What's new for 2016?

Hey there everyone, just looking to get some input as to what changes we might be seeing with the new 2016s. Family and I are looking at ordering a 3170 this spring.
We previously had a 2013 3170, loved it but with 3 kids and 2 dogs we moved to a TT thinking we really needed the extra interior space. Now we are missing our 3170. Just found we spent so much time outside and that the extra room on rainy days couldn't compensate for missing the sunseeker! Having had both we just prefer all the advantages of a MH over a TT. (Whole 'nother thread there...)
So to the questions at hand:
1. Anyone know what the differences are between the 2015 and 2016s? (We have seen a couple of 2015s but our local dealer is unsure of what might have changed.)
2. Anyone out there have the twin bunk/TV setup vs. The traditional over cab bunk? And what are your thoughts?

Thanks for the help!

One more Q... what do people think of the outdoor grill option? Anyone have/use one - what are your thoughts?

We have the outdoor grill on our 2300. We use it all the time. Even if the grill that comes with it is not to your liking, ordering the option gets you a connection on the side of the MH that can be used with other grills also. This is our third, and likely last, year with the original grill. It is starting to show wear. But whatever we buy to replace it, we will have the gas connection already.

If I ever get another 3170, I don't want a grill. I don't want an outdoor TV. I want the storage space. By the way, three TV's in an RV is a bit pretentious when one is a solo. But I have found that I do use the third TV! It's across from the computer desk. I hope this option is still available as I will probably trade in a couple years.... I love the 3170.
