Re: The 5.0 has a new refrigerator.....

It seems like every RV refrigerator I've seen has removable front panels and different panels are for sale at the refer manufacturers site. It not, you could always make one yourself... everything from plastic to metal to colorful laminate. One of the neatest I've seen for a family is where the Dad made the panel into a chalk board for the kids... when they're stuck inside due to weather, etc. and like to doodle. Cheaper than paper, not as heavy and nothing to pack.

Re: The 5.0 has a new refrigerator.....

I don't have a problem with the way it's organized... as long as the subject line has value. It's when we go completely off topic that finding information is difficult. For instance, why would anyone post about an oven in a topic called "The 5.0 has a new refrigerator..... " wouldn't it have been better to start a NEW topic?

Thank you Donna, you made my point. There's probably a thread on here somewhere about the appliances, what's included, what's not....what's an option, what's not. I looked all over but couldn't find a thread like that. One thing's for certain, all the Escape trailers are not all the same or at least not listed the same.

As it is, I edited the title of this thread that I started so that the next person that comes along can find it using the search. Thank you Donna for pointing that out to me.

Re: The 5.0 appliances.....

You're giving us too much credit to sensibility Sure as shootin' if you post a new thread about Escape Stoves someone will post about liking to cook outside on a Coleman two burner or dutch oven... and then, there goes the topic and search capability The best you can do for yourself is read.. a lot and either bookmark the posts you want to remember, or open a spreadsheet and paste the URL into it. That's what I've done and my spreadsheet has over 400 records encompassing five molded trailer forums.

I don't think there's a perfect solution for everyone. It is, what it is...

I would expect to find that sort of information on the Escape Trailer site, not on this forum. The Escape Trailer company site lists the standard features and the options for each trailer they sell, and it is up to date. The link to them is at the top of the main page on this site.

While one might think it's up to date and current for all their models it's not. The features and options are changing continuously while the company web site changes at a much slower pace.

For example, even though the company web site reflects that the 5.0 5th wheel has a 5.0 cu.ft. refer it does not. While they were installing a smaller refer for awhile, they're now installing a much larger (6.7 cu.ft. I believe) unit however, their web site still reflects the 5.0.

Another example....even though their web site does reflect some options it's not all inclusive. The digital thermostat is an example. Not mentioned any where on their web site however, it is an option.

I've learned a lot from their web site and from Tammy and Reace directly. However, there's so much more that I've also learned from owners right here on this forum......a valued resource here!

Re: The 5.0 appliances.....

Because Escape hand builds each unit to customer's specifications, they need to have a list of standard options to allow one to choose. If the customer is aware of another choice and Escape is willing to install it, then so much better. I have seen Escape progress with LED's and other improvements on their own. But there will always be another "improvement" that maybe available. Just ask Escape. They are very flexible.

Come on now......you're one of the handful that I've learned a lot from by reading this forum. And, I want to thank you for that......you have no idea.

Those of us that are newbies to the Escape, fiberglass and the trailer world in general learn a lot from these owners forums. I learned so much more about my Harley Davidson from the CVO owners forum than the techs at the dealerships knew. The CVO is a high end limited edition and most techs think they're the same as the regular models but not so in many cases. Even with my boats (Sea Ray and Crownline).....learned so much more on the owners forums than the company web site. The same would apply with the Harley truck owners forum (NHTOC.com). To a lesser degree, even with Silverado owners forum and the Ford F-350 dually forum. Just a lot of first hand experience, modifications, change applications (like the refers in the Escape), etc. can be learned immediatly on the forums where a company web site may not be updated but once a model year.
