Love the one you're with!

Who am I to tell anyone they should or shouldn't have a bathroom? It's all about wants/needs and we all know that's different for each one of us.

Frankly (IMHO) I don't care how many 5.0TAs are built. I own number 10 and it's MINE, all MINE

Sounds like all the flack Karen gets for not having a bathroom may be somewhat unwarranted, as her floorplan is the more popular one (at least for the 15').

* Yes, she approved these numbers being made public.

Glad you asked about this as many with a 15' will want to know for selling. Did you ask about the 13' or does someone know? They are now part of ETI's history.

Yeah...thank you, Washingtonia! We will be in elite and exclusive company when we say we have one of only 104 made. Good deal. (Except for those who were counting on getting one in the future. )

So Karen, that means your new mantra when showing off Egbert will be "You know, less than 60 of these were ever made. Limited edition."

It appears to me, however, that with eight units still on the books, that it was something more than demand that drove their decision...probably, as others have mentioned, the difficulty in construction and the profit margin.

Well, shoots, I thought mine was the last they would make. Guess it makes sense there are still some in the pipeline.

But those really aren't high numbers. And I think having a bathroom is a waste of space. Easier to use a portapotty and/or nearby facilities than lose all that space. In a bigger trailer, it makes more sense.

It does seem like an impressive number, but I bet it pales compared to the other models. Even the 17 seems to be less popular now. But yeah, wiith the greater demand for the bigger units, comes a better profit margin for Escape. No matter how nice of people you are, you are in it to make a living.

Of course, if the total number ever built was 9, you'd be outta luck.

Nope, I didn't ask about those.
