There's the difference between Rice TX and Chilliwack BC.

Question hmmmm.....

Question........ am I to understand that the new frameless windows only come as an "option" with the extra insulation?

"Extra Insulation & Frame-less Thermal Windows (Includes Opening Rear Window, Frt. Window with Rock Shield Non-Thermal).*
$1,000.00"

So what do I get if I do not want the extra insulation?

If you get the Frame-less Thermal Windows (or the dual-panes in the Classics) you really do want the extra insulation. Remember, that is different than the sprayed-on-foam insulation.

The refrigerator is available with no appearance panel, for RV manufacturers who want to insert their own panels, usually to match the cabinet doors. Optionally, Dometic will supply a panel for each door - I don't think there's a choice of colour, but it might be reversible (perhaps black on one side, white or "stainless steel" look on the other). Whether from Dometic or custom, the panels are held in place by the bezel surrounding the door - the panel slides in from the top.

If you don't have panel inserted, you see the foil face of some insulation - the refrigerator is not intended to be left that way.

Escape could presumably put raised-panel wood inserts on the refrigerator, to match the cabinets (like I have in my motorhome), but that just seems like pointless expense and weight to me.

I read the question to mean "What windows come with the trailer if you do not get the thermal option?"
So what do the non-thermal windows looks like? Are they frame less as well, but single pane glass?
I guess we all have to wait to see unless someone has an insider answer!

I assume that if you don't get the optional insulation and thermal window package, then you get "frameless" non-thermal (single pane) windows; however, the new and previous windows are presumably interchangeable so I suppose the non-thermal package could be the previous traditional sliders.

The updated 19' features list does not describe the windows, and Reace hasn't yet (as far as I have seen) described the window situation fully.

It is not clear to me whether the frameless windows shown in Reace's photos are single-pane or double-pane (thermal).

Not only is not including a propane furnace limiting to the owner, it would make resale difficult.

Oh joy.

Granted, the last post was in 2014, but still!
ouch! well if Escape has a two year warranty and that includes the standard awning guess they just replace them if they fail...could be a real bust for Escape if they have to replace some of them under warranty....wonder if Dometic will back the warranty for two years..guess Escape is comfortable rolling the dice.
