Tools to serve you through your 3-step RV process

Step 1: Before

If you’re new to traveling or looking to upgrade your tent to a trailer, look no further. You’ll find the solution to all of your camping needs below.

Best interests at heart
Look for a manufacturer that has been in business a long time and has an excellent reputation. Watch out for commission-based salespeople, too.  Don’t get blindsided and upgraded into a rig that you don’t have your heart set on. Escape can guarantee that your specialist is trying to get you the best RV for you instead of up-selling you for commission. 

Reviews allow you and us to gauge customer satisfaction. When we receive feedback, we take it to heart and make sure your purchasing experience is exceptional, instead of dreadful.

RV types

There are many RV types on the market to choose from, depending on whether you prefer a small compact, lightweight travel trailer or a larger fifth wheel that sits over the truck’s bed. Deciding which trailer is best for you is an important decision. Not sure what RV is best? Check out our quiz

Common questions

It’s important to keep track of all your questions, so you feel 100% comfortable in your journey. Look for honest responses to them and that no manufacture or dealership avoids answering one. Transparency and honesty are essential qualities to look for. 

If I’m from the US, do I need to pay Canadian taxes?

No. You will only need to pay state taxes because the product is being exported to you.

How do I pick up my trailer?

In the United States, you can pick up your trailer at a Hub location, or we’ll meet you at Sumas Washington, or you can arrange a custom delivery. 

In Canada, you can arrange a custom delivery or pick-up at Escape Trailer HQ in Chilliwack, BC.

Trip recommendations

  • Change your tow vehicle oil every 3,000 miles
  • Make sure your battery is charged – you’ll be remotely camping and you don’t want to get stuck alone on a mountain road
  • Always have more water than you need
  • Maintain your wastewater system
  • Make sure brakes are working – they have a lot of additional weight on them
