After they finish this trailer and successfully enter that market... I'd like to put in a request for a 13' fifth wheel. Seriously.

Re: 21' Escape - Coming Soon - Photo mock up and floorplan

Most of our units are actually 6"-8" longer than their advertised length. The new 'proposed' 21' will be 21', which means we are only looking to extend the existing 19' body by 18". 14" in front of the door and 4" behind the axles. Our goal was to achieve a 'north-south' bed in the front...as large as possible, and a rear 4 person dinette. What falls in the middle is bonus. The kitchen is going to be around 60" long which will allow for a double sink and still leave plenty of counter space. The other side will have the new 6.3 cu ft fridge with micro and storage beside. The front bed will lift with shock assist for access to storage.

There is always the 2-foot-itis market. What we hope to tap into a bit more with the 21' is the down-sizeing market.




Donna...they already make 13' fifth wheels! You just need to put a frame under a camper!

There should be plenty of the down sizing market with the way fuel prices continue to go.

Sorry, couldn't help myself.

I think this new 21 foot looks great!
Best of luck and continued success to you and Tammy.

Yeah!! Only 18" longer, that's what I was hoping for. I am going to revise my weight estimate down to 2800 pounds dry. Reese is a miracle worker on keeping the weight down. You could almost call it the Escape 19plus, but, I guess Escape 21 has a better ring to it.

I think this is a great addition to the lineup.

Re: 21' Escape - Coming Soon - Photo mock up and floorplan

Just curious about something, i am wondering why the proposed lay out basics ie the bed and rear dinnette couldn't be done in the 19 ft shell. I wonder if it is a problem with wheel wells or some thing like that ? if the 21 is actually a foot and a 1/2 bigger I wonder what is in the way?

Re: 21' Escape - Coming Soon - Photo mock up and floorplan

The 2 major obstacles in designing a floorplan is the entry door and the wheels. Sooooo many times I have the request of ...why don't you just move this or that, and my response almost 100% of the time is...'the wheels are there'. If I could just stagger the wheels....hmmmm.

While down in Bandon, I had found a way to make a rear - north south bed in the 19', but the front dinette would only seat 2 people. I asked about 15-20 couples if they would give up the 4 person dinette for the north south bed....and not one said yes....hmmm, back to the drawing board.
