Well, I'm doing my best not to take this news personally... I just gave my deposit for a new Escape 19 this morning and now I see this! I was looking forward to meeting you guys in March when I pick up my new trailer. Maybe we'll meet someday out there in our trailers. Enjoy your retirement.

Congrats to Reace & Tammy!

Wow, what a huge life change for you both! Seems like yesterday when we first met you at the Seattle RV Show back in 2004. You were “the new kids on the block”. We are still enjoying our “vintage” 2005 17b that was manufactured in the original factory near downtown Chilliwack. We know your lives will be as full as ever and we wish you all the best!

Congratulations

You have both given all of us the best possible trailers for our own enjoyment as well as the best service anyone could hope for. I thank you for all that you have meant and done for all of us and wish you both the best possible time in your future. You both deserve it. Thank you for being there for us.

Congratulations

Congratulations on your well deserved retirement. I was thinking of you both as I hooked up our E21 (classic) as we were getting ready to head out on our annual camping trip, this year three weeks on Vancouver Island. As I was doing this I couldn’t help but think how grateful we are to have such a great trailer. We have never received such good service especially the after sales service we received whenever we needed help. Thank you. Remember don’t count your years, make your years count. Cheers, Doreen and Pat

Fantastic!!!!! As someone who just retired last October, I appreciate how exciting this time is. You’ve worked hard and made a lot of sacrifices. Time to open a new chapter in your lives. Hope all the very best. You have started something that you can be very proud of. Angie and I are so glad to have briefly met you both. We couldn’t be happier with our 21 Escape we got in March. Hope to see you on the road somewhere if not at the rally next year. Happy travels to you both. Ronda and Angie

Wowie Zowie and Congratulations! My husband and I brought our 2018 17A to Osoyoos this year. That rally was a testament to the outstanding product you two have created and to the generous community feelings you have fostered. May your next adventures be just as satisfying but with a lot less work and stress. Thank you. Omay

I feel Escape has a good future. I talked w/ Karl (new CEO) for well over a half an hour at the Escape Rally in May and feel he's a very good CEO, has good ideas for the future and will undoubtedly take Escape to the next level. I'm betting on Escape continuing to make great products along with exceptional customer service.

Wow! I missed this announcement as we were camped on the shores of Lake Superior at the time (What's out our FRONT window?). Congrats!!! You will enjoy retirement. I'm sure that you will find ways to more than fill up your time at first. It takes at least a couple of years to settle into a better pace and to enjoy life without all the must do, will do of the working life. Relax and Enjoy!

If traveling through west central Wisconsin keep us in mind. We live near the Interstate and next door to a good winery... In the words of Tom Bodett, "...we'll leave the light on for you."

Missed this official announcement as we were camping in Great Barrington,Ma.

We are so lucky to pull an 2018 Escape 17B. Drove from Massachusetts to ETI,OCT. 2018, to pick up our ‘Spero’. Our east coast camping friends thought we were crazy!
Drove 9000 miles around Canada/US to return home. So much room!
Thanking you both for raising the bar on quality!
Enjoy your days.
Jill and Vickie
