I've yet to see the inside of an Escape
, though I've seen them in campground, and looked at their website. The biggest difference seems to be tabbing and rivets.. However, I've spent a lot of time camping with my friend who owns a Casita
. (over 15,000 miles together, many months, following each other and camping.)
still looks (and smells) brand new after two years and many miles and months of camping. The carpet walls don't bother her, just the carpet floors, which she plans to replace with laminate this year. She bought hers (barely) used, at a very decent price.
You're (relatively) close to Rice. You might want to go take a closer look.
Local pricing and availability might make a difference in your final decision. Most of the "systems"... a/c, water pump, heater, etc., are in all likelihood the same. Escape still has some kind of "liner" on the inner walls, as they're not double hulled. I'm sure Casita owners will chime in, but I don't believe the Casita carpet is organic, so I don't think it can mold.
Unfortunately, I've never seen an EggCamper
