Doug, so sorry to hear you dislike your trailer as much as its appears you do, as to me from this post and others it seems you are unhappy with what Escape offers. Our experience has been just the opposite. We have enjoyed our trailer a lot, and the features built in to it. Is it perfect, no, but it sure is close and I am more than willing to make a few personal changes myself. To me it would seem that you should have another type of trailer, something not in the lightweight fiberglass family. Not everyone wants to use a truck with capacity to haul a much heavier trailer. Maybe a Bigfoot might suit your needs better. A great trailer, but at an higher cost(new) and a fair bit heavier.
Not certain what you are talking about regarding the table, but we consider ours a proper table that serves us well while eating and traveling.
We primarily boondock, probably 90% of the time to date, though in the future do hope to do extended travels where we will be in campgrounds a bit more. We have never had an issue with our axles, or clearance. I don't see any need to add more weight or capacity to the trailer. Pretty certain most Escape owners are not hauling moose in their trailer too.
One of the best features I find, is the storage hatch to access under the bed storage, in fact I even enlarged ours, as others have done too. This is invaluable for access the things like chocks, blocks, gas hoses, chairs, tables, bocce balls, electrical cords, Frisbees, etc. For us, one of the most valuable assets the trailer possesses.
Even through all the bouncing we have given the trailer, we have not had an issue with the drawer slides. If you are referring to the thin plywood gable that is a separator, we had the one to the left in the bottom cabinet shake loose. A quick fix with some screws. The staples used are definitely not the best thing to use, but is what is commonly used by all manufacturers. Again, I did shake the living crap out of the trailer when it happened, travelling quite a ways on an uphill road full of ruts and washboard, and I tend to drive a bit aggressively too.
In almost four years, we have never had a hinges fail. If you really want, it is a cheap fix to replace them.
A ceiling light would be nice, I see that they are now offering that.
Really unsure again what you are referring to about the screen not fitting the emergency exit window. Ours seems to fit fine, and seeing it it the one at our heads while we sleep, it is the most commonly used one in the trailer.
We have the original stabilizers installed, and find them more than adequate for their intended use. I feel the heavy, over sized scissor jacks would be huge overkill. Way beyond the realm of a lightweight trailer. So far in almost four years of use, I have only had to service the axles a times, to do maintenance on the bearings once, and to adjust the brakes 3 times. A scissor jack from our tow vehicle worked great for this use, and I didn't have to lug around oversized jacks permanently mounted to the trailer.
I do like the Max Fan too.
We have the coax cable connection on the trailer, and have only used it once, but options like this are more based on how you camp, and we just don't seem to ever want to watch TV.
We too had an issue with the fridge on AC, but an easy thermostat replacement has had it working flawlessly since. Keeps the beer and ice cream at a nice temp.
We are loving our Escape 19. Yes, there are changes we would make, but overall it is one great unit.
I do realize that we all have different needs and expectations for our trailering needs, but the Escape 19 seems to suit ours really well.
