Trailer: 2015 5.0 TA named "At Last"

Not Quite Friday, but...

I just had to share. I received my new Escape TA 5.0 today in Sumas, WA, and drove all by myself to the Lyndon KOA in Lyndon, WA (short shakedown cruise). Then I built my bed (Froli modular sleep system, 4" latex mattress, wool topper). I'm wiped out, but happy. I practiced putting out my awning, and forgot how to reel it back in. Fearing it being stuck all night, I panic-called ETI, and Reece called me back just after I figured out what I did wrong (forgot to flip the top switch to Close). Talk about great customer service!!! It's Beer o'clock now.

And thanks for sharing. I think Reace must be on call 24/7 or something like that. Talk about customer service. Enjoy your new trailer. Loren

Well, when you stand inside the bed frame, you do get to see more of the length of the trailer. Usually the angle is taken from the other side of the trailer when the bed is made. Just imagine you're laying on the bed and that's your view!

There are no rubber plugs in the hub caps, so you have your standard (not E-Z Lube) axles.

Beats the heck out of a Greyhound though!

Donna, yours is so similar, a 21' with stairs and bigger bed! Yes, the walking space is nice and you can see it there.

CherryAmes, great going!! Write us if you need something.

Congrats Dian. Good to see someone pulling a 5.0 TA with the "right" truck.

Congratulations. Your experience with the awning brought a smile. I finally watched and re-watched the awning section of Tammy's video orientation, writing down all the steps, before I finally got it right. Happy times and safe travels.
