Thinking about a 19 foot

Greetings from Ashland, Oregon. We have a 17 foot Casita and are seriously considering moving to the 19 foot Escape. We do most of our camping in the Oregon State Parks on the Coast and some off the grid National Park and Forest Service campgrounds.


Will be looking into the possibility. If you have any perspectives to share, I'd greatly appreciate it... particularly what you like best about the 19. We take about 10 trips a year (this year a couple of long distance). My tow vehicle is one of the GMC Canyon diesels set up for towing.


Thanks! Looking forward to learning more about Escapes and hoping to purchase one.

Art: You might find this thread interesting.
Why Escape -- and not Casita, or Scamp, or something else?

Welcome aboard Art. Our favorite thing about our 19 is the function of the floor plan, with a full 60x80 queen bed tucked away on one end, and a 4 person dinette on the other. Three years in and it's still the perfect fit for us. The towing experience with tandem axles is better too. If you order, be sure to consider the front storage box and the factory solar package as options. We love ours.

Thanks! I'm thinking about the solar options, but we usually camp where there isn't great access to the sun... The idea of not having to change the bed/dinette twice a day is a VERY nice thought!!!

Look at a 21 too, the extra 6 inch aisle space is what made us switch when we had originally targeted a 19 after our Casita. No crawl-over bed sealed the deal (and the huge bathroom.)

The floor plan of the 19 did it for us! Walking in, the dinette on the right and the bed tucked away in the back.
With all the options available, you have the chance to design your Escape to your own needs.

My buddy and his wife and my wife and I have camped together often. He has a 19 and we have a 17B.
Anytime we get together for dinner inside, or to play cards, we end up in his 19 with the four-person dinette.

We planned on getting the 19, but drove to Chilliwack to see all of the trailers. One look at the 21 and we were in the office writing up the order.

Do Tammy and Reace still have those big farting Rotwilers?
