We are just beginning to 'flirt' with the idea of selling our beloved 17' Casita and "move up" to a 5.0 single axle. We are aware that this configuration is no longer made by Escape, so we would be looking for a pre-loved unit (isn't everyone? )

We have not yet made a decision which is the reason we want to see one "in person." We love our little Casita and have done a LOT of work to make it one of the nicest Casitas around... well, we thing so! (a few photos here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/rfpd30...57626742329244 )

Today, we looked at a brand new 2015 tandem axle 5.0... it was absolutely spectacular and its new owner rightfully proud and enthusiastic... he was a very gracious host. Even so, we're still thinking the older, single axle might be best for us.

So, if anyone in the Fort Worth/Dallas has one and wouldn't mind giving a "tour" please let us know... we would be most grateful.

All the best!

Yeah, I'd say you've done a lot of work to your Casita! Stunning!

Thanks to all who responded to our post! Since our original post, we have seen a new tandem axle 5.0 (gorgeous!) and have learned quite a bit about the fine Escape line... 'pull behinds' and fifth wheels. Clearly, Escape builds a premium product and it's easy to understand the owners loyalty as well as their appreciation and enjoyment of their own Escapes. Lucky folks!

As for Linda and I, we have decided that our 'flirtation' with the notion of selling the Casita and buying an Escape [single axle] 5.0 is over. Try as we may, we find it just doesn't make sense right now. Despite our recent 'wandering eyes,' we do love our Casita and have enjoyed it so much, it's hard to think in terms of not having it (it is pretty nice). Further, we can hardly stand the very thought of giving up our member-of-the-family Toyota Land Cruiser.

So, that's it for us for now. I hope that we will be welcome to 'lurk' here on the Escape boards... who knows what tomorrow may bring?

Thanks for the friendly hospitality; our best to all!

Rob and Linda

We have followed your many years of beautiful mods on your Casita, and we can certainly understand your hesitancy of selling and switching. You would have a line of interested buyers backed up to Florida! Additionally, in all your mods, you have been so gracious to provide detailed information and pictures to members of the Casita forum, so as not to have to 'reinvent the wheel'. i.e., your 'easy to drop' dining table, your lovely custom wood door, etc., etc.. I could go on and on. We recently sold our Casita in two hours for full price, and now we anxiously await our Escape 21'. We, too, loved our Casita, but it is time for a little more room. (Two-foot-itis). Here's to many more years on the road!
