Lots of trailers in WA and OR if you want to view any. Rally in Bandon next July if you want to view lots of trailers in one place (and more than just Escape brand).

And many probably come through the area on trips (mine knows the way to Coos Bay already).

Hi Fred,

I really like the Escape 19 floor plan. And the size is s just perfect for me.

NW Cat Owner:

Thanks for the heads up, I’ll be trying to see an Escape in those areas.

( Oooops, I meant to type FG Travel Trailer in my first post above ).

Charley

Welcome Charley! I like your signature: "Don't Fence Me In".
About the 19: it simply is the best floor plan! The options you can choose according to your camping style. You are going to end up with a trailer to YOUR liking.
Best wishes with the decision making!

HA! The 5.0TA has the best floor plan, because we get it ALL and we're a smaller footprint lengthwise (tug and tow) than the 19'. Let the fun begin!

Charley, if you don't want to wait for the Oregon Gathering at Bandon in July, you're invited to join in the fun at the Spring NOG in April. Maybe worth the trip north earlier rather than later. Good luck on your egg hunt!

Donna, do you happen to know the combined length of your tow and trailer? I've been curious about this. The combined length of my Escape 21 and Tacoma is 39 feet, one inch, according to Washington State Ferries.

I had it written down one time... wonder what I did with that? I'm going over to Ten Forward today to winterize. I'll write it down, so I can remember to measure. BUT, I do remember it was just a few inches longer than towing my 16' Scamp towing with the same truck.

Yup, Donna is totally correct - the 5.0 TA is the best floor plan, AND you don't even have to bend over to hitch it up.
I'm happy with my 5.0 TA, so happy!
