Looks like they used 3 different LE2’s for the interior pictures.

Nice catch, I probably would have missed that,

At least they  didn't use the Oliver  specs...

A friend recently  ordered one  of those Escape 5th wheels. I  wish I liked their  trailers  as  much  as I like the Oliver as it would  have been convenient for  me to buy from  someone just 5 hours' drive from  me instead of from  TN.

In case somebody doesn’t know what is going on….

I really like that Escape mini fiver in concept, but who wants to give up 75% of his in bed storage when the trailer storage volume and payload is so limited? Not me. And what happened to the second axle in that bottom pic? I thought all of these were tandems.

That is a really lame magazine, full of hastily researched cut¬†and paste information - not enough content¬†and too many full page pictures. The Aqua-Hot article (hydronic heating) has a glaring mistake, they claim it uses the same non-toxic antifreeze as your engine‚Äôs¬†radiator and that¬†you use for winterization of the plumbing. ¬†They did say in that article that the RV industry is ‚Äútransitioning away from propane‚ÄĚ. Is that correct? If so, that¬†is the¬†first I have heard of that welcome trend.

The early models of the Escape fifth wheels only had one axle. Apparently nobody was paying any attention to the models either. The single axle would be several, several years old.

Because those Oliver interiors look so great???

Somebody obviously pulled old file photos, and mixed them generously. 

Just like incorrectly modifying a cake recipe, it fell flat...

What it actually looks like inside, is just as you'd expect from the etchasketch exterior design. 

Its really light,for a fifth wheel. That's my best comment, and I'll shut up. Not for me. I think I'm allergic to all brown ....

Like I've said many times, everyone has to choose what's best, for them.

When looking for RVs I quickly zeroed in on fiberglass trailers.  I looked at Casita as they are so close.   Interior was a no go. Just felt cheap and carpet a huge turn off.  Same for Scamp.   Escape seems like a step up from those two but still not the same and while 5th wheel interesting interior was a hard pass. No trailer is perfect but Oliver interior are like nothing else.  Now it isn’t for everyone but I smile every time I step inside my Ollie!

Yeah we're all different. I  like the feel of the  wood in the Escapes  and while  the wall  surface isn't my favorite neither  is the starkness of the all shiny white interior of the Oliver which looks like it was used as a set for the Michael/Janet Jackson  video Scream. But other factors tipped me to buying a TN based trailer rather than the one five hours from me just across the  border in  BC (most decisive was the  interior plumbing on  the Ollie versus the exterior on the  Escape  with the option to have foam sprayed over it and electric heat pads added under the tanks - the Oliver seems like a better four-ish  seasons design). The formica and flooring and upholstery on the Escape can  be customized with a very wide range of options available btw. There are other details on that list such as molded in versus screwed on cabinets etc. That said I toured the Escapes up in Chilliwack and liked them much more than other campers I'd seen up to  that point in terms of build and aesthetic. What really bums me out are the  RVs with dark stained wood cabinets and big baralounger type seating and such (the  seventies are calling to get their designs back!!).

I've done a few modifications to help soften the feel of the  interior - putting  some fabric on the  walls in the corners at the back and also on the ceiling above  the  beds (covers the a/c which  we'll at most rarely use - takes twenty seconds to remove via velcro attachment - and then replace - if we do want to use the  a/c) and putting photos on most of the surfaces where  they'll fit and  look good and not get kitchen mess on them.

I like wood accents, too, like the beautiful ones Foy creates. I love the clean (and cleanable) white walls of our Ollie. 

And, I  agree, everyone is different.  That's why there are so many choices out there.

Yeah though a photo of the cabinets and ceiling is probably a bit different. Yeah we are no strangers to having our stuff filling our camper having used a class b van for two decades and in the Oliver it's similar if spread out just a bit more. But still we are liking having taken some steps to soften the Scream-like aspects of the interior. In ways that allow us to easily remove the decor for cleaning btw ūüôā
