Floating Cloud - the 5.0 I found is in VA. There are no secrets here, are there?

My 2014 5.0TA was $35k CDN, they've gone up since so figure $38k, without solar or heat pads but with pretty much everything else. Add another $3500 or so if you decide on delivery.

gbalo - I've been lurking for a while. Are you sure you want to rat out Donna? I'm a little scared of her.

Careful of Donna. She might demand you post pictures.

Richard, keep your sights on the 5.0 TA it's your retirement gift. Many times there are cancellations so there is a possibility you may get your trailer in 2016. I have a couple of years yet until I retire, trying to retire totally debt free. We got all of the options on our 5.0 TA except for the inverter and AC. Scott

There is often only one of a model up anywhere in North America at one time! At least for a little while.

Richard, have you ever owned a trailer (of any build)? Just curious. I think I could be happy with a Scamp 5er (side bath, modified), if I was thinking short-term, fair weather camping. It is a nice trailer with lots of happy owners.


There are two things that you'll need to be truly happy. A comfortable place to sleep and a comfortable place to sit inside (when the weather is bad). Everything else is gravy.

AK - I'm not fully retiring until 2018-ish I'm thinking about buying new once I calculate costs USD. At CND .75 to 1 USD the conversion is favorable.

Donna - you already sold me on the Escape. (and the Scamp's bed is too small) I've had 3 popups.

I'm now pondering the 19. I like to have the option of loaning it to my kids who have an suv
