Escape 5.0 TA

I saw this model on the Escape build calendar. Any idea what the TA stands for?

When I posted the question I thought Donna would know. Thanks for the information. It appears only one has the designation, April 29 going to Anchorage. I thought they were scheduled for a June debutante, is this a prototype?

April 29 is the first TA off the line. All 5.0s after that are the new build. Reace said the single axle 5.0 mold is being retired when the production of the TA starts. So I'm guessing the April 25 build is the last of the single axle built 5ers.

You don't seem to show your face around here as much anymore. Must be too busy enjoying your trailer, eh?
