Hi: wardb1... We're on our second Escape 5th wheel. We had the first 5.0 east of the Rockies and enjoyed it for 6 years. We're now beginning our 3rd. season camping in our new 5.0TA so ask away!!! Alf

Thank you all very much. I just purchased a 2015 GMC Sierra 4X4 Short bed crew cab. Maximum towing is 9200 fully loaded. I've been looking for something lighter and well built. Everything in the US thats well built is to heavy,
How much does the 21 foot fifth wheel way? I live in Astoria Oregon not to far from BC. Canada. Where is the manufacture located, and can I just drive in and pick it up or are there going to be duty taxes?

Hey Bill ... welcome!

Escape Trailer Industries – Chilliwack, British Columbia is located in Chilliwack, BC. About 6 hours north and slightly east of I-5 (Sumas border crossing). ETI saves US buyers a bunch of stress by importing the trailer into the US. You would pick it up in Sumas (about 30 minutes from the factory) and you would pay no duty taxes either. SWEET!

If you're interested in looking at a 5.0TA classic, I'm in Portland and would welcome your visit. Just let me know by PM.

Best of luck in your hunt!
