Why do all Escape's look the same?

Should Escape have model years and or special models? I saw a Texas edition. How about a Harley Edition, Pacific NW, Canadian Goose edition, etc. Something to think about. For the 21 how about a new decal making it look different from the rest.

Because they, and their owners are perfect, just the way they are.

Hi: FTTRV2010... There's just something about "Timeless Elegance" that speaks for itself!!! No need to change the molds every year. That would just introduce built in obsolescence.
Would Ford change the blue oval...or Chev the bow tie Alf

I suppose there all sorts of different ideas as to what looks good, I personally find that the clean simple looks of most of the Escape trailers is very nice. I find when I see all the stick trailers with all their gawdy tacky decals with all sorts of "mural" decals I laugh a little and really apreciate the clean good looks of our 19Ft

I kind-of like some of the bright paint jobs that some of the people have given their reconditioned older fiberglass trailers.

Agreed ... those big murals make us think commercial vehicle - like the rentals ..... just the name " Escape " makes it unique - and the name is so appropriate .....

Why do all Airstreams look the same? Why do All Bigfoot's look alike? Actually the question is more of a rhetorical thought than the seeking of an answer.

Of all the current molded manufacturers, Escape has the widest range of customer options, from decals to flooring to upholstery to countertops. I don't think I've ever seen two exactly the same. So while you may see one coming at you across the freeway at 60 mph and it looks just like the one you're towing, it's not. :

Since all the big rigs have names that make them sound light, such as "featherweight and ultra-light"' perhaps we should add decals that make our trailers sound big. How about "big daddy(or mamma)" or "heavy duty"? I'm just kidding, I too like the clean simple lines.

On that note maybe we can get decals for our Escapes that will some how say "no seriously its light BUT well built " , its seems like all the stick trailers that some how depict light in their names fail to inform that they are also built like crap. and oh ya they leak too! Sorry about that little rant but I am still a little tender about our last trailer.

Hi: All...I've said it before and I'll say it again. There is a family resemblance. Now it's a corporate identity!!!
The stripes have a very stylized ETabout them and I like it!!! Alf

Escape Trailers are clean and sleek. No two Bigfoot's are the same inside either. But Reace is the only CEO of a Trailer manufacturing company who wears a tool belt on the assembly line and he does Service work to boot. I enjoyed the special ordered 19ft we used for over 49 nights. I hope the new owners use it and like it as we did.

I've heard that other manufacturers offer pretty much off-the-shelf products - not much room for customization. The Escape folks are so accomodating and their customers so creative, that any model designations or trim styles might lose their distinction quickly amid all the owner customizations.

Hi: Hokie Escape...Tuck in, for the long winters nap, is next weekend.
We had a great trip to Ky. and Tenn. this past spring and another thru the Maritime's again this summer. We are planing on the rally in Townsend Tenn. again in Apr 2013 with an extension further south thru Ga. into Fla. Just might drop by to say hi and take you away to Robins for burgers.
Thanks for the comp. We get some pretty wild stares where ever we go with our rig!!! Why one of the campers at Townsend this year said our rig looked "Majestic" when we towed in!!!
By the end of 2013 I should be retired so we won't be constrained by time...only money. LoL Alf
