Escape 19' Ordered (comp. date 6/21) - New in Northern CA!

Hi All,

We just put a deposit down for a new 19' - can't wait to officially join the club next year once we receive it. I've been lurking on this forum since earlier this year and have already enjoyed the wealth of knowledge and how helpful folks are here.

For those interested in current timing, we put a deposit down on Monday afternoon PT (8/31) and were looking for earliest available delivery. The earliest we were able to select on the website was May 2021. I had also emailed with Escape earlier in the day that morning and they indicated May slots were earliest available but going fast. I waited about 5 hours after receiving that email to place the deposit online through the website (which is their preferred method). We received an email receipt immediately acknowledging the deposit, but nothing about production date, etc. Today, Tuesday 9/1, we received our official welcome email from Escape mid-morning PT indicating a production completion date of June 4, 2021.

They weren't joking about May filling fast! I had read on this forum (or perhaps the FB group) that production slots for April were available as of a week or two ago. If you want something for summer 2021 I suggest you put a deposit down ASAP...

On build timing, the welcome email informed us that we will need to start our build sheet in early Feb. (4 months prior to completion) and someone from Escape will reach out to us then to work on customization and answer any questions. The build sheet must be final by early March (3 months prior to completion and that is when deposit becomes non-refundable).

Thought this info may be helpful for other newbies since I had some trouble finding it all in one place.

Looking forward to future travels soon!

Best,
Chandra

Chandra, thanks for the heads up! We put down a deposit about half an hour ago and were just sent an email that the production complete date is 6/8/21...we had been hoping for an April delivery and thought we'd have until October or so to put down any money. Those slots are definitely moving quickly!

Wow, 2 day difference in deposit = 1 month difference in completion date. The folks at ETI must be simultaneously thrilled and stressed out, ha.

So glad my message helped - I was shocked as well thinking we'd be able to secure April or May without issue since it's so far in the future!

I don’t think everyone just gets in line. I thought I heard at one point that ETI groups production slots together based on trailer model.

I asked Linda at Escape if slots were dependent on model ordered and she said no.

Crazy! We put our deposit down on March 15, and picked up July 3, with a slight delay due to Covid! Their sales must be through the roof!

We are from Texas and I've never seen an Escape on the road traveling. Haven't camped in several years but never saw one in a campground either. When we ordered we had to find one to look at. I don't think that'll be the case in the coming years, sounds like they will be everywhere across the southern US.

Word to the wise regarding the build sheet. Don't wait to start.
We ordered, and got a hatch date 10 months down the road. Once we ordered, just about every day at work, I would spent my lunch hour reviewing information and asking questions on the forum. I sent a list of questions to ETI, and emailed or called them a few times.
This resulted in 8 different build sheet updates, with additions, subtractions, and revisions. We got it right just in time to sign the final build sheet and have it back to ETI in time for production.
Start working on it now.
Post Script: the only thing we got that we don't use is the hitch wheel.

Good advice! We have a late Feb. completion date and the build sheet is due Oct. 21st. trying to go ahead and get it finalized just in case we could get moved up.

We placed a deposit on 9/1 and have a completion date of 5/26/21 for a 21NE. Would like to have it sooner, but Jan-April is ski season anyway.
