Yep, the website is often months behind.
The dealer websites will have the new model pics and specs way before FR'S website will.

Never much cared for a slideout on the same side as the awning. Encroaches on the space under the awning, IMO.
I like the idea of the dinette on the same side as the sofa. If there was one thing DW always complained about when we had the 23SS - counter space. Kitchen was on the slide with the sofa.
Don't think she'll want to go with a hybrid now that she as the room we have in the MH.

When did they up the fresh water take to 43 gallons? Or is that counting the water heater?

Sometime during the 2016 model year. Earlier units still had 30 gallon tanks but later that year they came with 39 gallon. Our 2017 23WS has a 39 gallon and you can get 39 gallons into it. They include water heater capacity in the specs which is stupid as your'e never getting that water unless you drain it out the tank drain. They even get that wrong, its not 43 its 45

Also unless they changed again they are still listing the black and gray tank capacities wrong. It is not 30 but 33 gallon as they are Alpha Systems VB22548H that have 33 gallon capacity.

Just showed this to DW.
Thanks God she still loves our 23IKSS !!!
She noticed that for us (3 kids), the IKSS pantry and additional storage locker up front (the one besides the kitchen slide, by the left side of who enters the trailer, which we use for the kids clothes) are more needed.
She also loves the island....

As you see, I'll not be changing anytime soon.... (knock, knock,knock....)
