It would be 1,000 trailers. But I am not sure if they should be lined up lengthwise, sideways, in a circle, or randomly. I do know they should not be stacked on top of each other.

If we took 19' as an average then that would be 19,000' or 3.6 miles or for the other 99% of the world; 5719 meters or 5.8 kilometers

Any way you slice it, pretty impressive.

A slightly off kilter fact:

1000 Escapes with an average length of 17'0" would make a line just over 5km long. Which is the approximate distance of ETI world headquarters to the major shopping mall area to the east. Aka Lickman to Vedder roads.



Ok, Ron beat me to it ... I was fighting google.

And if they did circle them the diameter would be 1.145 miles!

Hi: All... It shouldn't matter how many trailers Escape has built. As long as the one they build for you... is the best they can do!!! Congrats to ETI on your 1000th unit. Alf

WAIT a minute. Canada is metric - right?

What is with this Escape numbering scheme - I do believe it is expressed in FEET!!!!

And can Canadians catch 2 foot-itis?

OK, now I have an excuse from going from a Scamp 13 to an Escape 19, I got confused in the metric conversion.

Glenn, thanks for posting that, I'd never paid any attention that it was there. Tammy told me some of the story when we picked up the trailer, but it's fun to read the whole story.

Are we talking about the map? It shows only three non-metric countries: U.S.A., Liberia, and Burma - as shown in text labels (no label for Alaska). All bits of the US are coloured to match - I suppose Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands are all pink if you can make them out in the map's resolution; they're not separate countries either.

How did we get from Escape History to metric system use? Don't answer that...
