Talking Escape colours

Hi fellow escapees, does anyone out there have an Escape trailer with an Olive or Kelly green colour choice, or any other green colour choice, if so, would you please share some photos ? Thanks.

i'd have to look up Kelly Green, but there's no point since how the colours appear in a picture depends if the trailer is in sunlight or shade, time of day, the camera and it's user and your computer monitor.
Eg. Black Forest Green on my trailer. Overcast and sun side.
Tilt your monitor to change further.

We have a fairly vibrant green (Iguana Green). I’ll work on pics for you later. FWIW, when we picked up our trailer, several ETI employees told us Iguana Green was their favorite color, partly as it’s rarely picked, as it’s a tad too audacious for all but the boldest ;-)

There are dozens of green colour charts online. Just Google.

I love this! We chickened out and got Battleship gray I plan on adding this color in someway once our unit is home.

Yeah, but doesn't mean any color green is available in decals from ETI.


I'm not even certain this is the latest color chart ETI is using for decals. But, it's what I have.

When I ordered my 17, I asked Avery for samples of all the reds. They sent a bunch of 2" X 3" pieces of the actual material, which, unless you have a calibrated monitor, and controlled lighting for the photo, is about the only way to be sure of the color.

My brother and I have 21'ers currently being built. We went to our local Fellers vinyl wrap supply (they're a national company) and they had a Avery Dennison 700 HP film sample book. We were able to select the exact colors we were looking for.
Good Luck!

+1 If the color is important to you get samples!!!

Current Escape decal graphics

The current graphics are a different series than what Donna posted. Below is a link to the color graphic chart I received from ETI on Dec 1, 2018. (750 series)

I will second the advice to get color samples or visit the ETI factory. Our color choice changed when we were in Chilliwack and could see the samples in person.

(#960 Teracotta is our "subtle" color choice. )

Here is a link to the AveryDennison Graphics website color chart.

Our 2018 E19 w/Forest Green graphics

We chose Forest Green for our E19, completed last May (build sheet signed late February 2018). We didn't have a tow vehicle at the time but if we had we might have tried to match the color of that. That said, the green and gray work for us.

Two pics: Nearing completion and at after its first night out (in Washington state).

Compare your forest green with my ( black ) forest green in post #2.

I agree that it is quite difficult to accurately assess colors and differences between colors in digital images given the number of variables that come into play (monitor settings, lighting, viewing angle, etc.), and I second the recommendation that if color is important to you that it is best to view actual samples rather than digital images.

gbaglo: In comparing the two greens, I'd say that they are different and that yours is closer to the Dark Green on the 700 chart than to the Forest Green. Neither of ours is close to the Kelly or Iguana greens, but who knows....

[For what it is worth, we selected the Forest Green from the color chart that Donna shared in post #8 and not from what I take to be the newer (and the current) color chart in post #13 (by arniesea), though the Forest Greens look to be very similar on the two charts.]

I'm trying to upload a photo of our trailer, picking it up on the 22cd. It's "apple green". Looks similar to the iguana green photo I think.

colour choices

Many thanks to everyone that helped us with our colour choice(s) We decided to go with the Olive Green (HP750-765-0) as per colour samples from Avery, and are just in the process of finalizing our build sheet for our 17B. This may be a loaded question or comment but ..... any tips ?

You might get more input if you start a new thread because people might not see your question under Colors. I’ve asked the same question lately (see Necessary Options) and It is just coming up on I Wish I Had so check there too. I think I had something under my brief account with sign in Ellie when my Lisa M. quit working for a short while. Can’t quite check on all at once. Good luck, Exciting! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

I think it's easy to obsess about color. Obsessing is not a bad thing, but we simply chose the green because we didn't want the Escape to look exactly like our beloved Scamp. And green looks good in the woods! Came out nice. It's a bright enough green to look green, but not like a poison frog. My lovely partner reminds me that we looked again at Forest Green but decided it wouldn't show up well, and picked a mid-value green. All comes down to taste. We went with standard counter-tops and floor, but really hated the generic upholstery and found a tweedy brick red, almost a solid, which we really loved, even after more than 15 weeks in Towed Hall since we picked up last July. Many of those weeks cooped up in rain.

The exterior of Towed Hall got so dirty so often, on all those dirt roads, that the color of the lettering hardly mattered!

Enjoy the going!
