Price Reduced - Upgraded 2012 Escape 5.0 $27.5k

For Sale, 2012 Escape 5.0

Here's your chance to own one of the best fiberglass trailers made. With a dry weight of 2650 lbs., gross weight of 4400 lbs., pretty much any pickup truck can tow it with ease...even the higher-clearance off-road trucks! Since it's under 7 feet wide, it's about the same width as your truck, so you don't have to worry about fitting between those one-lane construction barriers or getting sucked in by a tractor trailer. At 20 feet long, you have a world of possibilities. City driving, narrow roads, parking lots, tight turnarounds, and of course those out-of-the-way camping spots...no problem!

Pictures not enough? Want to see it? Take a virtual tour with our video at Escape 5.0 Modifications and Walkthrough

How's the gas mileage you ask? If we're doing the speed limit, we only lose about 3 to 4 mpg. In fact, even at a pretty good clip, the worst we got was about 5 less than normal. Pretty great for a home on wheels!

We've added significant after-market upgrades both during the initial build and after, to make it even better:

Everything listed totaled over $37,000 (not including taxes or shipping) during the time when the US dollar was under valued to the Canadian dollar. We've kept excellent care of our memory-maker, and though we'll be very sad to see her go, life unfortunately changed, forcing our hand. Escape Industries is no longer making the single axle version, so you can't even get our model anymore, which means higher tolls for you on the road. There have been no pets, and no smoking in here. We're asking $27,500 for this majorly upgraded, vacation ready beauty. One thing is for sure, you're going to make friends on the road with this fifth-wheel. Everyone asks about it wherever we go. Just make sure that when they say, "It's so cute!" you respond with, "No, it's SPORTY!" I know you'll love it. We definitely do! I can be contacted through here, or via eml at my username at gmail.

I'm just now getting serious about a Fifth Wheel for Full Timing retirement. This looks like an incredible unit. Is it still available?

Hi Bill

I would jump on this if you can. The price is very fair. Sure its across the country from you but I am sure you could make it work.

We just bought a 2007 5.0 and love it, we looking forward to being snowbirds this winter in NM and AZ

The financing fell through on our last possible buyer, so we're back on the market. If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask.

We have a deposit on hand, and I'm very confident the buyer is committed to the sale. I'll be sure to update here when the time comes.

Thanks
