2013 cruise lite 281bqxl vs 2014 same model different year.

At the dealership I was told the rig was a new 2013 salem cruise lite and am almost 100% certain I saw the sticker that reflects that. After getting the sales contract and work due paperwork home I realized that all the dates say 2014 for year, but the model is unchanged. ..

Do I need to go back to the dealer for correction and/or clarification or is no harm done between new 2013 and new 2014?

You should be able to tell by the camper's VIN. The 10th digit is for year...A is for 2010, therefore 2013 is D, 2014 is E. Most manufacturers change the model year mid March without any major changes as they usually occur later in the model year or as running changes throughout the year.

If it's a 2014, you've reduced your depreciation by one year!

That definitely did the trick. I'm not sure why it was listed, posted and verbally sold as a 2013, but it's definitely a 2014! Yay me... I think

Inspection, hitch package and delivery all tomorrow afternoon. We've wasted no time and planned our first trip Friday for 4 days in Northern AZ!

Thank you for the help, Dave!
