Escape 19 vs Escape 21

I'd like to see the weight numbers before making up my mind. I have learned a lot from my 19' and there are some options I'd not repeat. But that aisle space and counter space, I'm drooling over.

Donna , what I was thinking was I wonder if it would be possible to have a queen bed sideways in the front as it is in the rear of the 19 and then have the bathroom down the side like the 19. I wonder if there is enough room between the front of the trailer and the door for this.

Ditto to Dave, we really like the idea of rear bed like in the 19, now if only there could be a rear queen in the 21, we'd probably wait another year to save up for the more pricy trailer and likely slightly more powerful tug. Or I like Jim B.'s idea of the 5.1

Jim,

With a 19 getting ready to be built I'd sure like to hear what you have learned about the options and what you would not repeat.

Thanks

Dave

I can't speak for Jim but here is what I would change, I would get the table that hooks to the wall not the pedestal version as it would alow better use of space un the table when folded down. I would not get the range hood as the max fan is close by and does a better job of venting and is quieter. I would get the batteries mounted inside the trailer and not in the storage box. The space inside the trailer under awning side bench is awkward to access and more space in the storage box would be nice. I wouldn't bother with heat pads on the tanks and I wouldn't get the heat strip in the ac unit again.

Everyone will have different needs, dependant upon there camping styles. For instance, I agree with all Dave's decisions, with the exception of the table support. We really like the pedistals, and the ease of use. The sliding table is a bonus too. But the batteries inside, no range hood, not heat strip in the A/C (easy to carry a small electric heater).

About the only other thing I did that I would not now, is to have a stereo installed. While it works great, I much prefer the flexibility of the many portable solutions, that can be used elsewhere too. I have 7,000 songs on my phone, and find I mostly use it, either via bluetooth, or directly through a cable.

Many don't use the low pressure quick connect, but I love ours and am planning to do a second one.

This is indeed an amazing feat. We love our 19 so much that I can't imagine wanting anything else, but for those of you who love the idea of more space, this will surely fit the bill nicely! Tammy and Reace, you are phenomenal. As so many have said, and I know we all agree, the way you listen to people and make things work with these high quality campers is just so special. I hope you feel all this admiration and love... We are looking forward to one of these big guys coming to the eastern US so we can catch a glimpse!
Have a wonderful break at the rally. We'll be thinking of you all and wishing we were there.
- Jenny

The reason I would put the batteries inside is that the dinette seat storage are on the awing side is kind of wasted space as its hard to reach the back through the little door and the batteries take up a fair bit of room in the storage box that is easy to access.
