Is our Escape 21' a 2015 or 2016?

We picked up Escape 21' on January, 2016. The identification VIN plaque on the trailer says December, 2015. We have not seen the title yet as we are on the road. What actual year is our trailer? Is it when it is completely built and when we picked it up?

2015 if that's what the VIN says

I would say you've got a 2015 if that's what the vin indicates. Probably was completed in Dec. Did they gave you the 2015 pricing.

Guess we should have waited until the trailer was built as a 2016. H-m-m, it wasn't available in 2015, had to wait until 2016 to pick up a 2015 trailer. We are disappointed about this, but it is what it is.

Our original pickup date was December 28 2014 and Tammy specifically told me it would be a 2015 trailer. We ended up with an earlier date in September so it is a 2014. I would be surprised if your title didn't say 2016.

Verry interestink!

I would bet it is likely a 2016. How many people are getting 2017 models built in 2016? Same with vehicles having a manufacturing date in one year, yet it is a model designed for the next.

In the end it really does not matter a lot, as there really was very little difference between the two years.

edit: or what Ross said.

I'm with Charlie. You could have picked up the trailer in 2015. The only thing that can start later is the warranty and that starts on the date you pickup the trailer or it's delivered.

Escape's model changes in December, historically. Anything made after November should be the next years model. Mine was made 12/2013- it was a 2014 model. Thus the op's should be a 2016 model. Now for the current batch, price will determine year.

OK, I decided to call Escape and they said that even though the mfg date was 2015, all the import documents and Bill of Sale say 2016. It only makes a difference if, or when, (horrid thought) we sell, knowing what year to advertise. Happy to clear this up! But food got thought for other buyers caught in the same situation.

Donna, they told us it wasn't ready until 2016 so we never questioned it.
