Hi there, new to getting a travel trailer and have narrowed down the search to the 17 Plan B Escape or the 17 Casita Liberty or Spirit. Any owners of any of these trailers? Pros? Cons?
Hi - I'm new to the forum, but have been lurking for several months.
In process of looking for my first fiberglass trailer! I have been doing quite a bit of research, and am extensively using this forum as well as the Casita Forum.
I have not been inside of an Escape, but I love the 17B floor plan! Really like the idea of the small dinette in the front of the trailer.
But ... there is a significant difference in price between the Escape and Casita 17. So you have to decide if the extra $$ for the Escape is worth it! I do believe the both trailers are quality products.
For about the same $$ as new 17 Ft Casita, you may want to consider a Egg Camper
. This has a similar floor plan to the Casita Spirit Deluxe, but is wider and taller. So you feel less cramped. It is also a high quality product.
If I had the resources, I would probably consider the Escape 19 with the small dinette in front. ... assuming the 2 Ft difference will show up in the size of the rear bed.
One other consideration: I believe that the Casita is more aerodynamic --- Please correct me if I am mistaken. Because the Escape is more bulky, you'll be spending more $$ on gas. Again, if the gas milage is same for towing Escape vs Casita, please let me know.
I am also wondering if gas mileage is same for the Egg Camper
-- another trailer that is on my "short list."
I'd like to compliment all of the members of this forum. The information and ideas posted on this forum are just excellent!
