That makes sense, and it means that Glenn's comment about weight and mine about the need for (and implications of) corresponding larger waste tanks apply.

The Northern Lite Boreal 23FB is substantially larger (longer, and likely wider) than even the planned Escape 23', so I wouldn't count on getting comparably sized tanks.

Nice looking trailer , and we would have been interested in a new trailer except for the fact that right now we can’t use or sell the one we have.. Maybe next year if things change ,the stock market improves , and we still have our health .

Escape's current sizes for the 21' (28 fresh, 20 black, 28 grey, all in US gallons) are at this maybe-no-toilet-use extreme. ........................
As of 8:12 am on April 9, 2020 Escape lists their tanks on the 5.0 as 28 fresh, 30 black, 28 grey. 30 black? That's a lot of ............. I assume (we know where that gets us) that 30 black is for gbaglo when he moves up to a new 5.0.

OTOH, I just wish our 5.0 had a 40 gallon fresh tank (or even a 35 gallon). It's amazing how much time it takes to drain the black tank! Only if we never use our toilet will we fill the grey. Let's face it, those tank gauges are worthless when you're near empty. I've already ran out of water twice while taking a shower. In our old Aerolite we stood in about an inch of water when the shower quit working from a drained fresh tank. Standing in water told me to hurry and rinse.
