Yet Another Texas 5.0 TA, this one in Houston

Hi Y'all,

I just got permission from the boss to order a 5.0 TA. We'll take delivery on Sept 14, 2017. I'm thrilled to join all you Escape lovers. We currently have a 1987 Bigfoot 5er, which I dearly love, but I can't wait to move up to a modern trailer with all the bells and whistles!

Rich (& Ginny)
(aka Rich Ess on Fiberglass RV. Com)

Congratulations Rich & Ginny. We were looking for a Bigfoot trailer when we came across the Escapes and got one. We previously had a Nash and are much happier with the layout, size, weight and quality of our Escape. And that's setting aside the leaks that destroyed the Nash.

About your handle Reagent Grade, it's a term I am very familiar with. I'm guessing you work or worked with chemicals?

Thanks All for the warm welcome! Given my experience in FGRV and various fiberglass trailer rallies, I value this community.

Yes Bob & Jim, I was trained as a chemist, but never actually worked as one. Breaking Bad, yes; meth lab, no (I hate looking over my shoulder). I'm a retired IT geek. Having said that, I've used ReagentGrade for many years, first as my CB handle long ago in a place far away.

Having ordered my 5.0 TA Mark II, I now have many months to obsess about the build sheet. I love that I can "have it my way!" Or at least I can have it her way.

See, proof that with age comes wisdom.
