Model year change?

Just wondering when FR changes the model year on the fifth wheels? I've seen a 2010 355qbq Sandpiper but not a Sierra (online)? Do they change all models at once or do they just pick a day out of a hat? We have a 355qbq Sierra on order, should be here in the next week, wondering if it will be a 2010?

We picked up our Wildcat on April 25th, 2008. Never paid attention until I got the title, it is a 2009 model year. So, I guess it is possible yours could be a 2010.

We took delivery of our Rockwood 5th on July 5, 2008 and the year model is 2009. For what it's worth.

Our 2008 Cardinal was manufactured March of 2007.
Manufacturer's brochures are always out of date even online. The dealers are not sure what colour schemes will show up at times.

bought our surveyor 235rks June 12/08. It was ordered sometime before as we had to wait for delivery (60-90 days I presume). It came as a 2009 model.

most manufacturers seem to have switched thus far.

There were some differences in our 2010 Sierra 356RL from the one on the dealer’s lot.
According to the dealer the normal model year change is July.
So In July 2010 they will launch the 2011 models. Almost like the auto industry.
In January they do a midyear change after receiving feedback for six months from the July new releases.

Some of the options become standard features on the Jan midyear release.
