I did reply to your question via the PM, David.

Welcome to the site, and enjoy your decision making process, both for the trailer, and how to outfit it.

I also do not have to worry about finding that replacement vent cover in the 19', it is really an odd dimension.
Jim, do you know if there is a reason Escape would be unable to install the power vent they now use on the 21 in a new 19 during the build?

Other than running the wire for power, the other issue is the round vent on the 21 and on the Casita is mounted on the round portion of the roof vs a flat portion. there may
be a possibility that it can not be mounted on a flush part of the roof. An option is to get the window and skip the vent, have it deleted. With the window and the MaxxFann and the vented door, you should have plenty of air movement.

I've seen some people have asked for a upgrade on their Maxxfan what is the main reason for upgrade on the standard Maxxfan supplied?

On my 19' I removed and ordered the smoke lens cover from the MaxxFann factory which allows a lot more daylight and moonlight over the opaque stock cover. The upgrade at Escape gives this cover plus a remote control for operation. You still have the controls on the unit with the added luxury of a remote and the smoke lens.

I believe it is to do with clearance, the height of the shower stall compared to the height of the trailer where the shower is. The power vent can't be installed in the 15, 17, and 19 but can be installed in the 5.0 (even though the 5.0 uses the same shower stall as the 19) and 21.

Reace said it would require a mould change for the 19' - but I don't know if he meant the shower mould or the roof mould.

This is my question a while ago to Kim, plus her answer:

Is there an option to upgrade bathroom fan to some sort of Maxx fan? No, due to the slope of the trailer in that area.

It does? I can understand the 5.0 using the same as the 19'... they're basically in the same position. But the new 21' it's forward of the door.

19': Bathroom Size 40"L x 27"w x 72”h
5.0 (classic build): Bathroom 40” x 27” x 72”
21': Bathroom Size 48"L x31"w x 72”h

That's why I put it in brackets. The 5.0 and the 19 use the same shower the 21's is different. My 5.0's shower has a wheel well molded into it even though there is no wheel behind it 'cause the same shower is used in the 19 where there is a wheel behind it.
