From The Great Escape
The bread-and-butter trailers for the company are its 19- and 21-foot travel trailers, although the 13- and 17-footers are still popular models in the lineup.
Not likely, since the 13 Foot
is long out of production. The 15 Foot was in production more recently, but it too is no longer offered, so with zero sales possible it can't be considered "popular". Where do they get this stuff?
They list the GAWR
as 2300 pounds, but that would be for only one axle... and even then I'm pretty sure it's the 19 Foot spec; the 21 Foot is higher, and the actual 5.0TA GAWR is more likely 3500 pounds... but who knows, maybe they're right and Reace spec'd a softer spring pack for better suspension behaviour. Given the other glitches, I'm guessing it's just wrong.
The fifth-wheel is well insulated using foam panels before installing the cabinetry and vinyl headliner and wall covering...
Umm.. no. The insulation
under the liner is Reflectix, which isn't foam at all (or a panel).
On the more positive side...
Weight (freshwater, water heater, LP-gas full; no cargo) 4,390 lbs
Cargo Carrying Cap. 1,110 lbs
For these weights
it seems that they have either weighed the test trailer (which would be good), or added 40 pounds (propane) and the calculated weight of 28+6 US gallons of water (34x8=272 lb) plus the $3,612 worth of options to the spec dry weight; 3,700+40+272 is too low, so it can't be just dry spec plus fluids. Is Escape putting a weight and cargo capacity placard in the trailer now which reflects the actual as-equipped weight? Listing Cargo Carrying Capacity this way (available room to GVWR with full freshwater and fuel) is an industry standard.
I think they captured the Escape themes of quality and fitting the customer's needs well.
I finally bought a copy today, then got home and saw this link. Arggh
