The posted Standard Feature List and Options only pertain to the 19'. We are still working on the other sizes and will post them as they become available.

The newly offered Americana fridges do not come standard with an external fan. For those customers in hot climates, the additional fan will help keep the fridge operating normally.

That's almost a relief! I was ready to trade trailers almost as often as cpaharley.

The front storage box should look better if the bottom half is wider.

What, you're not going out to pick it up? You mentioned earlier you were hoping to get it in time for the Mississippi River rally.

Rate jumped up 2 points today so that would be $28,769.64 USD today.

For the 2017 models, we are also changing the material used for the extra insulation. I can't provide an R value, however in our tests, the new product has 2.5 times better insulating value than the currently used reflectix. Unfortunately this product cannot be used in the older model as some modifications were necessary to make everything fit.

Oh now, this is good to know! On both counts. Thanks for this info.

I really like the better insulation on the 2017. That will benefit folks both north and south.

That is a huge plus, especially for our southern california and arizona desert camp outs and occasional baja adventure! I think the worm has turned for us

I like that both styles of double-pane windows are options. That should keep everyone happy

Were any improvements made to the cabinetry? How about changes to the standard upholstery, counter top, and flooring? When should we expect interior pics (even if only for the medicine cabinet)?

Also, what is the new insulation material? And has dry weight been affected much by the changes?

I had asked ETI that and just got a reply back that they don't know when the interior will be completed. One would hope by April 1st, though!

I had asked about seeing the two versions and was told the display models would be sold as soon as the new version is ready for display. Hopefully I can scamper up the next day after they announce the interior has been completed on at least the 19. I promise to take lots of photos!

Do you have any extra insulation? Being in Texas ,do we need it. We don't camp generally in hot or cold. That being said, we will travel into cold areas and Texas gets hot. It's pretty expensive if not necessary for our use.

Insulation insulates for hot as well as cold so, yes, you need it in Texas. Someone at Escape says the foam on the underbelly really insulates well to keep heat out.

The option of extra insulation as well as foam not only helps in cold, but also in warm weather plus sound deadening, keeps the trailer a lot more quiet during those "rest stop" naps.
