Well, at least you are close enough to visit Chilliwack on weekends.

Congrats.

Thanks Glenn. I guess I should go actually look at a 19' before we finalize the order ...but I've got most of the year to plan.

The 19 would be my choice if I was willing to buy a new tow vehicle.

I've been in the 21 once, but I wasn't there to check it out. I was there to move pictures from my computer to Tammy's at the Escape Rally for potential publication in a magazine. I was under self-induced stress as a retired photographer. I didn't look at it as a potential owner, but I've had dinner in my buddy's 19, steaks and corn on the cob and a few beers at the four-person dinette in the front.
The 19 has a permanent bed in the back and a four person table in the front and around 4" more aisle space in the middle than my 17B. My impression (under stress remember) is that the 21 had terrific counter space, a huge high tech fridge, but that I felt more closed in.
So, what it comes down to is that I had fond memories of relaxing with a glass of port after dinner in the 19 and I was stressed about getting pictures to a magazine in the 21.
Perfectly useless information, if you ask me.

I really am interested in why people pick the 19 over the 21, so thanks for sharing.

Secondly, I just really enjoy reading your posts!

We really wanted a small lightweight fiberglass trailer. We looked at several options, but my 6'1" husband did not fit. The 19' Escape was the smallest trailer where my husband could stand up straight.

Congrats on the order. There was no option to view before I did any planning, as it was not even in production at the time (I have the #6 19). I did go to the factory to meet Reace and Tammy, and finalize some details though.

I too am one who prefers the 19 over the 21. I get what I consider a prefered layout, as I like the bed away from the doorway. Don't get me wrong, the 21 is a great trailer, but for the extra size, both in width and length, the only thing advantageous to me is more counter space, and we do just fine in the 19. If weather is at all half decent, we prefer to prep and cook outside. Besides, the table makes for hand counter space while prepping if needed too.

Now ask me if I had to choose between the 19 and 5.0TA. Though quite different beasts, I really like both.

The 19's bed is also what sealed my choice. Being 6 ft 7 the 21's bed position quickly got my attention. But then learned it's not as wide as the 19's. Since my backyard spot is also tough to back into the 19 footer pushes me to the limit.

I'll always prefer big over small but one day I might no longer have a pickup and wanted the flexibility of pulling with a smaller vehicle. Originally wanted the 17B but we're actually thinking of letting our son borrow it. He's 6'-5" and the extra space helps. That and I like the idea of a fixed larger bed.
