I found a nice Italian Restaurant not far from me and on the way out of town where Dave could pull his truck/trailer combo onto the large parking lot. I gave him some $$ and said dinner was on me. He seemed very pleased. I failed to do this the first delivery time, I guess I was too excited to even think about it back then, but now Dave and myself are on first name basis after him coming twice to my house.

Hi Jubal,
How did ETI handle your handle your cracking noise and the scratched vinyl floor?

Tammy expressed dismay but did not offer any resolution. She stated that ETI had never replaced a floor before and to wait to see if any other problems surfaced. I did not press the issue as we were primary care givers at the time without any resolution in the near future. Chilliwack is a long trip and purchasing from a business without any regional or national reps is the risk we take. I do not believe the problem with the table on the floor is the drivers fault but the trailer should not have been hauled on the trailer deck with the tongue low to the deck with Maxx fan vent open and the solar panel tilting towards the vent. Who is responsible? The trailers are hauled with most of the weight on the front axles.

Mark, did you get a deal from Escape for picking up in Goshen or did they charge you full freight? We're planning an East Coast trip (driving from Oregon) and that could work out well for us to pick up there on the way to South Carolina.

Hi Bob,
You are right about this "Chilliwack is a long trip and purchasing from a business without any regional or national reps is the risk we take" I have to say I thought about that for a couple of months before I placed my order with ETI what happens when something goes wrong.

Hi Charlie,
I was told by ETI there was two things that determine shipping cost one was having a full trailer with three Escape Trailer loaded on the truck going in the same direction. The other was cost per mile to your location.

Escape is only a 6 hour drive for us to pick up at the factory; logistics of our East Coast trip and timing make the Goshen Indiana pickup favorable if they'll be hauling trailers there free (or really cheap) when they make their pickups there.

I doubt you can pick up in Goshen, In for less than having it shipped to you in Oregon, even if it was the only unit being sent.

15 % of the trailer cost .... before or after tax.? Holy !...

Escape doesn't ship trailers for free and really cheap is totally subjective. I too am 6 hours from the factory. Living in Portland, OR there's no way I'd have a trailer shipped. I'd rather spend those funds on "options," which to me is a better use of the dollars. YMMV.

We talked to Tammy about what would happen if something needed fixing when we were still under warranty and were in NJ and she said that we could go to an RV place and have it done and Escape would pay.
