US customers exporting an Escape
Escape says: There are no taxes or duties payable on the purchase , however, a US customer cannot take possession of the trailer in Canada. Fortunately, our facility is only located 15 minutes from the Sumas Washington border crossing. After a viewing and full demonstration of the finished product at our facility, we will deliver the trailer to the border where the customer can take possession. There is a $200 export fee for this process. (Currently being waived - Jan 2009)

The manufacturer says that the body is constructed from a top and bottom shell, which are fiberglassed together at the center prior to demolding to create a seamless body construction. This eliminates any chance of water penetration while maintaining a strong, long-lasting, lightweight RV. The frames are constructed with 3" box steel and a rubber ride torsion axle suspension, creating a solid foundation with a smooth ride.

The interior is "professionally finished with natural oak cabinetry, large windows, high-grade linoleum flooring, and a unique insulated vinyl headliner/wall covering. The Escape includes a large list of standard equipment and a complete options list is available for customizing. A full two-year warranty is included on the complete Escape trailer."
