If it is to happen for sure, news would come from Escape. I have not seen a layout design but they my be withholding that for a while. It will take some time to get the design, engineering and planning done, let alone deal with building a mould.

Someone had mentioned talk of a walk around queen and a dry bath. This would mean a wider trailer and likely less storage, but only the true plans will tell.

I certainly would not be holding out on it myself.

I emailed Escape asking if they would ever make a dry bath in a 5.0. They said probably not,
A 2020 23 foot dry bath was in the works . Thanks for chiming in. Jeff

The problem with dry baths is the space they use up. Not so critical in a huge RV, but an issue in the smaller trailers.

It will be very interesting to see what they come up with as a layout in the 23, and whether it is well accepted by customers. I hope it is good.

I have no desire for a walk-around queen nor a dry bath. What I want is comfortable seating.

A person can spend a lifetime waiting for the perfect trailer at the very best price point. What you give up is the chance to make memories every chance you get. We only get so many opportunities, don't waste them by waiting and waiting and waiting....

I agree, Donna. I don’t find the dinette seats all that comfortable. Sometimes I think I would like a smaller 2 person dining area with swiveling chairs like some Casita models.

I swapped out the seat cushions in the dinette to one meant for furniture and it makes a huge difference, I found the original too soft. A smaller dinette just wouldn't work for us, as we often have company for supper and games. As well, it makes a great spare bed. We tend to be social campers most of the time.

I am not sure that the 23 ft Escape will be large enough to suit my needs. I am holding out for the 32 ft with separate bedroom and master bath with a jetted tub!
