I just did a rebuild of my 2019 E21 with the current option prices....substantially more to purchase new again. But on the other hand, a slightly used 6 month unit is also worth more in the used Escape market, curious on the new model pricing. My propane tanks are still full, so no worries....

I really hope that someone creates a much better name for this layout! If it really has the same layout as the 19', in a 21' length, then "21' rear bed" would be much more clear.

Compromise perhaps? Have a "Guest" button that the casual looker could use, and a signup for the serious buyer?

Just curious, is a larger fifth wheel with a dry bathroom on the horizon? If not in 2020, perhaps in 2021 or 2022?

Hey l like that Glenn, easy to remember and very descriptive. And it could double as a password when you want to sign up to price one out.

“Jan/Feb 2020 Offer
While we work through our switch to 2020 pricing, we are offering 2019 pricing for base and options to all customers for orders with Jan or Feb dates. Feb is now open for orders. 01 March 2020 is the cut-off date to retain 2019 pricing.”

I’m a little confused by this. Does this mean that in order to get 2019 pricing an Escape order would have to be placed by the end of October? Also I presume 2020 prices will be higher, but wonder by how much? We were all set to order a 21 ft Escape for next spring. The news of a new 21 config and a 23 ft have us intrigued. But it sounds like, timing wise, announcement of the specifics might coincide with the closing window on 2019 pricing. We’d hate to put an order in on a 21 ft and then a few weeks later find out we would have rather waited for the new designs (even if it means paying more).

Not being familiar with how purchases go, is it possible to place an order for a 21 now to get the 2019 prices, and then change my mind once the details of new models come out, without forfeiting any money?

Thanks.

You should address your question to ETI directly to ensure you get the correct answer.

Don't worry, we know an owner of an original 5.0 single axle who, when he bought it asked Reace is he ever planned on a tandem 5.0, Reace said no, then he went ahead and made one which the owner then subsequently bought in 2015 and sold his single axle. We happened to meet up with the owners of that one last weekend.

You gotta take your chances!

But point deducted for stealing Bigfoot's naming scheme as the basis.

Seriously, it's pretty easy to read the model badge on the side of most trailers and understand at least something about the layout without looking any windows... "RQ" for Rear Queen bed and "FB" for Front Bed (from Bigfoot), "BH" for Bunkhouse, etc. It works.

How about 21RCO (Rear Crawl Over) for a new name. Getting away from a crawl over sleeping situation is what drove a lot of people to the E-21 in the first place. If you are going to loose your rear dinette view to a sleeping area a better option would be rear twin beds. You already have an E-19 with a Rear Queen and a dinette view of the rear of your tow and a bunch of other trailers in the campground. Just my opinion.

Amen to that, Alf. I read all these posts with both a sincere wish for their success and a thank you for the serendipity to have bought mine in 2018.

One thing for sure is that with all that is on the horizon it should be fun reading the forum over the next year. I have a feeling it will keep me busy during the Winter while dreaming of Spring. Haven't winterized yet and we are in NE Ohio. Still more camping to accomplish this year.

Yes, you would need to place the order by the end of October. The new pricing (with the previously optional extra insulation and double glazed windows) on the 21' has gone up by approx. 12%.

The major change for the 21' is insulation and double glazed windows as standard options. That can be ordered now. The 23' foot will not be ready for a spring pick-up date.

Thanks.
Yes! If the trailer is not in production, we will happily make whatever changes you'd prefer.
