Extra tail lights

Does anyone have a picture of the extra tail/brakes lights that are in the horizontal
position?
Trying to decide which is more pleasing to my eye!

Vicki, that was a question I had. I'm getting the "Bike Ready Rack." Which is a receiver hitch on the rear below the spare. So, remembering that you don't what bike wheels to block the brake/turn lights, I asked. Back in the day, Escape would mount vertical lights next to the rear window (brake/turn an option) to take care of the issue... because the above the window lights... were not really lights but reflectors. On the 21' the three long LEDs are left side (brake/turn), far right (brake/turn). So... those extra lights are no longer needed. AND, I'm expecting my new 5er to follow the same pattern...

Yeah, I'm still thinking this is a question that needs to be answered by Escape Trailer Industries. I'm STILL expecting my new 5er to be built the same as the 21' (entrance door back) on my 5er build and those rear reflectors on the 19' are now lights on the 21'. YO Jim... let us know, please when your 21 foot is delivered!

Those are not reflectors on the 19. Everything is LED ights. On the photo on the trailer they are all lite up. Dave had our 19 plugged into his truck so lights, brakes, and turn signals all worked while he was towing.

It comes down to how Escape does it. There is room on the 19 to mount them next to the window. If you look close, the mold around the window has enough room for the tail lights to be mounted. There may not be room on the 21 or 5TA because of a different size window or something. Tammy explained to me that is why they are horizontal in the 17.

Yeah, but WHERE are those lights? This is from the 19' Escape brochure. On the 21' Escape the brake/turn signals are across the top...

Either way it looks like Christmas back there.
