But how skinny are you guys with those beds?

I heard he was going to cut 48 inches out of the middle so it would be easier to fit into campsites.

The dinette in the 21' is only 49" deep. Putting the bed there would make it only a 3/4, not even a double (although plenty long, 86"). Making that space bigger would require moving the refrigerator, that's pretty major surgery. Small trailers are all about compromise. I like the balance ETI has accomplished in this model. The 5.0 TA is how they have chosen to provide a queen bed. Another compromise ...

ETI did ask for comments at one time concerning a rear bed model:

21' Floor plan with rear bed

I'm wondering if at some point they will build one, or offer it to be built. He mentioned it would take a different set of fiberglass molds...

Just received a pleasant surprise in the mail. Earlier this year I showed my Escape to a prospective owner and forum member here, known as Seamstress. She has not made up her mind as to which Escape she wants- 19 or 21 or 5th. But as her name implies, she is a seamstress and she sent me a little present for BlackJack- a custom hotplate- it is too pretty so I'm hanging it up someplace. Thanks again, Seamstress...

Who knows, in a few years after I retire, and review my vehicles too.

I was thinking that there was little compromise with the 5.0T, but then realized I would have to give up my SUV. Life is all about compromises, eh?
