It's been mentioned before Jeff. A 21 footer with the same layout as the 19 but with the dinette and bed reversed. To me that'd be an ideal layout -- not that we don't love our 19.

The pics pretty much confirmed previous impression..the additional space of the 21 vs 19 is nice, but the front layout of a 21 ain't for this camper...that whole black tank-shower- black tank plumbing is a mess both inside and underneath the trailer in this camper's opinion compared to the same stuff on a 19. And yes all this mess was required on the 21 based on the desire to have a different bed orientation for some in a 21.
If they made a 21 with the same plumbing and bathroom location as a 19 and the front bed sideways, would probably be very interested in a 21.....after all some people pay Escape to switch the locations on a 19 dinette/bed to do just that. Not sure if there are any other complications with such a layout on a 21 that might prevent it, but just a layout preference. It seems from a mfg standpoint it would be easier as the location of all the tanks and plumbing would be similar and all more located nearer to the axles, which one might assume you want the weight of this stuff.
Perhaps someday Escape will offer such a 21 trailer.
They do have one identical to 19 with the bed in front, the 5.0 TA.....

With every year and model, the improvements just keep coming and I guess you would have to trade every year to keep current. Anyway, a standing round of applause to Laura for all of her hard work and time. Loren

yes...I know of several people who had the exact same opinion with regard to the 21, they either bought the 19 or another mfg.
Keep thinking though that now with the raised dinette in the 21 it presents Escape with an opportunity to do this optional layout. Doubt this camper's opinion means much to Escape but perhaps with increased production an alternate 21 layout could now be feasible.
And yes as it is now, it's either a 19 for 2017 delivery or another trailer mfg .

I dunno. When I was coming back home I saw, going the other direction, a full size truck (dually maybe) pulling one of those big ass 5th wheels with 2 canoes/kayaks on the roof of their truck, plus something else.

Some months back I read a discussion from this forum from when ETI was coming out with the new 21' trailer. There were 2 different floor plans presented and for reasons I don't know/remember, they went with the current design. The layout they didn't use might have been similar to what you were commenting on in other posts to this thread. I think the bed was across the back.

The table has a black screw knob which can be seen underneath that when unscrews releases the table to slide. Appears the water pump is now attached to the side wall, much better for sound and vibration purposes. The black pipe would appear to be the gray tank vent, based upon it's location. The black tank is under the bed against the front wall into the bath area.
I'm so glad folks like you look at these photos and comment on the differences/changes, as I sure don't know all of 'em.

Yeah, when looking at the photos of under the table, I figured out that knob was for loosening it up, but I guess I didn't fiddle with it enough when I was inside the trailer. I didn't want the dang thing to fall off and then I'd be banned from looking at any more of their trailers.

What kind of shelf dividers are you talking about, Jim? Thanks

Remember, I didn't include the hinge thingies in my measurements, which are on both sides of the cabinet, so they cut into the space quite a bit. And those would not be on the cabinet if you're getting a microwave since they don't put a door on it. Now we know why - their microwave wouldn't fit otherwise.

I see someone's already answered with OJ. However, when I looked at it I was thinking you could shove your beer or soda cans in there and quickly cool them off. Not that I drink either of those, but I do drink OJ.
