We are loving living in the "wild", Cathy! It's a lot more fun than I ever dreamed it would be, and so is retirement! We can get up anytime we want and go anywhere we want whenever we want! Who could ask for more (except for a little more room!)
We can hardly wait to order ours, we've already started developing our wishlist! Can't wait for January so that we can put our name on the list!

Dora, I know the feeling having migrated from a 17LD to an Escape 21. The difference is amazing - not only in the added length & storage but the added width over the Casita (and the 19 Escape.) Although it's just 6 inches, it's enough for two people to pass each other in the aisle and still not step on the dogs (3 terriers.) The wait will definitely be worth it.

I used to wonder what people meant about the 21' aisle. Just for the record, two people can pass each other in the aisle in a 19' and maybe in a 5.0 unless they are really hefty because I am pretty hefty. (Also, the 19' is 4" less.). Don't know if that is the case in other models.

That said, the 21' aisle definitely seems bigger to me, without measuring. I will attribute that to the fact that the bathroom is at the end instead of in the middle. Sure enough, it does mean a noticeable difference in aisle space.

I assume that the aisle of the 21' seems wider than that of the 19' because it actually is wider. It should be wider because the trailer's body is four inches (10 cm) wider, assuming that the cabinets are not that much deeper.

A bathroom in the middle of the trailer (which is a very common location, and used in all bathroom-equipped Escapes other than the 21') does tend become sort of a choke point in the trailer layout.

Not a problem in the 17, because there really isn't anywhere to go.

People do not mean the aisle is wider by the 4", which is only the width of a hand, but more than that. The 19' bath is 40" wide so the bath in a 21' at the front means a big change in the aisle.

How true. There isn't far to go in any of these! Everything is so convenient.

So you're saying the most important part of the difference is at the bathroom choke point? That makes sense to me

The bathroom is across from the door in a 19'. That is not the case in a 21' which has a drawer stack across from the door. The bath is at the front end. Very different. That is one of the reasons we got the 21: You look in the door and see a beautiful stack of drawers. I like those drawers!

Would love to hear about your adventures!

I think Escape is going to have a few calls and e-mails when they come in in January.

Ask all the questions you want. Assume you have seen a 21'.
