Reace can confirm, but I'm sure that this is an off-the-shelf RV door. The big advantage of going to flat is being able to use ready-made components like this.

The new style is nicely done, but from a purely aesthetic viewpoint, I think I like the classic Trillium/Escape style better, too.

LED lighting is available from Dometic. Reace can tell us whether this will be standard, optional, or not available... presumably in the feature and option list to come.

When I did a Google search for Dometic case awning arms, I saw some images of what look like add-on bracing arms used with this design of awning. Adding braces and turning off the auto-retract might be possible.

I like what I'm seeing so far. I like the new awning, the lack of side support arms allows for easier access around the side of the trailer. Can't wait for the 21 photos and the full list of standard and options available.

Advantage in lowering production costs perhaps. Would be interesting to know the take rate of the "Classic" design vs. new if 2017 model if customers were given a choice.

Like the clean passenger side view without the awning arms.

According to Dometic, the awning lights are in the extended part vs the body, should help with bugs. Also neither refer have fans.

I did this as fast as I could, so it's not perfect. Myron's 19 featured as the top photo, new 19' model at the bottom.

Thanks Donna! I like the larger rear window in the 19 classic.

Looks fantastic. Is this a floor model? If so, can I buy it? [emoji6]

Well, have to see a bit more to really evaluate, but at first glance for me I much prefer the lines and look of the classic. The new look is fine so don't pile on, just saying at a first glance for me personally, it's the classic. Need to see more on the frameless Windows, but I don't like the look of them in the pic where they are opened. The awning is interesting in a gimmicky kind of way, but in the pic where it is extended something just seems off to me with how it looks in scale with the trailer. May just be the early pics and angle of the shot. Again, a lot more info needed, but some folks with 2016 orders are going to have some interesting decisions to make.

I was wondering whether a new door was in the works - while I like the classic door and separate screen, it is really hard to get the curved door sealed well (I can always see a little daylight).

Love the look of the new awning!

I especially like the new awning, in that it need not be fully extended when there isn't room for it or if conditions are too windy.

But, otherwise, we are loving our now 6-months old 21; no upgrade required.
