Put that Mr Beams light in the bathroom for trip last week, and that is one 5 minute add that is worth it 10 times over.
May I ask which Mr. Beams model light you chose to install? Also did you install it in bathroom ceiling or wall since there is a fan in the ceiling? It is something I will want to use in our 19' when we get it.
Thanks

I installed this one https://amzn.to/2X0RHJL
Put it just below the belly band on the outside wall to the right of the sink. It faces the door so it comes on when the door opens and is low so light doesn’t get in your eyes. Used the 3M bath command strips on the back plate instead of the adhesive they supply. You have to make sure you leave enough room below the band because it slides up to come off to change the batteries if ever needed.

I think Reace now has more time to explore ideas he has, like a few new models.

Personally I have never run across a reasonably sized, non pop out, pull behind trailer that has a full size walk around bed of acceptable size...for us. They are either to short and/or to narrow.

If I were in the market for a new Escape my only question would be...what are the exact dimensions of the bed.

2 different Escape 19 owner-couples visited our 'classic' 21 over the past couple weeks, they all loved the 21's layout better than their 19 with its narrow aisle and small kitchen area. Both bought their 19's used and settled on the 19 because of their tow vehicle at the time (no longer an issue as both ended up upgrading anyways) and availability.

you need to go to an 8' wide trailer to get a walkaround queen. The Bigfoot 25's have this. E21's and 19s are 7' wide.

Actually the E19 is 7', the E21 is 7'4" according to their website, if I were 4" taller I would look thinner.....

Well that would not be of interest for those of us that enjoy the dinettes in the front or rear. Not sure I would sacrafice the dinette to get a walk around bed.

I really liked the Airstream 23FB for the full bath and walk around bed with huge windows. The layout looked perfect online...until I walked through one. The "walk around" bed was more like carefully squeeze around while ducking under the curved ceiling. The dinette is almost on top of anyone trying to work at the stove/sink or look in the fridge. The bathroom, while a full dry bath, really does sacrifice what is potentially the best view from the trailer.

I wonder if ETI is going to go wider on the 23'. I sorta think it would make more sense to go to 25' but maybe weight would really climb at that point.

Perhaps I noted too soon. I just looked at the Northern Lite web site. I am very sure that whatever they and Escape come out with will be of interest. For those who prefer a dry bath, Escape does not currently have an option. So from a marketing point of view I can see the intrest in adding this in a new model. However, I agree with Jim Bennett a 21 or 23 with something closer to the 19 layout would be very compelling.
