Looking forward to being a full member in the Escape Club. 17 or 19 which one? One person.

Welcome, hopefully that's soon.

Where will you park it? The 19 being slightly larger than the 17, might be a factor.

We like the permanent bed and real mattress in our 19. Don't know if that's a biggie for you.

What's your tow? There's a substantial weight difference, so make sure the tow is up to the task.

Other than that, as a solo traveler I think you'd be quite happy with either of them.

Welcome. Are you planning to use this trailer a lot? You can see both in your area if you have not and probably decide easily then. There are singles in 21's and 5.0TAs also.

Welcome Paceman, you must make the trip out to Chilliwack to visit the show room.
Very friendly and help full staff and the trailers are well layer out each optioned out differently so you can visualize what your trailer may look like once you have chosen a size.
Good Luck

Jon, is the person you need to answer your question. He has been basically solo almost FT in a 17 for years now, and is trading up to a 21 in August. No better one on the forum to answer this query.

Thanks all. I like the queen bed in the 19. I will be towing the trailer with Tacoma v6 4x4.
Also any ideas as to which equalizer hitch to purchase?

Hi Greg A. I understand you have a 17 and you are moving up to a 21. I was wondering why you went to a 21 and not a 19?

Mark,
The person mentioned is Jon V. who probably has spent more time on the road than any of us, normally 6-9 months per year. He is also the unofficial Escape photographer who takes pictures at rallies while the rest of us are imbibing. then when we get home and regret not taking picture, Jon post's his. Great guy and mean blue berry pie maker. His 17 is/was just getting to cramped, so he bought a new Taco and will be getting his new 21 later this year. I on the other hand went from a 19 to a 21 and back to a 19, hmmm, maybe I'm dyslexic...

I sure like the ease of use on the $350 dollar hitch.

Escape sells either a Pro Series or a Fastway E2. Either will work fine. The Fastway uses longer rails and pins to hold the bars rather than chains as with the Pro Series.

They call the Pro Series an "Equalizer" on their options list but Equal-i-zer is a brand name, and they don't offer it. The Fastway E2 is quite similar to an "Equal-i-zer" hitch.

You can get either one cheaper on your own rather than getting it from Escape, but their price includes installation so I'd just let them do it.

Hi and welcome! We picked up our 19 last year and love it! You really should go have a look at both. Assuming you want one with a bathroom, the 19 feels so much more spacious. And the convenience of sleeping on a real mattress worth a million. But yes, it is more money.
Go check them out! Imagine yourself camping in each of them! Plan a little of your options and see how they will fit in your trailer.
And don't forget to keep us updated on your findings!!

You don't have to have a 19' for a real mattress. We're having our 17' dining area converted to a real mattress as we still have the small dinette across the room and there are two of us! It gives a better storage under the bed as well.
