When I compared the structural design, fit & finish, and customizing of Oliver, Bigfoot, and Parkliner when upsizing from a Casita 17, I found the Escape 21 could be the best fit for our needs. Plus I can tow it with a Taco 4x4 V6 instead of a big truck.

All manufacturers will let you in to tour their factory and ask questions before you lay out serious $.

Remember please, no matter how much money you have and no matter what tug you own, the one thing you can never get more of or get back is TIME. Tick, tick, tick. Do NOT delay pleasure, make a memory every single time you can. Buy now... something that suits you, make those memories. NO ONE is guaranteed tomorrow.

Personal plus... I pickup my new Escape 5er one week from tomorrow.

So very true!
Believe me, I know this so well.

The only regrets in life are not what you did do, but rather what you didn't do

Congrats on your new 5-er !!!

Now Jim, you've seen our custom designed and built Oliver. They'll do whatever you want and can afford. Except maybe make it in another color than white!!!

I went to the Oliver factory a month ago and talked to Robert about some custom work I want. He was up for it. The constraint is that the inside "furniture" is molded, so can't be switched around. But with the basic layout, he was willing to put in a composting toilet and an on-demand water heater, as well as some electric mods I want. I'm planning on a double bed at the back, instead of the king, but that doesn't change anything but the way the cushions are cut. Hope to be ordering soon, but have to sell the dang extra house!

I wish you a quick sale on your "extra" house. I think if you are going to have an extra house then it should have wheels ! LOL

The custom mods that I have in mind are also mostly additional components and upgrades. There may be some FG modification and that is something that I'll have to address when the time comes....

Are you considering the 17' or the 22' ?
My recent communication with Robert led me to believe that the 17' would not be available until sometime next year.

I'm looking at the 22' - the more I've thought about it, the more I think I need the space for the menagerie - two cats and an Amazon parrot. There's a fellow picking up a 22' who lives in Tucson. I think he's planning a trip up the east coast before returning, so maybe you could see his. I do recommend a factory tour, though. All your questions can be answered by Robert.

After researching the manufacturers, including quality control, service and support, amenities and options, style, etc I have decided to narrow my search to ESCAPE, BIGFOOT, and OLIVER.

My preference is the OLIVER, but because of the limited numbers produced in the initial offering years ago they are the most difficult to find. I'm a little hesitant to buy an ESCAPE or a BIGFOOT trailer now (unless it was priced where I just couldn't say no) and then have to sell it prior to having one built to spec when OLIVER starts production of the 17' sometime in 2015. Too bad I can't talk them into making a pre-production beta unit.......

Thank you for the links and keeping me in mind.
I was in your same position not long ago. I really wanted one customization to a trailer for specific tank monitor, but none of the current manufacturers would do it. I almost threw in the towel and considered a camplite even though it isn't a four season trailer and then I found Oliver. They already had the tank monitor I wanted and seemingly, many of the aftermarket modifications people perform as part of the stock design. I did consider Bigfoot, but after heading to Oregon to see and possibly drive home with one, while very nice, it just didn't do it for me.
If I hadn't built the waste dump and storage expecting a 17' or I would jump on a 22. I'll stick it out rather than extending the building and having more concrete poured - for the time being...

I will continue to search for the elusive OLIVER 17' until the factory starts making them again sometime next year. After talking with Robert at the factory I am told that there have been numerous requests for the 17' and that it will produced again but not anytime soon.
