Interesting. When they introduced the 15 ft it competed with the 13 ft. I would think a 21 ft will sell for about the same cost as the fifth wheel. Raz

I'll wait to see what Reace and Tammy come up with for Plans B and C. That's a lot of trailer to work with.

Sounds like a plan B to me.

Floorplan LOOKS like a mirror image (Reversed front to back) of a Bigfoot 21 RB. Lookin' forward to seeing it 'in the flesh"!

Escape does some the very BEST-built, most well-crafted units around - this could easily be a real winner for them, as the F/G market is currently underserved in anything over a 19

You like looking at your tug while eating a meal? NOT me, gotta look out the back at a lake, ocean or even trees.

Different strokes for different folks

I can understand the desire for Escape to broaden their offerings. Certainly it provides more opportunity in a down market. I read someone compare it to a 21 foot Bigfoot. For some an Escape 21 will not be big enough and a 25 foot Escape (Bigfoot) will be required.

Certainly I wish Escape well; we all want these Fiberglass manufacturers to be successful.

I do wonder about getting larger. Today I was approached by two people at a "welcoming" seeking smaller rigs.

For two days we have stopped in the Oregon Escapee park, there are unfilled sites, unusual for this time of the year. We have seen the same story in many parks this year. I do wonder about the market for heavier, bigger rigs.

My desire is a lighter, more functional rig.

It's not just longer; it's heavier. And over on the ROTI site, one respondent on the review page says he wonders why Escape can't produce a fiberglass interior liner and avoid the swelling and warping of wood and fiberbd. That's an easy one! The "clean room" look can't compete with a house beautiful on wheels. Or can it? Thousands of starkly utilitarian cookiecutter crash pads on one hand vs. a blingy subcompact park model which won't remind you of a cattle car. Which would I choose? I'd like to have the bucks to give me a choice. Maybe they're attempting to fill the shoes of really Bigfeet.

Sounds like that individual is thinking of a stick built trailer. I haven't heard of any Escapes that have a problem with swelling and warping wood. Has anyone? And my all wood 24 year old Scamp certainly hasn't had any. Wood interiors allow a multitude of manufacturers and owner modifications, not so when there's a molded interior. What I'd like to see is a white wood interior. Deb's&Chuck's 21 foot Bigfoot is beautiful inside with the white wood... like it's stained or pickled, not painted. It really makes it seem huge inside.

Should be interesting to see the final product(s), but isn't speculation fun!

I'm not sure if that is always 100% the reason. I've seen a few campgrounds that have empty spaces in the SMALL sites, but the spots for bigger units are full. (and, like Norm, I've seen the opposite, as well)

(and no, I have no explanation for either case!)

As I've noted before, if Bigfoot or Escape would build a MOLDED glass trailer in the 30 foot range, they can mark the first one as having been pre-sold and put my name on it. We would have very happily bought that Bigfoot 28 foot Silver Cloud, but neither of us cared for the floorplan. (Diff people like diff plans - that one was Beautiful but we want a REAR bed , not a rear living/dining room. (Yes, Donna, we'd rather spend our "awake hours" at the hitch end, and we'd really rather have have guests enter through in the living/dining room end, not the bedroom!)
