Shopping for an escape

Welcome aboard.

Are you specifically looking at the older discontinued 5.0, or looking at the 5.0TA as well?

If you look at the Owners Map located at the top of the page you will find some owners. As well, it is always advisable to contact Escape who will put you in touch with owners in your area.

A great trailer.

A lot roomier, better built, better equipped, and a lot better looking than the Scamp too. I might be a tad biased though.

Or you might just have very good taste.

lol I like both layouts it's just the 5.0 has more to offer in controls and options that i will not have to add and/or redo that and I like the fact it has tandem axles. Much more stable while towing and when it is set up for camping

Tandem Axle = TA
Thus the newer models are 5.0TAs, whereas the older single axle is just a 5.0. Just a clarification so we are sure what you are referring to.

Welcome Rockhead, until Monday why not look at the owners map at the tab at the top of this page, it will show some owners in Texas and a start to your list. Then Monday you can call and Escape will give you some phone numbers.

We're in Comfort, if you don't see a 5.0 TA at the Bluebonnet Rally, get in touch and stop by since you'll be "in the neighborhood".
