even visited the factory before we sent them a referrer name. Steve and Cynthia in Boerne were nice enough to let us tour their trailer a month or two later, so they got the referral.

I've probably got about 12 referral cards out there, and no bonus yet, but that's not why I show the trailer anyway. If a bonus comes, that's just icing on the cake.

Wow, how cool. Congratulations! When I saw those openings I didn't figure they'd make the day. Wonder who got the other one?

I added the referral with my final final build sheet. Dave & Kathie (21) got the check.
