15' Model.....Delayed

I know this is not good news for some.....but we have tentatively put the 15' model on hold.

We are currently in the middle of building new molds for the 13' and 17' trailers at our fiberglass facility while the 19' plug is slowly taking shape at the main shop.

The 13' and 17' molds will be completed by the end of December at which time we will begin production on both units. We will also (hopefully) be in the finishing stages of the 19' plug.....putting completion of the molds late January (again....fingers crossed).

As our timeline constantly changes, we are slowly pushing further into spring production. With growing demand for the 13' and 19', and still a lot to do.....we have made the decision to delay the 15' until late 2009.

I hope those waiting for the 15' will understand. It is definetely coming.....I'm just not ready to promise when.....yet.

Reace

Sounds like a wise decision, Reece.

Understandable Reace, I only know too well about production schedules, and all the factors that can vary time lines.

You are definitely the not the only one pondering on what extras to install. The best thing is that Escape is actually willing to do this.

Re: 15' Model.....Delayed

We'll see the 13' in production and then figure out things from there---at least we only live an hour away from the shop..... That makes it easy!!!!!

I keep looking and planning and then changing my mind.....we are so fortunate that Reace and Tammy are willing to make these trailers suit each owner...

I know the great work they did on our old Boler---so getting a brand new trailer that is all their design----yup---worth waiting for!!!!!

Re: 15' Model.....Delayed

Is the change to accommodate the roof air? 
I'm sure that those wanting a 15' will be a bit disappointed, but given the quality and the features plus the willingness to adapt some features for personal preference makes the waiting worthwhile!

Re: 15' Model.....Delayed

All of the Escape trailers will now accept a roofmount A/C. The 17' mold was also quite damaged in the summer when a part stuck which let to the decision to make a new mold with some minor updates.
