The front dinette in the 17B slides - I'm fairly sure it would fit with the table slid to the far side since I travel solo and wouldn't need to center the table after sitting. I'd also be able to use it outside on picnic tables, etc. Awful tempting!

Escape 19 looked really good except for two things (for us):

- Wet washroom
- Lack of bed isles

Is it even remotely possible to consider either of these options for the new 21ft model?

Also, what would be the GVWR of this model? Is it going to be similar to the 19ft model with less CCC or will it exceed 5000lb?

Very intrigued with the 21ft model.

You will not likely get anything but a wet bath, as though a few are not keen, most like myself prefer this option, as it frees up space for other uses. We rarely use the shower anyway.

As far as the bed aisles go, unless they decided to go even wider, and completely rebuild the mould, I doubt that there would be room on both sides for walking. With the width it is now, and with a full queen width, there would be only 20" left over, not enough for two aisles.

21' Escape

Hello,

We are currently working on the mold and the plug for the 21’ Escape and hope to have the first ones available late Spring however, we do not have them scheduled to enter production until October in case there are any unforeseen delays. Reace and I were just in Vernon looking at the 'plug' and other than being teal it looks fantastic!

We expect the 21’ Escape to weigh about 300lbs –400lbs more than the 19’ Escape which means we will probably recommend a 5000lbs minimum towing capacity.


Based on the current Standard Features list we anticipate the base price of this trailer to be $25,500.

Reace and Tammy

Wow, less than $2k for the extra 2 feet, great deal. All the previous models jumped at least $2k to upgrade another 2 feet, this one is $1,500. HHHmmm, anyone interested in a slightly used 19'??

2x4 tubular frame construction.
14" tires
For comparison, the 19' has 2500 lb capacity axles and a 4000 lb GVWR.

What size is the frame tubing in the 19'?

Reace and Tammy, will the 21' GVWR be higher to maintain cargo carrying capacity - perhaps 5000 pounds? The recommended tow vehicle capacity and the trailer's GVWR are not quite the same thing.

Since the axle ratings have went up by 500lb, perhaps GVWR will go up by 1000lb to 6000lb?
