You will find lots of good reading here.
The search function is your best friend for questions you might have but if you don’t find the answers you want...just ask.
People are always interested in learning how you came across Escape trailers?

I'm sure it won't take all the Escape 19 owners long to tell you what they love about their 19s. We have another great trailer, the Escape 21, which we love. We love the extra room and additional width, which gives us huge amounts of extra storage and don't mind the extra weight. Welcome to our forum and happy researching.

Welcome to our Escape world. It seems I can not make up my mind between the 19 and 21 as I keep going back and forth between owning them....first a 19, then a 21, next a 19 and now a new 21..........)

Don't let Jim kid you. The reality is that he hasn't changed or refilled a propane bottle yet (not sure he knows how simple it is to do; other Pennsylvanians have no trouble with the concept!) When he runs low on propane, he buys a new Escape.

When I first saw his post I was going to post, "you'll soon have 21 owners telling you about the reasons they love the 21 instead of a 19"

And that's the way it is. The 19 and the 21 have totally different interior layouts and each has hard core followers. Folks like me wish they'd make a 21 with a 19 interior.

You'll find a lot of information here, as others have said, just ask about something. You'll get lots of different views. While many have purchased their trailers without actually being in one I'd recommend viewing one or two. If we hadn't we'd have a 17.

We have the 21'. Reason : the bed orientation...can't do the crawl over arrangement ever again ( Casita 17' for 10 years ) . We love the thing. It's HUGE compared to the old Casita.

Another favorite thing that 21 owners like to say is that it's so much easier to skoot down the bed rather than crawl around or over. Personally we've had it both ways, this Class B bed is quite similar to the 21, and we didn't find skooting all that preferable. For us it's all a moot point. If one of us gets up the other usually does also.

Maybe the "Class B" isn't as similar as you think. We've done both arrangements and actually own an Escape 21'. Our experience has NOT been close to what you're are saying. I have to disagree, especially since you're not even comparing an actual Escape 21' here. I also stand by my statement,... it is not irrelevant as you seem to imply.

Not irrelevant at all. We all have our own preferences.

It's just that every time someone asks about a 19 the 21 owners chime in that their bed style is different and that skooting is better then a climb over.

I'm not sure that when someone inquires about a 21 that 19 owners chime in every time and say how great the 19 layout is. It is of course.
