We just sold our 17 foot Casita because it was too small to take the grand children on a camping trip. We will be picking up our new Escape 19 soon. The 19 looks like the more efficient design and offers greater flexibility with only a small increase in weight.

The jump in weight and over all size does seem to change the type of tow vehicle most people use for these two trailers . Just a thought

Is the Colorado the 5 cyl and do you know what the sticker on the door says it's capacity for towing?

Reference the owners manual for towing specs.

There's even a V8 Colorado, which might have even better towing capacity.

I assumed that the original post was asking if anyone was selling a 17' or 19' Escape, not looking for guidance in selecting between the two models... but I may be mistaken.

I'm not sure a Colorado will tow a 19 Escape, that is why I asked. The more information we have, the better informed response can be given, versus just guessing via assumptions. She maybe at the 3500 # limit with the Colorado.
