Smile Hello! - I'm a Newbie!

I'm new to the Escape forum- I have been interested in the Escape for a long time, & particularly would love the Escape 5th wheel. I am thrilled there a slightly larger 5th wheel coming available! I don't own an RV now, but used to pull a 25' trailer and then went to a 26' 5th wheel ( and I strongly prefer pulling a 5th wheel over pulling a trailer). Does anyone know if the interior ceiling height for the new Escape 5th wheel will remain at 6'2"? What are the interior heights of the Escape trailers? I ask this as my son who loves coming along and RVing with me is 6' 1-1/2" tall- and I need someone experienced with 'tall' folks RVing in an Escape! I would so LOVE to be an Escape owner!

Interesting question, one we will need Reace to give a definitive answer to. We know Escape is blending the 21' build to the current 5.0 build and adding 5" to the loft. The current 5.0 is 6'4" - 7", the 21' is 6'5", so I'm thinking the new 5.0 will be 6'5" - 7'5"


BTW: Welcome to the Escape Forum, if you're interested in one of the new 5ers... better get on the list...

You must be so excited about getting a new Escape that you can't sleep.

I was excited to see five Escapes (17b, 2x19, 15a, and 5.0) yesterday at the Niagara Wine Escape and I can't sleep either, just dreamin' Escape!

Welcome to the forum.

Hi Lee, welcome aboard.

Your son will have no problems in the 5.0. Hopefully it will be in the cards for you.

Lee - careful! It's a bit like joining a cult! Gradually all your thoughts are taken over by plans to become an owner.

I've heard about people being addicted to facebook or texting. But, whenever you go on this forum, look at who else is on. You can see which of us is always on! Yes, I am addicted to this site. I just wonder if I can reduce my visits once I take delivery of my 19'.

Lee, I'm still a lurker too. I have a couple years until finances will allow me to buy new, which is my goal. I'm in Texas and have looked at many Casitas since they are made here but as a 6" woman they are just too short. I've decided on Escapes first of all for the height, second the quality. My husband doesn't want to get a bigger tow vehicle than what we have since its his regular vehicle so that's what started me looking at fiberglass trailers. I'm learning all I can from all these wonderful people. I would love a 21,s bigger kitchen but hubby is spoiles with a king bed at home and just says that bed is too small, so a 19 it is. I cook outside most the time anyway. Who knows what they may come up with next as long as an Xterra can pull it. Thank you guys for all the great information.
