Hello Bob and welcome to the forum. I'm not sure what your question is but if it's in regard to Escape trailers this is a good place to look. The Escape is built in western Canada and is so popular, there is a long wait for new ones. Used ones don't last long either. The web site is Escape Trailer Industries – Chilliwack, British Columbia. There is also a forum dedicated to the brand. Escape Trailer Owners Community

Lots of owners here so if you have questions please ask. Raz

Welcome to FGRV Bob. You didn't say what you are planning on using for a tow vehicle. You may want to do a check of the thread for "real world weights" to see what these rigs really weigh.....road ready. Builders weights are way light in the real world, empty, but it sounds good for sales. I don't know how to bring that thread up for you. Some one will be along soon that can do it.

We just bought a new Escape 19'. It works well, but take notes during the orientation, because the manual is not very useful, particularly regarding electrical systems. Had to call several manufacturers to get the solar panel working.

BJ, next time just ask here. You'll get lots of answers and one of them might be correct. Oh, and welcome to the forum. Raz

I'd be very careful about buying any trailer that is '58 years young' ! That's a very early model. Does it's towing machine use Gas, Diesel, or Hay ?

But, welcome to the FGRV forums, Bobbymack. There's loads of assistance herein.

Me, too

I retired and left upstate NY 16 months ago. Fulltiming in a 2015 Casita Deluxe, 17 ft. Couldn't be happier. Studied all my options while selling our house, which took about 2 years.
