OK, my suggestions. I am sure Reace and Tammy are looking for something marketable which fits into their existing naming structure. And they will also want to market to customers who are not necessarily members of this forum. Looking at the Products dropdown on their site, the names are simple yet descriptive. So, a couple of ideas:

Escape 5.0 II (which matches the twin axles)

Escape 5.0 2G (second generation)

Escape Fiver (which is an often used short name for a fifth wheel type of trailer)

All of those names will fit the dropdown.

Then again, keeping with the fun here, maybe 5.0 XP. 5.0 Vista, 5.0 NEXT, you get the picture...

A systematic approach would be nice so the model numbers would convey consistent information and could be used uniformly going forward:

Length-Identifier Version
Escape 17-TSA
Escape 19-TTA
Escape 20-5TA

T=Trailer
5= Fifth wheel
SA=Single Axle
TA=Tandem Axle

ETC= et cetera (LOL)

I didnt read the entire thread so if this was already suggested, great minds think alike. LOL.

I don't think so - they have model series names, then typically distinguish between individual models with a combination of size and floorplan.

For instance, my stickie 5th wheel is a General Coach Corsair 34RLTS:
General Coach - manufacturer
Corsair - model line (the other one was "Citation")
34 - length in feet
RL - rear livingroom
TS - triple slideouts
This is typical of conventional trailer manufacturers. It doesn't even indicate that the trailer is a fifth-wheel.

Since Escape Trailer Industries has a single (but extensive for its niche) model line - all of the same construction and features - there is no need for a model line name, but if there were one it would apply to every other Escape as well.

Casita uses names for the floorplans, rather than model lines.

I've never seen a indication of tandem axles in another brands naming (although there's nothing wrong with breaking new ground).

Good point.

The underscore exists to indicate a space between letters, without actually having a space and breaking up the string of characters. It is useful in computing, and I agree that it seems unsuitable in a name.

All of mine, for instance, but that's okay - no one else has commented on them in 58 subsequent posts so they must not be of interest anyway. Marketing is not my thing!

I guess I'm just the most familiar with Scamp's website and Airstream.... For instance, the only difference in a 16' Scamp on their website is whether or not it has a wood interior: Showroom - Scamp Trailers and Airstream which only talk about models rather than size: Airstream, Inc :: Travel Trailers Anyone for a Land Yacht?

That makes a lot of sense. I note that Bigfoot model designations (including for the their truck campers and - when they made them - motorhomes) follow a systematic method, but most people in the FiberglassRV forum seem to misinterpret them or are not aware of them... even Bigfoot owners!
