Re: Escape 19 with U-dinette at rear

So how big is the bed in the modified rear dinette?

Re: Escape 19 with U-dinette at rear

Pretty sure either way it stays a Queen 60x80 overall in that space.

Tammy was able to locate and send me some pictures of unit with a U shaped Dinette in that area. In that version the table was 42 in length + 18in for the rear bench.

She gave me another great idea in a great and long conversation, which was to expand the width of the rear bench to allow for solo sleeping across the rear of the unit and continue to use the front dinette for my main dining/working area. Just have to make the bench wide enough for sleeping comfort and narrow enough to still sit/lounge comfortably in the "U" back there.

I'm thinking 28" would work for the rear bench width. I believe she said the vertical cushions are 4" in thickness leaving about 24 inches for the sleeping berth width. I've done some measuring of my favorite couch which comes in at 21" wide on the cushions where I've spent many nights.

If I go this way I wouldn't have a rear table (or its heavy fitting systems) at all. I would still have the sills on the sides of the U to take a couple of 16 x 32 pieces of plywood (stows easier then a 32x32 table) for when I have extra company over and I have to make up the queen bed.

Its really great working with folks that can customize their product offerings to better meet their customerís needs and are able to speak from their extensive personnel experience with the product regarding what works and what doesn't.

Iím really looking forward to the first days of spring.

Re: Escape 19 with U-dinette at rear

Just to follow up and close off this topic by thanking the forum members during my design deliberations.. I became an escapee April 10, proud owner of my brand new beautiful 19.

Tammy, Reese and their team modified the "queen bed" area as I was talking about in my last post. Seating all around the U shaped area similar to the 19.5 except for the extra elbow room of the 19 in that area. Don't have or need the table cluttering up the space. They installed two additional folding counter top extensions on either side to create a spot for my milk and cookies or what ever else I'm enjoying when Im resting back there

I sleep across the back bench surrounded by the three big windows and I been doing that from the day I picked it up. Very comfortable. I'll try to post some pix as soon as I get near my laptop again (posting from the iPad on the road). Will post the first camping trip details in the appropriate section.

Burloak, I am really jealous of that U-shaped area you have. I"ll bet you like it a lot. Looking for those photos.
