We also have the Escape 17 and would agree with what Thane is saying. The Escape is a very well made trailer and we like the front window.
The other question I have with the Oliver, which may not be a problem, is that the bathroom is at the front of the trailer while the dump valve is at the back. Everything I have learned thus far about tanks would tell me that running the dump pipes the length of the trailer could be a mistake.
That said, you can't really go wrong if you go with one of these fiberglass trailers.... they are a superior product than the "other" kind.
Having done a lot of trailer research like the rest of you, I wanted to comment on the Oliver
black water drain pipe. We came so close to buying an Oliver
and still envious of those that own one, even though we love our Bigfoot
. The tanks on the Oliver run most of the length of the trailer. So the pipe from bathroom to tank is short and the pipe out of the tank to dump value is short. I love the way they do their tanks and their impressive combined size for a 17 foot trailer.
If your camping needs require a four season trailer like our needs do, then you can elimate serveral nice trailers. They all seem to have a good resale value, which makes Jen's statement "you can't go wrong with one of these fiberglsss trailers" so true.
