I must have missed it too. When I asked Escape about putting the switches there, I was told that they didn't know and would have to ask Reace. He said sure, why not.

They have been putting the switches on the upper cabinets for nearly a year now. Maybe knowing they would not be able to go on the door jamb anyway, once the new moulds were done prompted it.

Glad I got a Classic build more and more. Being able to turn lights on without needing to step into the trailer is for me.

Looking at things from afar and with little time on this thread it looks to me that those having bought the classic will love their choice more and more. Those of us with little or no experience with the escape will be thrilled with the new version as we begin to pick up our 2017's. In the end happy is relative.

Bruce, you have it exactly right. There's an old saying "You can never miss what you've never had."

Here's what ours look like (pic posted in the "Secret customizations or standard options" thread). Of course this was September 2015.

It will be a bit easier, though templates will still be needed to be made and used for all the cabinetry components. What it will do though, is to give a bit more space at the top and bottom where the earlier moulds curved inward.
