It has been a long wait. We agonized over the options and hope we made the right choices. We sold our Casita in April and missed an entire camping season. This six or seven week trip with the new Escape should make up for that.
We never needed any kind of special Anderson type hitch for the Casita so we are assuming we won't need one for the new 19. We tow with a Honda Ridgeline. We will fill the truck bed with what we need to set up the new trailer. We are primed and excited. I wish we had more pictures.
We put a lot of thought into our build. Ad vice and suggestions from this board was most valuable. We'll report back as to what works and what we wished we'd done.

I'm sure you'll be fine with your choices. Even the stock 19 with no options is a great rig! I also don't think you'll need any special hitch arrangement towing with the Ridgeline. Give it a while and see how it goes.
Happy travels, and congrats on your long wait being over - (almost).
