Tammy came with a 2017 19 on Thursday. Reace couldn't make it until this afternoon about 5:30. He came with the new 2017 17.

I did have a chance to talk to Reace when he arrived and I learned a couple interesting things about the new models. We operated the power awning and I must say it appears to be very sturdy and well built. It operates very smoothly and once it's retracted the trailer has a very clean and finished look. One other thing about the 2017 models - each of them is slightly heavier than their 2016 counterparts. That's mainly because with the flat sides, Reace had to design in more support structure to increase the rigidity. The weight difference isn't significant however. The frameless windows also appear to operate well, and the fact that they are all awning style is a major plus. My phone was dead when I met Reace coming in, so I don't have any photos of the 17. I'll take some tomorrow.

Tons of photos already at this thread:

New 2017 17' Trailer - interior and exterior photos



However, you can ask him why the trailer doesn't have the molded in medicine cabinet when the brochures say they're standard. The demo model I took photos of and most likely the same one at the rally, did not have it.

Thanks Laura, and yes, I've seen your photos of the new models. I just wanted to post an exterior shot of the 17 and 19 parked together at Osoyoos.

I did get to see photos of the new 5.0 TA molds/shell mock up. Reace showed them to me on his phone. Same basic shape as the current 5.0 TA, but with the flat sides and wider door - no surprises there.

Some attendees do not have internet as it is an expensive add on, plus others do not have reception, so with dealing with these two issues we may have to wait until attendees come home before posting. Jon Vermilye always does a nice job documenting rallies but I do not think he is in attendance this year, neither is myself.

Robert has been very busy this morning. Social protocol can be so time consuming.

Hi Jim. How was your night in your "new" out of shape trailer? Hope you were not up sipping coffee at 5 am already....
