Remember the “17” is only a 13’-8” interior length and the “19” is a 15’-8” interior length. The 19 is also 4” wider and an inch taller. With dogs and an older child you definitely want to go bigger if you can. Try to see both trailers and the decision will be easy.

I'm 6'3" and I sleep better in our 17B than in our queen size bed at home.

I have a 17A and am in Placerville. I'll send you a message with contact info in case you want to see mine. It doesn't have the bathroom, but all the other parts are the same.

My husband and I who live in Roseville, CA own a 2009 Escape 19, that we’d be happy to show you. We bought it used and in great condition when it sat for sale on this forum for months because it didn't have A/C (the previous owners in Montana mostly boon-docked).
My husband Bret has made several great mods, and in 2019 we had A/C, solar panels, bathroom window and fan all installed at the Escape factory in Chilliwack when we drove to Canada for a wedding. We had made a trip the year before with friends and got caught in 103 deg heatwave at a campground in eastern Oregon with hookups but no shade and it was miserable. We really appreciate having the A/C available when we need it and the solar panels always “keep the lights on” and much more.
Message us if interested to see a 19’ layout.
