Excellent Rock!
Just a guess, but maybe they group the model builds and we happen to be the unlucky ones...
Anyway, it appears ours will be coming off the line about the same time and a great opportunity for us to share notes...

We will be driving to IN to pickup and then head to Pacific NW via WI after about a week or so of near-by camping to verify all-systems go status...

If you don't mind, Looking forward to sharing notes... Thanks again Rock!

Great. Mine is coming to a Tampa dealer bring home than heading to the panhandle for turkey week. Maybe another week in spring than to my river side property in Keene N Y for two months of summer. Wife and I still work but she is a teacher and off all summer. I have to save vacation and sick leave. Just my luck I get sick for two weeks mid summer lol But in a few more years we will be using it about 4 than six months a year. This is my last big toy. Keep me posted on any updates on your ship date. It is either grouped together or maybe a product line change for something. To me it would seem more like a line change than grouping together. I was told by Jayco when I called about the slide that when u get a ship date ur order is in production and one to two before shipping u get the VIN I am hoping it is a good sign

AZ & Rock, good luck with your units.
I have seen several times that Jayco does in fact wait until they get a certain number of orders for a particular type of unit before starting production on them. It kind of sucks but also makes sense at the same time.


Keep us updated...

Cool that answers that Better than thinking they found a problem and were correcting the line.

We have watched and read this thread with great interest. After a long search, the Pinnacle 36 FBTS was the 5th wheel we felt met our needs and wants. This thread helped confirm that decision. We are hopefully, picking our 2015 FBTS up on the 8th. Our's was generator prepped, so we are having a generator installed, upgraded the tires to the Goodyear G614's, added a rear view camera and are having the steps replaced with the aluminum steps like on the 2016's added. It was already equipped with the 2nd A/C, dual pane windows, queen bed, theater seating, fireplace and slide out awnings. Thanks to TexasRT for starting the thread and answering questions and providing information to my PM's. We've had a Jayco Eagle travel trailer for over 10 years and that also influenced our decision.

Okraman, Congrats and I'm glad I could help. Sounds like you're getting a very well equipped coach. The FBTS is an awesome unit and we couldn't be happier with ours. Keep us updated.

Remember if you think you're spending to much time on the walk-thru, then spend some.
