I am 6' tall and would not benefit from raising the dinette floor . The beloved wife is 5'4" tall and does not feel that she has a problem looking out the dinette windows. Have you contacted another Escape 19 owner for a viewing ? I think that the front window heights would be the same for all late 19' models with some variance of ~1/2". To me the raised platform would be just another stumbling point (physical and monetary).
