Newbie from West Texas

I'm a long time lurker of this forum that started when I ordered a 5.0TA last year. I will be picking my new Escape on thursday next week.
My name is Phil and my wife's name is Patty. We live in Odessa/Midland here in west Texas. I retired last May and bought a used Casita and this got me on the slippery slope. When I posted my Casita on Craigslist Saturday night, the first person that called on Sunday morning bought it on Tuesday morning because he drove from Austin to pick it up.
I upgraded my TV to Ram ecodiesel from a 2009 Silverado because the best mpg I was getting on the chevy is 11 towing the Casita. The Ram was getting 17/18 with the same Casita.
Like most Escape newbies, this forum has been a very big help for me in so many ways. THANK YOU ALL!

Hi Phil and Patty and welcome to the forum. I like your taste in trailers.
Please post pics once you pick up for those of us who are still waiting for our 5.0TA trailers.

Cheers
Doug

Hey Phil! I'm a bit partial to the 5.0TA ETI build myself. Can't help it, love the one you're with! Since you're a former Casita owner, are you going to Bluebonnet the end of the month? That rally is on my bucket list.

Safe travels, always.

Hi Donna,
I wanted to go soon as I saw the post but I'll be out of the country by that time for 50 years High School reunion. I'll be without my 5.0TA for a month - bummer :-)

Did you graduate from Lakenheath High School by any chance? We are having a reunion in England in that time frame I think��

Aloha Phil & Patty,
Lucky you. Welcome aboard! We also have the ecodiesel and will be picking up our 5.0 TA the end of June. Curious what route you are taking to Chilliwack?
