Suggestion: 19: get normal dinette (not u shape) in back without ETI table (smooth floor). Raise first part benches the thickness of the table, so when table (remaining 24" of bench) comes down, it fits to make smooth bench surface. Creating your u shape, and in the mean time giving you leg room when table is up. Order cushion in the following configuration: 2 smaller ones for first part (to use when table is up), and separate ones for when the table is in the bench position. For the dining table: go with a foldable one from the store or even custom made, that is easy to move.
To hang the table over the whole width should not be a problem as it also gets done for cots.

Actually, that is only true if you have locked down your build sheet. And you don't have to do that until right before your build date.

Probably not much help but I was told if I ordered a 5.0TA on April 1, I would probably get it in January but, depending on demand, could be February or March.
Apparently, their new facility is not ready and ETI doesn't want to commit.
I'm sure this really cleared things up for you.

The gal that does the Sarandipity blog had some photos of the stunning revamp she did in her trailer, a 17B. One of which was a fold down table in front of the door. Granted, it's a different trailer than what you're thinking of, but it might give you some ideas.

Be prepared to drool like crazy over her renovations! I'm in serious lust over what she did.

I agree. We got the u-shaped dinette as I love that arrangement. In hindsight, I wouldn't do it again as the table is too small if we have to be inside. Usually the weather is cooperative and we can be outside. The one thing I do like about the u-shaped is that we remove the table and use it as a lounge area.

We are getting the U-shaped on our upcoming 19. I actually like the idea of a smaller table, seems like it would be easier to store "somewhere" when we are using it as a lounge area, which will be a good deal of the time. Where do you store yours?

these 19 vs 21 threads are interesting to this newbie soon to be rv trailer owner..when trying to decide just what the proper trailer length was and what I was willing to leave behind to fit in it...walking one day a Jayco Seismic triple (3) wheel trailer passed by and I said ...wow I could fit the whole lab in there!...but then I realized the whole reason for this rv trailer idea for me was to leave the rat race behind and enjoy what's left in life and as many sunsets as I could.....
the Escape 19 from a size standpoint should get the job done for me.

My sheet says "Deadline for confirmation is March 9 2016" and my delivery date is June 9 2016 so looks like it is three months before unless they have changed that in the interim.

That is correct, 3 months out. Our build date is August 3rd, deadline for confirmation was May 3rd. We had already gone ahead and locked ours down though when the prices of some of the options went up, so we did have to pay the $200 charge for the model change.
