Do you have a 21' we can look at?

We live in northern Cali near the coast. If you live near Sac, the Bay Area or Humboldt county and have a 21' Escape that you would like to show, we would be most appreciative.
I have contacted ETI with this request but they may not know anyone close.
We will be at Bullards Beach, Oregon for the July Casita rally also. If you are also attending and would not mind us taking a peak at your 21', sooo good.
Casita offers a finders fee to owners who show their trailers to prospective buyers, I don't know if Escape does the same but we would be willing to provide such a finders fee if we should buy an Escape either new or used.

Happy camping,

Mark & Cheryl & Nellie, the beagle.

I’m in the same boat, trying to find a newer 21’ without traveling too many hours, since we don’t have plans to order until next year. I’m just going to wait till Bullard’s Beach and see some then. Maybe we will run into each other there!

Lisa, that would be great! Look for us in the Casita with Lake Tahoe on front.

Lee and Nancy. Thank you for your kind offer. We will be going thru on our way to Ballard Beach Egg Rally in July. Hope to be close to decision time by then.

In Canada, Escape has traditionally offered a CAD$200 finder's fee to owners who showed their trailer to someone who eventually bought one for themselves. The cheque from ETI arrives after the new buyer has paid for their unit in full.

Brent and Cheryl, Casita does the same. I wonder if Escape requires that you purchased your trailer from the factory, or , if they will pay a second or 3rd owner the finders fee as well. Seems like a good practice since there are no dealers. I am glad, I do not like having to do business with a middle man , generally.

Just curious as to your post?

Mark

Mark, five years ago gbaglo stopped at our place on his way through town at our request and showed us his 17' Escape. A short time later, we travelled to Chilliwack and ordered ours.

Like you, we found a personal showing by an owner to be a more pleasant and useful process than the showroom and commissioned salesperson approach. And you gain a lot more knowledge by talking with an owner who has actually camped in their unit extensively, and knows which build list options are worthwhile, etc.

Regarding whether ETI pays a finder's fee to second and third owners of an Escape, you would have to ask the staff at the factory. They also used to keep a list of owners across North America, including your area, who had agreed to show their units to prospective buyers.

Why would they? You're not buying it from ETI.

I took Mark's question to mean receiving the $200 fee from ETI for showing your second or third-hand Escape to a prospective buyer of a new one from the factory. Not sure of the answer. As so often happens, I'm probably out of my depth here.

If that was the question, then Jim Norman is the champion of collecting referral fees.
A bit thick. Now, I think I understand the question. Person buying a new trailer from ETI would specify who showed them an Escape. If that person didn't buy from ETI then ETI would need name and address.

Trailer tours at Bandon

To clarify people coming to Bullard's Beach in Bandon, Oregon. We will have a few designated hours on Saturday only for trailer tours and it will be optional for trailer owners. Not everyone cares to spend hours showing their trailers so we advise that unless people are in their campsite with the door open or a open sign don't bother them. We are there to relax and have fun not be unpaid sales people for trailer manufactures. Most of the people that show their trailers have done modifications on them and are eager to share those so you may get invited to take a peek on other days. Also, Escape Industries has a referral program that a owner can choose to participate in or not. I understand from Escape Industries that they have trailers almost anywhere and the owners are signed up on the "show their trailer for a potential fee" program. They can help you locate an Escape owner in this program.

gbaglo, yes, I was asking about a finders fee for an Escape owner, who is not the original owner, and the new Escape being purchased new from ETI.

Deb, I too hope those interested in seeing other folks trailers be very respectful of campers desire for privacy. We have been to several rallies in our short career as TT campers and have found most owners very friendly and proud of their trailers. Most eager to "show them off".

Mark

I checked with ETI and they still pay CAD$200 to an owner who shows their trailer to an individual or couple who eventually buy a trailer, as long as the buyer mentions the ambassador/owner when they sign their contract.

The $100 figure probably pops up because, according to one of the Escape staff, sometimes the buyer will have viewed two trailers and wants the amount split between both owners.

Lee & Nancy: I see you are towing your 21' with a v6 Tacoma. I'll be picking my 21' up September 20, towing it home (to NorCal) with a v6 Tacoma. I'd be very interested in your hitch config, Are you long bed/short bed, and most especially your experiences towing with your TV/Trailer combo!

If you took the time to show your Escape to a prospective owner and they later purchased a new Escape from the factory and they mentioned they saw your Escape (regardless of model or year) then you will receive a referral fee of $200 canadian, about $140 US. If these same owners looked at more than one Escape, then that fee can be split in half. It is up to the prospective buyer. One time I was one of only a few owners on this side of the Mississippi and I have received numerous checks or had credited to my build sheets, if I was buying or thinking of buying. We call them bird dog fees in the lower 48.
