Thanks Kirk,
Does it make you want to upgrade?

No, I am happy with my 2014 model. There isn't anything new on the 2017 that I can't live without, and I prefer some things on the 2014, like no pole next to the sink. If I upgrade, it will because I want a different layout, perhaps the north-south bed in a 5.0.

I hear there are some folks on the forum that get a new Escape trailer every year, imagine that!

No pole in the 19 demo but will have one in final run, per Escape.

There was a pole in the trailer I was in yesterday, and I asked if the pole was standard in 2017, and was told yes. So the trailer I saw must have been a different unit from the one Laura photographed.

Both 19s at the rally had a pole, if I remember correctly.

I found the pole in the 21' Escape to be very helpful in exiting the trailer particularly when making those pit stops and the steps are retracted.

p.s. could you please measure the outside "track" of the wheels?

i know the frame is 4" wider, and thus the wheels will have a bit wider stance as well.

our parking space has a couple obstacles on the way back in.... the 'track' will be good to know.

thanks.
