They don't use Goofy rivets...they switched to Mickey Mouse rivets years ago.
I think the Escape
market went almost entirely to the overall expansion of of the demand for quality fiberglass construction in travel trailers.The specific choice for Escape
is driven far more by the larger size (increasing with each new model) than by the REWFS construction method or the rejection of any other brand or construction methods. Proof of that is that Scamp
sales are still at capacity even with several new brands and a doubling of production.
As you know the "R" in REWFS was added to aggravate you
(very successfully I might add
) and it will be dropped when you drop your canard about through the hull fastening systems that other manufacturers have used successfully for decades, since it is about equally legitimate.
was available when you bought your Scamp
as was Trillium
, both fine trailers which you failed to research, otherwise you would be finding fault with an Escape today instead of a Scamp!
I think that burial comment was either taken out of context or wishful thinking on your part.
Now, what about that adhesives comment, after all, cars are starting to have glued panels instead of welded. Wouldn't glue eliminate both problems and allow the versatility of rivets and a smooth exterior?
Change is inevitable, but it is not always improvement.
I have made changes to every vehicle and trailer I have owned, I think they were all improvements but I admit to being subjective.
Your trailer has many well executed changes which are all of course, "improvements".
