For the dinette area, the benches do play a role in adding strength to the shell, so captains chairs are not an option we can entertain. Sorry... but there are some very comfortable lounge chairs available for sitting outside under the awning!
Here are a few things that are set with regards to the chassis set up at this point...
Axles will be 3000 lb capacity torflex axles
2x4 tubular frame construction.
There is a discussion of "Comfy Reading Seating..." at the Casita Travel Trailer Forum (Don't know if you have to join to view, but it is worth joining anyway & they seem to tolerate me as an Escape owner.)
One of the solutions that is expensive, but interesting is the West Marine High-Back Go Anywhere Seat. Like any marine item it is a bit over priced, but it sure looks like it would be comfortable sitting in place of the bottom cushion in my 17!.
The front dinette in the 17B slides - I'm fairly sure it would fit with the table slid to the far side since I travel solo and wouldn't need to center the table after sitting. I'd also be able to use it outside on picnic tables, etc. Awful tempting!
You will not likely get anything but a wet bath, as though a few are not keen, most like myself prefer this option, as it frees up space for other uses. We rarely use the shower anyway.
As far as the bed aisles go, unless they decided to go even wider, and completely rebuild the mould, I doubt that there would be room on both sides for walking. With the width it is now, and with a full queen width, there would be only 20" left over, not enough for two aisles.

We are currently working on the mold and the plug for the 21 Escape and hope to have the first ones available late Spring however, we do not have them scheduled to enter production until October in case there are any unforeseen delays. Reace and I were just in Vernon looking at the 'plug' and other than being teal it looks fantastic!
We expect the 21 Escape to weigh about 300lbs 400lbs more than the 19 Escape which means we will probably recommend a 5000lbs minimum towing capacity.
Based on the current Standard Features list we anticipate the base price of this trailer to be $25,500.
