49" Bed

I sold my 16' Casita because it had a 48" bed. My 17' Casita has a 54" bed, which I fine to be very good.

Sorry about that, I punched a button early. The beauty of the 54" bed is that a std. double bed mattress fits right on top. Then you can use fitted sheets. The question is this: Is there any reason why Escape could not build a 54" wide platform? Thanks in advance.

Which model are you asking about where you'd like a double bed?

Donna,
I'm basically talking about upgrading my 17'SD to an Escape 17'B. Primarily for the insulation & such.

Since you need to gain 5", you'd have to do without the refrigerator, and the sink or stove. But, I suppose anything is possible... you know the definitive place to check is with Escape Trailer Industries.

The bed in the 17 is narrower than the 15. You will have to go with the 15 or the 19 to get a comparable bed. Read the specs carefully to be sure you are getting what you want.

Or .. move the fridge to the range area . move the sink to the fridge spot , the stove to the wardrobe area and have a flip up counter on both the sink and stove side ..that would give extra inches for the bed - maybe more at the new fridge location ..

Things don't move that easily. There are wheel wells to consider, and weight to keep the trailer balanced. I seem to recall a thread on designing the new 19 where many of the issues were discussed.

Glenn has it right, then there's water lines and electric wire and fresh water tanks, etc. By time all the changes were made (and I'm not saying they can), the price may exceed a 21'. Remember, there are attachment points for cabinetry that need to be taken into consideration too. It would be FAR cheaper to use both beds.
