No issues at all for the 6 1/2 years I owned my 19 either. The Bigfoot
trailers I have worked on were had cabinetry work not even as good as the Escapes. I toured a lot of big rigs at the RV show here this spring, and was appalled at the quality of workmanship with all but the more expensive ones.
Funny too, I have heard of very little issue on the Escape
forum about cabinets coming apart.
Escape uses real hardwood for the doors and drawer fronts, the parts that take the most wear, but a thin luan plywood for the carcasses, which is structurally good and light
. Staples are used as surface fasteners, as they don't show like screws would, and hold way better than nails do.
