Hi - re dual solar, one panel in back and reace says he will fit second panel in the mid to front area, i will leave it to him to figure out. Larger tanks are in comparison to the original 5.0sa holding tanks, much larger counter area by having 2 burner stove sideways. We also put in the 1500w inverter as we dry camp a lot where possible and want to keep our appliance options open. Wife also chose a different formica to make it look different than original 5.0sa. Also putting the chrome wheels on and the led light strip plus having eti install 3 motion security lights, we like them because of our dry camping locations. We also moved micro to above sink area. Putting the solar controller above dinette easier to read, also installi g reading lights in dinette.

once again i reiterate how important it is to choose options wisely.

Just weighed our 21 today on a scale - 3800 lbs fully loaded with all our stuff and half full black/gray tanks at the axles, probably 400 or so at the tongue.

Could be noted for the weight that you two have spray foam insulation. And added insulation and thermal windows, and A/C, right? And how many reinforced walls, and oven or not.
Bikes?

I was expecting we would be where you are on weight but maybe a little less with only one reinforced wall and no oven.

My tanks were about 1/3 full and I also carry too much "stuff". upon arrival home after getting weighed I started eliminating things I do not need to try and 'slim" down somewhat. Also we had a lot of items for 3 those weeks that we do not carry for a week or less. My goal is around
3600 and 400.

Thank you all for your responses, suggestions and recommendations. I will take everything into consideration if and when I decide to place my order for the Escape 5.0TA.
