SHIPSHEWANA, INDIANA – KZ recently introduced the all-new Escape Hatch, expanding its Escape lineup in an innovative direction. “Our versatile Escape Hatch series takes an affordable, ultra-lightweight trailer and adds a large rear door that opens vertically,” noted Nick Francis, KZ product manager. Rounding out the 2021 introduction was trade publication RV Pro naming the Hatch one of their Best New Models for 2021, and RV Business declaring it one of their 2021 Top RV Debuts!

“It really is an honor to receive these recognitions of all our efforts from the leading RV trade publications in North America”, noted Marlene Snyder, VP of sales and marketing. “We’re very appreciative of these awards.”

“Hatch provides tons of storage, loads of fresh air and natural light, and a second overhead covering (under the rear door),” Francis continued. In addition, the Escape Hatch includes a rear screen wall and rear dinette that converts into a huge sleeping surface.

Hatch is initially being offered in three lengths (14’, 17’, and 20’). “For the first time, imagine an under-20-foot, 3,000-pound trailer that has the ability to be easily loaded, and allows you to carry everything from coolers and lawn chairs to bicycles and kayaks,” noted Francis. In fact, with Hatch, you can carry everything you want on your camping expeditions, thanks to the ginormous 60-inch-wide by 66-inch-tall rear hatch door and convenient tie-downs!

Match the Hatch with the new optional Off-Grid/Off-Road package, and you have yourself one dynamite boondocking travel trailer. This new package includes a 100W roof-mounted solar panel, 1,000W inverter with dedicated 110V outlets, solar controller, portable Bluetooth audio player and flashlight, tongue-mounted bike rack, griddle, solar on the side (for additional solar power), aluminum wheels with mud tires, extra ground clearance, electronically-controlled heated holding tanks and double entry steps!

Standards include an aerodynamic front profile with front windshield, Alum-a-Tough seamless roof with 12-year limited warranty, power awning with porch light, 2-burner cooktop, microwave, 8 CU FT 12V refrigerator, and 20K BTU furnace.
