The 13' and 15' Escapes are the Unicorns, very rare.

They are rare, I believe that there were less than 50 15B's produced. We purchased our 15B from a seller in New Mexico, drove about 1500 km each way to pick it up in Wyoming and bring it back into Alberta, Canada!

Denise, any reason you would not want to purchase a classic 17B? It's only a few feet longer and not that much heavier and you get the front dinette. There are a lot more of them available.

I sure like having the front dinette in my 17B. The front dinette makes it so I can leave the back dinette as a permanent bed with a good mattress. I thought about a 15B but having to convert from bed to dinette daily would be a big bummer. The front dinette in the 17B is a perfect spot to wedge yourself into and read a book on a rainy day!

My 'plan' was to purchase a 17B but the first used trailer that we were able to buy was a 19'. Good to keep your options open.

Sorry we are keeping ours. Keep searching, they do come up for sale on occasion and you usually need to act quickly.

We looked for a month for any fiberglass trailer. We wanted a dinette. Then this 15 b popped up and we jumped on it. We think it is very nice and we are very happy with it.

The next day a 17 b popped up in Bellevue. Go figure.

Keep looking and be ready to jump. Because they are selling in 3-7 days depending on location.

Another word from a recent buyer.

There is no incentive for any fiberglass trailer seller to go down in price at this time. Double for Escape sellers. Decide your budget and don't try to dicker the price because there is a whole list of folks behind you ready to buy. Its a sellers market right now.

With that said if it doesn't seem right walk away. I ran across some suspicious sellers. They may have been ok but they were requesting some things which made me pass.

It is a lot of money.

Not to ambush the OP thread.

But I was interested on how many 15 b were made. I contacted Escape and they could not give be a answer, which I thought was strange. Only that they were produced from 2000 -2015.


I was hoping they could tell me the order mine was made. 30 out of 50 or something like that.

Tammy kept better records.

ETI made:fifty-seven 15As and forty-seven 15Bs = 104

Thanks you for the pic! We just sold our Bigfoot Camper so we are aware of how the market is working right now . Now that I know how few 15B’s were built it will be like looking for a needle in a haystack . Yes great advise to have a budget and walk away if it doesn’t feel right . Patience is definitely needed. We are ready to buy as soon as the right one comes along

Discussed numerous times, the serial number regarding order of construction and number built is not a very accurate indicator. The last three digits of the serial number on the first 1,000 trailers indicate where in line that trailer was built. However the models 17, 15 13, later the 19, and the 5.0 single axle were included and co-mingled and finally in the later part of 2013. the first 21s had serial numbers in the 660’s. A series of several of the same model were built then another model etc. There are some “owner based clues” and insights If the original owner might have had a conversation with Reace at order or pickup time where they were told “ this is number so and so that we’ve built.” At the 2018 rally I had this conversation with Reace and another early 21 owner. Reace confirmed the sales history on the first 21s and owner remembered being told his unit was number three released in the first run after the first three “prototypes” were built.
I’m sure other owners have similar experiences. Otherwise it’s difficult to tell just where a particular unit stands in line. Many readers of this forum I’m sure remember that there was a “build out” of the last of the 15s built. They were advertised both on this forum and on the ETI website as I remember and they were not immediately “snapped up”. It took a few weeks to sell them. If you buy a used Escape from an original owner, and you think you might care about its history, I’d advise asking as many questions as possible and possibly cataloging the answers. If you look into vintage fiberglass trailers for history you’ll find it’s accuracy and completeness can be a bit on the confusing.
I have a few of the early run of the 21s serial numbers in my Field notes and have my “ears on” most of the time. It’s one of those things that only matters to a few. And because I’m one of those to whom it matters, I also know I’m not well. Best of luck,
Iowa Dave and Rita with “True classic” Escape 21 number 6.
