Wanted Escape 15 in Canada

Ready to buy Escape 15, would prefer 15b but would also consider a 15a with hot water capacity.
Ideally in Western Canada but can travel further in Canada if necessary.

We are easy buyers as have had Escapes before

Contact through PM
Thank you.

Hi,
I didn't know there was a 15 foot model. I have a 17B in FL, USA, lightly used and loaded. I am looking to upsize so that my 6'2" Father can stand up straight and travel with me.

Thanks for responding but hoping for a 15 in Canada as we can’t cross the border.
You should have no trouble selling your 17

There was very few of them built. In my opinion, a bad business decision to stop building them, I doubt they made enough to pay for the molds.

They should build a stripped down version, cabinets and furnace only. Many would be happy with this.

You can bet they’d be selling them if they could make money doing it. Reace had apparently said they cost just as much as the 17 to produce with less market demand. I don’t doubt your stripped down version idea has validity for a certain segment of campers out there that want small and simple....there just might not be enough of them to make it worthwhile.

You think? Few sold, few built, high production cost compared to 17, 19, 21, 5.0TA.

I'm on a Facebook group for Ontario Provincial Parks and many keep asking what's a good trailer under 2500lbs to pull with their minivan. Of course I promote the Escape cause their the best. I bought a Tundra to pull my 19 but many of my friends have midsize SUV's and minivans with no interest in a truck.

Production was low before the 2017 expansion, that's how I understand it.

Production was low and costs were high. Cost as much to build as a 17', but would sell for less, of course. If it were profitable, it would still be in the line.

Thank you.
I am sure you know about the Armadillo since you live in the interior of BC. Similar in size to the 15 but at great expense.

https://www.armadillotrailers.ca/

Good luck on your search.

What I think they should do is produce one model, no choice of options, quick production, as they make great gateway trailers. Buyers often move up after a few years. Simplify the one model.

Fingers and toes crossed a used one comes up.
The Armadillo is way out of budget unfortunately and I am partial to Escapes

Yup...you are correct. A small Armadillo can cost more than a 17 with the same options.

Good luck on your search.
