Spotted this info today, under the 5er Products page:

The new Fifthwheel will be 8" wider, 8" longer and 5" taller. As you may have already assumed it will also be Tandem Axle. The Standard Features will be the same however, there will be a few additions such as the 6.7cuft fridge, 2 LED Captains Reading Lights over the Bed, and the additional window over the sink. Please note this trailer will not have a U-Shaped Dinette.

Oh dear... well, it would certainly help me make the decision whether or not to get striped upholstery fabric on all the cushions.
Is the U shaped an option?

You may want to verify that with Escape before throwing in the towel, so to speak.

I have to admit that I didn't realize what a good deal Escape had on their vinyl so got quite the sticker shock when the bill came in for my choice. But it's done and I'm kind of glad I didn't know at the time.

When I ordered my Escape 17B, I purchased my own vinyl and brought it to Escape to install. The only requirement was it had to be a full glue-down vinyl. Yes it's usually more costly because of quantity - Vinyl is manufactured in 12' widths so you have to buy more than you'll actually use. (I have a nice chunk left over that would probably be enough to do someones bathroom - or redo the Escape down the road when it wears - if I don't get tired of it) . Escape orders theirs in large quantities so they get a much better deal plus they cut it as they need it so have very little waste.

I picked a neutral color with a faint graphic pattern in it - makes the floor space look so much larger.

It's great having these options because you can make your trailer as unique as you want - or don't!
