As to the original topic: I take it nobody knows of a 17A available for viewing, or of pictures?

Looking at available images and posts, I get the impression that the A-variant of the 17 is pretty rare. I guess most people who pass on a bathroom go for the 15A.

It really is a process -- not only are we taking up trailer life again, but we're getting ready to sell the second home that we bought when number five child was born and we put our trailer on cinder blocks. As beautiful as it is, it started to feel like a ball and chain -- more responsibility, less traveling --more possessions!! I am a minimalist who told my mother I'd never be a slave to my material possessions and here I am with TWO houses and all that goes with them. But I've needed to take the time to make sure that the trailer and the options we select will be right for us.

Trailer: 21 ft November 17th

Doug , obviously just our opinions but, we never really considered a 17 ft, we were able to view a 19 ft in our area and once we saw it we were happy that it was the one. However when we were picking up our 19 ft at the factory we looked through all of the models there, I believe there were both the 17 ft models and although they do have some really nice points we were very happy with our choice, the same feeling for the 5.0, the lack of space above ones head while sleeping just doesn't work for me. I found the 17 ft tight and not open enough for me. Its interesting that I am less clausrophobic in our 19 than in our old 25 ft trailer.

If you have seen a 17', I wouldn't worry about seeing a 19' and ordering one sight unseen, assuming the TV is no problem. Many have done just that, in fact, some never even saw an Escape beforehand.

If you have seen a 19', however, I would not go the other way and order a 17' without seeing it. I would say that you would need to see if the 17' is big enough for you.

Seeing a 5.0, of course, is another deal altogether.

One of the main considerations on the 19' for many is the tandem axle which allows you to go down the road miles from where you might have a tire blow out to have it fixed in a safer place. Others don't want to pay for the upkeep of more wheels or tires.
