I had missed this information until today, because I had assumed from the thread title that it was about a rally.
Here is a direct link to the post from ETI on page 8 of the thread. This is the best information regarding the AZ ambassador location.

Confused by a target market

I don't understand Escape trying to target the off road enthusiast. I have many freinds who have built Jeeps and they would rather sleep in a tent and spend the money on Jeep parts. They really should be selecting 3 or 4 premium RV dealers and send them trailers with premium packages.

Really a partner in the south west Lake Havasu, south east Florida, eastern Canada, Toronto would be a better strategy.

I'm sure the average Escape owner is in their 40's or 50's and use their trailers for long distance trips at RV parks. I doubt many Escape owners are running trails.

Hi Doug
I don't disagree with the concepts in your post. From where I am, I don’t think about ruggedized trailers, Off road Jeeps, mountain climbing etc. I do notice the trailers coming out of Elkhart have shifted down in size the last three years or so. I also note the “luxury” campers like the Travato showing up in campgrounds too. My take is that the average age of Escape buyers is low to mid 60s. It would be interesting to know. The study of a product sales demographic is complex and I’m sure Escape knows that. The future will indeed be interesting to many, though not all, Escape owners.
All the best to you
Iowa Dave

I agree with you Doug 100%. Sure plenty of us like to get away from it all, but few wish to drive down 4x4 roads and haul a trailer while doing it.


On FiberglassRV, a new manufacturer made their presence known last mid-December. They're targeting hunters and fishers with an all-molded-towable capable of crawing really rough roads, the GoBe: https://gobecampers.com/

There are a number of “specialty markets” for “comfortable” shelter depending upon the interest or activity at hand. Believe it or don’t, there are ice fishing shacks now that
are towed out on the ice, wheels “retract” ,
Hole covers removed and holes drilled,
Furnace fired and “Hey honey, I’m home”.
Prices to $30,000. You’ll see them in campgrounds in the summer on occasion usually in northern climates. 30 K. Not for me but for some. Toy haulers, Horse trailer/campers with potable corrals and hay on the roof, it’s all out there.

Looks like ETI has resumed posting production date availability on their website: https://escapetrailer.com/production-schedule/

Current availability is any time in the second half of January, I assume that means they are booked up through January 15.

Reace had announced this quite a ways back. One of the main reasons for the new buildings. Going through them was very interesting when I did. A very nice setup. I am glad Reace gave me a few tours over the years as I doubt I could get one anymore, not that I can blame them for keeping the general public out of the production areas.

It's likely a requirement of their insurance. Not unusual.

Just checked back on the ETI Production Schedule. They list a date and number of slots available, but no trailer types. My guess is they are modifying production by producing what people order, as opposed the way they used to do it, choosing trailer type and completion date.

rmitch Nailed it! I'm giving our customers the freedom to choose. A major strength at Escape is our ability to personalize and customize. I believe we need to continue this approach. Most people (not everyone) focus on the Orientation date rather than a specific production date.

Schedule??

We just completed our paperwork and did the WT for the balance of our new E-21..wh is in production. Plan is to store it up in Chilliwack til Spring and go get it as soon as weather moderates. (I hate missing a Fall season of camping tho grrrr.).
I was kidding w Meagan while we discussed the balance due, etc etc and "storage" tips and so on . I mentioned that I hoped ETI was really gonna open the rumored 'branch office" in AZ bks "it wd save me days of travel" next Spring.....she just said nothing, so I moved on to other details.
FWIW I don't expect it will happen til the day AFTER I get back from that 5000 mile trip to Canada...my luck being what it usually is...

But what a wonderful trip it will be!! You'll have a wealth of stories about where you've been and what you've seen, exploring our wonderful continent.
And.... all the photos you'll be able to post on this forum, so we can ooh and ahhh, and ask "where was that taken" and "what exciting things did you find and do there" .............

I highly recommend waiting until May and then attending the rally in Osoyoos after pick up. We did that this year and it was memorable. Osoyoos is about 3 hours east from Chilliwack and if anything is not working properly it can be fixed there. The drive through Canada is breath taking as is Chilliwack and Osoyoos.That is why we have been back there 4 times....
