We'll be camped at Horseneck Beach in Westport that weekend. You're certainly welcome to stop by.

Anything bigger than a 17, and you're just a big trailer wannabe!

Wow a week earlier and I could have shown you a 2012 19 in your driveway :-) I was on my annual westward migration from the Maritimes to Southern Ontario via 95 > 495 > Mass Pike > Thruway. Overnighted Tuesday at the Walmart Supercenter in Portsmouth and quick stops Wednesday morning on both sides of you (NH Liquor Store ;-) and the Rockingham Mall).

For me the biggest benefit of the 19 (and now also the new 21) is the interior height. Check those specifications carefully. Those extra 3 inches make a huge comfort difference if your tall (I'm 6'2").

Thank you. We would love to stop by if you tell us which day, Sat. or Sun. is more convenient for you and what time. I was only at Horseneck once and that was 45 years ago. I don't think they had camping there then.

Sorry we missed you, Burloak. The NH Liquor Store is only 20 minutes away, so it would've been easy. Hope you had a good trip home. Thanks for reminding us to be careful on the specs! I'm short but claustrophobic and hubby is 6'

I've heard THAT before! Guess we have two-foot-itis like a lot of other folks.

We just moved up to a 19' after 6 years in a Casita 17'. It's more then two-foot itis. It's the added width, added height, a queen size bed, a front box, a permanent dinette, a larger kitchen, and I could keep going but all this for almost the same weight as the 17' Casita. Just double the price but hey, life is short enjoy it!

Just wait until you see an Escape 21' kitchen, it is bigger than the one in my house!! When does your 19' hatch?
