Question Escape Owner Wanna Be

Hi. My husband and I currently own a TrailManor hard-sided pop-up and love it, however, we are getting along in years and thinking about a change. Have seen the Escape from the outside and looked at the website and are interested. Does anyone know if any of these trailers can be re-configured for a 'walk around' bed? Thanks!

That might be asking a lot from a fibreglass rv... but if you have a look at the new 21 ft , you will see 2 sided access . Having been in the new one , I would say very comfortable access , really nice space , with none of the set up issue of a pop- up type . A beautiful space , really worth looking at .

Hi: cantie... Can't say for sure. Sounds like a ? for the master builder himself. Call Escape 604 703 1650 and ask Reace or Tammy. They can/will do a lot of custom work. Welcome to the forum. Alf

Welcome to our Escape world, Cantie,
As was posted, Escape's newest model, 21' has the closest to a walk around. If you contact the factory they can put you in touch with someone that may have an Escape in your area to inspect. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Thanks Jim. Hard to tell what it will look like as the pictures I saw were all in the building process.

Thanks GABack - you are correct, it's the set-up (especiall when it is raining!) that is getting to us. Also, having to climb over one another for our nightly commutes!

We moved up from a Lees-ure Lite tent trailer to the Escape 19 - chose the 19 because of the queen bed, but do admit that a walk around would be really nice.

Here's another alternative if you want to keep the size of your unit down.
Bed Extension For 17B
