Dimension of the bed in Escape 19

Hi

I'am in the precess of thinking i'll have to bite the bullet soon but still have a question.

Whent to visit the inside on an 19' Escape this morning of an happy owner this morning. On thing surprise me and my wife was the size of the bed. Since his trailer was in storage and from a good distance from our home I,M asking for help.

From what I know from the literature, it is a queen bed (60 inch wide).

From what I've seen it look rather small. Did not have my tape with me.

Is it just an illusion? I've notice some space around the mattress.

Can someone please give me the exact measurement on the mattress and the measurement front the cavity where the mattress sit-in.

Thanks

60" by 80" queen sheets fit, not full sheets. Space around the edge gives you room to tuck the sheets in. On our Casita we had a foam mattress made that was exactly the size of the opening. There was no room for fingers to tuck in sheets.

Thanks for the quick reply.

So the mattress is a reel queen size and there is extra space...

So the area is a little bigger by, from what I've seen, an good inch around.

It's a proper queen size bed with the rear two corners rounded off. (custom mattress) that said, a normal queen size mattress will fit too, just with the two corner squeeshed a little but not a difficult fit. I noticed this because once I push the mattress in backward and the two rounded corner is very visible by the fridge/kitchen wall. The queen sheets will fit fine. It might look smaller because it's enclosed space.

On the escape trailer website under the 19 there is a link to a schematic giving all kinds of measurements and the locations of outlets etc.

What they said...but I did take the tape out and the actual space wall to wall is 60.25 inches wide by 80 inches long. We love every inch of it and that is why we purchased a 19.

You will appreciate that 1" air space in the winter, it will help keep your mattress from the cold walls which can cause condensation if not careful.

This is an IKEA queen size slatted bed base. Except for the rounded corners it easily fits the space.

Good Call Ron! Best of both worlds! More comfort, and air flow around and under the mattress
