The Escape 17A
As the 17’A has no wet bath, it is the perfect crossover from tent camping. This is a lightweight travel trailer for a greener footprint. No bathroom enables a permanent bed and a 4-person dinette as well as a fair-sized wardrobe. The single axle and shorter length make it a great trailer for smaller roads and tighter turns.
Two Piece Fiberglass Shell Construction
The 17’ Escape represents high quality. The 100% molded fiberglass body is made in a two-piece mold. Our fiberglass team bonds the upper and lower halves together before the shell is demolded and bolted to the frame. Anchor blocks are fiberglassed in strategic points inside the trailer to which interior walls and natural oak cabinetry are securely mounted, creating a solid, structurally sound interior/exterior. This solid one-piece fiberglass shell is strong, durable, easy to clean and completely waterproof.
Lightweight & Aerodynamic Design
There are many key features about the Escape which make it lightweight and aerodynamic, keeping travel costs to a minimum. With a dry weight of only 1970lbs (Plan A) or 2400lbs (Plan B), the Escape 17’ has been designed specifically for mid-sized vehicles such as mini-vans, SUVs and mid-sized trucks with a V6 engine or a minimum towing capacity of 4000lbs. The aerodynamic design of the Escape 17’ includes a low center of gravity for better road stability and low wind resistance or drag when in tow. This combined with the rubber torsion suspension axle not only reduces vibration while traveling but also provides independent suspension and is maintenance free. All of our Radial Tires (including the full size spare) are balanced before you pick up your trailer.
The Escape 17A comes standard with an easy and comfortable galley style kitchen with a 3 cubic foot fridge, a permanent bed and a dinette or two dinettes both of which can convert to sleeping area’s. The interior is professionally finished with natural maple or oak cabinetry, large windows, high-grade linoleum flooring and a unique insulated vinyl headliner/wall covering.
