Awesome. I also got a quote of $76k for a 2016, I could not tell from the images if it was the 5 or 6 speed. Either way I want the 6-speed since why not! Congrats on your new rig, let me know how you like it. It is #1 on our list.

I was offered the '16 for $76K and the '17 for $79K. Went with '17 for resale value. We're having a great time after 4,300 miles in the first month!

Can you explain the difference that makes the 2017 roof design new? I didn't realized they changed the roof design.

A late-model 2016 is likely the same as a newer 2017, as product changes often occur during the production year. I believe some newer 2017s have an option to trade the coat closet and/or counter space for a residential-type refridgerator.

That would be the "X-Package". On the 2017, the package brings you:
  1. Removal of the vertical pantries to the right of the smaller refrigerator
  2. A residential 18-cf fridge
  3. 50-amp service
  4. 2nd AC in bedroom
  5. 5500w Genset
There are additional changes to the 2017s as well. See THIS post for a fairly complete list.

Finally, the most recent 2017 FR3 30DS has a flip-up counter extender at the edge of the kitchen counter next to the stairwell.

Thanks, Robert! I hadn't noticed that. Similar to the Georgetown roof, I suppose.
