Escape trailers is truly a custom build manufacturer. I remember years ago, having my first individual home built, I went to a custom home company. He said to me, the house is 30x40 on the outside, on the inside you can have 6 small bedrooms or 2 giant bedrooms, did not make any difference to him, hardwood or carpet, all the same to him. I had to meet him weekly and tell them where the phones, electrical, closets were to be placed. When done it was the way I wanted. Escape is the same, they will let you use items from other models, move cabinets, move windows, add or delete, all the same to them.
When done you have the trailer the way you want it, not the way the manufacturer wanted it. Airstreams will not make any changes to their designs nor allow any substitutions, Escape will. When delivered it was ready to be camped in.

I hope so, this was my 7th camper in 4 years, a Hyperlite toy hauler, 16' Road Runner. 17' T@da, Lance 1880, EggCamper, Lance 1575, and hopefully my last, the Escape 19. You have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince!!

Looks very nice and tailored to your taste. If it's not too impolite to ask, how much did all those options and custom features add to the cost? As the saying goes..."custom costs".

I was only charged the published prices on the Escape's website, plus some custom options that did not exceed a couple of hundred $$. Reace was very accommodating and even performed some "gratis" additions. I was fortunate to have slipped into a cancelled availability slot in July while talking to Tammy in May after selling my camper in May. The stars lined up right this time.

Wow, 7 campers in 4 years. Almost like high school girl friends. Really hope you found the one this time and get some free time to enjoy 'her'. Hoping the frog your kissing is a "princess and not a prince".

7 trailers in 4 years, wow ! i will have to let every one in our family ( I get alot of comments about how many trailers we have had) know that our 6 trailers in 10 years is actualy pretty good. although we were on a run of a new trailer every year for a while. I am very confident that our 19 ft escape will be a keeper. What sort of custom changes did you make Jim? aside from regular options?

Congratulations Jim! What a great camper!

I will be very interested to hear how that extra installation works out come Winter. A good report may force me to consider an Escape 19.

And ... if you feel an itch to move onto an 8th trailer, drop me a line.

Hope you love everything about it and use it in the best of health!

Nice Jim. Congratulations. I especially like the microwave above the fridge. The micro has got to be one of the top 3 "must have" appliances in an rv IMHO. Let us know if the trade off was the right thing to do with the space.

PS..from this X5 owner about the only time a BMW doesn't give you grief is when it's boxed up in a container. :-) They ain't what they used to be! :-)

You'll have infinitely more fun for le$$ with an Escape.

Happy trails.

And I lovin' the idea of the little window in the shower area. That is gonna be great to evacuate humidity from the shower. I'm assuming you have a powered vent in the bathroom ceiling ?
