It's Friday! - 2017 and beyond!

I'm starting a new It's Friday thread. All the wonderful pictures and the excitement for the owners of the new models of Escape trailers warrant a different thread

Thanks for the pics, the more I see of the 17's the more I like them.

I assume you mean "2017" not the 17' models, correct Bob?

I see you reversed the floor plan and raised the dinette.

No, that is the stock arrangement, the raised floor is under the bed.

Oh, I see. On the new ones the floor under the bed is raised?

In my 2012 I had the raised floor under my bed, do you not have that in yours?

congrats on a new 2017!
did you get the optional insulation...as that material on the wheel wells looks different than the previous material with the reflective surface...however it appears there is some reflective material behind the bath.
did you get thermal slider or thermal frameless windows?
care to share the name of the trailer insurance provider..always good to know a provider that is actually there when you need them especially for a trailer!

We ordered the the optional extra insulation and thermal frameless windows. We didn't have any extras like that on our previous trailer because the costs starting adding up pretty quickly. Its easier the second time around.

Aviva was the insurance provider brokered through our credit union.

great pics...
wondering if you purchased the optional reinforced walls?
Looks like the wall between the fridge and the bed area and the wall between the shower and the dinette (visible in the cutout area for the shower cabinet) is solid plywood rather than the stick and glue construction walls?

Interesting how much they put padding in place between their work and their tools to keep from dinging up the exterior

Did you get the larger refer? It appears there is no microwave above the refer?

Looks like something is different under the kitchen drawers and may be having a microwave installed there because of the larger fridge. Either that or they have changed something on the cabinets.

The 120v outlet next to the bed seems to be moving around, on one picture it is located next to the bed, where it has always been and in the earlier post of 2017 pictures it is located under the furnace? I asked ETI and was told it has been moved to the furnace location, but here it is back to the original place? I like it here as shown as it makes it more usable for things in the bed area versus a cord across the bottom from the center location.
