21' Overall Width

Escape's website indicates the 21' overall width is 7' 4":
Does anybody know if that includes the awning?
If not what is the overall width including the awning?
Lastly what is the height from the ground to the "meat" of the awning? (the part that's rolled up at the top?)
Thank you

Since the awning is on the top part of the curved body, it does not add any width, but the awning supports do add another 6". If the clearance is that tight, I'd try somewhere else.

I have just taken some measurements.

91 inches to the "meat" (roller) of the awning (from the ground).
41 inches from the ground to the widest point of the trailer including the awning -- this is the outermost curve of the curved awning support. At this point, the addition to the website's stated width is about 5 inches. The "meat" of the awning is the next-widest point, but it's not as wide as the awning arms at 41" elevation.

The 7' 4" width doesn't include the awning at all, and is at the belly-band. So the width with the awning and its arms is about 7' 9".

We have a tight squeeze where we park Toto, so I had to ask ETI this question last year when setting up Toto's parking pad.

Excellent, thank you for the information. What is the height to the top of the awning?

The area I've been preparing is going to be tight through the gate but based on your info looks like it'll fit with my backup skills being the ultimate determining factor. I'm OK taking it slow which will surely take me a while to get Olaf backed in the first few times.

Thanks again.

93 1/2 inches to the top of the rolled-up awning.

I can relate to your tight-parking challenges. My challenge is the same as yours -- the gate is the narrow spot. As you say, patience, and the willingness to keep trying until you're in safely, are the keys.

That does look "snug", especially the clearance around the downspout. What is the inside width of your gate opening?

Also would you mind measuring the outside track width of the tires? Roughly outside sidewall to sidewall would be great.

An advantage I have is I can adjust the final grade of my area as it is all dirt right now. Once I get the trailer home and parked I'll decide what level I want/need the area to be to give me adequate clearance around my gutter & downspout. It should fit as is right now and will ultimately gravel the area but want to wait till I get the trailer home to figure out final grade.

Usable opening width of our gate: 127" (10 feet 7 inches). Toto's outside track: 83" (6 feet 11 inches). Stomach acid produced by presence of looming rain gutter: unlimited.

Thank you. Kudos on your backing skills! My gate opening is 124" but look to have more clearance around my gutter. We'll see!!

I am advised by ETI that on the 2017 21'... it isn't any wider, overall, but it is more square, so it is wider than before at the top.

They'll post photos in about a month-ish of the 2017 21'
