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 .....

Because they come from the same mold, why change it

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. :
