Escape Sport...by another company

This might be old news that I missed while we were away camping. But here is another Escape that people inquiring may confuse with our Escapes.

Looks suspiciously like an Armadillo Backpack. Interesting.

Hi: Eggscape... Looks to me like they're using up bits and bobs leftover from Airstream Nests production. Alf

Looks like they got the front window from the same source as Airstream.

The "Escape" name is used for several trailer models, but it seems particularly idiotic to name the company "Escape" given the existence of another company which has been using the name for two decades.

The details of the shape are not those of a Boler 1300, or any of the trailers copied from it (including the Armadillo).

The Airstream Nest wrap-around front window has a bump up in the lower edge (the "ski goggle" look shared with many Chrysler tail lamps) which is not on this trailer.

That galley counter with the single round electric cooking element and oddly shaped sink is... interesting, and likely designed by someone who has never used an RV.

Yeah it looks like a cross between an Airstream Nest and an Armadillo, nice looking though!

The Nest is unfortunately no longer sold.

Brian if you look again I think you might see the bump up. Not exactly the same in height, but the bump up is similar between the two imo. However the window is definitely not the same curvature.

Sure enough, it does! I'll blame the reflections for missing it. But at least they are not the same window.

I have said, if Escape doesn't build the smaller trailers, someone else will. Building smaller trailers starts brand loyalty which is important as people upgrade. Who owns just one Escape.

There is only about 12” difference from this and an Escape 17.

Like I have pointed out before, many of theses small trailers you pay a premium for. You really have to want a small trailer.
Example: they say this trailer was available starting at a price $800 more than an Escape 17B.
Even if Escape could make a smaller trailer with bathroom for $800 cheaper than a 17B...would it sell? They originally had to drop their small model because the price to make it was so close to the 17.

A great pole would be...

If Escape was to make 15 foot model...would you pay the same amount for the same options as a 17.

Escape, under Reace and Tammy, did indeed make a 15, and a 13. They stopped because it takes as much manufacturing time, the same amount of features and appliances, and almost the same amount of other materials, to make a smaller version of the 17, and it's actually more difficult to cram the features into a smaller space.

There are several manufacturers building smaller molded fiberglass trailers. Armadillo and Outback (Trillium mold) for example, along with the more familiar Casita and Scamp. Those manufacturers seem to be making fine trailers and serving markets that Escape isn't. Escape is fitting in nicely between them and Bigfoot, who builds even larger models, and doing well - just look at the backlog. The 5.0TA is in a class of its own, and Escape could probably survive just fine building only that model.

I would rather Escape focus on improving their processes and make sure they are building the best damn 17ft - 23ft trailers in the world more than focus on serving as many markets as they can. But maybe they can do both...

Exactly.

In 2016, the "Escape Sport" looked like this

A Google search revealed an article from 2016 about the Escape Sport.
https://hiconsumption.com/escape-sport-camper-trailer

It seems that the builder has been considering the concept for a while. I believe that the builder also makes 'tiny houses'. The 2016 prototype of the Escape Sport should not be towed by the faint of heart!

It has been fun to explore this thread.
