We are looking a family of 4 & dog, looking for a new Camper. I found a Pic of the Escape 5.0 5th wheel and love the design, floor plan, weight, ....
Started searching for used ones, but could not even find one. Can anybody point me in a better direction, then I am looking right now. Of course I am willing to travel.
Can anyone share their experience with the 5.0, quality, towing, .....
Hi:5onWheels... The last 5.0 sold used was about 2yrs ago. They are the rarest fiberglass trailers to come on the market. Everyone that has one loves it so... as I do. We're using ours as a guest bedroom right now.
As far as towing it's a pure dream and hooking up is just so easy. When I retire in a couple years we will be bringing our Escape Hatch to Florida for all or part of the winter.
Sorry the news isn't better about used avail. but that speaks volumes about Escape trailers. Alf

We picked up a new 5.0 in March and took it down the Pacific coast for a couple of months. Like Roger from Florida we had never seen an Escape before but everyone on the forums loves them so we decided to try it.
We started a few years ago with a Trillium, then a Kamparoo (a tiny tent camper from Australia), then a Winnebago VW Eurovan camper van. We've been just about everywhere in Canada and the USA (except Florida), including Alaska, and would trade RVs based on our next trip. The Escape 5.0 is by far the best of all of them for our needs and we'll be keeping it forever. It hooks up so easy, tows real well, and is roomy enough for us with lots and lots of storage.
Hopefully you'll be joining the Escape "club" soon,
