We are not full timers, but we used to think about it a lot. My husband is still employed, although we have summers off. We're buying a 19 for extended trips -- We'll pick it up in late May or early June and travel with it probably for a month or more at that time. We also went through a lot of ideas -- vans, airstreams, A-liners. What it came down to for us is that we wanted the smallest trailer we could get with a queen sized bed. As you may have seen from other posts, i was at the factory last week and I'm really happy now about our choice. Originally we saw a 19 and I thought it might be too small and we looked at a 5.0. Lying down in the 5.0 was important because even though I liked the layout, I didn't like the low ceiling. Others don't mind it, don't even think about it, but that wouldn't have worked for me. If you really know what you want and can visualize the layout, then this 21 could work for you. You say you are leaving in April? Where are you going?

We plan on spending some time in Florida. Giving lecture in Orlando in April, then to the Keys. Lots of places we want to experience......! Where do you go for month or more at time?

Another reason is that shows are often run by local dealer associations, and Escape (like some other specialty RV manufacturers) do not currently sell through dealers.

I have a 5.0 if you drive through the Atlanta area, I live south of the city. You are welcome to look at ours, though I know you are eyeballing the 21.

How kind of you, Todd. Very much appreciated. Wow; what a great site this is. Could you give me a brief customer satisfaction statement/s about your 19? How long you have it; and how it performs and houses you when out traveling?

While this trailer for sale at Escape (and I believe it's the second one) is a super deal for someone (or a fast-track deal for someone already in the queue), it's sad to know that it must be a cancellation and that someone's dream went up in smoke...

We love it. I bought it earlier this year, and have completed 5 long weekends in it. Usually it is just Kim and I, but we have had my daughter and fiancée along with us too. It sleep 4 well. When traveling, what ever doesn't fit in the truck, we put in the camper. I filled both LP bottles and have not even gone through the first one yet... heater and cooking included. We put the AC on it, and are very glad we did. You know the south! You can hang meat in the trailer with the air full up. With the heater, you get year round camping down here. We got it pretty much loaded. I bought it from Escape like the one you are looking at. It was a lot demo. They put whatever I asked on it for a very reasonable fee in my opinion. I liked the stock interior. Tows like a dream. I got sick on our first trip out and asked my wife to drive it home. She drove it through downtown Atlanta with no problems. I was so proud of her. She said it was easy to tow too. At the campsites, its really easy to set up and tear down. I am a big dude @ 6 feet and 230lbs. I can shower just fine and have plenty of room in the camper. Plenty of room in the bed with the wife... its a full queen. I actually sleep better in it than I do at home! We spend lots of time outside, but when inside, its comfortable and with the TV, just like home. Very cool when it rains, we love the sound of the drops hitting the top. First experience it when I was looking at it in Chilliwack. It used every available spot for storage, and we still have yet to run out of room. These trailers are awesome... promise. And, very economical to tow. I did not want to tow the whole state of Georgia behind the back of my truck. So this was perfect for us. I looked at Casitas, and they were nice, but these just blew it out of the water in my opinion. My head hit the ceiling in the casita. At the steps going up to the bed, I have 6 or more inches to go. I even got head room in the bathroom. The huge windows make it feel very open and spacious. Hope this helps. I do have some photos of it one this site, but I don't know how to link you to them. Maybe someone can help me on that.

Mark someone may have already told you but Matagorda Madness is in two weeks and there will be six Escapes there. No 21s but 19s and 5s, I've got a 19 on order but we are going to look and ask questions for our build list. What part of Houston are you in, we are on the north side in Spring.
