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).
received this info previously..
"Thank you for your email. The window style currently used for single glazed will remain the same. However, in the 2017 model, you will get frameless windows if you choose the double glazed winter package. We are staying with our current window manufacturer, Hehr."
Escape will probably clarify if something changed since early March info.

And it attaches to the outside door somehow so you can open both at once.

Had they done any interior work when you were there? I'm really curious about the inside of the trailer with the straighter walls. I'm thinking the Bali blinds (that we install, not ETI, for those wondering) will hang much better, so I was thrilled to learn about the straighter walls some months back.

Did you see (or know) where the medicine cabinet will be installed? We're not getting the sink in the bathroom as I want more room in there when taking a shower, so I'm wondering if that will cut into the space I was trying to acquire. And how tightly sealing is it so your stuff inside doesn't get all wet.

Fortunately we have some time to figure out if we want to switch to the 2017 version or stick with the 2016 version. And I've got time to research the new awning, frig and anything else that might pop up as new options or features. And to figure out the new price vs what we already paid.
The screen is similar to what you describe, I forget exactly how it works but I don't think it had one of those sliding panels, I think it was something round. I guess I could have paid more attention, but that was not a focus of my visit, and it is what it is. I am going with it regardless.

Nothing was done inside. The shell had the door and belly band on it, that's it. It didn't even have the new axle length under it yet.

Though I knew of the medicine cabinet, I did not think to ask where it is. Again, this wasn't a focus for me, another "It is what it will be"

Yeah, I know, I'm still freaking about the potential of getting locked in or out of the trailer, even though others have said they never had that problem.
No idea on this either, the one I had on my '09 worked great for us.

First of all, we like to keep the interior as bug free as possible. We found the attached type screen door to be a PITA to use in a way that keep bug ingress to a minimum.

The Scamp bi-fold did the job quite well. You never had to let go of it. Pop it open, enter, pop it closed. If the Escape had come with it I'd have been just fine with it.

Love the current Escape screen door. With an added handle we can flip it open, be in or out and flip it closed before any local bugs can get their act together.

To each their own.

Not sure what you are disagreeing with me on. Your points are the reasons I liked the sliding screen. However, it required a lot of tweaking, and added quite a bit up bulk, taking up space inside.

I would love something like it, but made a lot better.

I don't imagine they will be around a lot longer either, they are fairly dated.

I totally agree. I would be most nights we camp we have had to make use of the propane furnace, as it was the only option when boondocking. Without it, cold temps are not the worst fear, it is the huge amount of condensation that would form in the cold air, and cause damage inside.

After seeing that first shell that came out of the moulds 3 weeks ago, to what Reace showed photos of today, they must have been busy. No doubt a ton of work to do inside, making new templates, and getting everything to fit.

Trust me, there is a lot of good to come from the flatter sides, not just a better, wider door, and new windows.

New 2017,

We picked up our 2016 19' Escape Classic this afternoon......and we're lucky enough to take a peek at the new 2017 19' Escape......after seeing the pictures on the forum.....I thought it was lacking some character....BUT after seeing it in person or trailer.....it is a very nice unit.The windows provided adequate air flow, the back window is a split window so you can open either side (cool). The flat door is really well made and has a screen door that has a frame. I think anyone ordering the NEW 2017 will be very happy with the changes.....Congrats to Tammy and Reace! Can't wait to see the next trailer is a different Colorado graphics!

Congrats Dale n Wendy on your new 19! Enjoy...
Good report on the 2017, sometimes pictures just can't convey like an up close look.

Good to hear your praise. Things often look better in person, as Donna had already alluded to.

An thanks for the confirmation on the rear spilt window, and how it operates. That does sound cool.

Pictures? Did you get to go inside? Otherwise how could you tell about airflow? Was there any interior work done yet? Did the screen door seem pretty easy to use? Did they deploy the awning?

Interesting on the split window in the back.

Thanks for the info. The agony of waiting for more detailed info, photos and prices! And then deciding which version to get.

That was great that you got to compare the two different versions of the 19'.
