Want to show wife 5.0TA - any in NE Ohio?

I really would like to show my wife a 5.0TA in person, but we live an hour south of Cleveland, Ohio and so visiting the factory isn't realistic for us at this point.

Does anyone own a 5.0TA in the Ohio area, that would be willing to let us take a look and ask all sorts of questions? Thanks!

Contact the factory. They have a list of owners willing to show their trailers and what model they have. That’s probably the best way to find the ones closest to you.

We live in Richmond, IN and have a 5.0TA. Would love to show it off!

Thank you. Looks like you may be the closest 5.0 to us; not sure how comprehensive the map is. According to the owners map there are only 7 or so Escapes in all of Ohio. Somewhat surprising.

Anyway, next time we are headed your direction, I may reach out. thank you.

We always stop at Richmond KOA on our trips as it allows us to make it home by the next afternoon. Nice place

I know I'm not being much of a help but Alf has a 5.0TA and he is closer than Richmond, at least as the crow flies. He's in St. Thomas ON. Too bad that Lake Erie is in the way

Anyway wish you luck on both seeing then perhaps buying an Escape.

We picked up our 5.0 in Canada three weeks ago, returned to California to register it, grabbed our 9 year old grandson, and headed east. We are currently in DC, and we will be traveling to NYC next week. We should be making our way past Cleveland in about three weeks. If you would like to meet us somewhere close to Interstate 90, we would love to show off our rig. Send me a pm if this works for you. We LOVE our trailer! Lynette

Yes it is. We've actually stayed there even though it is less than 5 miles from our house. Lol. Had a family event and everyone else was there so we joined in. Feel free to message us next time you are this way.

Thanks so much Ronn and Colleen! So nice to meet you both, and was great to tour the 5.0TA. Beautiful rig and learned so much about it and tips and tricks from you.

What a nice community... thanks again!

You are welcome, we enjoyed meeting you and showing you our "Sweet Suite". We had another couple from the West Branch campground visit our trailer as well.

From there we headed west to the Mississippi and traveled both Wisconsin and Iowa side of the river. We took in a high school class reunion in Waukon, Iowa and arrived home Sunday the 11th. That area of Northeast Iowa near and along the Mississippi is beautiful! If you think Iowa is boring you have probably never been to this part of the state. We had a great trip!

We are preparing to leave again this Thursday or Friday to attend the Inyan Rally in the Badlands and Black Hills of South Dakota. It seems only two weeks at home is hardly enough time to catch up with chores, family etc.

Then in September we will be off to the Mississippi Rally and to the Outerbanks. We sure are enjoying traveling with our 5.0

Hi Ronn,
We are pretty proud of the diverse areas in our little state. Anyone who wants reasonably priced camping , that on weekdays is very lightly used should check out our state parks, state forests, county park systems, and city owned camping areas. The Loess Hills in Western Iowa, some great Corps of Engineers Lakes, the Driftless area of NE Iowa and the length of our Eastern border and the Father of Waters, all have great attraction and good camping. Hey Governor Reynolds send me my $5 for promotional consideration.

We have a 19 and live between Cleveland and Akron if you want to see it for quality etc. even though you are looking for a 5.0.
