Price Reduced - Upgraded 2012 Escape 5.0 $27.5k

For Sale, 2012 Escape 5.0

Here's your chance to own one of the best fiberglass trailers made. With a dry weight of 2650 lbs., gross weight of 4400 lbs., pretty much any pickup truck can tow it with ease...even the higher-clearance off-road trucks! Since it's under 7 feet wide, it's about the same width as your truck, so you don't have to worry about fitting between those one-lane construction barriers or getting sucked in by a tractor trailer. At 20 feet long, you have a world of possibilities. City driving, narrow roads, parking lots, tight turnarounds, and of course those out-of-the-way camping spots...no problem!

Pictures not enough? Want to see it? Take a virtual tour with our video at Escape 5.0 Modifications and Walkthrough

How's the gas mileage you ask? If we're doing the speed limit, we only lose about 3 to 4 mpg. In fact, even at a pretty good clip, the worst we got was about 5 less than normal. Pretty great for a home on wheels!

Everything listed totaled over $37,000 (not including taxes or shipping) during the time when the US dollar was under valued to the Canadian dollar. We've kept excellent care of our memory-maker, and though we'll be very sad to see her go, life unfortunately changed, forcing our hand. Escape Industries is no longer making the single axle version, so you can't even get our model anymore, which means higher tolls for you on the road. There have been no pets, and no smoking in here. We're asking $27,500 for this majorly upgraded, vacation ready beauty. One thing is for sure, you're going to make friends on the road with this fifth-wheel. Everyone asks about it wherever we go. Just make sure that when they say, "It's so cute!" you respond with, "No, it's SPORTY!" I know you'll love it. We definitely do! I can be contacted through here, or via eml at my username at gmail.

btrippy, if you don't mind my asking, why are you selling it? I hope you don't intend to leave the Escape family! Besides, we need a few more owners here in San Antonio...

We really love our Escape and planned to be in it for a lot of years which is why we put so many improvements into it since we got it. Unfortunately our jobs and other stuff are keeping us from roaming the way we had hoped. Maybe in a few years we'll be ready to get another one!

Here's some more pictures.

Sad to see you selling your beautiful trailer. We enjoyed camping with you both in the hill country. Good luck ahead.

Glad to see that photo came out, as it seemed your lens was cracked! We had a great time talking with you, Sandy, and everyone else that came. Hope all is well in Texas!

The financing fell through on our last possible buyer, so we're back on the market. If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask.

Wanted to update everyone that our Escape has gone to a new home. While it's sad for us, I know they're super excited and will take great care of it! Thanks everyone, and I'm sure we won't be strangers!
