Congrats on Trailer Life Spread

Just wanted to say congratulations to Reace and Tammy on the article in Trailer Life mag. this month. It was a great article with really no complaints about the design or layout of the 5.0TA. They gave some real compliments on the quality of the workmanship and amount of storage in such a small trailer. I really enjoy the mag. and they always have something negative to say on their trailer reviews. The only other trailer I've ever seen with no complaints was a very high end giant fifth wheel.
Again Congratulations

Just a suggestion, but it's probably not best to provide a link to a warez site for downloading a pdf of the issue. Trailer Life doesn't provide a free copy of the current issue. Also, those type of sites can easily introduce security vulnerabilities into your computer, such as malware, spyware, trojans, etc.

If a magazine can review a product and not publish anything negative about it then it must be one heck of a good product. I like and read Consumer Reports but they are so critical on vehicles. I mean nobody goes unscathed. Like a truck rides bumpy. Well, it is a truck. Anyway, congratulations most certainly are in order for Reace, Tammy , and their whole crew for a job well done. Now watch the production lag grow. Loren

Don't know if I've ever seen an article in TL that had negatives, not that I've read many.

It must be the August issue. I went to a Camping World which had a stack of the July issue. No cover shot nor article on Escape. I'm looking forward to reading it, but not interested in a subscription.

Thought his was red. Although I do recall someone mentioning he'd like to try out the smaller Ecoboost engine.

I popped into Escape on the way home from work last week and there was a white F-150 parked up the side where the staff park so I assumed it was Reace's as he mentioned that he was going to get a new truck cus it would be lighter with the aluminum body.

Reace had a new white four-door Ford F-150 at the rally. There was a medalion on the tail gate that said "Texas Edition." True Story!

Trailer Life actually had one criticism. They thought the bathroom shower hose was too stiff!

I was laughing at that comment this past weekend when I hung a wash cloth on the hose so it could drip into the sink. A softer hose probably wouldn't be dual purpose.

Maybe I'm missing something, but all I find is the Little Big Trailer section of the mag. (The MSRP is $21,905 U.S. dollar?). Can someone help me navigate to the article?

Thanks!

Usually damning with faint praise is as negative as they get. Not surprising, since it appears that every trailer reviewed is advertised in the magazine. I don't know if the manufacturer explicitly purchases a particular level of coverage in articles, but there is certainly at least an implicit understanding.

I spent many of my last days in "journalism" taking photos for the New Homes section of the Vancouver Sun.
Basically, I photographed display suites full of under-sized furniture ( to make them look spacious ). If you took away the furniture and flowers, you were left with four beige walls.
Over time, there seemed to be more of a correlation between the ads and the articles.
One time I arrived a half hour early, got access to the suite, photographed it and left before my contact arrived. Got a call from him on my way home. He wanted me to come back so he could tell me what to photograph. Told him no, not coming back. Buy an ad if you want to choose the angles. Not sure I would get away with that now.
