So, is today your retirement day or the day the trailer is due? Bit confused there. Either way, yay!
Today is my retirement day and the day I put a deposit on the trailer. Biggest day ever.

No, no fooling. Just retired and just got a trailer or the promise of one. Already working on the build sheet.

Hi all.
We were able to secure a date in January for our 21 footer.
Jan 6 is our lucky day.Now trying to time the sale of our upgraded 17 B.
We still like to be able to use it during the summer and will probably sell after August 2016.Pressure is off, time to go camping next week.Phew.
Allan in North Vancouver.

That would have been a good April Fool's joke, but nothing near as big as the one Escape is pulling off.

I know you switched over from the 2016 model to the 2017 model. What is your original date for the completion? Are you going to have it in time for the rally in May? That'd be cool if others at the rally could see the new mold 5.0TA in person.

As you heard at Escape yesterday, the moulds almost certainly will be too far out to have one completed by then, thus affecting my completion date. I will just bide my time trailerless for a while longer, with patience as my (waning) virtue.

Good things come to those that wait.......right?

Yeah, but I thought you might be in just the right place in the queue that you'll get the second one out of the mold since the first will be their display model. And it could have fit within the timing of the rally.

Minus the rough spots you mentioned in another post since the molds got redone. Was that on all of 'em? Or just a particular size?

Let's not talk about patience, shall we?

What a crazy thread. Talk about pent up demand! And I thought us having to wait 7-8 months from order to delivery was bad....


Congrats to all the speed dialers who snagged a build date. FUN times ahead.

Anybody know how far out the dates are now? Production schedule hasn't been updated since this morning.

21 for Florida

My wife secured the Jan 4th for the 21 escape . I'm hoping they ramp up production and we can get it earlier ?? I think she said it was the first 21 for 2017 . I wanted the 19 or 5 TA she won out with the 21 . I'll be happy with any one of them .
We probably will be selling our Snoozy when we get a confirmed date . Another JIM (Florida)
