Ordered! The good news and the bad news

Done! After touring the ETI factory and other RV dealers, we ended up on a long case of undecidedness between the 19 and the 21 (loved the 5.0 but need the truck top for the canoe and some gear in the bed). Back and forth we went, but when the dust settled the 19 won out as we can live with a bit less counter and storage space but really wanted the queen size bed. The bad news is we are 55 weeks away from picking it up. I suppose the time it takes us to decide we will need until the beginning of June to settle on our options!

And now onto figuring out a tow vehicle!

The 19 comes standard with a queen bed - 60" x 80".

Sorry, I thought you said you got a 21 and I meant a queen bed like a 19'. Tried to delete but you were too quick!

We will be waiting along with you; our Escape 19 is scheduled to be ready Aug 16, 2017. I am also looking for a tow vehicle and right now it's pretty much between the Colorado diesel or the F-150 2.7L EB. I know either one would be a great choice, so just have to figure out which one would be a better fit for me. Same thing with the trailer. Lot's of good advice available on this forum to help you figure out which options you might may to add or not. Welcome to the forum.

We have the Ford F 150, 2.7 Econboost which we love! Great mileage without towing ( 23.7 mpg). Picking up our 21 next Tuesday so no idea on how the mileage with be then. We have the 4 door version and love all the space it has over the Colorado 4 door. It has a flat floor with the rear seat up, the Colorado does not

Deciding ? 19/21

WE looked at the older 5.0 single axle .We didn't get that took to long to decide on truck and what kind of hitch .Loss number 1
Then we waited top long and didn't get in to buy the 2016 models .So when 4/1/2016 came along we ordered the 21. we liked the bigger counter space the wider trailer and more storage then the 19.Although I did like the bed on the 19 .I really wanted the new 5.0TA but my wife won out with 21
pro 21
more storage ,wider ,batteries inside ,bigger bathroom,window over sink,extra rear lights,a bed you don't have to crawl over each other , and for about $US 1000-1200 more is worth the extra money IMHO and only 400-500lb difference. Jim

I see ETI is now at a 13 month +/- wait time, does anyone know if they ever realized much of the production capacity increase they were hoping for this year?

CORRECTION : our production date is 9/6/17 - still almost 13 months and a long wait.
