There is a woman in Vancouver that has a 15b for sale.

Fiberglass Travel Trailer 15' Escape


I am still looking for a 15a.

Thanks for the reply, I have reached out to that person, but am a little confused since the same trailer is describe sold on the other glass trailer forum site, and am seeking clarification.
Out of curiousity, why do you prefer the A model ?
Regards,
Rod

Hi Rod:

Actually, when my wife and I decided to upgrade to a larger trailer, I wanted a 15b. But we sat down and discussed how we camp. I hate to admit it, but we prefer the 15a because it has two sleeping areas, which we need. I take the front and my wife and the two dogs take the rear sleeping area. It works for us. I love the front kitchen in the 15b.

Rod: you really shouldn't have a problem finding a 17b or 19 - you may have to wait until Spring.

Rod: Both my wife and I love the Duluth area. Keep in touch and let us know when you are in the area.

I forgot to mention, the main reason I am looking for an Escape 15 is I don't want to upgrade my tow vehicle. I purchased a new Tacoma in 2015 and I love that truck and have no desire to get something different. If I went to a 17 or larger, then I would need a new truck.

Your truck has 3,500 lb. tow capacity ( according to an earlier post ), which is enough to comfortably tow a 17B. I tow mine with a RAV4 with 3,500 lb. capacity.
So, if you get tired of searching for a 15, a 17 is a doable option.

Keep watching, you're doing it right. I'd advise that you check fiberglass RV on a daily basis too. I seem to recall a few Escapes showing up on that forum that did not show up on this one or at least a couple days earlier. I predict your opportunity will occur in the next 45 days.

I did, and spoke with the owner, looking for a few more included options at that price point, thanks for the reply.

I am exploring all avenues, the stars are aligning, and gravitational forces swinging in my favor... oh! Hold it, I'll save that one for Sedona.
Thanks for the reply and safe travels.

We posted yesterday that we are planing on selling our 17B in July approx. We will be at the rally in May if you are planing on attending. Our 17B has been appointed with most options short of AC, stereo and TV but has been pre wired for AC if desired. I will post more when we are ready to sell as there are travel plans for May and June.
