But the Dometic 9100 is not the new Escape awning. Escape is going with the 9500.

By the way, the 9100 looks like the type I have on my motorhome (one power, one manual); they work fine, not that that's relevant to an Escape.

What wears thin with me is people who are compelled to comment on most every post. Is there some kind of a contest for who has the most posts on this forum.
Participation is always voluntary, apathy causes stagnation anywhere, anyplace,anytime.

Escape does make a great product and their designs are based on some basic assumptions as to what options and features will satisfy a majority of potential owners. But those decisions do not in all cases satisfy the wants and needs of every owner. Every modification made to an Escape trailer by an owner is evidence that ETI is not satisfying the needs of that owner to some extent. On this forum we have seen a broad range of modifications from oversized exterior hatches, to custom interiors, to telescoping table pedestals, and more. Obviously, those owners felt that the decisions made by ETI did not meet their own requirements and they chose to change things up. I see nothing wrong with owners and potential owners questioning whether there are options available for alternative awnings, whether those alternatives may be installed by Escape or by someone else. Everyone has their own wants and needs and they are not always aligned with everyone else.

Thanks to everyone for their replies to my original questions, whether they tackled them or not. Now for some follow up comments/questions of mine, regarding some of those posts (which have been snipped).

I guess those of us wondering about the new stuff (or even older stuff) in the trailers haven't drank enough kool-aid.

I was recently reminded that you, yourself Jim B, recently started a thread where you acknowledged that it had been covered many times but you were still starting it as you wanted opinions on your decision or questions. I don't remember what it was for (u-shaped dinette maybe??) but nobody posted the dead horse icon or said that you shouldn't be asking those questions since they'd already been asked, answered and covered quite a bit.

As to accepting ETI's decisions - as someone else posted (and I reference in this reply), anyone who does modifications is not accepting ETI's decisions to some point. Aren't you making modifications to your new 2017 5.0TA? I guess that means you're not 100% accepting of their decisions.

Doug, do you also post this dead horse when the subject of beer or poutine or where to stay near ETI after getting your trailer shows up in threads? (There are plenty of other topics - those are just the 3 that came to mind readily.) All of those have been brought up over and over again, and yet those comments/questions are addressed respectfully. Why is a fairly new thread on the electric awning any different?

Well, good to know I'm not common! As my husband says "don't stop asking questions" and I don't plan to.

I think that we're all starting to get a bit too grumpy! I definitely think we need to go camping more!

Seems to us Reace would have done an astronomical amount of research before adjusting the very expensive trailer moulds to accommodate this Dometic awning . We'd be inclined to trust it completely rather than spend time researching alternatives . But that's us ...still loving what we have ....... consider ETI the very best and believe they pride themselves in choosing the best .

When I ordered my first Escape, there was just one page of options, now there are 3 pages on the build sheet, that tells me Escape is listening and offering 200% more in options. The ones they offer is their decision, based upon their capability. if you wish to change something that is your decision. We all purchase new cars and then add floor mats or seat covers or decals and even after market mirrors, that does not denigrate the manufacturer nor your decision to purchase. If you can please 95% of your customers then you have done your research, the other 5% will either accept or go elsewhere. With a year of backlog, I'm sure Escape is focusing their effort so that the built up demand can be processed.
