There are a lot of people who love the Escape trailers on this forum. Escape is a larger company so they may also be able to provide better support and references then Outback. That being said, there have been no complaints that I can remember about the Outback OR the Escape.
There are 3 companies now using the old 1970's Trillium
Fiberglass Mold. Outback out of Calgary, Escape out of Chilliwack, and Trillium
RV out of Nevada. Escape makes the mold's for Trillium
RV company who then finish it in the USA
The big difference between the Escape and the Outback is the cabinets. Outback uses the original 70's design of all fiberglass cabinets inside (as does Trillium RV). Escape uses plywood cabinets. Most of the finishing equipment (applicances, wheels etc..) are all from similar companies with similar warranties.
