After being in high tech too long, I'd look at 5.1 as the first revise of the 5 series, 5.0 being the original of the line, which it is. If you were to have both single and double axles at the same time you could add the TA or SA suffixes, as it stands that would not be necessary.

Of course you could call it a 5.1 Shangri-La, or 5.1 Ritz, so it'd sound sexy and you could charge more.

I like "Escape 5T".

I like two options.

5.1 - My favourite. As is is the first revision of the fifth wheel. Seems logical. Using 5.2 seems like you skipped a step (As Fran and Dave alluded to).

5.0 TA - Keeping calling it a 5.0 seems fairly natural, as that is what is already used. Adding the clarifier of TA would distinguish it from its predecessor.

5.1 seems the most logical. I too like the 'kiss' principle

5.1 gets my vote.

However, Escape21 5.0 or Escape 21/5 or Escape 21-5 or Escape 215.0 might be more descriptive.

This can quickly become more agonizing than finalizing a build sheet.

Technically speaking, the new fifth wheel falls between the 19 and 21. My 5.0 is 19' 6" and adding 8 to that makes it 20' 2". This being said, I like the 5 being representative of a fifth wheel, but the length makes it a 20. My vote is to christen her "The Escape 520". This will keep it in the development timeline as well since the 5th was born before the 21.
