New and making decisions!!

Hi,
We are Gary and Nancy residing in Monterey TN.
Have owned a Scamp and currently a 2014 Casita.
We are now exploring an upgrade!
Escape 17'B or 19'.
Look'n at all the options and pros & cons.

There is a ton of info to glean from the forum - how do you like to camp? (now and "down the road"..... Mark and I are used to roughing it, but you may be different - we just finished 2 weeks trying out our 17A - with 100w portable solar. And it snowed one morning! In June!

Thanks for the fast response. We lean toward more minimal camping. But do want a bathroom. What do you pull your 17A with?

The 19 will be a little wider (so it will feel bigger inside) and will have more storage space than the 17. Beyond that it's mostly a matter of which floor plan you prefer.

We had a 19ft Escape for 8 years and lived in it for 4 months each of those years...great storage and towed flawlessly with a Tacoma and no WDH...most of our camping was boondocking...few issues with the trailer and after 7 years the water pump finally did fail...but we had a spare.

we initially wanted a 17 but end up with a 19 because it has a real bed..

Escape will build you a 17 with a permanent bed for a fee. Sort of a mini 19 with smaller bed and table. No oven option though (unlike the 19).

We have a 2017 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 - I think that is why we went with a 17 - call me cautious, I want the truck to last. (Our first new one, ever!)

Hi Gary and Nancy. Maybe give ETI a call to see if there are 17s and 19s in your area for you to view.

Doesn’t 17A come with a permanent bed in the front?
