Thank you for your help...
Obviously, those responding are happy with their choices. My recommendation is that you spend as much time as you can in both models you are considering. Try to picture which suits you more and compare the differences. There is no perfect trailer; you just have to figure out which fits your needs better.

The 5.0TA and the 19ft are both great to tow. They are both great Escape trailers; aren't they all??

Offended? No way Carl. Was simply addressing the 'ease of towing'.

Hi: All... My guess is y'all know which side I'm on... After a 5.0 for 6 years, and now a 5.0TA for nearly 1 year it's all about the ease of hookup. My wife controls the landing gear buttons and I control the truck. When the hitch snaps shut I plug in for the light check... and we're towin'. The separate bed area is great... and ooh that headroom!!!

Alf,
Are there any noticeable differences between towing the single vs the dual axle Escape 5th wheel?

Hi: cpaharley2008... More stability for the 5.0TA... Not as much chucking up and down and the trailer seems to ride better looking at it thru the rear view mirror. I75 in N. Ohio and S. Mich. is a real test stripppp~~~~. Don't notice any other major difference. Reace told me during the design stage and our build sheet the 5.0TA is essentially a 21'er from the door back.
Still get as many "Double takes" on the road!!! Alf

Yeah, but we don't have the time, nor the clinical expertise, to discuss that here.
