Hi y'all. We are recent Escape owners finally joining the forum. We discovered Escape trailers during several months of research in early 2012, then ultimately bought a 2008 17B through the factory in April. Based on email photos and candid insights from Reace, we committed to the purchase sight unseen. We were impressed at pickup and have been happy since - expectations exceeded. We like the ease of towing and storage; and we love the interior space, decor, and feel. And it gets even more cozy when our two furry friends charge in the door at bedtime. We're all looking forward to this year's rally...Carmen & Glenn, Matsi & Bernie.
