Can you tell how it's mounted? I would also love to see some more pictures of it and of your fridge closed and open showing the whole thing in the cabinet.

Thanks
The location is only a problem if you drive into something, and yeah it will break away. Emphasis on break. If you break the Jack antenna you will also break the MaaxAir Vent and whatever else is up there. I can't post a pic of the fridge open or else Marry will issue me a citation

Dang, that is one nice looking fridge Dave. I'll bet Reace and the crew are happy campers to be rid of all the issues with the 8 series.

That's a GoPower solar controller panel.

The new fridge looks like the the same stuff as in the sunblockers. I like the look of the old one better...........

This "It's Friday" thread for the second gen Escapes has lots of useful info. It seems the original "It's Friday" thread for the classics was a cool place for people to simply share their photos of their trailer in production. Should a new thread be started that would be devoted to production pics of second generation trailers, or should useful info about trailer weight be in a separate thread. I know I am going out on a limb here especially since I am a newbie.

That would make sense to me. Moderators - anyone want to move some posts?
