I can say with confidence that you will have yourself a long, long wait.

We chose the 21 based on a combination of things the bath being one of them but also the bed and the counter space. When you have 2 bad knees you need extra room (bathroom) and it's hard to climb over or around another person (bed), she can scoot easier with the 21 bed.

Totally agree. That space is precious. Bigger bath = less living space elsewhere. Or, you go with a bigger dimension overall, and now you're back in stickie territory. Escapes fill a nice niche.

I think Escape should skip the 23' and go right to the 25'. There are a whole lot of people out there with much bigger than 25' and that is downsizing to them.

Maybe someone should just make a list of the differences between 19' and 21'.
Okay, here is a start:

Bed size
Bed and dinette position and general layout
Tank sizes --- that is a big consideration often overlooked
Counter space
Bath size
Storage space

Comparing the above should cover it for most people. Of course, you may have to also consider your tow vehicle.

I have seen people say aisle size before. It should be noted that most people can pass each other in a 19'. At least, that is what I think. Without having measured, my impression is that the 21' aisle is wider. Maybe some want to measure those just for comparison.

Aisle size may be OK when you first buy the trailer, but as the trailer ages it may seem to shrink??

Storage Space can also be viewed either way as a negative or positive.
More Space = Too much stuff
More Space = I need more stuff

Less Space = I need more stuff
Less Space = Can't fill what I have

And on and on....
