Re: How long have you spent on the road (or staying in) in your 5.0?

Hi: JCZ... So far we have done two week stretches. Going to do another last two weeks of Aug. back to the east coast. Next year we hope to take a three week trip west to B.C. and after 2013 much longer trips into retirement. We ordered the movie The Kings Speech to watch while away camping, and it's still in the wraper!!! Seems there's always something else to do. Alf

Is it a trailer to be considered for traveling the North American continent upon retirement or is it just to small for that? Just the two of us and our little Maltese, Molly.

*Moderators* There's not a model specific board for each particular model so I wasn't sure where to post this question. Please move it to the board you deem appropriate. Thank you!
Quite a long time ago ( really long ) ...the two of us spent 5 months in a 13 travel trailer (with the only convenience being a toilet - water/power ) for us it is easy to imagine spending many months in a unit as luxurious as the Escape 5.0 , these Escapes are just so well appointed and well put together ...... If one were so inclined full timing wouldn't be a stretch !

All things in life are easier to swallow with a good cup of tea .....

A little more than two months so far and counting, on our Alaska trip in our Escape 5.0. It will be almost two more months before we return home. We couldn't be more happy with the trailer. The size is just right and the layout is perfect for us.

We just returned home from Chilliwack after 28 days in our new 5.0.
With just two adults and good weather on most days, the 5.0 was just the right size for us.
The key is organization, housekeeeping, and less clutter inside.
Our friends in Colorado joined us three nights for dinner and cards inside and we were comfortable.
The great thing was we did not have to take the bed up to accommodate our visitors.

We picked up our new 5.0 this spring and headed down the coast to California on our way home to North Bay, Ontario, Canada. We spent 2 months in the trailer, moving to a new campground at least every 3rd day, and loved it. We move to our cottage for the summer so only use the trailer for those 2 months but plan on doing it every year.
Just the 2 of us. We had a VW camper van before so still don't know what to do with all the space in the 5.0 and our full-size Chevy Silverado.
