I think this is really exciting. Nice to see Escape continuing to improve their products. It is a minor thing but I hope there are some flat spots for the tail lights and brake lights so any issues with leaking lights could be eliminated. Maybe a flat spot on the roof or some way to better mount the solar panels. Maybe an integrated storage box. Lots of possibilities, and I am anxious to see what is unveiled. I love our 21, but if the new model has some nice upgrades I might have to start sweet talking my dear wife. .

Once the 2017 model is available for production, you can opt for the 2017 design without loosing your 2016 production spot.

Boy as if waiting for your trailer wasn't exciting enough before now there is another decision to make.

My 2016 is pretty much done and about to be delivered..... Wouldn't trade it though, it has been many years in the making.

Great news for Escape and the updates show they are constantly improving on their already awesome product.

My wife has said though she would sell our 21 in a minute without my knowledge for a bigger 5th wheel.

We are in the same group. Retiring soon and like Glenn wrote when he was in early retirement .... He started counting sheets of toilet paper.

We won't be upgrading any time soon. Just like we are happy with the Apple Products we have. Just because apple rolls out a new iPhone I don't need to change anything that is working the way I want it to and more than fits my needs. Of course I'll still check out whatever new product Escape or Apple comes out with. But I'm going to resist lusting after the new and thereby loosing joy with what I have now.

I already have a Ford Escape to go with my 17B Escape!!
Too bad Ford went and changed their engines etc etc and no longer is usable for a tow vehicle...

Very well put Larry, my sentiments too.
Love our Apple products and our Escape trailer.

I'm getting a new 5.0TA, and once I am done with it, you can put me in the poor folk category too.

If you haven't already looked, the new prices are on their site. $4K more for the 17A, which is the model I've been considering.
