Smile wanting to Order a new Escape 19

Hi All.

I need advice,

To keep my rig that I want to order desirable, would it be a good idea to order an Oven and A/C just in case my mother and I want to jump up to the 21 in short order, like within a year or 2?

What features do you guys recommend in the community for resale if need be? And do you guys like the layout as much as I do more so than the 21 so far?

And by the way, whom is dry camping with a 3000 Watt Honda EU3000 Gen?

Thanks All,

Randall!

Can I give you a suggestion Randall? Compare the price of the 19 and the 21, add for both the options you would like to get, and see what the difference is. You might be surprised with the outcome! (some options on the 19 are standard for the 21)
But yes, you have to like the layout. That's why we have a 19.

That's great advice.

I want no options not need any

I do like the double door fridge in the 21

Not so crazy about the 21's bed next to the washroom though

I do like the larger size overall for $1500

And the new moulds for 2017

Marry this is good advice

I have a duramax so the extra weight is a non concern ))

The only thing I'd think about if I were considering resale, would be the A/C. I know I'd not buy a trailer without it although some do.

A 3000i might be overkill for these trailers. Unless you need to run the A/C you may get away with solar and no generator.

I agree on the resale side, but is there a heat strip in your dometic factory air? and is it a Penguin? Low pro?

This is true.

Where I live, set aside resale, it is so cool at night.......no need for AC ever even in the heat of summer!

Nope. Ours is parked In our yard.
Would you be interested, you are welcome to have a look. (It's not the new style, but the inside is pretty much the same)

Or give ETI a call. They can give you contact info of owners in your area who are willing to show you their trailer.

From a resale point of view, all options will go at a discount to what you paid for them. So I would get the options YOU want, rather than what some unknown possible buyer might want.

Now here in the SE USA, A/C is a must. But in your area, probably not.

One of the advantages of buying used is getting a discount on the options, assuming you wanted them. The trailers themselves hold their value tremendously well.

Sure, there will be some people that would not buy a trailer without A/C, but it really depends on your location.

Oven to me is a non-starter. It costs you money, you lose cupboard space, I would give a used trailer with one zero additional value.

Now the front box? That is a winner. Still not sure you would get every single dollar out of it.
