Hi: HokieEscape...Dan... If you wait long enough "everything that goes around comes around". You will get a chance to "reciprocate". Alf

Re: Escape 5.0 on order

Hi Dave - congrats on your placing of the 5.0 on order. We too, are going to tow with the 4.0L, 2wd, 2008 ford ranger. We also have found that there are many ideas on how you want your unit changed from stock. We added a lot of little extras, like more exterior lights, 12v outlets, parcel shelf 6" below the top of the wardrobe, TV swivel mount, microwave, elec/propance water heater, extra tv outlet, 6" mattress, exterior access door, taller backsplash, power wire to rear of trailer for mounting exterior HID back up flood light, bike rack, etc.
No doubt you will find more to change, also.

Good luck with your order, it will be well worth the wait, we have been very impressed with the few we have seen in person.

Ken, Diana and Katie.

Re: Escape 5.0 on order

heh Ken, one other thing I'd add from what you've listed (all great) is a couple more electrical outlets. Like at home, you never have too many : - ) Of course, if you only boondock, then you won't need them.

Re: Escape 5.0 on order

Hi Hokie - just thought of one more thing, having an exterior light installed very near to the outside shower. cant clean the doggy feet if you can't see what ur doin.

By the Way, your set up with the Frontier looks nice.

Ken, Diana and Katie

Katie has the doggy feet.

Re: Escape 5.0 on order

Hi: EGSKPN...Ken... We also have a porch light under the bed area behind the 5th. pin. It will light up at the touch of the switch for night hookup/unhooking. We also use it as an indirect light as it bathes the ground in front of the trailer. If we are out visiting and wish to light up the parking space in front of the trailer we will leave it on rather than the one at the door due to light attracting bugs. Alf

Re: Escape 5.0 on order

Question for you 5.0 owners. Where are the propane bottles?

Re: Escape 5.0 on order

Jim, they must be in the lower front behind an outside hatch. That is where they are at least in stickie-5th.

Great idea on the shower light!. Our three rascals (Nola, Kaya, and Pepper) tend to get into the mud at every opportunity.
