There is always a bumper pull 21' Escape
For some reason she has a thing for fifth wheels, I think that's what there called. In reality the 17ft is all the trailer we need

A 17 is likely all any of us need, it is more a matter of want.

No doubt you will enjoy your 19ft, not much longer!

We love our 19', but that doesn't stop us from looking at photos of the 5.0TA. Just sayin' ...

Just got back from my two week bow hunting trip and had an excellent time with my cousin and we enjoyed the 17a immensely! Everything worked flawlessly and as expected.

During the mornings(which started at 4:00am) we hunted till 9:30 and spent mid day hanging around the campsite. Evenings came and found ourselves hunting again.

I was blessed early in the week when on Monday evening I got what we went for. The rest of the week I still got up at 4:00am to drop my cousin off at the property we were hunting which was a 600 acre public access parcel. He had a couple opportunities but no shot.

We also had the opportunity to use my new camp chef explorer grill and love it!

I have this tradition that I picked up from an old hunting friend from Maine more that 27 years ago, when one of us would get one we would drink a moxie! Over the years it's evolved into not being able to drink a moxie at any time of the year unless a deer was brought home. It's MOXIE time!
