Future 5.0 TA owner from Eastern Ontario

Hello,

My wife and I can't wait to hit the road in 2017. Our 5.0 TA will be ready the first week of January 2017. Thanks to dbailey for showing us his 19 on very short notice. I have enjoyed reading all the posts over the last year and have learned a lot from the Escape community.

Cheers,

Warren & Marlene

You are quite welcome, and congratulations. Let me know when the trailer arrives -- I'd like to take a look...

Welcome, Warren and Marlene.
You don't actually have that long to wait but maybe you
will be delaying pick-up? Sounds as if you want to get going in the snow! Maybe Ottawa doesn't have that much.

There are lots of us who want to see the new model so you may get a few requests.

Ottawa definitely gets snow, although it's just getting going at the beginning of January.

I'm curious, too... why January? It seems like the worst possible time to drive across the country; is it being delivered?

What do you plan to use for your towing vehicle?

I plan to pick it up mid March and head towards Arizona and work my way back to Ottawa. I still have not decided on whether to ship my truck out by train or drive across Canada. Since they ship the truck through the U.S. I have been told you are not allowed to put any items in your truck. I have to see how much it costs to ship my camping gear before I make the final decision.

For sure I will be delay pick-up until at least mid-March. Ottawa has it share of snow. I have made an annual two week trailer trip during March break to Florida for over ten years without to much problem...just watch the weather forecast and adjust my departure.

I look forward to showing the trailer after I pick it up. I myself have not seen the 5.0 TA. I will get my chance in another month as I registered for the Niagara rally in Ontario.
