Fwiw, you can get a 19 without a bathroom, if you ask. I have one.

You can still get an external shower with water heater, as well.

Different strokes and all.

The extra cabinets, counter top, and window get used constantly. All of my plumbing is inside with the exception of the gray water tank. I' m very happy with my choice to eliminate the bathroom.

Thank you so much for the welcome and your ideas.
I have been following you closely dfandrews! We have a lot of the same ideas and it is so nice to "see" how things are going to look. Oct 2016 is SO far away!
We are very used to a porta-potty, only would use it middle of the night. We always stay in Provincial parks or forestry camps, they always have bathrooms. We will have the hot water tank and outdoor shower. Lots of ideas on using that. It will be an adventure
Just this past weekend at a camp ground we saw a 17B Escape. They were so kind and gave us a tour. Yes, we are glad to have the extra room in the A as the bathroom takes up a lot of space. They only use the bathroom for the middle of the night.
So I think we made a good choice for us. I do love seeing the 19, 21, and the 5.0TA's...and love seeing how they have made so many people happy.
So far we have added and taken away from our "list". I'm sure this list will change a few more times yet.

The space the bathroom takes up has never been an issue with us because we spend most of our time outside our 17b enjoying the outdoors. About the only time the two of us are sharing "cabin space" is when we're sleeping.

When I was younger (?) I could deal with a lot of different "stuff." Like so many folks here on the EscapeForum, I'm a former car camper, truck camper, tent camper... sleeping on the beach rolled up in a blanket camper.

Now I'm older (can't say wiser), but I now have more money... and I-DESERVE-it-camper. I bought a custom built 5.0TA. I'm thrilled with my decision. I remember those early days.. who knows what the future will bring?

(Made my decision, best of luck with yours

The best advice I can give folks wanting to have a custom built trailer (any brand), it's not about your PAST, it's about your future!

Best of luck. Make memories!
