Reminds me of an escape 21

https://www.airstream.com/travel-tra...ravel-trailer/

This layout caught my eye as being familiar (The 19cb). Then i realized its a flipped Escape 21 essentially. The MSRP is over twice the price of the Escape, and since Thor owns Airstream, i doubt its built well enough to justify the price.

I agree it does look kinda like a flipped Escape 21. Let's see: The Airstream has a smaller bed, smaller dinette, smaller tanks, weighs more, and cost twice as much. I think I made the right choice in order the Escape 21 (Not that I could have afforded the Airstream anyway). I do think Airstreams are cool trailers, but I think Escape's are cooler.

Interesting. Clever multi-position use of bathroom door. More room by the bed or more room in the bathroom.

What's with the bathroom sink? Do you reach over the toilet or exit the bathroom and to use it?

I do like the rear hatch though. It's been done obviously on some fiberglass trailers - like the HC1. It would be cool to see on a 21 or a 5.0TA to have a hatch off the rear dinette. Just dreaming...

I don't see any counter space.

You're right, less counter space than the 21 - more along the lines of the 19. The slideout microwave is interesting though.

Yes, I agree. There are only a limited number of ways to arrange the elements of an RV in the narrow space available. Putting the bath in one corner and the bed beside it in this orientation has been common for decades, but most commonly appears in the rear of small motorhomes.

The Bigfoot 25B21RB (21' Rear Bedroom) has the same arrangement.

Thor has owned Airstream since 1980. If Thor is death to quality in RVs as many suggest, that means the last 37 years of Airstream production have been junk. Perhaps true, but that's the majority of Airstreams ever built, and probably the vast majority of Airstreams on the road. You'd think the world would have caught on by now..

I doubt that the quality justifies the price, but the same is true of most "premium" products, including cars.

The amount paid for an Airstream may be far below the manufacturer's suggested price.
