Hi: jackiebrad2... Escape 5.0TA's are rare on the used market. They only started production of them in 2014. Alf

You might want to check this out. It is one of the last single axle Escape 5.0's made before ETI came out with the dual axle 5.0 TA. And, it's only 840 miles due east of you, on one of the most beautiful routes in the country.

Edit: removed reference to 21 ft.; the 5.0 single axle is 19'-6" overall length.

Just a heads up: there's no such thing as an "Escape 21 5.0". In 5th wheels there's the 5.0 which was a single axle, and now the 5.0 TA or Tandem Axle. The 21 is a conventional bumper pull trailer.

Robert makes a good point. I went back and looked at the 5.0 brochure: the single axle (SA) 5.0 is 19'-6" in overall length.
The 5.0 TA (tandem axle) is 21 ft.

True, but I'm sure that the desire is to purchase a twenty-one foot long fifth-wheel Escape, rather than to suggest any connection to the model which is usually called the 21'. It's just a coincidence that the overall length of a 5.0TA is about 21 feet, and it's unfortunate that the 5.0TA (and its predecessor, the 5.0) is the only Escape model which actually has a name.

That is what I was thinking that he meant too.

The all do have names, 17, 19, 21, and 5.0TA. Personally, I like these accurate descriptors better than some of the names used out there for various models. Not huge on the TA descriptor, but it does serve a purpose to distinguish between it and the predecessor, but only to those in the know.
