It's not consistent, and it's not published to give dealers an opportunity to clear the lots. It's line specific, one model family might convert weeks before another. Also there might be a small period where features of both are being mixed.
My personal experience is --- 2012 26BH was manufactured in March 2011 and delivered to dealer in early April 2011
My current '12 29QBH, bought used, but original owner ordered it Jan 2012 and it was delivered March 2012. The unit includes some items that were "not" available in 2012 documents but we're in 2013. For instance we got a pocket door instead of curtains.
I wish dealers and Jayco would be forthcoming but they just aren't. Jayco typically doesn't even update the website till Aug, which is several months after the new year has been shipping.
The OP mentioned they were new to this, so just wanted them to be aware that the model year changes much sooner in RVs than it does in cars.
