2016 21ss changes

Hello, first post here

Just picked up our 2016 21ss on Tuesday. There are a few changes from the first run of 2016's. First the bathroom now has a curved glass door for the shower instead of a curtain. The wardrobe closet next to the bathroom now faces the front of the trailer, the previous ones faced the bathroom. The TV, radio, antenna jack ect. were originally mounted on the side wall next to the front bunk with a small counter top with drawers in front of it. Now there is a wall in front of the bunk that goes to the ceiling with the TV and radio facing kitchen area, all cable connections and outlets are now hidden behind cabinet doors. You can now longer watch TV from the front bunk. This TV with bracket is suppose to be movable to the outside of the camper however the electric cord for the TV is run behind the wall to an outlet in the cabinet, don't know how you will fish the wire back through the cabinet once you pull it out. The dinette and sofa have switched places. As soon as you walk in the door you see the dinette and the sofa is by the bathroom. We ordered the hide-a-bed option and found out upon delivery that Forest River no longer includes the air mattress, as a matter of fact there is no mattress just a little foam with springs and a sheet of black cloth covering it. You cannot sleep on it as is, you feel all the springs and there is a 4 inch gap between the cushions that goes straight to the floor. If I can think of any other changes I will post them.

FR is planning on releasing the 2016 updates the last week of September after their Dealer Open House.

This is good information in the interim.

The sofa switch might be a 21ss change, as other new models don't reflect that change.

The new entertainment/ front bunk wall, bathroom, & wardrobe are consistent with changes seen on the 23IKSS.

I guess the 21SS is too small for the new pantry w/ full size door? This pantry configuration is consistent with updates to TT & 5Wheels
