Hello Everyone,

I know we just made our announcement regarding the Escape 19' but I thought you would be happy to hear our latest announcement. We have been working quietly (Thank you Doug) for the past couple of months on something that we think is really great! Please see below.....

Announcement - September, 2008
Escape Trailers & Trillium RV

Escape Trailer Industries Ltd (ETI), of Chilliwack, B.C. and Trillium RV Ltd. (TRV), of Carson City, NV are excited to announce a strategic alliance between the two companies covering; manufacturing, sales & marketing. All manufacturing of the Trillium trailer’s is being transferred to the Escape factory in Chilliwack.

Currently, ETI builds a 17’ travel trailer and a 19’ 5th wheel, with an additional 19’ model being introduced in Spring 2009. TRV builds a 13’ trailer, with a 15’ model also to be introduced in Spring 2009. This alliance will provide ETI with the opportunity to offer an ‘Escape’ 13’ and 15’ travel trailer with a custom wood interior finish, while the ‘Trillium’ 13’ and 15’ will have a fiberglass interior.

This joint effort between ETI and TRV will offer customers the opportunity to purchase either product in Canada or the United States. The new Escape product line will include 13’, 15’, 17’, 19’ travel trailers and a 19.5’ 5th wheel and the new Trillium product line will include a 13’ and 15’.

Early bird pricing will soon be available in both ‘Escape’ and ‘Trillium’ models for the 13’ and 15’ travel trailers.


Reace, Tammy (Escape Trailer Ind.) & Tom (Trillium RV)

Great news Reace!

Something good comes to Chilliwack!!

(not that there weren't good things there already - I'm originally from there and I seem to be out there every couple of weeks visiting various family members, but it's cool to hear of something allied with one of my interests happening in a place I know.)

All the best with this endeavour!

Dave

Congrats Reace, Tammy, and Tom!!! What an interesting collaboration! I look forward to seeing all the wonderful new trailers that will be made as a result of this partnership. Did thoughts of this alliance begin at the Oregon Gathering?

best wishes!

...and NOW I can tell my side of the story.
Years ago, the Trailer Goddess and I had taken our Trillium trailer out to Escape to have some work done to it, including the addition of an awning rail and new awning. Reace and I had been chatting about trailers and I suggested the addition (to their line) of a new 13' (or similar size) egg. Reace had indicated it might be possible and that he was thinking about it. I had suggested that if they do start making one that the inside height be the same as (or even a little higher, even 1/2 inch higher) as a 13' Trillium. Trilliums are taller inside than their cousins the Bolers. Reace seemed (at that time) a little reluctant to go that extra height (I think it was a cost saving issue??) and I expressed my thoughts that a taller person would be more apt to buy a trailer that he/they can stand upright in as opposed to one where the occupants need to stoop over while inside. A person more 'vertically challanged' however, probably wouldn't care if he had more headroom or not, if they liked the fit/finish and layout of the unit, they'd buy it anyhow.
IMHO: This 'thought' about the extra height just might add a few more sales to Reaces account!!

A few weeks ago, I was talking with Tammy about the escape line and she swore me to secrecy and informed me of their choice to build a smaller version of their now semi-famous Escape 17' and 5.0! Keeping that secret was prolly one of the hardest secrets I've had to keep and I'm now elated that the secrets out and even more happier that their business is going to now really start to sky rocket.

Congratulations Reace, Tammy and Escape Trailer Industries.....
