We have a Casita 17 and have traveled a great deal in the 6 years of ownership and loved it. But, last year we did a 101 nights in it and things changed. It got smaller somehow and then we saw an Escape 5.0 and that got me thinking. I took a tour of a 21 and and the first thought was "Perfect". We get ours in July and I can hardly wait. One more trip in the Casita in Feb to Florida and then we let it go. Good luck on your decision.

Yet another (former) Casita owner here. We bought our FD new and picked it up in Texas in 2005. We had a blast with it for almost 8 years, it was hard to let it go but somehow ours started to shrink too! We had looked at the 19, more storage, smaller bathroom, crawl over bed, hmmm. Saw the 21 at Bandon and, as John said - it was perfect (for us). Good luck on you're choice, bet the new 5.0 is going to be a beauty too! Escape makes a top quality product, don't think you can go wrong and we have definitely felt the same camaraderie here as on the Casita forums.

Happy Trails
Dave & Kathie

Dave shocked me last July in Bandon when he said he ordered a Escape 21. I never thought he would sell his Casita.

I think if we make the move to Escape it will be to the 21 to get a bed that does not require the "crawl over". The 5th wheel looks nice but I don't want to give up my truck bed for the hitch. It will be a process for sure and one that may take some time.

Thanks for all the enthusiastic input.

Shocked me too Chuck! I was speechless and those of you who know me also know that doesn't happen very often!
