Impressed with the build quality

Iíve had the Escape 19 at home now for a few days and am extremely impressed with the build quality of this unit. Itís simply unmatched based on my prior research. Sadly, most trailers manufactured today are built with such poor quality materials that they are really just disposable after about 10 years.

Same here.

Over the last four short trips, the only manufacturing ‘defect’ that surfaced was a kitchen sink drain fitting that leaked. Hand tightening was all the fix that was required.

We have owned a series of quality RV’s over the last many years. Escape is the equal of any of them.

This one is our last.

We picked up our new (and first ever) travel trailer, the Escape 21, May 3rd and have been camping in Washington state since we picked it up. The build quality is impressive! Only issue we had is a leaking shower connection which only required tightening.

We looked at many stick built trailers before deciding on the Escape. The quality of the stick built trailers was so bad that we decided NOT to buy anything. Then a friend suggested fiberglass trailers. We looked at all the fiberglass trailer manufacturers and the Escapes offered the best layout/quality/price combination for our needs and wants. Totally satisfied with our decision to go with Escape. ETI made the entire process pleasant and effortless. Our biggest issues were figuring out what options we wanted. That’s when I found this website. Spent days and days on the site. I learned so much from this site. What a great one two combination, ETI and this forum! Thank You both!

We had a stick built for 15 years. When we were immersed in the purchase process for our Escape over the past year I was focused mostly on options, measurements, decorating choices, and a million little details. Even when we went to Chilliwack and spent a whole day sitting in the floor model I really didn't fully appreciate the build quality, just looking at measurements and features. Once we got our trailer and spent some time in it, the build quality really sunk in. It is so much more solid in every way than our old stick built trailer, just no comparison. I knew the Escape would be high quality, but it has exceeded my expectations.
