Acquired a 5.0 TA

After much thought, conversation, planning & luck, Iím happy to say we purchased a 2014 Escape 5.0. TA. This beauty was bought in Nova Scotia from a wonderful couple, Rick & Patti , who went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Canít believe we were able to make it happen in this time of Covid. The trailer towed so well behind my Ecodiesel during heavy wind & rain on the return. Itís all tucked away now for a few months, then we are off into new adventures .

Hi: RichardD... Congraduation's... glad to hear it towed so well. The 5.0TA is well behaved in the Escape family. We can't wait to see your combo. BTW what kind of mileage did you get on the trip both down & back. Alf

Thx Alf; didn’t calculate actual numbers. Made it to RiviŤre de Loup on half a tank of deisel, that’s $50. On the way back, hauling the trailer plus into a strong headwind, fuel economy down. Very pleased with unit stability & maneuverability. It’s gonna be a long winter!

Hi: RichardD... I know it's gonna be a long, cold, lonely winter.
Now you're going to have to change your avatar info to reflect the trailer change. Alf

Hi Alf, I was just about to post the same thing...too much time on our hands I guess. At least I've still got a few trailer issues to finish, yesterday took maxxfan partly apart to check out the non operating lift motor. Just ordered a new one.

Hmmm, Brockville, not far from Niagara. Keep your eyes open, the Niagara Escape Rally is in September.

I wanted to publicly thank Richard and Marilyn for taking time form their busy (Cdn) Thanksgiving weekend to show us their trailer.

It was a very lucky coincidence that an Escape 5.0 arrived in such a timely fashion in our small city.

They were very nice and gave us a true sense of the trailer that we had not been able to determine fully from YouTube videos, spec sheets, and the many helpful forum/Facebook contributors.

Hi: camp4528... I'm surprised there's room in Brockville for 2/ 5.0TA's.
BTW...Happy Turkey Day!!! Alf

I must admit it's the same with me Alf! I haven't yet actually removed the motor and wiring so who knows what will happen when I do that after I receive the new motor. I did this fall successfully replace the propane detector though

A Happy Thanksgiving to you both.
