I want to thank you both, Reace and Tammy, for absolutely everything. My beautiful trailer is taking me to wonderful places and I'm creating a ton of great memories. Most of all I want to thank you for your kindness over the years. From the emails at 10pm, because I was having a problem, to the Sunday 2pm phone call... for a different problem. You both always made me feel like I was truly important. Absolutely stellar customer service. You're going to be a hard act to follow!

Please stay in touch. Not where we're following along in your back pocket, but it would be fun to hear you're (perhaps) becoming In-Laws to... (maybe) a grandbaby is on its way! I can be greedy. I met your girls when they were both in elementary school and now they're launched adults with their own careers.

I hope you find your retirement is everything you hoped for and it's very long and very healthy.

PS: Now that you have some time, perhaps you can come down to a NOG!?! THAT would be outstanding.

Donna I think your post was very moving as I know you know both Rease and Tammy well. It would be so exciting if they came to the fall NOG. They built a super company with a trailer I will love forever. I wish them the best life ever moving forward they earned it thru a lot of hard work and long hours, good for you guys. Now us lucky ones get to enjoy the results of your dedication.

Reace and Tammy,
You guys made a great trailer and built a great tribe of customers. Good luck with what sounds like a very active retirement

Reace and Tammy, new life in store

Nancy and I wish you all the happiness in your new challenges. Nearly 10 years ago I had another small trailer for a short time and we were very unhappy with it and planned to buy another that we had once owned and were happy with that one when a fellow from BC said I should check into Escape. I looked at Escape and talked to Tammy on the phone and its all history now, third trailer and each one was meant to be our last.
If you are in Tucson area, we'd be happy to visit or help any way we can. I could even move our 17 out of the way and offer a covered area with hook-ups.
Your friends, Jack and Nancy

Somewhat bittersweet news!! Happy for you, not so much for the rest of us!! We are really going to miss you but we get it. Retirement is wonderful and no two people deserve it more than you!! CONGRATULATIONS!

Thank you both for the absolutely wonderful service shown us over the years. We just LOVE our little 13B. Does it show? It is, without a doubt, our little gem.

Best of luck to Karl and the new kids. They've got a really tough act to follow!! You couldn't have set the bar any higher!!

Whatever your plans are, wherever your plans take you - ENJOY!! "How hard can it be?"
Hugs,
Carol & Lawrie Edwards, CHILLIWACK

Bittersweet indeed...we feel like we lost the Canada connection...

Having said that, congratulations!!! You have created such a wonderful company that has touched so many of us throughout North America. Because of you, we have made so many friends, and we will be eternally grateful. We consider you family rather than a business entity. God bless you and hope to see you down the road.

Best Regards,

Fred and Dora Morón

Congratulations

Reace and Tammy,


Knowing that you probably won't be reading this for awhile and everyone before me has said what I would say, only better, I too wish you the best in whatever you do.

Retirement is grand. Glad you could make it, and congrats. Guess my delivery in June was either the end of your line, or the beginning of the new owners, lol. And I love it.

Thank you for all your work over the years creating the best trailer of all. It was my dream for years and years to own an Escape and I finally bought one for my retirement and it's the best home I've ever had. I wish you many many years escaping Escape in an Escape!

Hey, Reace and Tammy,

I posted a farewell message I thought you would enjoy and would help you know you made a good decision. Too bad it was deleted. It’s like that some days.

We are so happy for you! Retirement is the best. Thanks so much for all of your attention and assistance to your customers - there is a very good reason yours are uncommonly loyal. We are still happily using our 19' Escape, the 11th you made, after 10 years.

Cheryl & Bruce Slightom
