But I was surprised at my mpg numbers as well as my low rpm at 80 mph.
More like 600/day over 5 days..
so you're going almost 80 mph and less than 2k rpm...and ECO appears to be ON (running on half # of cylinders?)...the Hemi ain't even sweating..guessing this horse is going to last a long time!
looking forward to your results with the trailer.

Yes, I only had 12k miles when the trip started and now at 15K she seems to keep getting broken in and better gas. I am using 89 octane or better gas and my range after fill ups goes to around 500 miles. Not once did it go over 3500 rpms over the mountains in Montana. Will analyze more on trip home while hooked up.

2017 5.0TA News

Emailed ETI last night for update on when they think a 2017 5.0TA demo will be available for viewing, this is response I received this morning.

"Hello Kent,
Thank you for your email.

We are very excited as we have just heard the new molds should arrive November 15, 2016 with the first trailer enter production November 18, 2016. We expect this trailer to be completed by December 18 and available for viewing shortly thereafter. Please note we do anticipate some delays with this first trailer as we will not be able to order cabinet door until after this trailer is well into production."

Warm regards,
Tammy Harmatuik, Business Manager

There is no special route around Seattle - best you can do is I-90W to I-405 and head North.

You could cut North through eastern Washington on 97 and cut over towards Chilliwack through Canada, but I'm not sure I'd want to go over the mountains in March.

January delivery???

We plan to pick up our 21' Escape in the first two weeks of January...West coast via California to Oregon to Washington to Bellingham to Sumas to Chilliwack. Staying as close to the coast as we can. We are Texans and have no clue about how to use snow chains...what?

Maybe maybe a 2017 is in your future waiting for the display.
Sure sure a 2017 is yours when taking a leap of faith. .

Knowing the products ETI delivers, and having almost a year to complete the build sheet of your future 5.0TA, the future could become reality pretty soon by ordering before the display comes out, getting you your 2017 instead of a 2018..

All the choices we have to make in life..........

This is great news! I'm going to Chilliwack after the Quartzsite gathering.

I'll drive into California, store my Bigfoot in Ontario and fly to Portland.

After a visit with my sister, BIL, et al. I'll rent a car and drive to Chilliwack. I was sure they'd have a 2017 5.0 TA by then, but it's great to know for sure. Hopefully DW can fly in from Houston to join me.

Just in case, I'm trying to get a cousin to come along too. She and her DH got a new 17' Casita and found it was too small. Escapes are on their short list. The wonderful thing about fiberglass trailers is that they can sell their Casita with minimal loss.

I can't wait to see the 5.2 TA!

Rich
