Escape 5.0 TA

We've been dreaming of a bigger camper for quite a while and are leaning towards the fifth wheel Escape for reasons I don't need to explain to anyone here...just really salivating at the picture on the ETI web site and dreaming of having more space in a camper that tows sooo much better.

We've pulled a gooseneck horse trailer for years and know what a major difference there is between a bumper hitch tow behind and a fifth wheel/gooseneck.

Checked the lists, the 21 is already into December production slots with the others right behind that.

And here I thought Jim that you did mods on Eacapes for a living

We made it to beautiful Chilliwack hanging out at Cottonwood Meadows park with a stream behind our site, feels like summer here

That's the advice you gave me regarding my F150.

Jim did a fantastic job helping me divest my portfolio outfitting my new truck! What really made all the aftermarket add-on's tolerable is that my wife endorsed them!

Hi, and welcome!
Read some of the comments made already, and while some of them are goofballs, they are right! Since there are only a few slots open still for this years production, you might want to "shoot the gun" and order one. Who knows their might be price changes for the next year production...., Plus the low dollar..... You might save yourselves some dollars ...
Good luck with your decision making!!!

Can't think of a better time to order if you're a US buyer. To my mind the exchange rate right now makes an Escape the best bargain in the RV industry hands down. There's no need to settle for a lesser brand.

Just don't spend it until you get up here, then it is still worth $200.

That's $144 you wouldn't have otherwise. I never know when I'll receive a referall check, and when I do, they are just a nice surprise.

Hello and welcome. We're in Richmond, IN if you'd like to make a road trip and see a 5.0ta in person. But, like the others have said, you won't regret ordering. We ordered without seeing one first and do not regret it for a minute. Love our trailer!

We've only had it 48 hours so no offers yet.
The truck driver said he could have sold it a half dozen times getting it here...

GB:

We may well take you up on your offer. The desire is there and we just have to figure out how to make things happen. Laura and I may decide to contact you out of the blue for a road trip. Thanx. Bill & Laura

We ooh'd and aah'd over the four Escapes sitting in the showroom this morning, especially that 5.0 TA. Tammy said we could likely get what we paid for ours three years ago. She even recognized it from ten years ago when it was last at Escape.
