New escape colors

[img]A few weeks back I was up at the escape factory and Reese said they were changing the colors of the faboric and lanoleum, at least for the 19' modelings, not sure if this applies to all models though, but I would assume so. Anyways, Reece showed me a 19' foot that was being built with the new colors, so I snapped a few pictures so others could see...

Re: New escape colors

I like the laminate colour, the fabric not so much. But that is what is great about buying an Escape, that we could supply both, as everyone has different tastes.

Re: New escape colors

I agree, the laminate color is nice. I am also not that sure about the fabrics, but I chose my own anyways. I wonder what color laminate the already ordered and currently build 17' will get. I certainly wouldn't mind getting the new style! Maybe Reace or Tammy can fill us in on which models will get what.

Re: New escape colors

I would echo previous comments about the fabric, seems a bit dated to me. Simple solid colors have a longer "lifespan".

The countertop might be OK. I was a bit perturbed by the lighter color edging on the countertop. Second it is hard to get a good grasp from a photo. No offense GoCougsKev, thank you for the posting and accompaning information.

Re: New escape colors

I'm supprised there isn't a couple fabric patterns/colours to choose from. I agree the proposed patterned fabric is a little hard on the eyes.

Re: New escape colors

Hi All,

We have had to recently change our fabric however, the photo isn't a great one. Anyone that has seen the fabric up to this point has really liked it. It is darker than our previous one but still very much earth tones, brown, green and beige. The edging is beige, not white. I will be taking some photos shortly to update the website photos and hopefully I will have videos done and uploaded before Christmas.

Also the arborite shown in the photo is not the correct one, I will also be updating these photos within the next week or so.

Reace and I are away next week so any patience will be greatly apprecitated until we get back.

Tammy

Solid colors also show stains. A wild non-repeat pattern with multiple colors actually hide stains, etc. I have cushions that are solid brown on one side and tan on the other (ICK) other than being the color of dirt neither really help in the stain department. But, this is a camping trailer and spills do happen. Whatever fabric is used, I think it's best to plan ahead when new and that's using ScotchGuard spray or other fabric protector on the cushions.

YMMV

Re: New escape colors

We just went to bed bath & beyond and got a couple "Large" towels that match the seat cushions in decor. They are big enough in width to wrap under the cushion and stay in place and long enough to cover the seating area.. After a couple of trips we just wash them.. works out perfectly..

Re: New escape colors

I liked the color of the fabric in the first photos, kinda reminds me of particle board!

I'm hoping Keath will post since he has the qualifications. He owns a corporate interior design firm. They design restaurants, offices, casinos etc. He has advised me NOT to use Scotchguard. "Might as well spray gum on the fabric". I gather that it may protect the fabric from stains, but also attracts dirt. Hopefully, he will respond with a complete answer.

Re: New escape colors

Yeah hope he posts. Personally I've had good luck with it. Perhaps the difference as a home consumer I'm more inclined to quickly get after the spill... after all, I own the cushions, carpet, etc. where an employee, customer would wait for someone else to clean it up and the delay is what causes the problems?

Oh Keith, we need your counsel....

Re: New escape colors


Keath's too busy doing useful things, like reading books and such. He may yet post. But this is what I got from him so far:

"I'll check with some of my fabric reps to get an update. I understand 3M is soon removing the product from market because it doesn't break down and is finding it's way into the water table and mothers milk, etc. Not a nice chemical."

Re: New escape colors

Hi Folks
Bags thinks I should get in on the Scotch Gaurd thing - so here goes.
First off I'm not a chemist but I am concerned personally and corporately about the environment and I like to spend my money wisley [ why else would I invest in an Escape?] so the following is my personal opinion.
After over 34 years in the design business I have been counselled on numerous occasions to not apply a stain resistant chemincal - namely 3M Scotch Gaurd and others to fabric or carpet. I've just checked with the manufacture reps for Crown fabrics and Maharam fabrics [big guys] and they both agree. Choose your fabric wisely according to the wear expectancy and use, spot clean and wash.
Scotch Gaurd is a surface chemical application and I'm told that it is not friendly. If it is applied by the handyman there is a distinct possability that it's application will not be uniform and where it goes on thick can attract soil rather than repel.
If it's applied professionally some are suspected of watering down the application to save bucks and so you might get an inferior application - waste of money.
Think about the fact that you will be sitting on this chemical, perhaps in shorts or bathing suit - exposinga the largest organ of the body in direct contact and I gaurantee you'll pick up the stuff - not good!
There is a global push to be environmentally conscious on many levels - do what you can - reduce your footprint.
There are bullet proof fabrics out there, stain resistant fabrics and high wear fabrics.
The other thing is to really think about how much the upholstry is actually going to be exposed to wear and soil - I'd suggest that a travel trailer is pretty low use. Choose a fairly bold pattern with multiple colours to hide stains - the covers are removable and so can be washed when required.
I wouldn't do it - I'm just saying...

Re: New escape colors

Hi: Keath... I'M RIGHT!!! I feel like the guy in the Scotia bank commercial. WooHoo!!! We just bought a sofabed/ sectional sofa from IKEA and my wife wanted to spray 2 cans of Scotch Guard on it and I said why It's only the two of us using it and it's in the den, so she returned the stuff to Wally Mart. WOOHOO I'M RIGHT!!! Alf

Re: New escape colors

Thanks Keath and to think at one time I used cans and cans and cans of ScotchGuard on jeans, gloves and coats... back in the day when I was a downhill skier. Probably inhaled a couple of cans worth too. Lesson learned late, but learned never-the-less!

Re: New escape colors

Interesting about the scotchguard, i have heard about this before. I used to use it on my dry flies to keep them floating! Not any more though!
Q. Is "Diamond kote" the same thing? It sounds like it. That's the stuff dealers want to sell you on a new vehicle/RV.
