WANTED: Escape 21 or 19 with flipped floor plan

Looking for an Escape 19 with the flipped floor plan (dinette in back), or an Escape 21, with a factory installed air conditioner. If it's a 19 with a flipped floor plan, 2 dinettes instead of a permanent bed is fine and dandy.

*crossing fingers and hoping*

Best of luck in your search. I've studied the sold archives back to 2011 to gauge pricing and have never seen a flipped 19 come up for sale. I wonder how many Escape has even made?

If you really, really wanted a flipped 19 layout it would be very easy for a person with minimum skills to do it themselves. The frame work is just held together with screws. Shown is a photo of the bed area when I was iinstalling my IKEA slatted bed base. As Rubicon says, flipped 19's seem to be fairly rare. You open up a much larger pool of available trailers by not limiting yourself to a ready made one.

Yep, it'd be much easier to find a regular 19 and then just modify it yourself.

It looks like I may wind up with a standard 19 and will have to pay someone to do the conversion. I'm afraid I'm decrepit before my time and can no longer do all of the nifty tinkering I used to enjoy.

Also, I've been looking at used Bigfoot trailers and their 17.5 in the gaucho configuration would also fit the bill. I guess it's all going to depend on what crops up that's in good condition and not above my price range.

I'm in the middle of planning my build. Can I ask why you are looking for the flipped plan? Interested.

I think that's there's a middle ground. The largest work item is getting the mattress out. After that, the plywood base comes out in manageable pieces.

After that the wood pieces are small and lightweight.

Rather than hire an RV person to do the whole conversion it might be much more economical to hire some "labor" for the items that you can't deal with.

The big plus is that the flooring already installed in that area.

Not the original poster but for me it would be because I want the full dinette in the back for the view out. The smaller bed up front wouldn't bother me as a solo.

Same here. As a couple though, no way we'd give up the queen bed.
