I would t worry about the year whatever you’ll like it!

Next week will be the first weekend camping! Awesome!

Not worried about the year but wonder if there were any changes between the 19 and 20 models. Think I'll run my vin # and see what that says.

If you have a VIN number already I'd guess it will be a 2019. I won't get a VIN number for my 2020 for a while yet.

Got pics I will post tonight! At Benihana’s right now.

I just saw the one I ordered with the queen bed option and it gives you just enough space to get your arm and hand in there to make the bed.

We have the 2018 34RE which has a similar bedroom area.

We choose the king bed. Making the bed is tricky. Not easy. Had to learn the tricks. Changing sheets is no fun.

Even getting up on the bath side is tricky.

However, when the lights are off the king is such a luxury!

I think they only change the bed. Same minimum little shelves. We saw one when we ordered ours.

What's the 10th character of your new VIN? L?

tcrossan 03-17-2019 05:36 PM

Yes, L

SimchaSabre 03-17-2019 07:56 PM

I'm thinking L = 2020

tcrossan 03-17-2019 08:19 PM

Interesting. What makes you think that? It doesn't make a lot of difference to me either way. I figured we were buying a '19 but a 20 will be fine.
That is Unless they came out with a new under engineered chassis or polyethylene windows or.......

I checked several 2019 34IKs on online and all had VINs with a K date code. Also, I was told a

SimchaSabre 03-17-2019 08:38 PM the plant last month that they would be changing the titles "soon" . The actual model year changes will occur later like June or July. I was also told the changes would be minor because there were so many changes for 2019.

SimchaSabre 03-17-2019 08:41 PM

But the real advantage would be if you plan on attending the International FROG rally where the model year is used to prioritize service provided during the rally. Service is typically limited to units 2yrs or newer.

SimchaSabre 03-17-2019 08:45 PM

So if mine comes in as a 2020, then I should be eligible for service for the next 3 rallies. Not that that matters because I ordered my unit to be delivered w/o any defects.

That would be a 2020. Much earlier than I would have expected. Generally the change over occurs in April.

Got some pics also I’d like to get everyone’s opinion on, on my rig hooked up.

tomkatb 03-18-2019 10:38 AM

Same as mine with a king bed. Only a lot less of the trailer shuffle.

My bed touches the wall on both sides.
