Escape 5.0 in Florida?

Hello,

I'm living in central Florida and am interested in the Escape 5.0. Unfortunately, as per Hayley at Escape, the closest unit in the customer referral list is in Greensboro, North Carolina. Does anyone know of a closer unit that I may be able to look at? Or is there going to be a Fiberglass Rally in Florida anytime soon? Thanks.

Hi: yogiyoda... Depending on where on earth you are in Florida there's one 5.0TA on its way to central Florida soon. I believe there's one 5.0TA on the east coast near Hobe Sound. Not all owners want to share their locale or are on the forum. We spent the winter touring some of Florida's State Parks.
The only fiberglass rally in Florida that I know is the Scamp Camp in Highlands Hammock St. Pk. at Sebring every Feb. Alf

If its a TA you're interested in, the 21 is just about the same from the door to the back.

Thanks for the reply! I'm in Orlando, FL. Would be interested in more details about the 5.0TA heading to the area, and would also be willing to drive to Hobe Sound if the owner wouldn't mind showing the unit. Please feel free to PM me with details. Thanks again!

Thanks Ray. If it's not possible to see a 5.0TA, then the 21 foot sounds like a decent consolation prize. One of the things I'm interested in though is head room. I believe that is different between the two units. I'm 6'3" (without shoes) so interior height is a key factor for me.

Hi: yogiyoda... The folks heading for Dade Co. are at the rally in Osoyoos BC. They will be taking their sweet time heading home I'm sure. I know they might be incommunicado for a while due to poor wifi. Alf

Hi: yogiyoda... "Weldingmedic" is the member you're looking for.

Yeah, I understand. Escape advertises 6' 5" in the 19' and 21', but I'm just a bit over 6' 4" and can't stand straight up anywhere inside. I think it's really just a little under 6' 4" inside, so you should be pretty good, except for under the AC which hangs down a couple of more inches. We used to have an EggCamper, which was 6' 7" inside, and I do miss the extra headroom; however, I am a bit surprised at how well I've adapted to having to duck down in our 21' - I guess a lifetime of having to watch out for bumping my head prepared me.
