News from ETI for changes in 2019

My husband and I are waiting for 2019 production dates to purchase a 5.0 TA.
I've been following the Escape Industries website and noticed that they have just released some news about some changes to their trailers starting in 2019.
The Dometic power awning is being replaced by the Carefree Fiesta manual awning and the frameless thermal windows will no longer be offered as an option. They will be offering framed thermal windows as an upgrade instead.
I'm interested to get the opinions of Escape trailer owners about these changes ... Good or bad.

Thanks.
Frankly, when we recently looked at a 2017 Escape 5.0 TA the awning and windows caused us a bit of concern. We didn't like the fact that the awning didn't tilt down and were also concerned with the lack of airflow and overall durability of the frameless windows.
So ... I supposed the company has resolved those issues for us.

Just a note that you don't have to wait until 2019 for these options. Escape will install these two items on your 2018 trailer if you were to take the final few completion dates.

According to the current Escape's website, the only change for 2019 will be the choice of awning, power or manual. The previous frameless window deletion change is no longer mentioned and the power awning is now an option. So, in reality the option of the manual awning is available is the current 2019 change.

Thats what Id like to see. A permanent rear bed and and in the front a bench seat running along the long side wall and another across the front. You supply the detached table. Simple ,no?
