Hi: Reace... I realize it maybe concidered "Nit picky" but would this floor plan (Rear bed/front door) eliminate the awning brace crossing in the center of the window???
We also like the for/aft sleeping arrangement!!! One can get up and start the coffee while the other sleeps in and we know "Who" that is.

Add my vote to the rear dinette crowd and Donna's floor-plan, for enjoying the views.

I Like Donna's, too, providing ther are deep, long storage drawers under the bed, to facilitate weight distribution while traveling. Thanks for allowing us input during the planning stages. Vi

The biggest thing I don't like about the center bath is that it puts a bulky object in the middle of the trailer, taking away from a more open, larger feel. I, for one, would like the bathroom to be as small as possible using a wet bath. For the most part we would use facilities provided where we are camping, but would still like a functional bath for when it is needed. I guess though that others prefer a larger bath from feedback Reace got.

Here is an idea I threw together quickly, but is close to scale.

I too like Donna's plan, but it would have to be much longer then 19' to accommodate, making it much heavier. A while ago I played with ideas to fit a bed in a 19' trailer with access to both sides, but too much other stuff would have to be sacrificed to accommodate this. It would be great, just not too feasible.

I cheated, it's the 5th wheel layout, but with the bed down at floor level instead of in the "nose." The side bath Escape 5th wheel isn't oppressive. There's still plenty of openness about the whole trailer. Side baths allow for windows front and back too. I like lots of natural lighting. I know a few people have mentioned wanting the bed at the back to get it away from the road noise. But, I figure I've got at least the tug length away from the road and would much prefer viewing trees or a vista while dining/relaxing rather than the back of my tug.

I was once told to not purchase a house because of the extra guest rooms... that's why they make motels. In my selfish way, I would look to purchase a trailer for myself and maybe one other person. I know there are those that travel with more than two people; perhaps a bunk could be created for over the rear dinette?

I know without a doubt, that whatever floor plan Escape finally comes up with the entire trailer is going to be spectacular.

Reace's proposed front door layout is almost identical to the Trillium 5500, the fridge/stove and sink are on the opposite sides. With just two of us I find the layout quite functional, and it works well for us. The one thing I would have liked is outside hatch access to the areas under the rear bed, which we leave down all the time.

It's great to see a company actually listening to their customers requests and making changes as they can,still keeping the price reasonable

Haha..... I thought that floorplan looked familiar Donna! That plan is 19'-6"......the new trailer body will only be 16'.

I know the front to rear bed tops (almost) everyone's list of wants but.....there are a few factors to keep in mind.

This layout would require an additional 12" of length only to achieve a 6' bed.

The other issue with fiberglass trailers, the inner cabinetry construction is what provides most of the structural strength. The only way to achieve this type of layout is to have a full 7' wide bed or 5' bed with a 12" cabinet on either side. In my opinion, both are not practical or an efficient use of space, which in a small trailer, are huge factors.

Reace, for us, this is close to perfect in layout: sitting area/bed at rear; separate 2-person eating area at the front; front-to-back windows and light; full bath; headroom for a 6'2" husband.

The width, which is 4" more than the Casita we have at present, trades an infinitely more comfortable bed for the convenience of being able to see traffic behind the trailer without needing to install wider mirrors.

HOWEVER... one of the factors that led to our choice of a 17' trailer was the length restriction that most U.S. (and perhaps Canadian?) state/national/county parks place on trailers in tent sites. A trailer that is 17' or shorter (rarely, 18' or shorter) can go into a tent site. Those that are longer must go into trailer sites. It's been our experience that tent sites are generally more beautiful, particularly in the national parks, than trailer sites.

Would you consider increasing the headroom in the 17', an otherwise perfect trailer?

Part of the design concerns are keeping things proportionate. The reason the 19' is going to be taller and wider is to go along with the length. If I didn't, the trailer would look too much like a tube. The same goes with the 17'.....taller would be too narrow. Sorry.....lots of small details that we need to maintain to keep things aesthetically pleasing.

I like this one alot too...
especially if the rear bed area could become the "living room" and the front kept as the full time bed (course, we're smallish people)...The big living area would be nice for cold weather trips.

Hi Tammy
Just joined the group - really like the 19" unit so far. Had the pleasure of guesting in a 17' unit and loved it but need the extra length and ht. you've proposed. Looking forward to seeing it develope [ need to have a unit for next summer].
