Very exciting! Interesting too: good floorplan, well equipped. Looks like standard 5W pin hitch. With 0.88 US exchange it looks like $21k. I look forward to hearing more in time...

Happy trails,
-Bob

With Escape apparently back to factory distribution, it would be good to know which RV shows will feature the new 5.0 on display... I don't see a list on the website. Any plans yet, Reace?

Reace confirmed in the topic Escape 5th Wheel Layout that this is a true fifth-wheel coupling (specifically "a kingpin as dimensioned in SAE Standard J700").

You got my interest for sure.

1. When do you think it will be available?
2. What price range are you targeting?
3. Is the length measured from end of trailer to tip of front where bed is?
4. What do you expect it to weigh?
5. What size tires are you planning?

Thanks, Donna,

I was in such a hurry to place the post because the wife was ready to leave for shopping I did not have time to look at their website.

It looks like the unit is made like the Casita, in that there is two halves and the bottom half is a complete fiberglass shell, as is the top half. That way when the flooring is laid down inside it is not exposed to the elements like some trailer s are. Do you think this is correct?

I assume the size is measured from the front of the figer shell to the rear of the shell, Maybe Reace can answer that one.

I'll look on their website for the options and costs, like the cost of the A/C and other items.

I suspect the total out the door cost in U.S. dollars will be around $25,000 with options added???

Tom

Trailers are measured as “Overall Length”. The maximum from the front of the hitch or fiberglass (which ever sticks out further) to the back of the bumper - Overall”.

The Escape 5.0 is designed to be towed behind smaller trucks such as Ford Ranger, Mazda, Nissan, Toyota, Colorado, etc. With a dry weight of 2500 lbs, a 3.0 litre V6 would be the smallest engine size I would recommend. The 5.0 is 6'-8" wide in the center and tapers to 6'-2" wide at the front and 9' tall at the highest point. The angled front nose will help deflect the wind off the truck, helping to reduce wind drag on the highway.

The total length of the body is 19'-4".

Two new features we have added - the 5.0 will come standard with independant power landing gear, and the new Maxx Air Roof Fan rather than a Fantastic Fan.

This is advertised for the same selling price as was the home we bought back in '69. I saw the same house in Edmonton selling now for 350,000. Wouldn't it be great if our trailers iccreased over the years accordingly?
Dream on!

The other Maxx fan product is the MaxxFan, which is the one I have. It folds down, which might be a particularly valuable feature on a trailer as tall as a fifth-wheel, although it would likely be more expensive. Perhaps more importantly, the MaxxFan is the vent, with integral fan, while the Turbo/Maxx is a fan mounted over the vent, so there are two components to mount to the trailer. Okay Reace, which one?

Sorry for the confusion, it is the MaxxFan we are installing in the 5.0
