For many (like me), it comes down to a choice between the 19 and 5.0TA, as the 21 is ruled out due to the layout and size of the bed, even though it kinda fits in between the two models.

Others for good reasons, love the 21. I think that, other than the exclusion of the 13 and 15 now, that Escape has a really good variety of trailers to choose from. No one model will be ideal in every way, but the options certainly help to fit the differing styles of everyone looking for a quality moulded fibreglass trailer.

Add on another 2-300 lbs of hitch weight you are now approaching a lot more weight in exchange for space, your choice. Another reason why I went back to a 19 from a 21, if you do not need all that extra space, why bring it. And as Jim B.pointed out, it is nice to have choices, sometimes life does not give you that opportunity.

True story Jim, but if doing a comparison between the 19' and the 5.0TA layout the only thing in common is both have the same size side bath.

And the bed, that lovely big queen sized bed..... that is not front and center, when you enter. (kinda poetic, eh? )

And for me, that is the key. (Oh man, I kill myself with all this rhymin' )

I loved my 19, and hope to love my 5.0TA even more.

I was talking about layout Jim, not features.

I have a 2008 17B in New Meadows which you are welcome to view. And you could PM "smilycook" who has a 2014 17B in Boise.

Linda,
We just returned from Chilliwack with a brand new 19' Escape and you're welcome to come see it. We live in Boise.

The 19' , 21' and 5.0 TA all are great trailers . They all have their individual advantages and non have an issue that is so bad I would rule it out. Cost of the trailer and if my present tow vehicle is capable is a large issue for us. Any of the Escape trailer's would be an improvement over our current trailer and we would be proud to own any model escape.

The Escape that pulls the best is the one that you bought.
