I know some people want the bed up front but I wonder why. If you back into most places, then the front is likely the street side. I would want the bed in back right where it is in the 19'. Does the front bed have some advantage?

This layout wil be nice for the people who realy like the dinnete in the rear, and it looks like there will be a bit more open floor space. the front bed is a doudle not a queen isn't it?

Where we usually boon-dock, the location of the dinette is moot, as either end would give us a good view, though we rarely eat at it, preferring the great outdoors. As far as campsites go, there too I have probably had at least as many that offer a view to the front, as much as a view to the rear, though some of the ones that do offer a view to the rear, have an awesome view, like backing onto a lake.

This layout does look to be quite open.

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

I was realy curious as to what this would be like. I don't see any real advantage for us over a 19 ft, In fact the front bed is not as apealing to me, i think queen in the 19 ft is better suited for us and i am not sure how i would feel with a solid wall beside the bed for the bathroom, it might be a little to closed in for me. I am with you Jim I don't realy see the advantage of the rear dinnete, we almost never eat inside and in fact our dinnete will be almost always be as a bed for our daughter. But hey for some people the rear dinnete is a big thing so here is the alternative.

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

I hate to be the naysayer in this but I gotta tell ya I think that Escape could well be shooting themselves in the foot with this offering. They have strongly established themselves in a niche in the travel trailer market that needed filling and have done it well. Rather than succumbing to a case of "two-footitis", I feel they should continue to improve on their current product line. I would hate to see the "small rig with big comfort" get lost in the rush to be all things to all people.

I know Escape is not about to consult me regarding their marketing plans but I am a bit skeptical about this one. We'll have to wait and see how it sells.

Doug

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

I think they'll do just fine.. I personally like the corner bed and dinette in back.. The fridge may be larger as well not too sure..

But since the build them on demand.. The cost will be in building the mold and putting together the first one.. Everything else will be as the sales drive it.. I'm sure the guts will be the same..

Doug, you might have missed The number one selling trailer was the half ton towable 22 feet to 38' in North America.

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

Wow, I like it, a lot!

What I like:

Front bed / Rear dinette. When one needs to be inside, usually due to weather, the best view is usually out the back of the trailer. Out the front is, almost always, the back end of your tow vehicle and the campground road. Putting the bed up front allows the "living room" (dinette) to be in the back where the view is likely to be better and a little more private.

Front bath. I also like the bathroom out of the middle of the trailer. The bath in the middle, for me, visually makes the trailer feel smaller. It forces the available floor space to be long and narrow.

Full size bed. Building a compact trailer always involves compromises on how much space to devote to what. For me, a queen size bed is overkill. Full size is plenty fine. At home, where we have 1600 sqft to work with, I like a queen size bed (and being able to walk around it). In a trailer, full size works fine (it is bigger than the bed in the 17'). As a bonus, in this layout, no more crawl over required in the middle of the night since the bed is north/south. It is an end crawl (like the 5.0), but, you don't have to climb stairs first. You have to compromise somewhere to get it all in.

No growth in the width. The trailer will still be compact, lightweight, and easy to tow and manuever.


What I hope for:

Windows! There is nothing like letting in lots of light to help make the space feel larger and less confining, expecially windows on all four walls. The 19' is pretty good that way, but, of necessity limited by the "big brown wall" down the left side.

A minor thing ... I would keep the fridge/microwave stack from the 19' and make that left side counter a little larger, like the one in the 5.0 (cabinets above and below), allowing another window in the middle of the left side.


An observation ... There appears to be a little space left over at the end of the bed. I am thinking that eases entry into the bed by leaving a little aisle between the bed and cabinet. Might want to consider giving that up by not stretching the body quite the full two feet and make a true 21'. Sometimes smaller is better. Back to those compromises ...


Great job! Looking forward to what comes next.

Bill
