The terminology used here is very awkward. Dave's trailer has the new body style that Escape is switching to over this year; by 2017 all production will be in the new style, and so this new style is being called the "2017" version of Escapes. This thread is for "2017-style" trailers.

Only 17' and 19' trailers of the 2017 style have been completed so far for customers, with some 21' 2017-style units now in production; that's why you're seeing those in this thread, and not yet seeing the 5.0TA.

Very nice. I find the under bed support change quite a surprise. Don't think that had been mentioned prior. Almost like a pass-through storage on the big iron RVs.
Enjoy, and congrats. Look forward to many more reports as you get it into the wild.

I think I would want vertical supports under the bed . I put 1/8 ply on mine to seperate what is in my outside storage from the interior . I also would not like the stuff under the bed damaging my water heater etc. I have mine seperate using verticals putting 1/8 ply . That was the first mod I did because my 25 ft cord was tangled under the bed . Since it is separated never have had a problem .Maybe luck will be on your side . Pat

Got what you were saying Pat.
I was thinking similar, because I want to add the dual drawers on slides to utilize the space under bed and be able to access those from the front cabinet doors which would effectively block the sections. I like your idea of doing the 1/8 ply separators, may steal that from you.

Those vertical walls served several purposes other than support, they kept things away from the pump and water heater, particularly metal objects that could do some harm. I'll have to enclose some of that area partially.

I was thinking that there's enough room for everything to go sliding around. I might have to do some partitioning like you did. At least with it open I can configure it the way I want.

Would be a very prudent idea .Previous RV's had a nice enclosed box for cord . I think you have the removable cord but I would be concerned about other items being comprised on drivers side with things sliding around .pretty easy to put support walls . You can screw into bed frame from top into . I did not screw into under bed floor I glued with ,construction adhesive, blocks that I could screw into to hold supports . Don't forget your water tank is under the bed area . Pat

What's the opposite of "classic"? Not that "classic" will be clear later...
