Thanks for the info I agree you don't want to make this type of an investment feeling it'll be just ok. I want to love it!!
Also, what is your tow vehicle? I have a 2014 nissan pathfinder
Thanks,
Marion
We went with a GMC Acadia. It helped that we had a couple grand in money off from having a GMC credit card, plus discounts for working for a GMC supplier. The car handled the 19' easily with towing mileage around 15.5 and without towing in the 22-25 mile range on the highway.

What was it about the escape vs casita that made you changed your mind?
We had a brand new Casita for about a year. Just too small in all directions (I'm 6'4"), crawling over each other to get out of bed. We stopped to see Cpaharley's 21' on the way back from Florida. After about two minutes inside and I was thinking "this is what we need...".

Wow I can just visualize you walking around like the hunchman lol.
The 21 you saw is that Ray in Pensacola? He's a couple of hours from me I was thinking about giving him a call.
I know a 21ft is too big for me but a least it'll give me a good idea.
Thanks for the info,
Marion

Actually, Marion, I don't think it will give you a very good idea of what you want. Basically, if you have seen a 15', 17' or 19', you have an excellent idea of what the other two are like. The 21', however, is quite different and photos just do not convey that. You should be able to see one of the others not too far from you if you think those sizes are your interest.

Thanks for the heads up. The closest smaller escape is a 19ft and they live in northern Mississippi and if it's the same couple they'll be in florida in a couple of weeks I need to contact them and see if I can get the tour.
Thank you,
Marion

Hi Cheryl
Sent you an email via your website hope we can get together

Hey Marion. My wife and I just got back from a visit to ETI in Chilliwack. Loved every second of it and We were convinced that the Escape was the right one for us. Very interesting process and the quality is second to none. I have learned a ton of info on this forum from the various experts. Our build sheet for our 21 is due in January for a March 6 completion. I have so many good ideas learned from this forum. Just hope I can pull them all together on the build sheet. We dropped off a Louisians flag fot their wall. A little early, but they have it now. We are going to be the first Louisiana owners, but happy to have a neighbor in Al. Close by. The WhoDat?Cruiser will be here next spring probably time her pickup with the Escape rally in Osoyoos.
