21 lift kit option

I received this from Escape about a lift kit for the 21.
The standard height for a 21’ Escape Trailer is 19”. We can add a lift kit to the trailer for you for $300, which would increase the trailer height to 21 ½”, 2 ½” higher.
Do any other 21 owners have this option (pics would be great) or do most feel it to be unnecessary? Is the stock height adequate?
Thanks, Kevin

I'm not aware of any 21' with the lift option but you would have to definitely get a second step as some find the stock step very high. I have had no issues towing at the stock height, have you given any thought to the impact it may have on towing other than the step??

Jim Thanks, yes I have thought of those things. I am not locked in on this option. Just doing my homework. I am just trying to be thorough. I value the opinions and comments received from this forum. Thanks, Kevin

Yes, I have that option set for my 19 build. Also $300. Also debating whether I really need this. I do plan a lot of boondocking.

Jeff, I see your trailer ready date is March 21st. Ours is March 15th. I think Craig in Petaluma is picking up a 21 with the lift option this month. Maybe he can post a pic of the trailer and give us his thoughts.
