Welcome, Laura!

You are close enough to the factory in Chilliwack to go see which bathroom might suit you. You would no doubt be very glad to have the bathroom, from what you have said, which rules out many egg trailers. The 19' and 21' models are very different and it usually comes down to personal preference on the size of the beds and baths.

As for the TV, you can probably have them put it where you want, in the dinette or wherever, but that might depend on the model.

Regarding the television, I have a small TV on a pedestal mount that I sit on my dinette table. When I'm towing I lay it on the bed. But then, I have my own antenna and route the cable through the power cable hatch. It's not pretty, but it works.

You'll never get me in there to take a shower. Even phone booths were bigger.

And that is another great thing about the Escape Forum. I am not really as cool as everyone thinks I am.

Hey, being half as cool as people think I am is still well above average coolness.

Hi Lara,

We will be getting our Escape this Fall and we almost purchased a 2015 R-Pod. I liked the new floor plan with the kitchen in the rear and the slide out dinette. But, once we looked at an Escape we were sold! The quality was obviously better than our original choice. We like that we have options to customize the trailer--including fabric and where we want to add electrical plugs, etc. My husband wanted a light weight trailer, and the fiberglass has no seams. Currently we have a tent trailer and have had problems with the water leaking through the seams. The Escape is quality and its resale value is astounding. We discovered that we wanted to purchase a used trailer and there are several R-Pods around and others, but it was difficult to find an Escape.

Once you see them you'll know.

Which is why anyone considering an Escape among other brands should see an Escape in person before deciding.

After driving the Jayco I have absolutely NO interest in getting a motor home or even a Class B van. I watched a couple next to me in Coos Bay and they had to completely unhook and stow their stuff when they wanted to sightsee with their Class B. Nope, not for me.
