A lot of people say that. I can only say, having had both, that it may not be quite what you think. If you are the person adjoining the bath on the 21', you are tucked away very nicely. If on the driver's side, you are not, however. For that, we have a curtain and it works great if the other party gets up and opens the door.

On the bed by the door, I am wondering how different the measurements are to the headboard area for a 19' and for a 21', measuring to the closest inside back corner of the bed for each from closest point on the door. I would be interested in those measurements out of curiosity. Of course, have to somehow account for going around the divider on the 19'.

All I can tell you is that, since there are no windows at the front in a 21', when in bed with your back there, that seems very private at night compared to being up against a window --- nothing we considered when getting the 21' but have found. That is a privacy point that is similar to what people think of as being tucked away in the 19'. So there is a difference on that whether night or day.

The new 21' with no curtain though changes that situation especially for the driver's side sleeper.

Just our preference Cathy . Not just Escape's , whenever we walked into a trailer with bed there by door really don't care for that layout . Want bed away from door . It all comes down to what we feel comfortable with . There is no right or wrong way . It is what you like . Pat

Yes, I understand your thinking. It was mine before. Liked our 19' and like our 21'.

Our thinking too. With Lisa sleeping in longer than me all the time, she did not like the idea of being near the door, or having a curtain at all. In the 19, if I stayed inside, I used the light above the bench on the drivers side. The whole bath/fridge wall shielded here from that. Plus, my going in and out did not not affect her as much, either with light noise or especially cold air.

This is very true, and almost everyone loves the one they are with.

Other than the bed size and location, if the added weight, size and price (which is not that much) are good by you, the 21 has the best features due to size.

NOW, if Escape had of offered a 21 with the same layout as the 19, or at least one with the bed at the rear, I quite likely would have chosen that over the 5.0.

Wonder why no one ordering a 21 has requested a queen size bed for the rear of the trailer and a small dinette be in the front. Or have they?

Likely due to the mould having the fridge vent where it is thus not allowing it to be moved forward any to allow 60" for the queen bed.

You could install one of those tension rods over the door area (from bathroom to cabinets). It would need to cover 44". That was one of the things I measured and was thinking about when I looked at the new 2017 21' at ETI.
