Trip to Canada

Wowee. What an experience -- driving 2 days to Canada meeting Rease and Tammy and Dave.... What a fantastic group of people! Escape Trailers are the BEST!

Love them.

We love our trailer. What an amazing piece of design and composition. They really do a superior job.

We thought our heads were going to explode when we got the lessons -- total newbies - we know zip about rvs or camping. So they had to teach us everything. And what patient teachers they were.

If you can afford an Escape Trailer, I swear to you that you can't do better. They are an amazing company and we are privileged to have had the chance to meet them.

Yes, their trailers cost more, but they are the best construction and are made by people who really take pride in their work. These trailers are built to last a very long time. Quality construction matters.

We sit in our trailer tonight grateful that there are such conscientious, caring, dedicated people out there building trailers that are nothing short of fantastic.

Thanks to Tammy and Rease and Dave. So much happiness for us. After my cancer diagnosis I knew I had to find a way to get out and experience the world in a way I never had before. As scared as we were to try this, I have to say we are glad we did it. And we feel lucky to have found Escape Trailers as our first foray into the RV world.

Hi Kalyson,

Congratulations on your purchase. Besides loving your Escape, you will love camping. Having a home on wheels is so much better than motels along the way.

Sooo well said. We kept wanting to pinch ourselves while sitting in our new Escape, thinking how fortunate we were that Tammy and Reace were able to do what they do so well. A little more than 2 months later, we realize we weren't dreaming. Congratulations on your Escape. You got a lot of friends out there.

Re: Trip to Canada

Thanks Kalyson for the glowing report. This gives more confidence to other newbies (us) that have never RV'd before.

Best Regards,

Re: Trip to Canada

They are high but if you price a Casita 17 they are $18,000 and up now. Casita/infalation goes up about 500 dollar increase every year. Thanks for the feedback Kalyson
