Escape 5.0 TA wannabe!

We cover our Escape 21 because unlike our stick built trailer, you can't walk on the roof of it to clean all the green growth we have on the north side of our house where we store it. Even applying wax to the roof requires extensions for me as I stretch to reach the middle areas. If we had an Escape 17 it would be easier. We don't have much wind to deal with, especially on our sheltered north side. There are dozens of trailers within a mile of our home (including 2 other Escapes) and all but a few are covered over the winter. We got out cover for just over $200 and if it lasts the length of its warranty it will have been worth it. Oh, and our cover drapes over the tires, protecting them from UV damage. We live in Surrey, with all the typical wet PNW weather.

Thanks for the encouragement! The Leesurelite was towable with my little car....which I traded in for a large truck...and now a larger camping unit!

This wll be a big step up for us and we have hesitated buying a new camping unit due to the lack of quality...everyone out here on the rainy west coast we know seems to have huge water leak issues. The Escape quality impressed us!
This one is still at the factory, and for sale:
