Purchasing a new Escape can be a significant exercise in "patience" and planning....all the while those "off the shelf" trailers are calling to you! Pretty similar to the goddess of cheeseburgers beckoning to you while hiking the Muir trail.
.......The more things stay the same! We did the John Muir Trail in 2003 and from the 3rd day out that's all we talked about; A cheeseburger and a six-pack at The Whitney Portal !!

I like the way Escape does it (where the buyers provide the names of folks whose trailers they've seen), vs. the Casita version, where the show off sends in the info of the people who have been shown. I showed our Casita several times when it was newer, but never felt it appropriate to have someone fill out a card. I was just happy to show our trailer, and figured that most lookers were just curious - not seriously in the market for a new one.

I give an Escape business card with my name on it to the person who is interested in the trailer.
I don't ask them for any information.
They will either remember to tell ETI that they visited my trailer, or they won't.
I have no expectations.

Exactly. The check is just a nice bonus. I've probably given a tour of our trailer many dozens of times, but I don't expect more than a handful to ever purchase.
