They look great given the circumstances Steve. Thanks for getting them and posting them.

New '17 17 looks so much cleaner.

Most definitely! I do think the door needs a coat of paint to match though.

Thanks you so much Steve! Glad you had a safe drive. And Tammy for giving the Green light. The roof almost looks flatter for solar panel front and back. Hard to tell. Rain lip above the door, super nice. Those back windows looked hinged at the top, maybe both are emergency exits?

Cleaner, or plainer... whatever suits your tastes. Functionality matters more to me anyway, and the design update is more functional.

I am hearing a custom item for Jim's 2017 5.0TA... a painted door?

I agree. It would be nice if someone were to get an overhead view, to see what has happened with the traditional raised centre section; I wouldn't be surprised if it is completely gone, as part of tying in the awning housing.

Methinks it would be a good idea for all trailers. Maybe Escape could order them to match the gelcoat.

If these are the generic doors on other trailers they are not molded fiberglass like the old style but panel doors with a filon or a thin sheet of fiberglass on the exterior. I do not think paint is an option.

There would be no problem at all painting. You can paint just about any surface you want. Both fibreglass and filon are very often painted.
