I think that you will enjoy the interaction process with the ETI reps as you move through the build choices. My questions were always answered cheerfully, quickly and thoroughly. We are picking our 17A up tomorrow, and the trip has been great!

Havenít met Bruce with the 17. Where is he located and does he frequent the forum? Funny our trailer was bought sight unseen in VA and I have actually never seen another Escape in person. Very rare around here.
Hi... Bruce is in Asbury, NJ... not sure if he is part of the forum... it would be great to see your Escape 19... We are in Somerset, NJ... how can we arrange this meeting for one of these weekends? I am not sure how to exchange our contact information outside of this forum... not sure what the privacy guidelines are for exchanging information with other Escape owners via the Forum or outside of it... please let me know and we can go from there. And, btw, thank you for offering to show us your Escape, it will definitely help us shape our image of what ours might look like... Warren and Maria

Hello!
Oh how wonderful... how was picking up your Escape experience? So far, the Escape folks have been superb with answering every question, etc. I can not imagine making this purchase from a distance without the top of the line customer service as Escape has provided...

Happy trails!

Warren and Maria

Hello,

How exciting... congratulations! A couple of questions, did you get underbelly insulation? And, lifted the axel? We are debating on these two options at the moment... enjoy your new trailer!

Hi Jim,

Thanks for the feedback. With the underbelly insulation, did you also get the axel lift? Also, did you get the 'equalizer' hitch with sway control and weight distribution? There are three options to pick from and we are not 100% on which one is best for us. We drive a Honda Ridgeline...

Thanks,

Warren and Maria

We ordered ( due in June ) the underbelly insulation as well as the high lift axle for our soon-to-be-ours 21'. If you haven't already, you should read all the documentation you can find about using a weight distributing hitch ( WDH ) on your Ridgeline. If they are approved for it, it's probably a very good idea to get one that works with it. Mid-sized tow vehicles ( we went thru 3 Isuzu Troopers ) like the Ridgeline benefit greatly from the "equalization" a WDH provides. If adjusted correctly, it will greatly improve your ride, comfort, and stability while towing. It will reduce any porpoising and squat you might get without it. Highly recommended.

We eventually got a pretty stout F-150 with modified rear suspension, and sometimes we do use the WDH, but I don't really notice much of a difference with or without it. The Ridgeline should do great. Hopefully you have the "tow package" or whatever Honda offered for the Ridgeline to improve towing, if anything. After a little google, I see some years of the Ridgeline don't recommend the use of a WDH, so check yours. It also looks like you have to have the AWD version to get the 5000lb max towing capacity. Your owners manual should tell you what you need to know, and that little yellow sticker inside the driver's door.

Exciting !

No high lift axle and no equalizer hitch as I have a truck. Not sure what your Honda requirements are, you may want to wait and see what Escape says when you pick up.

Maria: I haven't sent the PM yet, but just to clarify is your intention to see our classic 19 (with many mods) or Jim's 2016 2nd gen...or both? I ask because you originally replied to my post, but above you imply you are awaiting a PM from Jim (cpaharley2008).

Hello,
I am trying to establish connection with the Escape owner that lives in Burlington, NJ... I think we may have gotten our communications crossed. If you are the Burlington owner, we would like to come out and see your Escape 19... please let us know if that is something you would consider. Thank you.
