2014 Silverbacks

Has anyone seen the 2014 Silverbacks? From everything I have seen online it appears to me that the drivers side slide no longer has a cathedral ceiling! The other two slides still have the cathedral ceilings? Am I looking at the info correctly and if I am, why the design change!

You are looking at it correctly. Not sure why they changed. I like it on all slides and I am glad I bought mine when I did. I like the bathroom change but hate the sink with the side faucet. I think they could have done that better

Ive got a 2014 Silverback and I bought it before the change and I'm glad I did, the only thing I like in the newer one is the bigger shower. I do not like the sink and the smaller cabinet space in the bathroom. Also to get the sink in they had to put a bump out in the bedroom that took away a lot of room.

I think the Silverback should have stayed grey, it looks like a Silverback.

I have no idea why they took out the cathedral ceiling on the driver's side in the living area. Being slightly OCD I don't think I could handle having one slideoout with the cathedral ceiling and one flat.

I think I'm in a minority, but I like the new color. But then my Silverback is white and not grey.

Also looking at the mfgr's online spec's it appears that the front landing legs are now hydraulic and the 6 pt. level up system is an option! Maybe I should have waited 1 more year.

Yes the front landing gear is hydraulic and at the dealer in Winnipeg it's a $6000 option. Probably less if ordered right from the factory.

I was at my dealer a couple of weeks ago and 2 of the 4 2014's did not have the cathedral slide in the living area.

I just ordered my 2014 37BH and it has cathedral slides all around? I did order it with the 6 point leveling but I don't think it cost 6k. more like 2k.

Really like the new 29IK but why is it over 1000 lbs heavier empty than the 29RE with over 400 of that on the pin? It looks exactly the same except for the island sink and a small pantry.
