From what I remember you're using AA miles. I have miles too, but sometimes its better to buy the tickets. Did you look at going to LAX then going Allegiant? It is 85 miles from Seattle to Bellingham. But just like its only 100 miles from Manhattan Beach to Del Mar, its a long 100 miles.

If you like to winter camp, the bed in the 21 is warmer. The queen vs double bed size is only 6" but ease of egress is worth it. You can sit on the bed and put your shoes on, something hard to do in the 19. In addition with the rear dinette, it is all about the view!! But this is your personal choice, mine maybe different.

After comparing both the 19 and 21, that is about how we ended up seeing it. Loren

Having never seen a 21', I'm really hoping the 19' works out well for us (due Nov. 2014). All this talk of the 21' makes me wonder. Ah well, we can always upgrade later!

The 19 is a fantastic trailer, Jaime. Don't listen to the bashing done by others. We have none of the issues of being cold when sleeping, and we have plenty of storage without using the front box. If I want to sit when putting shoes on, there is a dinette right there. Better than using a bed. When we eat, we get a fully unencumbered view, as we are outside almost all the time.

I am one that much prefers the layout of the 19 over the 21, mostly because I like the bed away from the door, and out of the way. After touring the 21, we were very quick to decide that upgrading to it would not be in our future, the new 5.0TA now, that is a different story.

I tend to agree Jim. The only thing that bugs me about the 21 is the bed as soon as you come in the door. But, I don't think anyone's 'bashing' the 19 -- just discussing pros and cons.

You are right, a bad choice of words.

I don't know. I definitely do pick up the feeling that the "little guys" are looked down upon as Escape builds bigger and bigger units (so much for small and lightweight) and buyers say they are "upgrading." I'm just glad there's still a lid for every pot. Or is it pot for every lid?

I always thought upsizing was a better term than upgrading. YMMV

Now, when I traded my old truck for my new truck THAT was upgrading.

Donna's right Karen. It's upsizing - not upgrading. Your 15 is one of the best trailers I've seen.
