Jane have you considered swapping out the cushions and installing chairs on top of the boxes? Per has a Burro and did something similar... I'll see if I can find a picture. I think comfortable seating is paramount.

Okay see this post: Comfortable seating, achievable? maybe read the entire thread.

Thanks, Donna. What a great thread! I'll look around and see what I can come up with and if anything good, I'll post pictures.

I'm only aware of the Escape 19 and now the Lil Snoozy that have queen beds and are larger.

If it's just the "feeling" of being small, I suggest you take a look at the EggCamper. It's 8 inches wider and 4 inches higher inside than most of the others, and has a very open feeling. My claustrophobic wife even feels "closed in on" in the Escape 19, but has no such problem in the EggCamper. I must add that I don't share my wife's feeling about the Escape, and think it has a wonderful floor plan.

Thanks, Ray.
In looking at the pictures online, it appears that the egg camper doesn't have a stove top - is that true? While we do most of our cooking outside there are occasions when we need an inside stove.
Thanks,
Jane

Jane, I see you are in California, I know that Parkliner sold a camper to someone in California. You could give them a call and see where they are, maybe if its close enough you could take a look at one.

Wow, the Bigfoot trailers do, indeed, seem to be the largest available. Bigfoot RV - Truck Campers & Travel Trailers - Recreational Vehicle Manufacturer - 2500 Series Travel Trailers
Does anyone here have any idea what the new ones sell for?

Jane, yes, most EggCampers are all-electric and use portable electric cook-tops or frying pans. I understand that a propane model is, (or at least was), available which would have a built-in stove. That's another consideration, if I did much camping where electricity wasn't available, the EggCamper wouldn't be my first choice. Here in the South, all the campgrounds seem to have electricity because of the need for air conditioning.

Thanks everyone!

Tim - I will do that. Thank you.

Daniel - I checked the website - thanks.

Ray - most of our camping is boondocking so electric only won't work for us, but thank you.

Jane

You'll have to get inside a 19' Escape and see for yourself. Is there enough extra floor space, cupboard and storage space to make a significant difference? Only you can tell. If there really is, then go for it and don't look back.

I've been in an Escape 19 and it felt good, but I wasn't thinking about it in the terms you are. Only you can picture where things (and people and pets) will fit into the interior and how helpful (or not) the square footage will be within the confines of the layout.

Now, if it were only a perception of space that you were after, then I could say yes, the 19 will feel bigger. But I doubt that's your main need, right?
