Soon to be full timers in 5.0TA!

Hi Escapers!

We put a deposit down for an Escape 5.0TA and will be moving into it full time within the coming months. We're newbies to the RV lifestyle so it will be an adventure to say the least!!

We're still getting used to this forum and how to use it, but we sure are loving all the great resources and welcoming community.

We're finalizing our build sheet this week, would love to hear opinions on final specs. I'll post up our questions to the other forums.

Looking forward to learning with you all!

Welcome to the site. You will enjoy your trailer.

I would recommend perusing older threads on the various opinions of mods and options to get. Given you are new to trailer travel this will help a lot, and you will get lots of explanations this way.

After you have gone though your build sheet, that would be the time to ask for verification or opinion on the various options. Many folks got some I didn't want, and lots I have done others would not do.

Welcome! If you wear a mask and are up for a Ferry ride across Puget sound, I would be happy to show you mine and the options we went with. Our 5.0 turned 1 year old April 23rd. PM me if interested.
