I would guess there are 55 of them. Do we get a new 21' if we're closest?

Looks like the 15B is gone from the ETI website. 2 15a's left. I guess one thing the announcement did was to get someone to commit!

We have the porta potty for nighttime use and find it quite handy. Our priorities were for maximum space and a permanent bed (with lots of underbed storage) rather than a tiny bathroom so we didn't even consider the B model. Living in close quarters in a 15 is good for weight control! Can't get too large or won't fit!!

One of the chief reasons my wife was interested in a little camping trailer was that she attends music camps, often tenting, and the supplied "johnny-on-the-spot" (s) simply get...gross...especially if the folks are drinking and playing all night long. So, the camper would have to shield her from the noise of such goings on (after she has finally left such goings on herself, of course!) and would also have to be able to provide her with a cleaner bathroom experience.
Maybe we should just go buy a porta-potty and see if that works for her...as a test, it might help us make up our minds quicker.
We used to use a porta-potty but when we were planning on our trailer purchase we got to thinking about lugging the full container to the outhouse or where ever to dump it I could tell you horror stories.
I would really consider going for the bathroom, it's much more convenient. Be aware the 15 and 17 foot trailer bathroom ceilings are very low, for me anyway.

I also would advise considering a wet bath over the porta-potty. The wet bath has a door, and that could come in very handy during a stormy evenings card game with the campers down the way.

What?!? What a revoltin' development this is!

Yeah, you can't argue with the market, etc. etc. But the 15' is so sweet to tow. We have more than enough room. You can get into/out of pretty much any campground RV spot. And everytime we wax it, we're very grateful it isn't any longer.

Arrgh.

Well. At least our resale value just jumped. And I can start saying to everybody I meet on the road, "Ya know, you can't get these any more." So there's that.

Your Escape just got exponentially more special! I never got to see a 13 in person (just photos) but I did spend some time in the 15 during my visit to ETI a few months ago. What a special and wonderful trailer. If it were just me, the 15 would have been my only choice.

Love our 15A

Did you order the little portable Thetford and have the under seat storage door put in ( ETI's $200 option for this)?
We love the simplicity of our 15A. Just one year old but we have camped at least 6 weeks in 2014. Never found the lack of toilet an issue as we use provincial and state parks with facilities. We do have the storage door for the future if needed but right now that spot is a perfect shoe storage place.

I'm sorry to see the end of the 15-footers. Last year we nearly decided on a 15A. It had plenty of room for us, especially since we were accustomed to a small space (our VW Westfalia camper). We like the idea of the front dinette and the outside shower option, and the smaller trailer size should be easier to maneuver and tow. We eventually got a 17B because of the bathroom, but even after several weeks of camping we have yet to use the "facility".
