Smile Is your 17B or 19 Escape trailer needing a new home?

My wife & I are looking to get back into the fiberglass community after selling our Boler in the spring.
We are interested in acquiring a 17’B – 19’ Escape 2010 to 2014 model years.
Located in Southern Ontario. Please forward details of your trailer that you would like to see go to a new home.
Thanks for viewing.
Ryan & Nicole, Team Morrison

Hi: Team_Morrison... Escape Ind. only started building trailers in 2003. They were all 17's and the first couple of years were ltd. production. That's what happens when you start from scratch. Our 5.0 fifth wheel was a 2007 and it was the first one east of the Rockies. There's one 17er across St Thomas and it's an early one #ing in the first 20 or 30 built.
ps. It was a pleasure to meet you in Niagara Falls. Alf

Ryan and Nicole ,
Only advice I would have for you is to get flexibility built into your schedule, have some $ ready and waiting, check the Escape forum and fiberglass RV regularly and finally bump your message to the top when it dissapears as long as the forum allows this.

I suspect there a few folks like me, that are "trading up" but plan on hanging onto their current Escapes for a while. How soon to you want to take delivery?

We are coming to the end of camping season in about a month here in Southern Ontario so at this point would like to have a unit for May 2017.
Your 2013 maybe above our budget with the Can/Us $ exchange, but could still be interested.
What is the eta on your new unit?

Not until 0ctober but it will be available for a new owner in June '17 (nobody will want it near the end of camping season ). Looks as if we both have time to ponder our options, huh? Best of luck to you in your search.

If you haven't seen a 17b, I have one in London, you could take a look before she goes away for the winter. We have one more trip planned before storage.

Thanks Doug for the offer.
We attended the Escape Wine Event and were able to view the Escape line of trailers. So we will decline the offer to view see yours at this time.
We were successful by picking up a one owner 2010 KZ-Coyote 164CL unit, it's a laminated sandwich wall construction trailer (fiberglass panel, 1" styrofoam core, 1/8" plywood/wallpaper).
It's not an Escape but it's got us out camping again and the living room in the house gets new carpet.
This does not mean our search for an escape is over it just delay's it for a season or two.
Thanks again Doug, everyone else that has replyed and viewed.
Ryan & Nicole

Ryan and Nicole, I like your thinking. The main thing is to get out there and camp, and any trailer is a big step up in comfort and convenience from a tent.

In the meantime, the right Escape will come along.

I am interested in your 19 and a sale next spring would be ideal so I don't have to store it over the winter. I am currently shopping for a suitable tow vehicle (and daily driver for my wife). I would be interested in checking out out sometime in the next few months that is convenient for you. We are also considering new, but the waitlist is long and I am not sure how the old vs new 19s compare.

May I suggest a V8 for that 19'. I tow a 17b with my Tacoma and find it it to be a great combination for close camping excursions, but on the longer trips, I'm working the V6 harder than I think I should. I do plan on a bigger truck.

Not so much the number of cylinders in the engine, but the power to weight ratio. My 2.7L V6 with twin turbos will tow anything Escape makes with ease, and thousands of lbs of towing capacity to spare.
