bed in the 21 Escape

A little concerned the bed in the 21 not alot of room. Has anyone found it quite an adjustment from a Queen bed at home. We both get so warm,. . We live in Canada. Has anyone felt they did not have enough room, We are 250 pounds and 160 pounds. This is probably abit of a dumb question, but is waying on our decision to weather to go for the 21. Escacpe. We love the trailer and are so on the fence with this. Thanks.

I would not let the size of the bed be the road block in your decision process
We find. the bed in the 21 to be quite comfortable
At least we haven’t lost any sleep over it

The larger queen bed in the 19 has the climb over issue, whereas the 21 bed does not.

We didn't go with a 21 due to the bed size. Got lucky when ETI built the 5.0TA with a full queen not long after the 21 came out. It is of course a big change going from a trailer to a fifth wheel, it's not for everyone.

i'm 230 lbs 6' tall, my wife is 200+ (won't tell me, which makes planning weights difficult) and 5'2, and we both fit fine on the 21's bed. I'm on the street side, and get out of bed by skinnying down along the wall, while she's on the curb/bath side ... i tend to drink more beer than she does, so I'm doing more middle-of-the-night bathroom runs.

Jimmy Dean sang the song. Kinda wide at the shoulders and narra at the hip. He wasn’t describing me. It’s kinda broad at the shoulders and lots broader at the hip. We have no problems with the 21 bed. It would be nice if you could at least lay on the beds at a rally and get an idea.

We have a queen at home, and do not find there is much of a difference at all. In fact, we bought the same pillows that we have at home and it's just like sleeping in our own bed! We did get the extra insulation as noise usually keeps us awake and it's pretty quiet inside, even when we had some partiers beside us. I believe the bed in the 21 is as long as a queen, so at 6' tall, you shouldn't have a problem with the length. You also have the opening window beside the bed, so whoever is sleeping on the driver side of the trailer can open it. There's also the option of A/C, but the max fan does a pretty good job as well. If you are considering the 21, and being in Campbell River, it would definitely be worth the weekend trip over to check them out at Escape. You would likely be able to see the 19 and 5.0 as well to compare.
