Yes, I'm sure it's something structural. Possibly the awning as you mentioned or maybe the straight sides of the new design provide less rigidity. In any case, was thinking about taking up pole dancing anyway. ��
Yes Carl the straight sides could be another reason besides the awning . Now I am going to have to hide my eye's . It really doesn't look bad at all . Pat
This is just me speculating, but my guess is that with the classic 19’, the curve of the main door combined with the vertical framing for the screen just inboard, created kind of a truss situation. With the new straight door, there is not as much structural strength because one doesn’t have an arch. Hence the need for the pole.
Very possible Arnie . Makes sense. I just like how it looks like ,Ron says the trailer is very nautical . I didn't like that I had a little movement on ends of cabinet and not so on driver's side , solid .Just the ends of cabinet at doorway if I grabbed there .I wanted more support . They were putting in poles in 21 's Classic's . Don't know about 5 TA 's Classic's . Ok ,I felt left out when I saw the poles . So that was my reasoning . Pat
1. Stripper pole and Stooge table coined by a moderator.
2. Pole is needed on all Gen 1 19's IMO as the upper cabinets can cause stress in FG on roof.
3. Am 6'2 and have never had a problem exiting trailer.
Last year when Reace showed me the trailer he called it a "stripper pole." I guess that might bother some people. I thought it was kinda funny. And yes I'm only 5.9 and I hit my head especially the first few weeks of use (slow learner). So I'm looking at padding that area as well as I've no "protection" on my head...
