Really liked the 5.0TA!

Howdy, my name is Bob and my wife is Julie. Been a member here for a while, just been laying low and researching the 5.0TA. We are Casita owners and looking for more space. We sent Donna a PM yesterday asking if she would be available to show her 5.0TA. She was, so we drove down from Tacoma to have a look at her 5.0TA. We really liked it, what an amazing fiver! The drive back to home was spent talking about how we can make this happen. Hopefully by the end of next week, we will be able make a deposit and secure a spot in line. Thank you Donna for taking time on such a beautiful fall day to give us a tour, it was very much appreciated! So, anyone have a friend looking for a very well loved, late model Casita? I know of one that may be looking for a good home in the spring! Bob

Yo BOB!

Great meeting you and Julie. Isn't an ETI 5.0TA build stellar?

Everything I had ever hoped for in an all molded towable.

Best of luck in your decison!

So Donna, you saying you do like your 5.0TA, I wasn't really sure.

Welcome Bob, that certainly is a dandy trailer,eh?

A picture is worth a thousand words but seeing one in person is worth a $500.00 deposit. lol
This past Friday I had the opportunity to meet Don and Cheryl Meints (super nice people) at Lake Seminole SP in Georgia and toured their 19ft Escape and I just fell in love with it so it looks like this is the route I'm going to go.

We had a 17B and loved it, and really hated to give it up; but we have no regrets we absolutely love our 5TA as well.....it feels huge - even without pullouts and recliners....love the separate bed area.....I'm sure you will be pleased, plus it tows pretty much the same as our 17 & overall it's a foot shorter when hooked up. We also gained an extra 6' +/- of livable space.

You will have NO problem selling a Casita - most seem to sell in under a week. It took me over a year to find my 2006 17LD used 1200 miles away, and 3 days to sell it to the first buyer at full firm price.

Yeah, that's the great thing about molded fiberglass trailers. They sell almost as soon as you place an ad.

Resale value is great for fg eggs.

Of course, pricing it appropriately is also important. You see the odd egg for sale for extended periods when they are over priced and the owners fail to recognize that.

Welcome Bob, We also went from a 17' Casita to an Escape, 21 in our case. It'll be nice having another Escapee in Washington. AND as posted, you'll have no trouble selling your Casita. The hard part will be waiting for your Escape.
Tom
