It is normal (among most brands, not just Escape) to use the same opening for an air conditioner as for a vent, and to have the same openings (number, size, and position) whether or not an air conditioner is installed. That's not the same as having the same structure.

The question is not about the opening, it's about whether or not is has appropriate...

But I agree with this:

I forgot to add that Houdini is wired for TV and for A/C.
So then, will we be doing our 6 year reunion at the Escape Rally? Would be great to see you guys again.

Jenny and Ian picked up their 19 one day before Lisa and I did, and we camped together at the Fort Langley Rally that weekend. Met a few other Escapees there too. Our dog, Jasper, was under a year old then, an on his first big road trip.

I haven't been able to talk to Reace and confirm. So I believe you are correct and in any event A/C can be added.
Just to confirm this information. Received a quote from ETI regarding retro-fitting A/C. There is one price. $875.00 plus taxes. The other price is Urban Myth.

Thank you for your interest in our camper.
I sent an e-mail to the address you added but it bounced back, so sent a PM.
I don't see a way to attach a photo there, so I will attach one of the outside here. This photo was before the trailer was waxed and in the rain(!) - now it is very shiny and clean! Unless we are camping, it is always stored under cover, so we hope it stays that way!
Let me know if you have other questions.

We have just spoken to Reace about the 'A/C ready' feature of our 19. Apparently, as our 19 now stands, it is not immediately A/C ready. In the early models they did indeed run a 12/2 wire to the vent area where the A/C would be located. But now, to install an A/C unit, it requires a shroud on the roof to support the unit. In the newer models they run a wire to make them A/C ready too, but the shroud is now part of the mold. Reace viewed the photos we sent today of our camper roof and said that indeed an A/C unit can be installed, but it would require the installation of a shroud and the repositioning of the solar panel. Reace would do the installation of an air conditioner and move the solar panel for a total cost of $975 Canadian. If someone is interested in doing it somewhere other than at the ETI factory, he can send explicit instructions for so doing.

Sorry to keep butting into this classified ad and for anyone that knows, does the shroud comprise an approximately 1" raised (or thicker portion) of the roof in the area of the rear vent? If so then it would seem our 2010 5.0 is more A/C ready than Eddys 2009 19. Just not sure.
