New Models

When are the new models introduced to the public for sale and the factory switches over to the next year models?

We've decided on the model we want and are about ready to "pull the trigger".

Thanks for the help.

Could you narrow down the category just a bit - pup, hybrid, TT, TH, 5er, MH?

I ordered a 2012 Roo 19 at the very end of Nov 2011 and it arrived at the dealer on Jan 17th, so if it's on their website I'd say it's currently a production model.

I've been trying to figure that out for about 5 years!!

There doesn't seem to be any reason or consistency to it. I've seen "next year" sold in the spring of "this year". I've seen the "same year" have running changes that are significant.

Bottom Line: I don't think anyone can predict what they might do . . .

I seem to recall that the manufacturer's make the year change in March or April. As mentioned above, models changes, decor, etc. seem to change whenever...including major changes.

I think someone who has that trailer should be able to tell you when they change. The Rockwood Roo/Flagstaff Shamrock changes last year happened in late winter and in July.

I ordered mine in March and there were small changes such as an enclosed cabinet that used to be open for a TV and they moved the radio to another spot. I recall the website reflected these changes.

However, the biggest changes in my model occurred in the summer and surprised (happily, I think) quite a few people because the website did not reflect these changes.

If ordering a '12 now, its very possible that get a 2013.
