Some quick math on the ventilation area of a 2' x 3' window (I don't know what the actual size is)...

Awning type (with a 4" opening): 240"
Sliding type (approximating 1/3 opening): 288"

So it is close. But now that the rear window opens this surely makes up for the difference in open ventilation area. Plus as others pointed out you get more privacy, unbroken view, a sharper look and you can keep them open in the rain.

Personally I have never owned, nor even stepped inside an Escape trailer. So I have nothing to compare the new model to the old. What I do know though, is that ETI has a very good reputation for great customer service and extreme pride in their product.
As I have followed this forum since 2013, I have seen many of you purchase, resell, and purchase again, a new style or upgrade. Your commitment to a product that is not the cheapest trailer on the market, is not mass produced for fast delivery, and takes months to actually enjoy, proves to me a loyalty by their customers. Not to mention it reflects on a proven record of commitment by Reace, Tammy and all their employees, to provide a reliable and trustworthy unit.
I will not worry in advance about possible "what ifs". Instead, I will continue to believe from what I have read on this forum, that "if" a problem does come up, Reace and Tammy will be on it.

I saw that too, and wondered if it had to do with the size, and that fact of is operating?

Great perception, and good attitude.

I bought my 19 having never seen any more of an Escape that a quick glance driving by. No regrets.

I doubt it. Straight in unobstructed trumps a circuitous route anytime. For those of us who like a natural breeze without having to run a fan the slider would be superior.

That's pretty much the consensus on other RV forums that have had the frameless Windows for some time now. Also seem to report at first glance a number of mechanical issues with them. My question if I was going to order would be is there still a capability to get the thermal framed Windows rather than the frameless, or is the frameless the only option.

Wonder if the new awning will have a room option. According to the Dometic website there might be.

I like three changes. 1. The new wider door allows for previously prohibited, better fridge options. 2. The old retractable screen door is a bad design and terrible pain. 3. The old manual awning always made me nervous.


Everything else looks just fine to me.
