'tis the car with the 5.0TA too. The only anomaly is that with the slider style you can get single pain venting windows in the loft.

As of a couple hours ago (when I checked them all), the Escape website says this applies to all models.

Yeah, it's been that way for a while, I think. Yeah, weird, huh?

The way pricing is right now, people that are dubbing between a 19 or 21 are almost better off going with the 21 price wise. Hardly any difference. Quite some option that are not included in the 19 are included in the 21.
But yeah, you have to love the lay out....

Window opening size is not the sole factor used when determining window ventilation . Window design has a large effect. An awning and a casement window are basically the same window just oriented differently. Casement windows allows much better air flow than an awning window . The assumption that because the new frame less , thermopane windows that Escape is now using has a larger ventillation opening , that ventillation will automatically improve is a false assumption

The new awning windows can be used in the rain and left open in case of rain. In addition, there are not any more black streaks caused by the putty around the frames, a cleaner, sleeker looking Escape.

anyone know of a trailer manufacturer other than Escape that makes a single hull molded fiberglass trailer that uses frameless windows..HEHR windows or other mfg?

all this camper can find is Escape who has only been making this configuration for a few months....so if that is true the "design" is currently being tested on the early adopters.
ain't saying its bad, but it does appear to be an unproven "design" or an "application" in a single hull fiberglass trailer!
