Take a look at the exterior shots. The Lance windows seem to open a lot wider though, and the awning has the supports attached differently.

I think the famous 'cpa' member on here used to own one based on a thread I found on rv.net? Looks like they have always had the frameless windows, but didn't have the new awning style until the 2015 model year.
I think those are different Windows, the Lance ones look somewhat like the camplite version?

Definitely different windows and awning, but my point is that the STYLE of windows and awning has been out there in use for a while. There are some great pictures of the awning on the Lance site.

The only complaints I found were about the warnings against scratching the acrylic windows, which wouldn't even apply with the windows Escape will be using. Couldn't find any comments either way about the awning, but I didn't spend a lot of time on it so there might be some out there somewhere.

They were basically plastic windows, double paned, really light weight, but could open out 90 degrees with stops at 30/45/60. Tinted they had the interior screen/sunshade/nightshade set up. I had them on my Dutchman T@da in 2008, my 2009 Lance had the 12v awning and my 2012 Lance had the same windows and the 12v awning and the tankless water heater.

Jim mentioned in another thread (New kid in town....) that his Lance had moulded acrylic windows; these are top-hinged like Escape's new "frameless" style, but otherwise very different in materials and construction.

The awning on the Lance has a similar style of arm (folding in a horizontal plane), but is otherwise different: it has the roller on the moving outside edge and gas struts to push the awning open, while the Dometic awning has the roller in the case on the trailer and no gas struts obviously visible (although there must be some sort of spring pulling it open).

Looks like another window was added to the street side. And different exhaust for the frig. At least compared to the 19' photos currently on their site for the pre-2017 version.

How much longer till we see the other sizes?

Pretty exciting reveal!
I found some pictures of a similar looking Dometic awning and the supports appear to fold out of the housing.
I wonder about the degree of wind sensitivity, too light or not enough for example.
Also, is there a back-up plan if for whatever reason the motor quits or jams? Looks nice.

The built in medicine cabinet in the bathroom sounds great. Besides that, nothing here would make me switch, if it delayed me from getting a trailer. See you at the campground.

I asked Sarah at ETI a week or two ago if it would make a difference in the delivery time of our trailer if we stayed with the 2016 version or switched to the 2017 version. I was told it would not make a difference.
