Hi my wife and I are looking to purchase a 19 ft Escape. We will be traveling through Chilliwack next month and plan on visiting factory. We have a 2017 Tacoma off road. Really looking forward to being Escape owners!
You are making a great choice. We love ours, and are looking forward to our second year of camping. Good to visit the factory though and see all of the models. Some on here have headed to Chilliwack expecting to purchase a 19 and ended up with a 21. But for us, the 19 is the perfect size and layout.
Fred, welcome aboard, you're on the right track. Visiting the factory is the easy way to see all models side by side and get a ton of info and questions answered. Hailing as you do from MN, I smell a thermal package and spray foam insulation in your future.

First Promise: The orientation video that is linked on the Escape website is well done and very helpful if you have not seen it. This is based on the original "classic" 19 but many features and interior layout will be the same.
