It's All A Matter Of Perspective

We just returned from the Townsend rally where there were over 80 molded fiberglass trailers in attendance. The Escape 21, (along with the Escape 5.0 TA), were the largest trailers at the rally. During the open house we kept hearing how “large” or “roomy” our Escape 21 was. It almost made us feel extravagant to have something that big. I remarked to my wife how strange it felt, because usually when we go camping our “little 21” is one of the very smallest trailers and we feel quite spartan with our minimalist self-denial. It's all a matter of perspective.

There were a couple of SOB's that were bigger, but the 21' Escape was the biggest. I was hoping to see an Oliver Legacy II, it makes the Escape 21' look small, but alas none showed up.

It's all relative. We have a friend who bought a 37 foot Mobile Suite with a 4 door, 20 cubic foot fridge, dishwasher, washer dryer, king bed center island kitchen, fire place and a 5500 watt generator.... a number of Scamp 16s could fit into this thing. Heck his 237 gallons of fluid capacity is almost big enough to fit our Scamp....

He has more things, we've been to more places

Hi: Ray N... It was great seeing you two again. I sometimes refer to our 5.0TA as a "Grade A extra large egg". Big in the egg world but small in the 5th. wheel world.
We got home just in time to see some snow fluries. Brrr. Alf

Here in the Oregon Coast RV park where I live full-time, in the front section where the short-term folks camp, I spotted a 13' Lil Bigfoot a few days ago. Their rig was sporting B.C. license plates, which drew my attention, too (I was born in Ontario). I hadn't seen a 13-footer for a long while, so of course had to stop to chat.

When I told them I was living full-time in a 17-footer, they had to come see my baby. They were so amazed at how much room I had! This wouldn't work for some, but for me & my 2 kitties, it's been perfect.

So, yes, I agree it's a matter of perspective.
