21fbrs questions

I have been looking at 2017 models on rv trader. On a couple units on there they have upgraded counter tops like corrian and behind the toilet there is a linen closet. Also the front window on these doesn't have the cover over it and looks like the Windows on the side of the unit. Has there been a design change or have they changed the model midyear ? The features look really nice and some of the 2017's we have been looking at do not have these features. I was just wondering if anyone on here knew the answer. I plan on contacting the factory. Thanks for any help.

Update the factory contacted me. The features I saw on the unit on rv trader are late model year changes. These will be on future units and supposedly no increase in price.

we just bought one first trip starts tomorrow, the front window not having a cover kinda concerns me, rock from a big truck or something would not be good, also if you like it dark in the early mornings it ain't gona happen. we bought artist foamboard in black to cover the window so we can sleep in. but the corin counter top is beautiful, and the one we got must have had their best workers building it, i have had it for a week and spent a lot of time in it and have yet to find anything wrong. fit and finish is far above the last TT we had.

ID:	118295countertops, linen closets and even the front window. The lack of cover concerned me at first, but I'm a fan now. We can look up and see the stars while in bed! The cover would have blocked that.

Did your new units come with the 5/8 plywood floor? That is a change that is suppose to be happening also.

Just a guess but I would bet they removed the front cover on the window to give a much more spacious appearance when inside. Good looking rig.

The glass is tempered. I'm hoping it last like a windshield. I hope I didn't jinx myself and get a rock on the way home!
