I'd make the pick up before the rally in Osoyoos and then attend the rally.

I don't like the idea of it just sitting around the lot.

true..ETI already bailed on the hyped 2017 Dometic powered awning for another brand...hopefully the new insulation and it application technique proves to be solid.

I must have either been asleep or misinformed. Are you saying the 2017 19" has the pole? I don't recall seeing it when I toured the new 19 at Osoyoos.

Or, are you saying they 'should' add the pole? I don't see how the new awning design would benefit from it. The awning is recessed and supported on either end by reinforcement in the shell and backing plates.

I was told by Sarah and confirmed with Tammy that the pole will be standard in the new 2017 models, 19 and 21 and 5.0. It was not installed yet in the 19 Demo.

If your not getting a microwave I really like the way they are adding a third cabinet under the sink.

I would like to see a picture of the pole in the 19' when you get one.

Second switch may be for overhead lights or the awning.

I also like the outlet under the counter extension being moved so it's not under the extension.

It looks like they have moved the coax and electrical for the TV to the fridge wall and out of the upper cabinet.

A 3rd ceiling light has been added above the dinette and no light under front shelf now.

I like it all!
