Best Seller?

Curious as to which trailer is Escape's biggest seller? Also, any idea on how many trailers they manufacture each year? No particular reason, just wondering.

Hi: Hilola... I'd bet on the 19'er. I think that trailer is positioned to be towed by the largest segment of tugs available. Alf

Every year since I first heard about Escapes, I've wondered at the answer to that question, as have many on the forum. For a while on the forum, people were even trying to compare VIN numbers to figure it out. Tammy's the one who knows, and as far as I can determine, she steadfastly gives no clues to how her and Reace's business model is working.


My guess: they used to be at about 200/year. Now, with the third building in operation, I'm guessing close to 300/year. Best seller order (again my guess): 19, 5TA, 21, then the best of all (but least in #), the 17. and of those, there are the few, the proud, the 1%'ers, the A-Listers: the 17A's!!

I'd say, historically the 19 since it has been around the longest, but current 2ndG models seem to be a tossup between the 21 and the 5.0, that is my vote. So we want a poll?

Is every trailer entered on the map? They’re color coded, so that may be a quick way to check.

And you know, Don, though OUR model may be the least popular, it remains the most authentically Canadian of all the ETI trailers. It’s a 17,EH!

I've seen a lot more 21's than I have 5.0 or 19s

Well put Don! The 17 A-listers are the very best and well recognized by those with very a discriminating ability to recognize PERFECTION! If the 'others' hadn't bought another form of Escape, I'd feel sorry for them …. ya know.

If I had to do it all over again …. the only thing I'd change is the color of my graphics. Now there is a statement for satisfaction.


We should plan a 17A reunion!
