Looks great Rease!
I notice you don't have a box awning on either, does this mean you found another supplier to bend the "arms" for the awning?

Rob, what they did was to eliminate the top bend, which was the one they were unable to do themselves (the outside track on the arm), by slightly lowering the top mount. It looks good. Tammy is the one who gets credit for the idea though.

Also, if I remember right, the 17 footers are now made in a brand new mold that allows roof a/c. 15 footer still to come. They have been very busy.

From the FAQ on the Escape Trailer website:
[b]Can you install a roof-mount air conditioner?

As of January 1 2009, [b]all Escape trailers will accept a roofmount air conditioner (even the 13'!). We use a low profile Carrier unit rated at 13,500 BTU.

To add to what Donna posted, they facilitate the A/C mounting by using an additional saddle to give the support for the added weight on the roof.

With regard to the awning, I (for one) to not like that bulky looking awning assembly. I would tend to see IF it could be deleted (in the build stage) and opt for the ol 'bag with rail' awning with the top rail mounted at build time to hide the rivits on the inside of the trailer. This awning (IMHO) makes for a cleaner, less bulky 'look'. I also believe that, especially inn the smaller size trailer) this new awning stands out more. The bag awning itself can also be easily removed/stored at owners whim.

Doug, I am sure that the drip rail only could be installed from the factory should you wish to use the bag type awning. I am sure Reace could answer that. I do agree they would be sleeker and simpler looking, but after using one for many years on a tent trailer, I do like the rigidity and ease of setup of the roll out kind. That, and in windy areas they are way less stable.

the 17's now have a new mold, you can look it up on the escape forum (December 2008).

Hi: Doug... I was quite intimidated by the awning at first, but when I figured it out it is a breeze compared to a rope and pole awning. I don't know about a bag awning tho!!!

The 13' is absolutely cute as cute can be, and beautiful inside with the Escape all wood cabinets. Looks just like a minature of the 17'. Like all 13' FGRVs - it is a little egg on wheels, with a touch of BC class!
If I were single and shorter........this would be my dream trailer. Alas, tall and happily married I'm glad there is the 17'!
