Question Photo no valance? Photo black fabric valance?

Hi all

2017 21' on order

Can someone please post a photo of

Photo no valance?

Photo black fabric valance?

We will probably go with the stock 2017 fabric, but I do NOT like the look of that pattern on the valance.

Thanks.

Los Angeles

Not sure if this is any help or not. My 2008 didn't come with valance.

Easy to make Glenn. A few pieces of MDF, fabric and staples. Just saying.

I have no plans to make valances. I didn't know I didn't have them until people started posting about them. Had to look them up on Wiki.

that is a big help - thanks. :-)

I assume the 2016 (2017?) stock blinds are similar, overall, to yours?

any guesses?

I've given up advising of anything. My trailer is almost eight years old and there have been many changes. The 19, 21 and 5.0 TA didn't exist when I bought my trailer.
I bought my trailer for camping...

We have black valances in our trailer.
I have some photos without the valances in place but none with them all installed.
One of the attached photos has one small black valance on the drivers side front.
I now have the trailer parked at home and can take a photo tomorrow to match the ones without valances.

Ordered our trailer without valances. Seeing your pictures, glad we did. Makes it look so much more roomier.

They can always be removed if you get them and don't like them.
One small screw hole at each end of the valance

I like how they tie in nicely with the black window frames.

Yeah, but there's nothing wrong with changing your trailer around to your likes and making it your own with different touches. It can still be used for camping.

For sure. I too own a trailer for the purpose of camping and travelling with. BUT, I also get great enjoyment out of the planning stage, and being able to make those changes that suit our individual needs. The two can go hand in hand.

I don't share near as much of my thinking that many do, as it is personal to me and others likely don't care too much, plus it would take pages upon pages to describe my ideas. Of course, I too am sometimes looking for an idea to fit the bill with some aspect I am working on, especially that in the area of electronics which is a weak area for me.

The desire to camp and travel via trailer is what prompted me to buy a stickie for this year, as I await the new 2017 5,0 TA to be ready for production.
