If anything pushes me one way or the other, it's the frameless windows: nope! Lousy air circulation.
Gregg , looks like I won't feel left out then about the windows . Pat

Wasn't it posted somewhere that they weren't sure when the new trailer molds will be done and available for customers? Have customers getting one completed in July been told they could switch to the 2017 model?

I'm wondering how much is involved with switching body shapes. Do they need to get approval from various Canadian and US government agencies since they'll be hauled down the road? I can well imagine that taking time and multiple headaches. Or the Canadian authorities saying "yes" and US saying "no". Oh joy!

I did see that electric awnings was posted, but missed seeing something about the steps.

Boy, it's gonna be fun for ETI when the new features are released as some folks might want some of them on their 2016 trailer style (such as the new kitchen faucet).

I had frameless windows on my T@Da and my Lance trailers, loved them. They were Dometic acrylic windows, double paned with built in screen,solar shade. No metal, no cold frames, no condensation, no dagger blind knobs. They could open 90/45/15 degrees and let a lot more air than the standard Hehr windows which only slide open 35%. In addition they are also awning style and we all know what that means, can be used in the rain. One more advantage, no more black streaks down the side of the trailer.

In reading Reace's posts 2017 Info I do not think you can mix options, new and old. if you want the new options your price will increase and you will have the 2017 model or you can stay with the current options in the 2016 models.

Special cleaner for the acrylic . Can't just use windex or anything that will scratch . Pat

And I hated them. Tempermental mechanism that broke several times, difficulty obtaining parts, and very easy to scratch. I strongly prefer what I have now.
