Among the things you may want to consider are the interior height.
Casita's 17' SD just allows my 6'2" husband to stand up straight when he is barefoot. The Escape
, however, has a maximum interior height under 6'. It was the primary reason we didn't choose the Escape
Another consideration, for us, was the manufacturer's location
. We initially investigated the Escape because it is so much closer to where we live (northern California). If all other things are equal, you may want to compare the pick-up/delivery costs, as these add to the price.
A final reason for our choice of Casita
was the company's track record
, not only for service and quality but also its longevity
. There are many truly excellent fiberglass trailers still on the road but not many of the original manufacturers are still in business. Because was are not, ourselves, "handy" (and haven't the time, if we were), it was important to us to buy a trailer from a company that we could continue to call for information and repair support.
While we loved the Escape layout, our requirements led us, ultimately, to the Casita
Happy travels, whichever you choose!
