Re: Damaged Escape 19 For Sale

Unfortunate what happened to the Escape 19. The damage seems to be the front end and that is the smallest and grainiest photo. I cannot tell from the poor photo if the front fiberglass is cracked or just scratched.

Appears that the fresh water tank was ripped off and the cabinet drawers are missing. I might be a bit concerned about the frame, definite damage in the rear and perhaps more on the front. After that it is just conjecture.

No inside photo with the front end, would guess that was where the most damage occurred.

Re: Damaged Escape 19 For Sale

So, the insurance company wrote it off, since this seller got it from them.

In other words, the insurance company determined that it would cost more to repair than to replace.

A picture is worth 7 cents.

Here is a better photo of the front.

This should be better. Quality of the photo is questionable.

Re: Damaged Escape 19 For Sale

Hi: All...YIKES!!! Too bad the area of worst damage is the poorest pic. Looks like a lot of frame damage also. Not my idea of a fixer upper. Alf

Re: Damaged Escape 19 For Sale

Could this be the trailer that Reace wrote about some months back which rolled?

Re: Damaged Escape 19 For Sale

Here's more info regarding this trailer. Someone posted a response to the Craigslist ad. It certainly sounds like the same one that Reace posted about rolling.

"This trailer did NOT just sustain minor damage; this trailer, as well as its tow vehicle, ROLLED. Plus, if this trailer's been out in the rain this week, the water damage has gotten into the insulation.

Massive torsion damage to this trailer, frame is shot, check out the axles, and why haven't they posted pics of the inside front interior? Because it's demolished.

This salvage dealer bit off more than he can chew and is trying to pass off his problem. Escape trailers are FANTASTIC, but unless you know what you're getting into...beware."

Re: Damaged Escape 19 For Sale

I would have expected it to look a whole lot worse if it were rolled. Unless it only rolled onto one side (gently), the awning isn't even all out of shape and the arms are still attached. Tough bugger.

Re: Damaged Escape 19 For Sale

Look in the background of the seventh picture down in the Craigslist post. It appears to be a 5th wheel (not an Escape) which burned, and the fire appears to have occurred in the propane-storage bay. Kinda scary.
