Sometimes I'm only in a location a few days, the next time may be 30 to 40 days. After having being in a 17', I knew that the Escape would be the camper that I would eventually end up with. But I just felt that I needed something a tad (that's Ky lingo) larger.
It was recommended to me by a friend that I consider the 5th wheel because of the ease of pulling. Fall might be a great time to order.
That's exactly what I did. Sold our car, flew to Seattle, bought the truck, drove to Chilliwack and picked up our 5.0. We had a 17' Casita (which we loved) before, and it feels like we have 2X the space now. The ceiling height is much greater which leads to a lot of that. KY lingo, is that Kentucky?? We are in Blacksburg, VA, southwestern VA, so it you'd like to take a nice drive down 64, then 77, come on down, we'd love to show you what a 5.0 looks like.

(March 26 and after). And, to be careful to stay on subject, you don't have to worry about tongue weight on the 5.0, but you do have to have a truck!
