wondering the same thing!...customer driven 2017 options?

I get that. Im only referring to the ability for the trailer to circulate air. Personally I don't want my trailer to be a wind tunnel, and don't mind using the fan to maintain temps. If I want a good breeze I take a few steps out the front door. Its all good!

This was added close to two months ago. We were originally going to get an upgrade to stainless as I didn't like the white, which is what it was when I started working on the build sheet in early December. At the end of January/very early February I looked again at the standards sheet and noticed it was black, which would have been my preference. Got it switched and Sarah said they had just changed that standard feature.

Like some others, I prefer the look of the Classic; however, I'm sure the new 19' will prove very popular. The newer awning does look a little less sturdy than the old but I'm sure it's just fine; however, I wonder how the screen room works with the new awning ... or is there a screen room anymore? Adding a screen room without additional bracing seems sketchy due to the additional weight.

No, I never had a problem with the awning. I rarely used it. Repetition being the best teacher, that may be why my comfort level has remained low. I am also mentally lazy when I want to be. Two other reasons could be worry it could unfurl when driving (highly unlikely) and, when backing the trailer up in my yard, I kissed the rear lower arm bracket and had to replace that, twice.

This newer awning has a much cleaner, more secure look for me.

One of the biggest things I like, is that it looks great stowed. No coil of fabric left exposed. Of course it needs to work open too.

I was wondering about that with the old style screen door. I could just see myself yanking that thing out all the time. However, in the Jayco motorhome I rented, using the screen door was rather a PITA at times. So, not sure which style screen door would be better (for me, at least).

Dirk works with composites at Boeing and he says it can be tricky getting them just right, such as the door for the trailer, so he wasn't surprised to hear about gaps and such. The new style door will save ETI tons of labor along in not molding it and fixing any problems before delivery or later on.

I just looked at the info for the 21' on their site and the frig listed is actually smaller than before - 6.0 now and was 6.7 cu ft before.

Can't wait until we're told it's okay to come up to view the new style trailers, both inside and outside. Wonder when the interiors will be finished.

yeah i'll admit as a Southern California resident who boondocks a lot in the desert.... the reduced (compared to sliders) ventilation with the frame-less is a drag!!
