Hi from a future Escapee!

I’m starting the purchase of a 5.0 because I loved the one I toured. Everyone I have seen or fired questions at has been so helpful and kind. (Oliver people were nice, but many were down on anything but Oliver, and let’s be honest, $60k is a lot of money for a camper). Anyway, I’m a work from home environmental contractor/hazmat spills biller/admin for the last 15 years and I am ready to get on the road and have my own adventures, hopefully, without any of the hazmat spills, train crashes, or sewage spills I’ve been documenting for years. And I want an Escape to call my home. So, this is my introduction, and all the last thing I will say is, I love the pocket screen doors, I really want one, why are they gone?.

They were phased out when Escape went to new squarer molds and a flat door in favor of the standard screen door. If you can find a "classic" model they were used due to the curved door.



It is a cassette type system so you could probably install one in any trailer if you really wanted. SEIKI SCREEN SYSTEMS | Products | Vista Plus Screen:Features

Hi: QueenBee731... Our 5.0TA was the #2 in production and still relevant today. Yes the roller screen is great but the trailer came with a fridge that just wasn't. The new doors are not so nifty but the fridge that fits thru them is!!! Whatever the trailer I really dislike warm beer. Alf

Ahh you folks have never had the pleasure of Guinness, commonly known as mother’s milk in Ireland.
