Just curious -- Is the Lance awning the same one that we are discussing here? I took a look at Lance TT's a month ago and the (undeployed) awning didn't look quite the same. It also don't think it was motorized on the 1475, but I didn't look that closely.

I don't remember seeing any complaints about the Lance awning on Lanceowners.

To clarify a little more, in 30+ years and this is number 3 same type awning ,never had it unroll . You use straps on arms . You also make sure the knobs are cinched . The changes we don't care for ,the door have had those on previous RV 's , really like the door and screen on our trailer now . Won't comment on windows because now you can still get what we currently have .The body to us looks like a big white box with no personality . To us these are big changes . We are glad we have our trailer as is . As for posters questioning components, why can't they ? Why do some think only their opinions and posts count ? I see that as a form of bullying . Thank goodness we all don't think a like ,or want the same things . Myself I want information and check things out myself , then I make my decision . Pat

Ours started to unfurl at the back end on our maiden voyage. Everything was tight, but it happened and we were very lucky. Advise all use velcro straps wrapped through the upper mount to help prevent this from happening. Also, Reace suugested we always pull on the black pull strap to double check it is locked before rolling.

Belts and suspenders! I use Velcro One Wrap just as you described. Works fine. I also used the Velcro One Wrap around the Dometic case awning on my Scamp. Case awnings are NOT impervious to unfurling. Case awning straps are one of Larry Gamble's biggest sellers on the Little House Customs site... for a reason.

I still think that the front window looks strange. Too small. Rear window is spot on.

I have to agree with you on the older look... I like the older style awning and the support arms seems a little sturdier to me, not so keen on the new one !

This thread is so long,with good discussion, that by the time I finished reading it the new body style is beginning to grow on me.

Are you thinking of getting the 21 ? You can as a option get the small window in front . The 19 if you are thinking of getting has the larger window centered in front . Pat
