We read the forums every day and are getting ideas for our trailer. We have a 6 yr old golden and we live in the blue ridge mountains of N Georgia. We love nature and are in to photography.
We look forward to Escaping SOON!

Hi and welcome, nice choice in trucks by the way.
We have a Tacoma and will soon have the 19' Escape
If you go this route be sure to get the high lift axle
as the height will be perfect for the truck.

Hi: Pioneer...And welcome. We are enjoying our 2nd. season with "Our Escape Hatch"... 5.0. The biggest deciding factor was the permenent fore/aft queen size bed in the loft. The big fridge helps too. As my wife said when she saw it..."Its got a real fridge"!!! If you would like some pic's send me a personal message thru the Forum with your email addy and I would be glad to send some.

Re: Another Newbie Here

We had a Casita '05, and just loved it!!! But, our Escape 5.0 is soooo much better built, so many nice extras not found on Casita, and the extra space is GREAT! If you have a Tacoma, there should be no question. If you didn't have a truck, the 19' is beautiful, that's what we'd get. As Escape Artist said, the front to back Queen is great, you don't have to crawl out over your spouse (although, I never found that to be ALL bad!).
