will save the $500 difference until the lab rats report back....having said that it would be nice to have one frame-less in the rear of the trailer that would open..may ask ETI about that someday before 2017 rolls around.
...and being a lab rat for the new awnings will be enough excitement.
You always will have the Escape window which opens more then the frameless in the rear in the rear for the 19 . Not sure where for the 21 . Pat

Trailer: 2014 Escape 5.0 TA
Posts: 5,968
Ten Forward was the 10th 5.0TA off the line I'm 110% happy with my choice. I waited seven years for this build. I ordered the dual-pane slider windows. They work EXACTLY as I expected.

Anyone that's followed me on the all-molded-towable forums knows how I would LOVE to have a trailer with the old-fashioned Jalousie windows (NON-dual pane). Where I live, if it's raining (typical) the wind is also blowing. I am thoroughly happy (26 months later) with keeping the windows closed and opening two passive vents on the roof, turning on the MaxxFan and maybe opening the bathroom window (who cares if the bathroom gets wet... it was designed for THAT).

I made my choice, I hope you are as happy with yours!

We do close those windows if it rains hard and the wind blows a great deal, or just keep them open a crack.

In lighter rain, we can keep the awning window open quite a bit. (I also always run the fans for a few minutes when coming back to the trailer in the day, just in case that might help with any condensation.)
are awning windows a big upgrade in cost over the other styles? also mind snapping of a pic of it on your trailer, would love to see it

Between $1500 to $2100- Canadian dollar upgrade on the 19' Escape for 8 opening awning windows that are thermal also. Great deal, IMHO.

No, the thermal is a package for the entire trailer, either sliders or thermal awning windows, all around.

meant more like frameless in some spots and awning style in others. my old haggard trailer from 1976 had a sweet mix and match theme going, love it on hot days to open up all those awning windows and really let the air come through.

If I'd had the choice between the original windows or the new frameless when we built the trailer in 2015, I'd go with the frameless all the way. Awning style, and a MUCH cleaner look on the exterior.
