We got the first production pictures of our 2017 5.0TA today. Couldn't be more excited. Can't wait for more pictures. So glad we decided to wait for the 2017.

Donna, maybe give some advice how to post pics? I know I had a hard time figuring out how to.

Are the two hatches under the front nose the standard configuration? Has this changed from the 2016 model? Is there a shelf between the two compartments? The propane tanks are in the bottom and the top is open for storage, correct?

Thank much.

Thomas, this is exactly what they had before. You are right on the configuration too. Propane has to be in its own compartment, sealed from the rest of the trailer.

This lends to one thing I personally like about the 5.0 over the other models that gives it a cleaner look, is there are no bottles and storage box detracting from the look, though the other models still look fantastic in their own right. I might just be a little biased though.

My name is Jim, and I am getting very excited.

Don't get me wrong this new mold looks fantastic and I would buy one, but for some reason I miss the lower ridge in the mold along the sides and the curved door.

I think it just takes time. I know at first I missed it too, but now I am loving the look of the new models. New or Classic, they are all great trailers.

If we were upgrading really like the look of the fifth wheel . It doesn't look so boxy ,( sorry ),like the others 19 and 21 . Just can't get use to their look when it hits my eyes . I would really miss the Classic look and our airplane door . But the fifth wheel really looks nice and we could go for it with a Fiamma awning . But we are loving the one we are with . Pat

Is the isle wider? I recall seeing a classic 5.0TA and the bathroom was out into the isle more than the rest of the cabinetry. On this model it all seems to be flush. Curious of isle width classic vs new? Thanks!
