I see the photo showing the spare under the front; how much clearance is there from the spare rack to the ground?
The clearance is 9.25". We have never experienced a crunch on a curb or speed bump.

I saw your ad at 2012 Escape 5.0 Classic For Sale | near Auburn, WA | Fiberglass RV's For Sale and though having viewed your trailer pics and read the mods, I had not noticed all the details of Steve's fine craftsmanship and the conveniences he has added. I would love to see his ideas and workmanship when he gets his hands on the new 5.0 TA.

Thanks, JP. It will be a completely new adventure for him, I'm sure!

If I remember correctly, you are picking up your new 5.0TA this week. Maybe I can get Steve to show me some of his craftsmanship skills as he makes the mods to it. The interest in your 5.0 Classic should pop as the camping season is upon us...I'm sure you can't wait for the maiden voyage in the TA!

What is the Dry hitch weight for a 5.0 ? I can find it for a new 5.0 TA but not the older model.
I have a Tacoma and checking if it will tow your trailer.

Towing the 5.0 Classic with a Tundra shouldn't be a problem. That is one of the beauties of the Escape 5th wheel - it can be towed with smaller trucks. Dirk, if there are any other questions you have, just let me know.

And thanks, Donna, for posting the answer to Dirk's question.

Tundra? Dirk has a Tacoma. Both Toyotas - different sizes.
