Yes we knew last year we wanted an Escape. We sold our Scamp within a month maybe of it being on here. But then we waited like 5 to 6 more weeks I think for the new owner to pick it up. He gave us a deposit , right away. And the balance whe he came to get it. All the way from Colorado. Sight unseen except our pictures. I also helped install the hitch in his truck. We love fiberglass rvís.

Well, it was supposed to be finished on the 13th of April. Itís close though, on everything but the windows,tv mount, and the faucet which hasnít yet been installed. Windows were on backorder, but may be in now, or soon.

Good thing we didnít go to pick it up yesterday, as we originally planned.

I assume you ordered the frame style windows and they are back ordered?

No, the Frame-less Thermal Windows (Includes Opening Rear Window). That included Opening Window in Bathroom (Frame-less Thermal). But ETI changed my order during the build cycle. Now I get a non-thermal window for the bathroom. Evidently the small windows are going to be framed. That’s an unwanted late change.

Most of those who ordered recently, are aware of the change in window manufacturers, and that the new manufacturing company is not making the small thermal window for the bathroom. The non-thermal windows appear to be framed.

So we get a conglomerate hodgepodge of different window types. Hopefully not too visible from the curbside, entrance approach—for the bathroom window. Otherwise, it’s going to stick out; undesirably. If you want the same looks, all around, then order the non-thermal. But you might have a bit of condensation, or issue with heating and cooling in extreme temperatures.

Glad I didn’t order small windows for the street side (if the appearance is off).

oh, crap, the small non thermal are framed? or just appear framed since you see the frame thru the glass?

Trailer: 2019 Trailer 21'
Posts: 36
Last week when I got my supposedly finished trailer pictures for my 21' I saw the three dinette windows plus the kitchen window (frameless) were not installed. When asked my salesperson told me they ran out of windows and were waiting for new orders to come in. Yesterday she replied that they just got the new windows shipment.

I'm betting the weather plays havoc when trying to restock. Trying to estimate how long products will last, when to re-order and then storing until use... those dang logistics things.

I would have thought with financial backing that ordering for months vs weeks would take place...maybe we just did not know about what happened in the past?
