Baglo, there is another reason you need a 19. Poor Charlie has no place to put her head on your dinette seat.

Have you turned the dinette into a bed? Comfy? And how is stretching out your toes?

I'm 6'0 or so

Wow-

Does that mean that the bed in the back of the 17b is permanent, and can't be folded up to a four-seat dinette?

It is whatever you want it to be.

Hi: tjhva... You certainly picked a fine trailer in the Escape. Our 2007 5.0 is a 17 on steroids. Double bed/dinette in back and a queen sized bed in the loft. You already have the pickup so a good hitch shop can set you up.

So...does that mean "yes", it does make into a table if you want to seat more folks than the front table will accommodate?

I ask because the only 17b I've ever seen had the bed in back made up, and it didn't occur to me that there might not be a table hinge/leg under there...

Thanks!

Francesca

It means you can order it with a dinette that converts to a bed (standard), or if you wish have it built as a permanent bed with more storage underneath.

Thanks!

Can it be ordered with the convertible setup and the storage under the back benches accessible from the outside via luggage doors?

I made that modification on my Trillium 4500 ( the 17's grandma) and LOVE it!

It lets me use that otherwise difficult-to-access space really useful for all my outside bits-n'pieces.

I like that it is silent. But, I did buy a Honeywell ceramic cube heater because it is faster and more compact. I haven't decided which one I prefer.
Usually we have no power, so the propane furnace does the job, waking me every time it starts up.

Yes it can. I know that one access hatch is standard on the 19 with the permanent bed. Not a lot of room on the other side though, as that is where the water heater goes. They have a flat panel moulded in there for its installation.

I use one of those little cube heaters, mostly for its size. It does have a bit of fan noise on low, but is WAY quieter than the propane furnace that wakes me up a lot of the time too.

If I'm fishing with my buddy, the front dinette is my bed and we eat outside. I get the front bed and it's just fine for me ( 5' 8" ). He gets the double rear.
With the Old Bag ( my wife, Leslie ) we leave the front dinette up and share the rear dinette/bed with the dog. A few times, the Old Bag has converted the rear bed to dinette for more comfort during the day. We haven't settled on a system even after four years.

Escape will add a hatch, accessible from outside. I have one at the front. Should have had it installed at the rear, but it depends how you use the storage and bed/dinette. Stuff can be stored in plastic bins under the bed if you don't plan to convert it into a dinette ( although you can shove bins under the trailer when you get to camp ).
