You guys that have ordered the 21' do you have any concerns about the size of the bed. I have tentatively ordered one but have concerns about my wife and I being able to sleep together on it. I wonder how hard it will be to make the bed in the eating area. Your thoughts appreciated.

I can tell you one thing, the table is certainly going to be easier to set up and down than the one in the 19' Escape. I had one of those 21' style table in another trailer, you lift the table off 2 tabs built into the wall and it then swings down and done. With the table in the 19' you had to lift and then hold while someone took the legs off, no more aching back.

It is just six inches narrower than our queen bed at home so I am not worried - we liked the fact that one of us doesn't have to crawl over the other to make those nighttime jaunts to the WC.

12 volt heat pads and insulation

Jim - I noticed you have the insulation as an option - not an add on we had considered as we don't plan to winter camp. We live at 2500 feet and now I am wondering how useful this would be if we do late and early season camping - especially mountain travel. I haven't found a discussion thread about this option. Any thoughts or comments appreciated!

The insulation is the foam spray, underneath that encapsulates the entire floor from front to rear, with spray foam. The 12v heat pads is an add on to keep the tanks from freezing. I'm just getting the spray as I feel it is adequate enough to keep the trailer and tanks warm enough. This option in addition to the extra insulation with thermal windows that will make the entire trailer warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer ( only used the a/c once or twice last year) but camped down to single digits. In addition to temperature, these options also keep your trailer quiet from out side noise when closed up.

Do the @12 volt heaters work while driving? Would you have to be hooked up to shore power? We are newbies so excuse what may seem to be idiotic questions
