Glad I'm not a betting person! I would have lost. Thanks for letting us know. Knowledge is power.


I misread the first information. I thought you said you couldn't pick it up until after the first of the year, not that the trailer wasn't finished until then.

What the placard says about manufacture date and what the VIN says about year may not be the same thing. Cars are routinely identified by a "model year" which the next one after the year in which they are actually made, and I believe that the VIN shows the model year, not the manufacture date.

If you read the actual 17-character VIN, you can pick out the 10th digit - just before the "C068" (which means made in Chilliwack by Escape Trailer Industries). The 10th character should be "F" for 2015, and "G" for 2016.

By the way, the last three digits plus 1000 is the serial number of your trailer - a count of how many Escapes were made up to that point. Lots more detail about the VIN can be found in the thread Escape sighting?, in post #41 and post #44... and in the Wikipedia page for Vehicle identification number.

All Escape VINs appear to be
2E9TF6A2cyC068nnn
where
c is a check digit
y is the year code
nnn is the sequence (serial) number

Originally our 21 was scheduled for production in Feb. 2015, however ETI accelerated their manufacturing and completed it in Dec. 2014. Per the paper work from ETI it is a 2015 model. I assume this is due to the original scheduled completion date.

Not really, it is the actual completion date not the scheduled one. See #8
