The stock toilet has a lever on the side to operate, whereas the foot pedal takes it's place. Children or standing on one foot may have an issue with the foot whereas others may feel it is more sanitary, personal choice. The fan up grade allows the remote plus there is a smoke lens option that allows more light/moon light. Again personal choice.

As far as the toilet goes, here's my reason... Had the lever style before, when I'd get off the throne I didn't care for bending over the bowl to flush, it's a lot further down the home style. It's really personal preference, the foot flush is working good for us.

Is the escape 17" trailer the smallest model available?

Foot flush: Being able to flush with your foot, instead of leaning over the bowl to flush with the hand lever. That's pretty much it.

The Maxx Fan Upgrade is to the Deluxe model which includes the remote. You can also get the smoked plastic cover instead of the white.

Can't get much smaller than 17 inches... :-)
Thanks to those concerned citizens who helped me find the option list - " old timers disease" I guess

Here we go again...
Due to Airxcel's unfortunate naming system, all Escapes get a "Deluxe" MaxxFan - there is also a "Standard" model, not used by ETI. The upgrade is from a MaxxFan Deluxe (Manual Opening) to a MaxxFan Deluxe (Remote Opening)... plus apparently the smoke rather than white cover (so model 7500K instead of 7000K), although that's just a preference rather than a premium feature.

Yes, both the 13-foot and 15-foot models have been discontinued, so now the smallest is the 17-foot... which also happens to be the original size.

Thank you Brian......

Foot flush. Two reasons: When I rinse the tank I need a third hand to hold the valve open; and occasionally when flushing, if I work the valve too quick there is a back splash which I get right in the face. You would think I would learn--but not so much.

Well darn! I just missed those option offerings. I would have gone for a couple of them. :)
