Ours was imported on Sept 21, 2015: last three #'s 188, therefore 1188 units as of the morning of 9/21/15.
Must have hit 1200 about Oct. 1.

Yes, because that was in the first thousand built, before the three digits ran out (and were wrapped back to 001).

And we were #35 back in January 2005.It was a 17 footer, no other models made.
And of course no website at the time.Small advertisement in the local Buy and Sell.
Went to the plant in the fall of 2004 and ordered one on the spot.

Thanks for posting Allan, your number 35 is a pretty solid anchor for early Escapes. I met a fellow at the rally in 2017 who drove in midday in a little white convertible. I think it was a Mercedes. He was looking for Reace and I told him where the Escape crew was camped, He was pretty impressed with the number and size of the Escapes there. He told me he bought,
and don’t quote me here, but I think he said “The third one Reace built.” I wish I could have talked to him longer but I sensed he was on a mission and wished him well and he drove away.
Thanks Again, Allan

Because this hit and miss exchange keeps our Escape Community tied together, gives us old geezers another thing to do in the winter, reminds us of additional anecdotes, and lets Escape do what they do and serve people with real questions. Some things a man or woman just gots to do for themselves. Evadell Brink was my English teacher 54 years ago. The ground is quaking in the cemetery cause sheís spinning like a top.

Sometimes it's satisfying just to solve a riddle. I wondered how the Escape VINs were constructed (having some familiarity with VINs for motor vehicles), and figured it out from the collection of VINs. The model description is really simplistic - there is no way to tell anything about the trailer configuration (options, etc) from the VIN, as it just indicates the width of the body shell (so all 17' and smaller are the same, and the 21' is the same as a 5.0TA).

So my first guess was to large. Glad you guys who know the history of escape have chimed in. I think the estimate of 2200 is probably accurate. That makes our trailers even more exclusive than I thought. Some other interesting numbers I looked up. As of 2015 Airstream was producing 2600 trailers a year, Jayco produces 50,000 RV units a year.

Thanks Glenn, we are rolling now. A lot of good camping nights in that rig of yours for sure.
Merry Christmas to Leslie and You.

#312 picked up by the original owner May 5, 2010. So comparing to your #204 from 2008 that is just over 100 trailers produced in almost 2 years. So it appears they were at an average rate of completion just over 1 per week. Comparing Allan's #35 from Jan. 2005 to yours would be 169 trailers in 3.5 years so averaging just under 1 per week in that time frame.

Then comparing to Pat's #792 in 2013 you can see they increased their rate to almost 3 per week. That average holds between Pat's and padlin in 2014. Then when comparing padlin to Don's in 2015 I get an average of about 4 per week.

Brian: Maybe you can check my numbers. They were nowhere near 1 per day in the early years. I do see as they got into 2015 they were finally approaching 1 per day.

When I die I want to go like my Grandpa did, quietly in my sleep.
Not screaming and crying like the passengers in his car.

When I die, my daughter says she is going to bury our Escape with me in it! I have to get all my modifications done before that.

Note to Karl...thinking of expanding the business...perhaps some nice waterproof boxes about 3 feet wide, 2 feet high and 7 feet long. Consecutively numbered of course.
