Hoping for a factory visit.

We were hoping to visit the Escape factory before year end to see it up close and hear about the 23'
Not so sure that's going to happen.

Sam

From the Washington Post:

"A national survey by Destination Canada, a crown corporation that markets Canada as a tourist destination, found that just 24 percent of people in Quebec somewhat or strongly agreed with welcoming U.S. visitors — and they were the most enthusiastic province. In British Columbia, the figure was 6 percent.

“Canadians look at what’s happening with the spread of covid in the United States and their comparatively better performance at getting it under control,” said Edward Alden, a fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. “And they have no interest at all in Americans coming to Canada.”

Thank you, said the oh so polite Canadians.
BTW, you can get a cap on Amazon.com
Note, it's made in the USA.

If they had it in Blue I would be interested. The words would not be read by about 36% of Americans. They would see the red and assume the wrong thing.

Problem is, in Canada, the Conservative party's colour is blue and the Liberal ( Trudeau ) is red. New Democratic Party is orange.
Guess what colour the Green Party is.

I doubt you'll have the opportunity to tour the factory...particularly with the ongoing current events. Secondly...the liability issues of having X number of folks 'touring' the facility can be both positive AND negative. Best to not have said tours.
Your best option is reviewing the Escape Trailer Industries videos on YouTube.
Add to that the photos that ETI provides during many of the builds uploaded (I'd include mine but I'm still figuring out how to do that..belatedly) which gives you an excellent idea as to the quality of their product.
Finally...the commentary by the members of this forum clearly and overwhelmingly support ETI...even with its occasional hiccups.

And frankly...havn't the issues surrounding colour and ideology been the mainstay of the mainstream? I prefer this forum for the lack of such commentary.

We live in St Catharines, Ontario( Niagara Region) and want to view an Escape 17b.
Hoping to purchase one but I am 6’3” and concerned about head room.
Anyone with a 17b travelling in Ontario that we could take a look at.
Thanks

I'm 6'4" and if you are anything like me you are long accustomed to watching for 'headaches' The Escape is worth it!

They have a lot of livestream videos and will do personal zoom video tours online for you and answer questions. Not quite the same as being there, but I think they are doing their best considering the situation!

Karl the President of Escape is 6' 3" tall, he has done a number of live stream videos, and one of the things make a point of showing is how someone as tall as he is, fits in the trailer.
