UNMATCHED QUALITY & DURABILITY
The Classic has been in production for more than 20 years now and has become America's most beloved trailer. There's a reason why certain things become classics and, for the original Escapade Trailer, there is more than one. The original Escapade Trailer design, the Classic continues to offer the same high quality workmanship and performance of all our trailers. Designed with simplicity in mind, the Escapade Classic is perfect for the minimalist adventurer who needs a bit more tourng capacity, but wants a lightweight compact trailer to do the job.
Escapade Trailer is the only manufacturer that combines the body and frame of the trailer to make a single unit. Our steel T-Chassis is integrated into the trailer body which lowers the trailer's center of gravity and ensures stable performance in all riding situations. This gives the trailer a smooth, flat surface over which air can travel unobstructed and also creates longitudinal and latitudinal, greatly enhancing the cargo deck's strength.
The Escapade Trailer's legendary handling is the product of a brilliantly engineered suspension system. Our trailers incorporate an air shock system with an independent trailing swing arm design. The shocks have been designed for us by the industry leader - Progressive Suspension, Inc. The special damping cartridge gives superior damping even when the trailer is towed empty, meaning no bounce under every condition. These Progressive air shocks are used in all models except the Eclipse which uses a Progressive coil over spring shock.
Escapade Trailer's superb tracking is due in part to its United States Department of Transportation approved 12-inch wheel and 4.80 x 12" tubeless tire. The larger than average wheels and tires have a more positive gyroscopic effect when turning at highway speeds. The increased width has more tread to road surface contact and grips the road to eliminate the swaying tendencies of thinner tires. And because it is a standard automotive size, it is easily replaced even in those out-of-way rural areas. (Standard equipment is painted white wheel. Chrome wheels are available as an option)
BODY & FINISH
Our bodies are hand made and custom finished at our factory. Our in-house fiberglass and paint departments insure the highest degree of quality control and the color match capability is unsurpassed. Bodies are painted using top of the line urethane paints and clears, with a 2-3 part paint process and 3 clear coats. For GL1800 colors, we use the same paints and clears supplied to Honda. Bodies are wet sanded and then polished in a two-step process to achieve an amazing paint finish
Greater visibility means greater safety. Escapade Trailer exceeds the trailer light standards set by the United States Department of Transportation. All lighting is connected to the bike's power supply with a substantial wiring harness that is firmly secured inside the trailer. There is no external wiring except at the tongue connection. For even more visibility, request the spoiler with L.E.D. brake light
Spaciousness that can't be beat. With an Escapade you will get over 25 cu. Ft of storage space, including an integrated spare tire compartment and utility storage areas that are designed to maintain a flat surface on the trailer deck (LE, SE and Elite models).
