Squire feet

I looked at an Escape 19 foot the other day and was wondering about the actual squire footage. Measuring my 17 Foot Bigfoot 13 feet inside x 7.6 gives me 98.8 sq. feet of room. I believe the 19 foot does not give much more or even less. Thoughts.

Squire feet

Escape has very detailed dimensions on their website, including- I believe- the information you need. Perhaps not much difference, as you say.

Square footage only tells part of the story, though. Layout matters. Things like how much storage, the size and location of cabinets, the width of the aisle, and even the size and placement of windows all have a significant effect on how a trailer actually feels in use. And itís pretty subjective. One person would rather have more storage and another would rather have more open space.

Squire: a young nobleman acting as an attendant to a knight before becoming a knight himself.

Don't know how this relates to an Escape 19?

How many footmen does it take to make a squire?

I'm with most on the square foot thing, I have found that trailer design is 95% of the trailers ability to use the space allotted for the user, so what works for one may not work for the other. Most walk into a trailer and it either works for them, or it doesn't, in many cases the wife will make the decision for you.

Once a Knight always a Knight but once a night’s enough? Does this apply to footmen too?

+10 Square feet does not matter very much. Layout matters A LOT. I find the aisle way on our 19 to be much wider than the aisle on our prior Casita 17. The two of us can pass each other in the aisle on the 19, not possible in our 17. Of course, the size of the two people matter in this comparison. But something as simple as being able to pass each other really matters on longer trips.

Sure, the square footage of a 13 versus a 16 or 17 matters a lot. Interior dimensions are listed on the Escape website.

Wider makes for a roomier layout but harder towing. I love narrow trailers like Scamp, Casita, and others that track within the profile of our tow vehicle. Less aerodynamic drag, better rearward visibility, and less likely to catch a curb in a turn or drop off the pavement on a narrow, shoulderless road.

Iíd love to own an Oxygen some day!

For what it's worth, I believe the original quote was, "Once a King, always a King, but once a Knight is enough." I believe I still have a coin from England with that engraved on one side and an image on the opposite side of a "droopy" Knight on a droopy horse. Now back to the OP's original query....

Yes. Narrow really makes a difference.

I saw my first Oxygen in MN. It was parked near the boat launch at Grand Marais. What beautiful lines. I could be tempted, if they had air conditioning.
