Hello everyone, new to the forum and I thought I would share some pictures and videos I took today. I took a road trip up to Canada today to check out the new 19' Escape since my parents just put in an order for one. I took a few pictures that you can see on Flicker and I also took two videos, one of the 19' Escape and one of the Escape assembly lines.

Here is a link to the pictures:

Here is a video of the 19' Escape

I have to mention that this was just the assembly area. They had a wood working shop next door and the mold plant was at the other end of town...

I have never been a fan of OSB (Oriented Strand Board). It's been known as a serious out gas material. I am surprised that Escape chose to use it (unpainted) as hatch cover doors. Currently it's very close to the price of 1/2-5/8 plywood in BC so maybe it's a weight issue?

BookerB,
I'd agree with that. I was surprised a year ago or so when I looked at photos and saw a lot of strandboard in use in the interiors. Perhaps there's some new low emitting version in use here?

Fiberglass itself is almost zero outgas emitting when cured, so offers few problems. It's the other stuff added inside (foam, carpet, OSB, some types of insulation, certain adhesives, etc.) that can cause many of us problems.

Great photos and vids Kevin.

Booker, exterior grade plywood and OSB use the same formaldehyde to bond the fibers together. The amount of offgassing is pretty much the same in them, and with the types of formaldehyde commonly used, the offgas is not as bad as the stuff used in the past. I am not sure what Escape uses, but formaldehyde free sheathing is available in some markets.

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!
