1- the type of glue used today in not on the EPA list... it is considered safe and used in new homes.. even in California.
2- there are formaldehyde free boards today should Escape care to use them or should you want to order your escape with them
3- where, should the board off gas, can the gas go? Where in the trailer is there exposure to the board gasses?
4- lots of paints available for sealing off gassing woods.
5- obviously thankful that the cabinets are oak

Just my take/questions on it.

That's good information Jim. Sometimes I feel the forum has turned into a gian fan club for Escape Trailers

Don't get me wrong though, if I could buy a 15' Escape I would be first in line!
There is no giant fan club that I can see.
If you want a new trailer, how many brands can you pick from?
Compare the brands and what they have to offer and pick... but its not about rooting... like a fan club.

I am happy with my 17 Casita with all its faults.
But I still want an Escape 19 for just my reasons that's all.

Although there are a lot of postings supporting Escape I think there is good reason for it being as how Reece and his wife are both members here and the Escape trailer was basically born here, Reece asked a lot of questions and got a lot of answers and used many suggestions from the folks here that went into a very fine product. If I was to buy new I would take a serious look at the Escape

Is this the new escape factory location? Or have they not moved yet?

I wonder which type is used in the new Escapes? Also what type of glue they use to adhere the wall foam.

3- where, should the board off gas, can the gas go? Where in the trailer is there exposure to the board gasses?

Well if they are the bunk hatch boards, as Booker mentioned, then they would outgas into the trailer, no?

It's my observation that most (all?) campers are made with quite a number of fairly toxic materials that would be outgassing for some time*; but that seems to be the nature of the beast. I think that at this point, one would have to make a fairly concerted effort to get a new trailer that didn't have this issue. That's one point in the favor of an older trailer.

Not specifically picking on Escape here, just to make it clear. They look like nice trailers, and from what I hear, the owners are very nice to work with.

Raya

*Fiberglass itself; foam/vinyl wall insulation and glue; cushion foam; vinyl or carpet flooring; plywood or OSB hatches; fabrics, etc.
