Thanks. Yes, mine does have a G so it is definitely a 2016. How do I know if they changed any features/specs?

Early new model year builds generally vary little from the prior model year. Not being flippant at all - but what you see if going to be your biggest indicator of any changes where trailer campers are concerned.

What's even crazier is they make increment changes throughout the year!

Our 5er for example:

2014 (Released mid 2013): Island cabinet doors open on Refer side
2014.1 (Released late 2013): Island cabinets open on Door side, laundry chute in bathroom sink cabinet, TV bracket added to basement [this is our unit]

2015 (Released in 2014 & on display in Goshen) Cover added to laundry chute, outside door added to access dead space under entertainment system (Odd ...I had mentioned these mods I made to a senior Rockwood rep at a RV show in January 2014 )

They also enclosed the end of the counter by the stairs "for aesthetic reasons" (HOWEVER, this is where most put a trash can!) Brian and I mentioned to the Rockwood rep how this was a bonehead idea

2015.1 (Late 2014 & viewed at a RV show in Dec): The end of the counter next to the stairs returned to not being enclosed

All I saw different from other 2015 was the battery disconnect on the tongue.

I looked at a 2104S on a lot yesterday and it was a 2016. Nothing really different. But I have noticed some pictures of 2016's on the web and looks like the dinette fabric is different. Looks like they are using the same thing as on the Murphy couch.

They do change things many times mid year. I recall them adding tank monitoring to my pop up that was not in earlier 2015 models.
