Hello,

Escape Artist posted a photo of his Frontier & Escape 5.0 on a Frontier forum. Not very familiar with Escape campers yet, but plan to more learn about them.

We currently camp with a 2010 LivinLite CampLite 11RD 1500lb TT. It's a basic camper and about 98% aluminum. Will eventually move up to a larger TT or 5th wheel. Tow with a 2013 Frontier crew cab with 261HP V6/AT.

We camp mostly in NC & SC, but plan to camp out west next year and possibly BC, too.

Hi: exploring/carolina... Hi; Bill. Welcome to the Escape Forum!!! Well you've come to the right place to learn all about Escape Trailers. 99.9% of owners love them so not to many negative comments here. We've had "Our Escape Hatch" through one set of tires with a min. of trouble. Our 5.0 has been from Alaska to Virginia and Indiana to Maine plus several places in Ontario. You will find several Fronty owners here too!!! The best trip to B.C. will be to pick up a new Escape. Alf

Alf,

After seeing your Fronty/5.0 rig, got me interested in Escape & 5th wheels. Very interested in the redesign being performed on the 5.0. Guessing the "Escape Hatch" is a camper that allows Escape into the "better" world of camping. "Escape" is a great name for a camper!

Thanks,

Edit:

Took this "Escape" shot while camping @ Hunting Island SC about a week ago:

Alf, Nice Shots!!!!

In contact with Lisa @ Escape today. She is mailing out an info package. Also asked for info on the 5th wheel redesign.

Took these shots while camping in North & South Carolina. Guess I take too many photos.
