2009 was when the 19 came out, an it was very popular. Escape was putting out trailers as fast as production would allow, given their facilities at the time.

Proof that if you produce something people want, and you do it well, you'll weather any recession - even one that's supposed to affect "nonessential" items like a trailer.

I wouldn't be surprised the favorable exchange rate for those of us south of the boarder isn't the reason.

Sept. 8, 2015: Well, it happened. ETI took 2016 orders from late May to early September, and they're booked solid (not surprising at all).

Escape production

Good news for all who got their order in. What a great success story we are seeing here. If you were at the 2015 Osoyoos rally and heard Reace narrate the Paul Harvey version of the history of the company, you feel very good for these fine people and the great product they are producing. Keep up the great work.

As I mentioned earlier in this thread, it will make little difference anyway whether you got the last of the 2016 orders, as all you need to do is be one of the first up next year for the 2017 orders, and you will be next in line for early 2017. Production doesn't stop, just the orders.

My brother on the weekend was telling folks about the fact that he is set to get a 19 on December 9th. They were a bit surprised when he added 2016.
