The Escape 5.0TA Trailer
The Escape 5.0TA targets trucks with a minimum 5’6″ bed and suitable payload/tow capacity. The aerodynamic design, tandem axle and low center of gravity makes for better road stability, fuel economy, and decreased wind resistance. The one piece fiberglass trailer construction creates an incredibly stiff and smooth structure to last a lifetime.

RV Review: Escape 5.0TA Fiberglass Fifth-Wheel
By Chris Herner – September 29, 2019
The Escape 5.0TA offers fifth-wheel benefits in a package that can be towed by almost any full-size pickup.
We’ve been entangled in a few heated debates with readers over the years on the subject of half-ton fifth-wheel towing. “You can’t do it!” they howled. “There’s not enough payload capacity!” We calmly attempted to explain that, depending on the size of the fifth-wheel, its pin weight and the tow rating of the truck in question, that it is indeed possible.

One-Piece Fiberglass Shell Construction
The Escape 5.0TA has a 100% molded fiberglass body, hand-laid in a two-piece mould. Our fiberglass team bonds the upper and lower halves together before the shell is demolded as one piece and bolted to the frame. Anchor points are fiberglassed in strategic locations for mounting the interior cabinetry and walls. This method of construction ensures a structurally solid trailer. This durable, seamless trailer will not twist or distort over time.
Lightweight & Aerodynamic Design
Many key features of the Escape make it lightweight and aerodynamic. The Escape 5.0TA weighs approximately 3810lbs (dry weight) keeping travel costs to a minimum. The Escape 5.0TA targets the mid-size truck market and most trucks, including short-beds, with a V6 engine can tow the Escape. The aerodynamic design of the Escape 5.0TA incorporates a low center of gravity for better road stability and decreased wind resistance. This combined with the rubber torsion suspension axle, which is used in all of our Escape models, not only reduces vibration while travelling but also provides independent suspension and is maintenance-free. The 15” radial tires (including the full-size spare) are balanced before you pick up your trailer.
The Escape 5.0TA comes standard with an easy and comfortable galley with a large 6 cubic foot fridge, a full interior shower and toilet, queen upper bunk, independent power landing gear, and plenty of storage. The interior is professionally finished with natural maple or light oak cabinetry – the doors are solid wood, large windows, high-grade linoleum flooring and a unique insulated vinyl headliner/wall covering for a clean, bright and hygenic finish.
