Not sure what you mean by the track. Do you want the measurement from the outside of one tire to the outside of the other tire? Yeah, I can probably do that.

Just got an email from Sarah and she's thinking it'll be done by the end of this month and that she'll keep me posted.

I thought the information from Escape was that the width across the tires is increased by the same amount as the frame width, but I agree that it is a good idea to get this confirmation.

Good idea to get this clarification - the industry standard measurement of track width for any vehicle is between tire centres, not outside-to-outside (which is what is needed here).

Laura, Since your going up to Chilliwack with a tape measure could you get the width of the aisle between the fridge side and the stove side cabinets. Thanks.

35" between the sink and the fridge, 28" from the bathroom to the closet. I am comparing these measuements to those in the Oliver Elite trailer.

You do realize the Oliver is a lot narrower than the Escapes....

Yardsale,

Thanks , but where did the measurements come from? You have a 17B, I've ordered a 21 and as everyone mentions the frame is wider along with the top and bottom of the trailer, from the straight sides. Did the aisle get wider? Did the cabinets get bigger? I wish to know did we get more room to move or more storage? A little of both? I know in the long run it doesn't matter much, but curiosity...

Oliver builds two models:
  • The smaller (17 feet long) Legacy Elite is listed as 6'6" outside width, which is 78", or two inches narrower than an Escape 17' and all of the traditional moulded fiberglass travel trailers (Boler 1300, Trillium 1300 and 4500, all Scamps, all Casitas...).
  • The larger (23 feet long) Oliver Legacy Elite II is listed as 7' outside width, which is 84" or the same as an Escape 19'.

The smaller Oliver reports an inside diameter of 6'2", our Escape is 3 inches wider. I haven't seen an Oliver but have one report by a new Oliver owner that it feels more spacious. We'll see. There really isn't any comparison from our cold weather perspective however as great as the Escapes are, they are simply not designed for sub freezing weather. Is that feature worth an extra $10,000+? A more difficult question.
