Hello from Utah

We live in southern Utah near Zion National Park, and are about to pull the trigger on a new Escape. Come visit us and we'll show you all of the locals secret places. Still debating between the 19 and 5.0, but we are very excited and looking forward to advice from all of you seasoned Escape-ers.

Welcome Kevin, big difference between a 19 and a 5.0, have you seen them?

Thanks Bob,

I have not seen them. Hoping to visit a few in Salt Lake next week. Like most Escape owners I want to get the smallest one that will work for us. I think the 19 will work based on looking at other brands that size, but I am intrigued by the ease of towing a small 5th wheel. Although it is 1,000 pounds heavier. Your thoughts?

Kenvinc:

This may not help you much, but we have a 17B. If you'd like to see an Escape, we're in Sandy--We'll be in town until the the 16th--we're leaving on a trip to WY to see the Eclipse on the 17th. Send me a PM if you'd like to arrange a meeting before then. Good luck with you decision making--Escape design and quality is great!

Dave

I'd get the one your spouse thinks works best.

I wanted a queen size bed and a bathroom, my wife didn't care for the aisle width of the 19 we looked at. The 5.0 is wider and has a bigger kitchen area so she's happy, has the full queen bed for me so we were both happy, at the cost of a full size truck.

I would have been happy with a 19 and had looked at one, Deb not so much. Although the extra space of the 5.0 sure is nice when you travel in it for 3 months.

Kevin,
You do not mention your tow vehicle, that may come into the decision making.

Wow thanks Dave. We are going to Wyoming to see the eclipse as well. They are expecting 500,000 people. Do you have a place to camp?

Thanks Bob. I've got a Tacoma and they tell me it will work, but I'll lose the truck bed space. Tough decision.

Jim,

I have a Tacoma. They tell me it will work, but that's probably pushing it.

I am in Salt Lake but I don't get my 19 until November. I am planning to tow with my 2016 Tacoma but again no experience yet. I am afraid it will be the crush of people in Jackson WY that will be blocking the sun. I'm going anyway.
