I assume Doug meant a motorhome as a new model of Escape. I'm pretty sure Reace and Tammy are too smart to get into that business.

Hmmm... if the version numbering approach were taken, the current "5.0TA" would have logically been the "5.1" instead (but those of us who suggested that lost), and the 2017 version would be the "5.2".

lol .... not sure " poor folks " are buying Escapes . We love, love , love our 15 and have no inclination whatsoever to upsize . But we sure do appreciate the larger models and love to see them . They are all beautiful , and the personalizations are just nice .

Well, we're not exactly rich and will be even less so once the trailer and the truck are purchased. I'm selling an animal figurine collection that I've taken years to acquire to help finance this. I decided some time ago that I'd much rather have the trailer and start some traveling instead of staring at figurines that I'm about the only one in the house to appreciate. Of course the market is way down on them, but every bit helps.

I might be using less toilet paper in the near future!

Fortunately I don't have an expensive coffee/latte addiction!

Thanks Reace! Now I know I need to save more as I know I will like the 21v2.0 model.

I posted this before but I think it got swept into Donna's retirement thread when it was split off.

New molds is too exciting! Can hardly wait to see them. Hope I don't like them!

I can completely understand the "love the one your with" mentality for those of you who already own a previous year trailer. It's yours, you've used it, decorated it etc. However, at least for me, who's build sheet is not even due yet, but will probably miss out on the new version, the emotions are a wee bit more conflicting...especially because I have none of Chris R or Jim Bennett's redesign/modification abilities.

Does this mean that I should drop my spot and wait for until 2017 to get the new design? Are you crazy? What if the changes are nothing I am pining for? What if to me they don't warrant the cost? What if it will be hard to wrap my head around why they did what they did? What if one of the new options is a porta potty tent because they did away with the bathroom inside?....

"Thanks for the couch and for listening doc, I guess I'll love the one I'm with"....

P.S. "If it is everything I was hoping for, can I have more couch time doc?"

Nathan, if the new model is available when yours is ready to go into production, which it most likely will be, all the details will be known by then, and you will have the opportunity to pay the difference to get the newer model, or just stick with "the one you're with".

Remember, the current model is a fantastic trailer.

Jim,

Guess you'll probably have just enough time to think about that on yours too. Aren't you due out in May or June?
