HI everyone, My Dad is shopping Scamp 5ers and needs to see a Deluxe up close and personal. He is considering taking a trip to Backus, MN, to see on at the plant, but that is about 600mi from his home. I thought there may be a proud owner closer to us that might be willing to show him the interior of their RV. My husband and I own a '84 basic, and it just doesn't compare to the newer Deluxe models. We're in the Chicagoland, IL area, anybody out there closer to us than 600mi? Thanks, Laura

Hi: Laura Lundgren...Here's a pic of our Escape 5.0 5th. wh. trailer. If your Dad orders one of them...by the time the build date rolls around he can have it completely custom fitted to his desires.

Hi Alf: Thanks for the info, I had never heard of these before! Now we have 2 brands to track down to see the interior, how cool. I contacted Escape and am waiting for a call back, maybe they can help us find an owner around here. How far are you from the Chicagoland area? I have a feeling not close, Google Maps here I come... Thanks again, Laura

Laura, depending on your location in Illinois I may have the closest Escape to you. There are three of them in Wisconsin. Unfortunately none are the 5th wheel. Here in Janesville I have a 19 and Gerda in Madison has a 17. Eric with his 17 is across the state - North of LaCrosse.

The Escape 19 and Escape 5 have a great deal in common, both in size, components and quality. The shape is the major difference.

You should probably get acquainted with the two Escape web sites

www.escapeforum.org - unofficial website
www.escapetrailer.com - the factory website

PM me if you have further questions.

Scamp has a referral program. Give them a call & they'll give you the contact info for someone near you with the model you are looking for.
We got to see exactly the model we were interested in before we placed an order.
If you order a Scamp, the people showing you theirs get $100 from Scamp.
Happy shopping!
