i heard that the awning side arms for our Escapes are custom made. I'm thinking it might be hard to find ones that would fit our trailers.

Probably the reason why there is no automatic awning available for the curved trailers, Airstream included.

Don't know about the rails, if they used some with the feet, but this is certainly a much better look.

I really wanted the solar . I do have pre-solar already . I felt those rails were part of problem , couldn't flex . Maybe I'm nuts but that is what I felt . Maybe the solar is in my future now. Pat

Hi Cathy . The reason I didn't was because of the rails . I checked all over , installers,other trailer manufactures ,and the 4 feet were used .,actually if you buy yourself you get the 4 feet . I was told it had to be the rails . I think because your trailer flexes maybe besides looking better the 4 feet allow some flex to the panel , and if you had the rails no give, maybe the flexing caused it to loosen up . Then you get the wind going under panel goodbye panel . My theory only . Yours looks real nice though and sure would like to get it installed . Looking like a good possibility now . I am getting to old for all this work and because it is Escape trailer would prefer they install .Thankyou again for taking the time . Pat

The curved sides of the trailer body are a challenge. Escape uses an awning of a regular production design, but apparently with the arms (which are normally straight) custom-bent to fit. That's not possible with some other awning designs, but is a possibility for any design with arms that don't involve sliding or telescoping components. Replacement parts will be a challenge for any model, but especially those for which Escape has not already made arrangements.

Did a search - could not find the answer

Getting a 21' with HVAC and the stock MAXX FAN

can the MAXX FAN be left open, and not have any rain come inside?

On our casita we had to add something to keep rain out.

How does stock 21' with stock MAXX FAN setup work?

Thanks

Yes, you can have the Maxx Fan fully open in a downpour. Wind could potentially blow some fine mist from rain drops bouncing off the roof, but if you turn the fan to OUT they'll not likely make it to the interior. You can also open it part way, and lock it in that position.
Up here in BC, we have lots of experience with rain.
