19 Rocks!

I just finished washing the new 19 for the first time. As a senior advancing in age I can't imagine how I'd get way up on a ladder and wash n wax a 5.0 TA someday soon. Less is more.....

Just got home from the Matagorda Rally, and I spent alot of time in the 5.0TA. It's really quite different than our 19, so I don't think there's a real comparison. It feels cavernous inside when compared to our 19. If you want ROOM, and you have a pickup, and the means, then the 5.0 TA is just super. We love our 19, and have no plans to change, but the 5er is what I consider the tip top from Escape.

Hi: Greg A... It took my wife to figure out that the 5.0TA can kneel down electrically to be washed by this old guy. Alf

Now I'm considering a new Escape. Please indulge me with your wisdom and experience. Please compare & contrast the 19 and the 5.0 TA? (both old and new)
For anyone who does not want a pickup or steps, the 21' is the more comparable to the 5.0TA.

Was just thinking I would miss my front box too . You can get the box with 21 too. I also put lots in my truck bed , most important extra water containers etc. ,if boondocking . There is nothing perfect. Good about all the trailers . Even like the 17 . Best for me , all is paid for , truck and trailer . Money is getting harder to get , the older I get . Figure out what is important to you and go with it . I also am glad I didn't have to wait so long to get my new trailer . 4 month's for me was long enough . Pat

Forgot Karen the 15 's were great trailers too . Escape was still making them then . Guess I went for the 19 for the big bed and the bath was a great size coming from my little one in my camper . I think I like them all . Pat
