Hello from Nashville

Hi, my name is Bill, my wife is Sherry, and we are checking out the Escape 5.0 TA. We have had the opportunity to examine one in person and are most impressed. We are still a year from retirement but actively looking for something to do! After working for so long we have to find something, and traveling the country in a RV is looking pretty good right now. The Escape fiver is the most usable floor plan in a compact package that we have seen, and appears to offer a lot fot the dollar. I've already been posting questions and I thank all for the helpful replies.

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!

Welcome Bill. Cruising the country in a 5.0TA is a great way to see it.
Happy Motoring

Bill, we too are in the Nashville area and hVe decided on the 5.0. We are a few years away from retirement, but are planning in getting one soon so we can start enjoying ourselves. I too have been posting questions and have been thankful for all the great information and insight from forum members.

Welcome Bill and Sherry, looks like there are going to be lots of Escapes in middle Tennessee. Good choice on the 5.0. We love our 2016 19 model, but if we ever decide on a change, it will be the 5.0.

We are still about 7 years from retirement, but wanted to go ahead and start enjoying our selves while we wait.

BillE and Sabres

In response to your interest, I thought to mention the next somewhat nearby rally that would have an assortment of Escape models to visit.

Green Eggs and Ham is in March near Montgomery, AL, and last year had around a dozen Escapes of nearly all configurations. If you haven't seen plenty by then, come make a day trip or overnight. The rally is just a few miles from town.
