Silverback 2017 Model Changes

I have been considering the Hathaway Edition models and have the expected changes for 2017. HOWEVER, now we have moved our focus to the Silverback 37MBH. Does anyone know of any design changes or additional options for the Silverback models?

I know of the front cap fad issue and hope at a minimum they will move to a fully painted front cap. Anything else?? Thanks.

They HAVE fixed the cap issue on the new units. The conversation rolls as the existing owners seek relief vs paying out of pocket on a known issue.

Cannot address other changes.

I will say, FR Cedar Creek has met my expectations on service as a mass producer of RV's. They stepped up for me on several issues.

Just got a call from Angie O. at the CC factory with the changes for 2017.

New floor plan 35IK. Still no specifications listed on the website and she said she would check into why that info has not been posted. And stated that getting updates to the web is an ongoing problem with FR.

Other changes;
updated counter tops
different Fireplace
bathroom backsplash
sofe upgraded to 80"
different vinyl flooring

I'm impressed with Cedar Creeks response. I sent an email last night and got a phone call at 7:45 a.m. today. Now that is customer service.

Not sure of hitch weight...as you are correct still no specs shared and none provided with our purchase. We found 21000 pounds on another dealers site. Length from hitch to back bumper is per same dealer site posted as 39'6".

21,000# ???? If you're talking fiver weight, you'd better be looking for lead weights affixed to the underside of your fiver and remove them ASAP. 2,100# hitch weight maybe??
