You'll know when you see them in person. I couldn't decide between the 15 (no longer made) and the 17. I must have spent at least an hour in the two models up in Chilliwack, flipping back and forth, and even asked Tammy to put the front table down in the 15 so I could try it as a bed. I took my time but made the right decision. Again, you'll know.

Welcome to the forum and to the Escape community.

Do visit both. The added width of the 21 makes a huge difference.

Thanks. It's really nice to see all the feedback. I'm really looking forward to going down to Chilliwack and seeing them both side by side. Do they have the basic models of the without all the options so that you can compare? Or is it just looking at ones that are in the process of being completed? I'd also like to see options and we are definitely adding things but would be nice to see what the base model is. Unfortunately we won't be in Chilliwack for a couple of months.

ETI is so busy, I don't think build spec trailers any longer. Everything on the lot is a customer order. But, there's enough differences between standard upholstery to custom upholstery, etc. that you'd be able to see what would work best for you. Too, some of the options are "hidden," like the inverter and battery packs. You'll be looking mainly at the layout, overall size, etc. Best of luck in your decision!

You can probably find a few there that are "stock" or close to stock. Also, they usually have at least one show model up front for each size, and those are either stock or very close to it.

When we visited ETI last fall, they had the 4 larger trailers lined up across from the office and the 15 in front of the office. The 19 and 21 were side by side and we were back and forth comparing. I would have hated to make a decision on which to order without being able to have been in them. And they are kind of scarce here in the Midwest. Also when we were to the Casita plant, we wanted to see their 13' but they did not have one available anywhere. If you are able to see the different trailers and compare them, you will know what is going to work for you. Loren

That's great. Thanks for the info. I also agree that once we see them in person, we'll know for sure.
