This is great. Many Questions I had have just been answered.
I don't plan on camping in the dead winter, but I may get caught in it some day. Nice to know.
I'm looking for a 5th wheel, because I need something light.

Ward,
Escapes 5th wheel is not the lightest Escape, it may be relative to other brands but it is the heaviest Escape made.

Hi: wardb1... cpaharley2008 is right. As Escapes go the 5.0TA is their heaviest trailer... but as 5th wheel trailers go it is a light weight!!! It is very towable by 1/2 ton pickups, contrary to some opinions, and we tow with one of the lightest 1/2's on the market. Both 5.0's we've owned were designed for the mid size truck market and are easily towed in all situations. Alf

This was 30 miles of totally barren road over dirt and dips in Utah I wish I didn't take, a few months ago. But, my 19 took it very well. Only had to turn on the 4WD a couple times. I always secure the doors, nothing inside went flying.

To be fair, the realtor did say there was some beach erosion.

Myron,
Is that last picture in Utah or is it the Grand Canyon?
