Looking for 2010 or newer 17A or 19

Hello,

I'm located in Portland, OR but willing to travel to wherever if somebody has a 2010 or newer Escape 17A or 19 in good to excellent condition that they would like to sell.

I would like to have one for a west coast trek but see that all orders are full for 2016 and they aren't even taking deposits for the 2017 build outs yet.

Jim

Hello, I am no longer looking for the Escape 17A or 19. It turns out that upon more education I don't feel that my 2012 Toyota Highlander would make a appropriate tow vehicle due to its unibody. If I could delete the message thread I would.

Sorry,

Jim

Unibody is not an issue. Dozens, hundreds of Escapes being towed with unibody vehicles. I'm towing with a RAV4 and have for seven years. Last service I asked them to check the hitch receiver and they reported all is well.
However, let me know if you still want to delete.

Jim, I towed both the 19 and 21 Escape with a 2008 Highlander with the factory tow package - no problem.

It sounds like you've received something, but it wasn't education.
In multiple forums over several years I have never heard of a single incident in which a vehicle towing a trailer within its rated limits using a proper hitch had a structural problem... unibody or not.

I'm closing the thread.
OP can always repost.
