Fiberglass RV production backlog

I saw today that Escape trailers are sold out thru the end of 2016.

Does anyone know how other manufacturers are doing? Scamp, Casita, etc.

Thanks, john

You know what works really well to find out this kind of information. A telephone, simply call each manufacturer. Bet they'll tell you when you could expect any trailer you might consider.

That sounds too much like effort. Not to mention hold times, busy signals, etc. Just thought some other folks here might have the info and others in the group might be interested.

I don't expect to ever be in the market again as my Scamp should last 40 more years, probably longer than I will be using it.

I'm a very impatient person and hate to wait for anything but if I was in the market for a new trailer I would probably order an Escape and wait. A 5.0 TA would sure be nice.

falling into the etc column at Oliver Travel Trailers we are booking for May 2016 deliveries. The whole RV industry is booming, let's hope it last for everyone.

My brother just ordered an Escape 19 the other day. Last weekend he was telling folks that he was going to get it on Dec 9th.......next year.

The wait is worth it, IMHO.

Wow, Jim. A 20016 Escape? That's some lead time!

Scamp often get caught up during winter. Last year I called them in February and they had a couple that were not claimed. I was able to make a few adjustments too. Put down a required amount and picked it up in May.

Put the manufacturer on notice for what you want. They all get cancellations for various reasons. Our 6 month wait time for an Escape (after the deposit was placed) went to 6 weeks when we took a cancelled production slot. Not a built trailer, but a slot - so we got exactly what we ordered.

Yet despite the popularity, fiberglass campers are still rare. We're just back from 3 weeks on the road and most nights we were the only egg in the campground. Raz

Scamp Lead time

Just got back for Scamp in Bakkus, MN. Saturday afternoon. If you ordered a Deluxe now, it would be built in February 2016.

While, like Gene, I would expect Scamp to have shorter wait times in the winter, that might not be the case since the wait time reported by Bob echo's the wait time for my Scamp (and Richard's also), which was ordered in April.
Promised delivery is 148 days later, or 21 weeks and one day.

Escape won't even be accepting new orders until "early 2016" - and those will all be for 2017! At least a 15 month wait time. I credit a lot of this to the favorable exchange rate with Canada.
