Escape 5.0 for sale

Is this still available? The first time it came up it was snatched up right away. If it is still available I'm interested.

Never mind. We want it but the more sensible half says we haven't got the money right now.

You should call ETI, Tammy and Reace don't monitor this forum all that often. BUT, I think the office is closed until Tuesday. Give it a try though, someone may be working!

You could always make an offer, and maybe get a loan from a credit union or rich family member

A loan isn't a problem. We could pay for it with a credit card. We have excellent credit because we don't use it. We don't want to go back into debt for something we can live without. Sometimes I need to be reminded of that and that's one of the reasons I keep my financial adviser close at hand.

On the other hand, she now has had time to mull it over and thinks she wants it. I guess it is my turn to be responsible. It's the pits to have to exercise self control. Abandon is a lot more fun.

If Escape is selling the trailer they may limit the amount on a credit card to $2500 due to fees involved, at least that is their policy when purchasing a new trailer. Thus you may need a loan or you borrow from your credit card company with one of those convenience checks, but they normally involve a 3% fee which is added to your finance charges and it gets expensive.

I didn't mean that I would use a card to buy a trailer. I just meant that I have that kind of credit that I wouldn't have any trouble getting a loan. I hate credit card companies. Why should it cost 3% for them to process your money. I could see .5% but I just don't see the value that would make 3% reasonable.

It has always been true that those who most need a loan can't get one but those who don't need/use/want credit can get a loan from anyone.

We used to have a Vanagon Westfalia and really liked it. We haven't done much camping in years but we have started taking more vacations lately. We have been renting condos and vacation homes but think a 5th wheel that was set up to our liking would be better.

Perhaps we need to buy something cheap just to be sure that this is what we want to do with our future. Then we could step up to an Escape if it all works out.

The thing is, this is a particularly nice option and with the lower price and the favorable exchange rate it seems like a golden opportunity. All that glitters......

You are so close to the factory, you really should go and look at this and other models. A lot of Escape owners have purchased their unit sight unseen due to their location being too far away.

Close to the factory? Well, I guess on a globe we are practically touching. On a North America map it still looks close but it's 1200 miles round trip by my butt-o-meter so it doesn't seem that close to me. When we go to the coast we stop off half way to break things up and that's only 450 miles each way.

I guess I'm a wimp. Our idea of travel is to take short legs and enjoy the passage. That is part of why we find the Escape appealing. We figure we could just go until we wanted to stop and then find a spot to put up for the night without having to worry that the motel will overcharge us for just dropping in.

However, there is a trailer only an hour and a half away that we could look at. We haven't done so yet but perhaps it's time.
