WANTED: Escape

Interested in buying an Escape 17 or 19, I am located in Western MT and hoping to locate one within a few hundred miles. I hope the bed and interior are tall enough for me--I am 6'2" . Would like to hear from other taller owners about their experiences. Thanks in advance.

If you have not already done so head on over the Escape Owners Forum. I think you will find that many of the Escapes that are put up for sale are posted there and not here or Craigslist.

Most of the ads on the Escape Forum Classified pages are 'Wanted'.

Yes indeed ! Welcome to the wonderful world of molded fiberglass trailers, where demand greatly exceeds supply.

Could very well be, but if one comes up for sale it's typically posted there first before other sites. Since no one not currently on the production schedule will get a new trailer until (minimum) March 1, 2017... used units are stamped up very, very fast.

You snooze, you lose.

Yup and if they are priced correctly it is not uncommon for them to sell the same day posted - sometimes within a few hours - sight unseen to someone on the other side of the US or Canada.

Which is why one needs to check the forums multiple times a day to have any hope of buying a used one

Brian, here's a couple more resources.

Molded Fiberglass Travel Trailers For Sale | Fiberglass RV's For Sale

"Molded Fiberglass RV's For Sale"

SearchTempest: Search all of Craigslist nationwide & more

"All of craigslist, eBay & more in one search."

List of Small travel trailers for sale

The link above will take you Camperfinds.com filtered to "small trailers, nationwide"; I am not clear what "small" is, but I see some molded fiberglass trailers included there. You may want to back out to the home page and set it up to search differently. Here's a map view of all travel trailers for sale:

Map of Travel trailers for sale

"Looking for a used camper? We search the web for EVERY camper for sale (over 1,300 found today), then map and compare them for you. No motorhomes, no year-old listings, no dealer inventories, no forms to fill out. So stop searching and start shopping!"

Happy hunting!

Thanks for all the suggestions. I agree that used Escapes do not seem to stay on the market long. I plan to go see a used Bigfoot 17 next week.

The 19' Escape is wider than the 17' so the 19' bed can be longer. I think you'd be happier with the greater width.

Escape 17B in Montana

Hi Brian, I'm in Whitefish and may be selling our 2004 Escape 17B (no toilet/shower) to upgrade to a new 19-footer with queen bed. I haven't listed it yet or put a price on it, but if you happen to be near Whitefish I would be happy to show it to you. When we ordered it from Escape, this was the 29th one they manufactured. It's an oldie buy goodie, in great shape. We have loved the Escape trailer.

No toilet/shower would be a 17A
17B has toilet/shower.
