I guess we all make decisions in our own way. I hate stress, so avoid it. After hearing of the upcoming changes 10 months ago,and knowing the reasons for the changes, I left my trust with Reace as I knew he would strive to reach the right choices, and new my next Escape would incorporate the new design. I made this decision long before any details and some selections are made.

This is why my attitude toward my new trailer is a positive one, having fun deciding what to do. I choose not to agonize over choices. Even when I do extensive research on stuff, with hours spent comparing options, it is fun for me. This is exciting!

assuming they are the HEHR as Escape indicated previously in an email, then guessing the frame-less is the new HEHR 6400 glass series but still just a guess.
my being ignorant about trailers, the new 2017 Escape option will allow one to buy thermal windows for whichever version slider or frame-less the buyer is comfortable with. AND also very important.. to get the extra insulation option regardless of which thermal window is purchased!

happy camper!
Cool! Great news!!

When I was doing some research on frameless windows a few months ago, I came across a site that gave information on how to replace them. I also found information on different styles of frameless, including one that had a slider window in it. For me, that's the best of both worlds. I'm not a big fan of crank out windows as I much prefer sliding windows, but I really like the look of the frameless over the framed windows.

This link is on different types of windows:

Poo, can't find that article that showed the slider frameless window, but did find an image of a split window with one side opened, like what will be on the back window, so that was cool to see in better detail:

These guys do mention a slider in their frameless section:

If I was wondering what to do as far as getting the right trailer, I would do what we did. Take the trip to Chilliwack and see the trailers as they are. I am so glad we went there to make up our minds between the 19 and the 21. In my opinion there is nothing worse than to make a major purchase and then kick yourself for years down the road and say I should have done this or I should have done that. It is the best and cheapest to get it right the first time. Loren

my thoughts was that if I buy thermal frame-less and knowing they only open 4" at the bottom with less than straight line ventilation, and in lieu of any actual testing data to show ventilation better or worse than slider in an actual Escape 19..might be purchasing and camping in an oven...I can always upgrade later to thermal frame-less as the design of them gets better and if that is the direction of the window manufacturers. Do like the idea of the frame-less as a semi-rain canopy when open, but not comfortable without more facts to purchase them. And as a buyer I really wanted the 2017 extra interior insulation option decoupled from the thermal frame-less window type option...which it now is.

I was a buyer for many years. Despite doing a lot of research on whatever I buy, the biggest decision maker was the relationship of the seller. With the reputation of Reace and Tammy of doing the right thing, I have no doubt that the new models will be well made and the options will be worth whatever extra charge (above exchange rate).

Laura, I would not be the least bit concerned with ventilation. I am very confident it can be adequate with the awning windows.

Let me explain my thoughts. This all is independent on using A/C, something I have never had. For starters, in the morning we know it is going to be a hot day, we keep the trailer sealed tight, as this is the first defence against it getting too hot inside. This is also where the dual glazed windows and added insulation shine. Having the awning deployed helps too. Only when temperatures inside begin to get near those outside will we begin to ventilate, especially if we need to be inside for some reason. What we do them is to partially open a couple windows, and set the Maxx can on low to exhaust. This can is a fantastic feature that works very well, draws little power, and is quiet. If needed, you can crack open a couple more windows, and turn the fan on higher, which will induce great airflow throughout the trailer.

In 6 years we never had all the windows open at the same time.

This works great on hot nights too. We crack open the window over our heads as much as needed, and turn the fan on a low speed exhaust to draw fresh air across our faces. Unfortunately, this may not work so good in the 5.0.

We use awning widows in lots of homes we renovate, and they provide great ventilation. The biggest hindrance to an unrestricted airflow is the screen.

After taking your idea to Reace, we have decided to offer the window packages as single pane non-thermal, double glazed thermal with extra insulation, and new frameless double glazed with extra insulation, on the 2017 models. The extra insulation is automatically paired with both double glazed windows in all 2017 models. Hopefully this will make everybody happy. J
Customer Service"

now that is "customer driven" !!
this potential customer is back in the line for a 2017 and very happy!
