While Team Trillium (and perhaps TrilliumRV) has gone to stacked tongue tubes, the traditional bent design can
be done properly, and work perfectly well. Obviously, the original Trillium bends were not that company's finest work. The Escape
trailers I've seen have very nicely executed bends which would not concern me at all. I suppose it depends on whether your fabricator is good at tube bending, or good at forming an extra pair of extensive welded joints.
