2021 Mini Lite 2205S Model Change

I just heard that they have come out with a model change for the Mini Lite 2205S. I had ordered the 2020 2205S a few weeks back and was just told by the place i bought it at that it looks like i will be getting the 2021 model at no extra charge.
Does anyone know what the new changes are?

You are experiencing what I and many others here have experienced. I ordered my Mini Lite on Feb 28, 2015. It was built April 7, 2015 and when it arrived in June 2015, it was a "2016" model. What that really meant was that it was the same as a 2015 model built in late 2014, with a 2016 VIN.

Unlike the auto industry, the RV industry (Rockwood anyway) changes from one model year to the next in the spring, BUT they don't actually make any changes to the new model until late summer. So what you end up with is early models of one year that look like the late models of the previous year, and then the late models of that year have the changes.

Be interesting to know what they would change... the whole thing is a change! Haha.

We ordered our 2205s 12/7/19, it was built 2/14/20, came into dealer last Friday.

Sure is a nice unit. Good luck with yours!

Post back if you find a change on a 2021.

Had the same thing happen to me too. Purchased a Surveyor in 2013 and received a 2014. Same unit, and was a nice deal when we went to trade and could list it as a year newer!
