Question Different Escape manufacturers?

I recently noticed Escape trailers built by KZ:

Are these all the same Escape trailers?

That's Thor industries. They have like ~20 different RV companies, including Jayco and Airstream. All lower quality than ETI, IMO, including the airstreams.

It's easy to keep it straight when you remember that Escape is the "make" or "brand" , not the model, when it comes to our trailers. The models are the 17, 19, 21, 5.0, etc.. (Just like Ford or Chevy or Chrysler or Toyota are makes of vehicles, not models.)

In KZ's case, KZ-Spree is the "make" or "brand" and Escape is just a model or line.

But about the only thing they have in common with our molded fiberglass trailers is that they are trailers.
