19 Foot Escape
How old are your girls?
I may have a faulty memory, but I swear that I saw a 19' Escape at a past Oregon Gathering that had two "Upper Bunks" (called a "Cot" in the options list) side-by-side above the front dinette that itself could sleep 2. If that is true, the 4 kids could sleep in the front of the trailer while Mom & Dad get the Queen bed in back.

Talk of sleeping 6 makes me think back to the 22' Winnebago my parents bought when I was a kid. It slept 8! The rear sofa pulled out to a double bed (my parents took that), the side dinette could sleep 2, overtop the sofa was a hinged, 2-folding-panel double bed, and over the front driver's compartment another folding-panel double bed (where I slept). Those hinged panels folded right up against the front or rear wall, with the split mattress cushion stowed behind them... pretty ingenious.

Check out this thread: Rear Bunks in Trillium 4500?

Trillium once built a model with a rear "double" bunk. So, technically feasible. I bet you could have one custom made for you.
Question is... where would you put everybody's "stuff" and keep your sanity?

Thank you everybody...really like the Escape 19, but as for the interior, hum... not sure. I prefere the old look of a vintage or the new look of a Casita.. My opinion.

HOHOHO like the ideas of the trillium 4500...maybe I can ask for the double bunks, and a sog=fa gaucho instead of the bathroom...would be great. Looking for a used one...never know. Maybe someday, somebody got the same idea ))

And finaley, Dave, I like very very much the Savana. A parent near my place bought one in the States last year. But I think the one you bought is slightly different with the ¨roof¨. I'm trying to check this on the used market, but I think my english misses some vocabulary words so I'm trying with writting only GMC Savana mini van touring...but I'm sure there is another way to search...would you be kind enough to give me some hint what words you used to search?

Thanks everybody...let you know what will come next

Isabelle,

The Savana is just for camping / long trips. My daily driver is a 1995 Firefly. My wife drives the Astro Van, which actually has one more seat then the Savana, but not nearly as comfortable. It is better in a parking lot though.

I would suggest the search term "travel van".

HAHAHA John, before I had children or even being with my husband, I wanted boys...I didn't want to live this mother-daughter thing. But after my firts one, I didn't know what i would have done with a boy...after the second one, I was wundering what to do with a boy But you are right...ti is terrible all this girly thing god...I think sometimes my husband is kind of...lost. He taught that girls would be easier on thing, not destroyig everything. Well I'm reassuring you all...girls are probably worst than boys to destroye

I had all boys, and believe me girls have got to be easier to raise. However boys are braver when it comes to sleeping in a tent. I would not even go to an outhouse at night as a kid, and well, still refuse to make that walk at night. S-c-a-r-y! Boys seem to have no problem. (trees are everywhere - LOL)

I have not noticed any gender differences in regards to camping. On our first trip to Ontario from Calgary, after three days in the Astro van, we arrived at my dad's place which is a lake front cottage. One of the twins, who are both girls, but otherwise nothing alike, said, "Daddy, daddy, it's even better then the trip!". They all love camping.

Other then camping, the girls are way easier to deal with. In fact, the 5 year old has been the most difficult so far, he is a boy, and I have some experience to draw on.
