It's the way the RV industry operates....the late model year changes roll over to the beginning of the next model year, and then in 2018, they'll do the same thing. We bought a 2016 in June....2 days after it arrived at the dealer. By the end of the year, they had changed a half dozen major items that I would have loved to have had, however, we needed to upgrade when we did, or we would have not camped much last year at all. Damned if you do, damned if you don't. There will ALWAYS be changes that you like....if you get the newest one now, in 2018, they'll do the same thing.
