No one will ever have a trailer just like yours. . You take the word custom to the extreme!
It is great though because people learn new ideas and you test them out. I imagine Reace has taken ideas like yours and made them standard if they work well and are cost effective.

If that is a compliment, thank you, I have had 7 trailers in 5 years, some were bad, some had good ideas. Thus my desire to incorporate them into the "Perfect Escape".

Jim,
I concur with the compliment.

We follow your ideas and make many notes from your changes and customization for when we order ours. Keep them coming.

I wonder if this cor-mat insulation can be added to the door of an existing 2013 trailer (17B) with the thermal option and how much it might cost. Or, how much a new door with this insulation would cost??

Sounds to me, "mat" being applied between inner/outer shells. Does your door have double paned glass?

I'm not sure Jim. All I remember is being told that my optional kitchen and bathroom windows were not double-paned.

Jim is THE guru, especially as I think through options for my 21. I was 90% sure I would get a mercedes diesel powered sprint motor home - until I met Jim and saw his 19.
Jim, I want to publicly thank you for being so generous with your time, knowledge, and experience.

Correct, the kitchen/bath optional opening windows are single pane, non insulating, but boy are they nice in the rain. In the winter I cut some foam and placed it in these windows for better insulation properties. The door window maybe double paned as "standard" I'm not sure. But any insulation around that door area would help in the cooler temperatures.
