Reace can confirm, but I'm sure that this is an off-the-shelf RV door. The big advantage of going to flat is being able to use ready-made components like this.

The new style is nicely done, but from a purely aesthetic viewpoint, I think I like the classic Trillium/Escape style better, too.

Electric awning?
LED lighting is available from Dometic. Reace can tell us whether this will be standard, optional, or not available... presumably in the feature and option list to come.

When I did a Google search for Dometic case awning arms, I saw some images of what look like add-on bracing arms used with this design of awning. Adding braces and turning off the auto-retract might be possible.

I like what I'm seeing so far. I like the new awning, the lack of side support arms allows for easier access around the side of the trailer. Can't wait for the 21 photos and the full list of standard and options available.

Advantage in lowering production costs perhaps. Would be interesting to know the take rate of the "Classic" design vs. new if 2017 model if customers were given a choice.

Like the clean passenger side view without the awning arms.

According to Dometic, the awning lights are in the extended part vs the body, should help with bugs. Also neither refer have fans.
