New 5.0 TA

Well, DH and I put a deposit on a new 5.0 TA today...

Love our Escape 19’ but loved the layout of the TA even more.

Our completion date is Oct 25. We plan to list our 19’ for sale mid Sep (after some planned outings).

We have 2 weeks to complete our build sheet...

After selling and rebuying 4 times in the past 7 years, I was always glad to have sold mine first and forward payment to Escape during the build process. It eliminated worrying about having funds for 2 Escapes as well as exchange rate ups and downs and the fact Escape is a growing company and subject now to outside market changes and fluctuations. I have witnessed tariff changes, elimination and then reimplementation of the frameless windows and power awnings as well as new interior maple cabinets, new stoves and faucets. My point being, if Escape is offering something now that you like, you may want to jump on it and seal the deal before possible market changes can or will take place.

Congratulations! We followed the same path (19 to 5.0). We take delivery of our 5.0 on 7/31 and can’t wait. We also found the build sheet for the 5.0 was so much easier. Four years of experience with Escape and camping can do that. I hope you have a similar experience.

That is extraordinary Jim. There have been some lucky buyers who have gotten your trailers. How long do you keep your vehicles?

They are offering discount for fall completion. Might that work for your bug?

Nah, they offer me a discount anyway, normally a free front storage box. Plus their options have increased where the discount is offset. Has to be something new and different...
