Has anyone same-graded? Another 17' after a 17'? Another 19' after a 19'?
Considering that the oldest Escapes on the road are barely a decade old, I can't see why anyone would have traded it in for one of the same size. These things last.

I can see trading between the two floor plans of the 17' (or of the 15'), if someone changed their mind about wanting a bathroom in the trailer.

I bought a 17b because I am single and for me and my dog it seemed big enough. I am looking to travel simply just hitch up and go - when ever I get the chance. Some day when I am retired I may want to travel more and want a bigger trailer or maybe the 17 will be perfect. But with the strong re sale value I can trade it in for a bigger trailer if I want. I looked at other trailers too but kept coming back to the Escape what ever size I ultimately end up with it will be an Escape.

Trading for the same size, you get all of the upgrades ETI has added over several years and all of the options and custom work you want that you did not get the first time. People new to trailering might not have known what they would use or want. All new parts and appliances, of course, as well, would be nice. Also in the event of a total loss, insurance would cover replacement with a new trailer of the year of loss, not just value of the old one.

Of course, most people want bigger for the bigger family or needed more space in the first one.

We never know if we might walk into a 21' and just have to have it. Or would get one as DD says because we can.

"Because we can."

Sounds like a perfectly acceptable reason to me.
