I did the best I could, quoting makes it difficult. It will be up to the posting members to pay attention what thread they're posting in. Find most of the conversation from the It's Friday - 2017 and beyond thread here: 2017 Builds - Conversation and Information

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's a great idea. Thanks for suggesting it.

Congrats Pete & Nancy

and thanks for posting the pics.

interesting to see the now mandatory little tiny step up into mandatory slightly higher dinette floor. (due to frame/etc changes that needed to be done)

A flat door looks good to me, as i know it then allows a bigger & different fridge thru, and it also may well seal better than a custom made curved door.

according to posts i have read, on this awesome user forum.





excited about our forthcoming 2017 21'.....

There are a number of advantages, most of which have been discussed, like a more conventional door jamb, parts and hardware, and a better seal on the door. But, I'm kind of on your side regarding the appearance. I like the look of the curved door because it has an 'aircraft' look to it. I suppose the flat sides and door will grow on me.

I think having a door wide enough to fit the Dometic Americana far outweighs my preference for the curved door and sides. But of course, they could have designed a wider door and kept the curve.

it may also mean you can see out the windows easier without paying extra for the raised floor/benches like in the Escape 19 with the dinette in the front...
