Hello from Southern California

Hello From California

Ross and Maureen saying hello and thanks. This site has been a great help. We have been camping for 50 + years, started out in tents and backpacking. Ten years ago we upgraded to a used small Starcraft pop up tent trailer. We both recently retired and are ready to upgrade for our future travels. I did lots of research and settled on a 5.0 TA. We put our deposit down Dec. 29 and have a build date of May 3. I am in the process of finalizing my build sheet and the info on the site has been amazingly helpful. Thanks again and I am sure we will have many more questions.

Welcome Ross and Maureen,
Not sure that date of 12/29 is correct as Escape is closed until next week. But either way, welcome to our little world.

Welcome. We also went from a Starcraft to 5.0TA. Took a bit to get used to the closed in feeling as compared to all the screening but the 5.0 has proven to be great from traveling.

Is your unit to be completed or start on 5/3/2019, if possible there is a yearly Escape Rally held in Osoyoos, BC, about 3 hours east of Chilliwack, there will be probably more than 150 Escapes there with their owners, it is a great opportunity. See here 2019 Escape Trailer Rally

Well hello neighbors!!! We live in nearby La Verne!!! We are celebrating 1year with our 5.0 TA this January. We love ours and have had it out on the shake down trip 3 weeks, followed by a 99 day trip early June to mid September to Alaska, British Columbia, Yukon, and NWT to the Arctic Ocean, along with Wa, Ore, and Ca. You will love the adventures ahead of you. Congrats Ross and Maureen!! Suzy and Frank.
