50/50 if we ever get another trailer it will be the Escape fifth wheel.
Once I learned a bit more about fifth wheels, I was sorry I bought a van instead of a pick up. Pickups are my first love anyway, but I needed something to live out of in the cooler months when the dog could safely stay in the vehicle while I was working. But- more and more I wish I had purchased a nice Chevy 4x4 pickup. Then I would definitely have chosen the fifth wheel, hands down.

Since I had a rear storage box mounted on the 17, the 21 is only 1' longer than the 17. So far, it has worked well, although I'll admit I found one site over the last 222 days that I had to park the tow vehicle off the trailer site.
Are you saying that Escape will build a reversed layout 19'? I am curious, since the rear dinette is a plus for me.

They certainly will, and have done it for a few people. The rear dinette then is massive, a full 60" deep by 80" wide. The bed is only 44" wide then.

The last time I checked, it was a $500.00 Canadian option. Even if you add a "U" shaped dinette, you still have a large table...

19 0r 21 Escape

I like both of them, I decided to buy a used one whatever came up first and was a reasonable distant from me and priced fairly.

I have only used the 19 once and the only compliant I have is one person has to climb over the other to get out of bed.

Good Luck

Not a problem, as long as the other person is also compliant.

Our bedtime routine with the 19 was the first one to bed went to the back side, then when one got up for the middle of the night bathroom trip we both went at the same time. I would get in the front side when we got back in bed, as I was always the first up.

that was the main reason we upgraded from the casita, we're both kinda broad at the beam, plus I'm 6' tall. the casita bed was intolerable so I ended up sleeping in the dinette-converted-to-a-bed, which is also suboptimal.

with the 21, even if I'm on the street side of the queen, I can scootch off the bed easily enough. and the bed is plenty big enough for both of us to get a good nights sleep.

A little bird told me that every flavor/type of Escape trailer is currently at Green Eggs & Ham (17, 19s, 21s, 5.0 TAs). ☺

That is a very good point. In fact, that is where we saw the 5.0TA, during a pre-rally get together with some friends.

If you are looking for big and roomy, the 21 is superior to the 19, as it is both wider and longer than the 19. The 21 was not yet available when I bought our 19, so I didn't have a choice. I really like the layout of the 19 as compared to the 21, and I am very comfortable with a cozier setting. If I was to buy over again and the choice was between a 19 and 21, I would make the same decision to go with the 19'. (Of course, if I was choosing again, I think the 5.0TA would probably win out for me.)

Both the Escape 19 and 21 are nice trailers .That being said one thing I don't like is the fact that few things seem to be standard equipment and everything seems to be a rather expensive option
The base price may be moderate but the final cost is not
Just my observation !

Options

We’ve had two Escapes which were and are very nicely appointed with options. However, we had a desire to add solar to both units after the purchase as well as a number of other options. We journeyed about 1800 miles to Escape to have this done. All work was done to our complete satisfaction and in the time frame they had predicted and we were comfortable with. Custom work does come with a cost and it’s true there’s some mark up in the equipment cost but we did not find it limiting, unreasonable or exorbitant. Escape Trailer Industries and their employees have been very good to us.

As I write this, the exchange rate for CDN is 76 cents to $1 USD. That's like buying a $30,000 trailer for $22,800 for US buyers!
