I was also wondering about the TV being hard to see from the sofa. Was wondering if it's possible to put a different TV mount on there so it still swivels to bedroom but you could pull it out and turn it while it's in the living area? Also a little bummed that they went back to the double bowl sink on 2017's. I would rather one large sink.
I don't know why Jayco hasn't updated their website yet, I have been looking online for pictures of 2017 25BH, but all I can find is 2016 (some say 2017, but pics are of 2016). Good Luck with your purchase! Would love to see pictures! We ordered one beginning of April so it won't be in until June sometime. Thanks again!
Using a different TV mount might be a good idea, but it may not be necessary. When we played with it, we were able to swivel the thing its mounted to for a better view for anyone sitting in the couch, but it starts to hide a little of the TV the more you swivel it. It's not bad if both people on the couch are laying in the same direction (need a pillow or something for your head to make it more comfortable), but if you plan on sitting conventionally then yes, a different wall mount might help a lot. The only negative I can see is that it will likely stick out more when you're not using it (I've never see one that swivels that mounts flush to the wall).
If you do decide to use a different bracket, you may want to opt out of the TV option and buy your own. Since you'll have to mount it yourself it will probably be cheaper to but the TV and bracket from Sam's Club or wherever.
FYI, I am not affiliated with Sam's Club, I just buy all my TVs there :-)
