Smile Howdy from Dallas, Texas!

Thank you for adding us to the Escape Group! We retired from Dallas, Texas last year and own a 2014 Casita, 17' that we have been full-timing in, traveling the US and Canada. We got interested in the Escape and are really anxious about ordering a 21' this coming year. We really hate losing our 17' Casita; we absolutely love it, but with full-timing, we need a tad more room! Hope to meet you all on the road!

Met a couple from Crested Butte, CO last month & same story; love the Casita, just need some more elbow room- especially when it's raining. With the exchange rate as it is that should ease your need for any Xanax....just do it!

We started getting cabin fever after about eight days in our 17' EggCamper. We spent almost four weeks returning home from Chilliwack in our Escape 21 and we were still enjoying it. A little extra room can make all the difference.

A lot of people who have looked at our 21 have said that it looks bigger on the inside than on the outside. We think that it has the perfect amount of room. Not knowing which size to order, the best thing that we did was to go to Chilliwack last year and compare all of the sizes. I wonder if Casita will ever build a bigger trailer. Several years ago we went to their factory and looked at their line of trailers also. Not enough headroom and to many stories about popping rivets. Loren

This is so true Loren, and of the other models too. I don't know how many times folks commented on how much room there was in our 19. Even the wee 13 is the same. From the outside it looks like an oversized doghouse, but inside...wow!

I think so too, we're just looking forward to a little more room!

Welcome, DoraM! I am sure you will be very pleased with the set-up in the 21'. The build sheet should be fun. I can only tell you not to turn it in early as there is always more to find out about. Must be something to be fulltiming.

The biggest trailer that Casita builds is still the 17 foot. They are not planning on adding a bigger one. :-(
