My experience with Escape Trailer Industries
It has been one year since I ordered an Escape 17B, eight months since I began selecting interior finishes and considering options, and fifteen weeks since collecting my trailer. Here’s what I got for my time and money:
Now I’ve enjoyed seven camping trips with my E17B, used it twenty-six days, towed it 3,129 trouble-free miles, and know it is just the camper I wanted it to be. Small outside, easy to tow, set-up, and care for. Open and roomy inside, with an efficient and versatile floor plan, full galley, adequate wet bath, ample storage and plenty of ventilation.
Standard features I especially like:
Options added for use as a camper are few: air conditioner, kitchen window, dual 6V batteries, outside shower and a half dozen lesser amenities.
What could be better:
All in, I got a quality build of a well-designed trailer, personalized to my taste and intended use, at a competitive price. Time and money well spent!
- Shopping for a trailer
- Friends suggesting Escape
- Confused about towing and you (Karl) taking the time to call and coach us early on.
- Making the decision last year to purchase
- Every step of the way with each person at Escape was an enjoyable experience.
We picked up the trailer today. Everything was very smooth with the delivery company. We are sooooo happy with the trailer
Making a big purchase like this sight unseen is a bit nerve racking, but we are so happy with your product….even better than our highest expectations. We can’t wait to hit the road!
Thanks to all at Escape who made this a great experience, from start to finish.

Hope this note is finding you and family doing well.
I know I have sent you notes complimenting you and Escape employees during our reservation time frame.
Today I just wanted to send you a quick note to once again compliment. We had our “four month before delivery” call with Linda. Wow. We had a list of questions that we were able to ask her and received 95% of the answers during the call. There were a few questions that she quickly answered “let me find out and I will get back with you” and she did within one day via email. With pictures!
As rookies in the travel trailer type of camping, I have been able to go to the forum to help us decide what we needed and wanted. It also allowed us to know which questions to ask Linda. Her thoughts and knowledge helped us with final decisions.
You really have a great team. Enjoy this backlog ride and I am sure it will continue for you and the team.
BTW, I am not a large social media type of guy, so posting things is not my specialty. However, if your sales team needs a “verbal” type of referral for a client that may be on the fence, I would be happy to be a person that your team can provide my contact information in order for me to share our experience with the buyers as they try to decide. I guess it would be a type of ambassador, but without the need to show them the trailer at this time since we don’t have the trailer yet.
Stay safe, and thank you, Rick Anixter
We received our Escape 5.0 last Tuesday in Redwood City. Delivery was flawless, driver and towing company assisted in unloading trailer, helping with the hitch and driver gave some instruction on operating the landing gear. I can’t believe you are able to deliver at such a low cost and I greatly appreciate it.
All systems check out and operate perfectly, have been having fun this last week adding accessories and making modifications to personalize our new trailer. The online Escape videos are very helpful. I’ve just about finished my projects, Terri will start outfitting her kitchen this week. We are anxious to travel, looking forward to when we gain ground against the virus so parks can open up.
Thank you and all the folks at Escape for building and providing a beautiful and well-made product. I can see why Escape has such a strong enthusiastic following of owners and soon to be owners.
Hopefully, we can get back to some form of normal and maybe see you at the rally next year.
Thank you and stay well, Terri & Gary Moore
We received our trailer Wednesday and are very happy. It’s nice to have some good news for a change! Everything is as we expected, well made, and shows great attention to detail. As we spent a good deal of time on sailboats, the interior reminds me of a boat cabin, and I keep expecting to be rocking with the waves. That’s a good thing for sure! Thanks for all your help. I think she looks happy in her new home port!
Stay well, Kate and Greg Garrett
Sharon, Elaine, Melisa, Dave, & Bob and all the staff that have truly made our “purchase experience” absolutely one of the best we have ever had. We received our incredible designed, engineered, and manufactured Travel Trailer last Monday, May 4.
Right from the beginning, when I first inquired with Melisa about purchasing the trailer all the way through to deliver we were treated with very caring service. It’s what I call the “human side of business”. All questions and concerns were always answered promptly, and in many cases, we were advised of features we did not even know were basic with the trailer. Sharon made sure delivery arrangements were coordinated to meet our travel plans. When we arrived we were about an hour early of appointment time. The trailer was ready to go. Everyone dropped what they were doing and immediately made our pick up happen extremely professionally and timely. Dave and Bob, both extremely knowledgeable, made sure we understood the operational part of the trailer and I learned a lot about the proper way to hook it up. I have had over 30 years of pulling travel trailers and after Bob finished I now know a lot more about hooking up for safer and more enjoyable towing. My wife, Sandy, and I are extremely grateful and we can honestly say the whole experience went, “Way Beyond Our Expectations”.
After leaving the property, we stopped for lunch and were approached by a complete stranger wanting to know where we got our great looking trailer. Needless to stay we were delighted to tell them our story… I am sure it will not be the last time.
Our very best regards, Doug and Sandra Anderson
Just have to shout out to the amazing customer service team at Escape. That alone is worth buying an Escape! Even with COVID we are able to tentatively pick up our E5.0 the first week of June! Seriously, the nicest people ever!!

So, I was just in my trailer putting some things away. As I finished, I sat down at the dinette and just looked at things. The fit and finish on this trailer is superb. It is so nice. I am really proud to own it.
When I first looked at Escape, honestly, I first became interested in you guys due to my limited budget. I, like most people, usually can afford only about 75% of what I really want. So, I make compromises. Sometimes those compromises end up making my purchase decision something I regret.
But in this case, I actually don’t feel I have compromised at all. I think Escape makes a super high-quality product that delivers a great bang for the buck. I feel I received all the features I want and need, and the completed package is really high quality. I feel like I paid for a Ford, but received the quality of a Mercedes Benz.
So, thanks for everything. I love my new trailer!
Received our ESCAPE in good order… your driver was wonderful as we totally expected. We spent the night in a rest area and just got home an hour ago.
It is SO MUCH FUN to have an escape and we are THRILLED with the fabric. The colors tie in with the rest of the “decor”. Where does the excitement end?
There was very little traffic on the roads and the driving was pleasant. No worries about viruses. (We put LARGE masks on the fronts of our truck and trailer and sprayed sanitizer on the tires when we got home…you never know!)
We stopped for burgers in Ellensberg and the people there said “we love your trailer” then we stopped for gas and the attendant came out of his sterile environment to ask about it. I think we are going to need more cards! Even with the minimal traffic we had two cars pull up next to us to check it out.
Tell Sharon we haven’t broken the toilet in yet…we’re saving that for a special occasion.
Linda… want you to know we have absolutely no buyer’s remorse and feel it isn’t just a purchase, it is an investment. We are also very comforted to know that your follow-up customer service will be as stellar as we have received thus far. Thanks to all of you for that and know that we feel we have made great new Canadian friends in the process. If you’re ever in Spokane, you have first class 21′ accommodations at the Fisher house.
Good luck to you all,
Warmest, Joan & David Fisher
PS. Never let your guard down, we could be back!
To each and every person at Escape,
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
We received delivery of our beautiful 21-foot Escape trailer on April 6th of 2020. Even though these are trying times, our days are now filled, marveling at the fabulous craftmanship, skill, and expertise displayed in every detail of our trailer. In the process of admiring every aspect your work, and the beautiful cabinetry, it came to us that the important feedback that comes from watching customers marvel at your work, must be missing right now. So, we’re writing this letter to let you know, as best we can, how amazed we are at the talents of each and every one of you.
If you could have followed us for the last two days, admiring every detail you so skillfully attended to, it would have done your hearts proud. When I say that, know that we aren’t newbie’s in the camping world. Know that when we repeatedly oohed and awed over your work, we’ve owned a fiberglass camping trailer for 14 years, that saw consistent use, before we stepped up to this wonderful Escape. Know also, that my wife Barbara is quite keen on cleanliness, and that even on this score, you amazed her and I at the cleanliness in every corner.
When the skill and attentiveness of your work becomes so evident, one should be rewarded. Obviously, the biggest reward, is in the rewards towards one’s pride that you must surely get from watching people’s reactions. I’ve observed repeatedly, after thirty-five years as an advertising and annual report photographer, how important this feedback is to skilled people; that it’s at the core of why such skill and talent becomes obvious, of why such attention to detail exists… and also, that it’s why it’s such a rare commodity in the world.
So… this is our attempt to let you know that we’re amazed at your work. To every person at Escape, from the sales people, to the talented individuals at the mold shop, the welders, outfitters, carpenters, electricians, plumbers, insulators, the skilled upholstery persons, the cleaning crew, and detailers – and to Joldie, Sharon, Melisa, Meagan, Elaine, and Karl, and to each and every one of you as individuals, there are enough oohs and ahs going on around here to fill your hearts with pride – and you deserve it!
Someday, we hope to come and say thanks in person! Until then, stay safe, and stay healthy.
Impressed, Dan and Barbara Stroud
Introduce yourself and your family!
Matthew and Beverley. We live in Edmonton Alberta. We have one child who is grown and married and they live close by also here in Edmonton. Our son-in -law is 6’5” and we wanted a trailer he could stand up in! We have 2 fur babies named Newton and Maxwell. The verdict is still out as to whether they will become trailer/camping cats.
Where is home and what is the climate like?
Edmonton is home and we get all kinds of weather. From -40C to 35C and weather can change quickly so we are not surprised by snow in June or 10C in February. It can be -28C one week and 2C the following week. Or in summer 32C one day and 10C the next day. Crazy!!
What Escape model did you purchase?
0ur Escape is a 5.0 and is a baby at 1 month old
Did you consider any other brand?
We researched trailers for 3 ish years. We considered Winnebago, Airstream, Little Guy Max, NuCamp, Casita, and Oliver Travel Trailers. When we settled on fibreglass construction we included Escape trailers and once we researched Escape the choice became obvious! Escape was for us!
Did you have your Escape delivered or did you pick it up?
Picked up my Escape
How was the pick up experience like?
Our pick up was May 26th 2021. We were a mix of emotions between excited and nervous as we had limited experience with trailer towing. We were confident we did loads of research and even took an on line trailer towing course before pick up but… still nervous!! Dave guided us through hook up and covered some other basic information. He was so great! He made the hook up seem so easy… almost too easy but then we were on our way and really towing this trailer… for reals!! So exciting!!
Have you adventured in your Escape yet? If so, where did you go and what was it like?
Our first adventure was the drive back to Edmonton, Alberta. We limited each day of driving to a maximum of 3 hours so that we would have ample time to get to know the trailer and it’s systems and not be too stressed by the driving. This also allowed us time to rest & enjoy a few days at each of the campgrounds we stayed at along the way. The process of hooking up became easier and our confidence backing up/parking, managing fresh/grey/black tanks and general driving through mountain roads increased so much in just 12 days!
What were your top options you added?
Solar, 2 way hot water tank, flush mount stove/oven combo, Lagun table, AC
Any options you would have like to get that would make life easier on the road?
Can’t think of any just yet
Any options you got that you now think are not necessary?
Nope! We originally thought we’d get AC as it would be best for resale (though we’ve no intention of selling EVER!) and didn’t think we would need AC as our history with tent camping in Alberta has always been rain and cold. But driving home through the Kootenay’s proved to us that AC is needed and we are so thankful we have it!
We are the most excited Escape trailer newbies you’ve ever met! We have 5 more trips planned this summer and we’ve excitedly shown the trailer to friends and family. We’ve already talked with strangers in campgrounds and the neighborhood about our 5.0 It seems in Alberta these trailers are a curiosity for many and we are so happy to show our 5.0 baby off!
