2015 Escape TA 5.0

We have been camping for several years and have upgraded several times from tenting through three trailers and now with the Escape TA 5.0

Seeing the attention to detail in the demo unit in 2014 showed that over the years since we bought our 17B, Escape Trailer Industries (ETI) has maintained their vision of building compact, light, well built small trailers.  The TA 5.0 is the result of 10 years of design/model development and it shows.  ETI will customize every customer’s trailer, but my ideas were beyond reasonable customization.  I like the challenge of designing and building.  I see adapting the stock trailer to my wants and making it unique like our previous Escape trailer.  The modifications were easy for me because it has good bones to start with.

We ordered the trailer in mid 2014 and picked it up late January 2015.  I spent the next 3 months designing, modifying and building to get ready for the camping season.  This site shows most of the changes done to the trailer.  The majority of the changes were done to the interior with a few to the outside.  Some changes are ongoing as it is hard to leave things alone.

  1. We are planning to order a 5.0TA in 2016 as soon as ETI starts taking them. Your ideas and execution are amazing. I admire the craftsmanship and enjoy seeing all the pictures. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thank you for sharing your modifications. The creativity and workmanship is very inspiring. My wife and I have a 16′ Scamp right now, but often talk about getting the Escape 5.0…

    Some of your ideas will be used in similar situations for our Scamp, others will have to wait until we one day have an Escape 😉

    I look forward to seeing some of the future modifications that you allude to in your write-ups.

    Again, thanks for sharing!
