Welcome Bill! We took a mid-life sabbatical for a few years almost 20 years ago and traveled extensively with a small fifth wheel and had a ball. When I went back to work we still used it for vacations for many more years, but like most stick and tin rigs it succumbed to repeated roof leaks. We looked in vain for a half-ton towable fifth wheel for a long time until we found Escape....our 5.0TA is being built right now. I highly recommend traveling in a small fifth wheel, and many many people highly recommend Escape!
