Floyd that extra year I have on you for ownership must be the difference. But, I'm considering doing something about it!

Selling it and buying an Escape 5.0?

Probably because of those who own new trailers, Escape owners are disproportionately represented among high-use participants at this particular forum.

Bingo, you win the prize for the best answer. In addition, due to the newness of Escapes, we haven't had half the issues a lot of the members have had due to age of their units, thus little complaints and a lot of gloats!!!

AND, FiberglassRV has existed a lot longer than the EscapeForum. In fact, it was here that Reace first asked "what would you like in an all molded fiberglass towable." Boy did we give him and Tammy an earful . I'd like to believe all of us that were members back "in the day," helped with what is now the Escape line of trailers.

Absolutely, and just remember that dreams can come true.

I also believe it comes from how pleased with the whole experience of buying a new Escape is too. It truly was a fun and enjoyable experience where you truly believe you are getting good value and service, something that does not always happen in purchased of this sort, and gets one set to tooting their horn about it.

There is no doubt that folks here had a major influence into what went into their trailers. Heck, he even included a model 'B' after changes I requested, and then when that was the way almost everyone wanted to go, dropped the original layout. All it was was swapping the kitchen to the passenger side, where he had the furnace and fridge. Tammy said the 'B' is for Bennett. She knows how to make a guy smile.

Not likely, not even another 20years! I wouldn't trade for any other trailer, and certainly not for something too large to tow. Our trailer has appointments which compliment the oak interior giving it a warm and comfortable feel like a quality sailboat.
I don't know whether yours is Oak or Birch but you could do the door panels with wallpaper, which might prevent the regrets which are bound to come with paint, since wallpaper could be removed.

Rest assured Floyd, it won't be "paint." I wonder how a green stain would look My Scamp is Eastern Maple. I've only seen one other Scamp (same vintage) made with the maple. They must have had a sale on the wood in 1987-1988.

That seems to be due to the disproprtionate number of high-use participants on this forum which are from the left coast or north of the 49th parallel. I have been to scores of rallies over the last decade, all over the U.S., and recall having seen exactly one.(it was a 5.0)
They are just not that common east of the Rockies in the U.S.

??? Escape has been making trailers for 12 years so there are a number of Escapes around that are not all that new. I suspect the high participation is due to the shear number of owners of them. As I mentioned previously they were the second most popular trailer at the big Bandon meet and the way their numbers have jumped each year they may hold number #1 spot in a very short time... who knows... maybe even this July.

Pretty sure there just as many if not more Escape owners south of the 49th than there are north of the 49th, all be it the majority are on the left coast.

I have yet to meet anyone that was not impressed with the extra width of my Bigfoot.

Having looked at narrow trailers I'm not sure I could be happy with one.

Having said that I spend most of my time outdoors but in the evening it sure is nice going into a trailer that has room to turn.
Never was much into camping in tents even though I did that most of my life.
I feel like a king in the trailer.
