Production Schedule

I was looking at the production schedule for new Escape trailers and was wondering if there is more than one cycle each year? For instance, the current schedule shows all trailers being produced in November and December but that could present a problem taking delivery during those months, depending on weather.

Are these the only months Escape produces trailers?

Production Schedule
I think what they're showing is the NEXT production schedule, in other words the next time you would be able to purchase one. Escape builds these trailers all year, as far as I can see, but you have to get a deposit in to get a spot because they only build a fixed number each cycle. I ordered my 19 in May and it will be ready for pick up in August 15. Escape will store them up to 3 months at no charge, and longer than that with a nominal charge, if you're hesitant about getting in on the Nov/Dec build window. If you want to wait until next spring or summer, I would just ask to be put on the next build window.

Yes, they build year round and the date shown is the next available date. If you don't want to store the trailer until warm weather, they will deliver for $2.25 (Canadian) per mile...

Thanks for your responses. Not ready to buy as yet so have contacted EFI to find out when their next two production cycles are. Since I'm a wimpy Californian, don't want to do a pick up in late Fall, lol!


Not to mention, still need to buy a tow vehicle once we figure out what trailer we will be getting.

I my opinion they do not do production cycles as they build all the time and can’t keep up to demand. It is more next spot available for that model ...next served/reserved. You can keep an eye on production and when the month arrives you want, put in your order. OR like you said give them a call and they may hold a date just for you. Personally the dates right now are getting close to snow on the roads depending on the model and it is a gamble for them being dry. If you want clear roads I would hold off to a May pickup date and come to the Escape appreciation camp out in BC near the end of the month. Usually brings about 140 Escape trailers together...something not to miss if you are driving all this way.
Good luck on your selection...we are all here to help.

Great idea, hadn't considered the rally! Where is it held?

Normally the 3rd week in May, we plan on picking up our new 21 at Chilliwack and then driving over to Osoyoos. The nice thing is Reace and Co. will be present and if there are any little issue with the unit, more than likely he can fix it for you.It is a beautiful CG in beautiful country....in beautiful British Columbia. Also you can get your poutine fix while there also...

The "Suite Escape" was ready in the very early spring and I don't drive in snow, so they kept it for me until I was sure that would not be an issue.
