Back in the beginning of the 21' mold build Reese gave the changes from 19' to 21' body.
21' Escape Update
Post #30 says
"Progress on the 21' plug. Tammy and I went up to Vernon to see the progress and go over the cosmetic changes now that the shape is there. You can see in the photo where the 19' has now been lengthened 4" in the rear, 16" in front of the door and 4" wider. At this stage, the flat window sections need to be altered, fridge and bath vent moved and a nice finish applied to get ready for the top mold. "

So, the 21' body is 20" longer and 4" wider than the 19'.

Just looked at the specs on their website, and confirmed this.

I would only have to go with a wider trailer if I was about 6" taller. With my 6'-2.5" height, the bed in the 19' is still long enough for me to stretch out fine.

I am only 6'-0", and ours fits me, my wife, and all my girlfriends just fine.

Total girlfriend count currently stands at zero.

Moving from my 8'x8' tent, the 19'Escape is going to feel like a stadium!

Like Jim alluded to though, the one thing the 21 has, is definitely a feeling of being way bigger. Moving the bathroom to the front really helps with this.

Well, there will at least be two 21's there. I guess we can compare.
