2016 Jayco product line

Does anyone know when Jayco begins building the 2016 product line? Seems to me they begin in late spring, does anyone have an opinion?

June or July I believe is when they start building the new model for the next year.

We had planned to order a new 2014 Jay Series after the new year, but when we went to the local Jayco dealer, we were told that we might not be able to order a 2014 because the 2015s were going to begin construction. The salesperson said that Jayco has decided to change construction practices to help make their product pricing more in line with other brands, he also said some of those changes might effect quality. Not sure if the salesperson was telling the truth or if he simply wanted to put us into the stock unit.

Sounds like he was putting a little pressure on you. We ordered a 2015 in August from our dealer and he said no such thing. He was just trying to get rid of his stock. Our 24FBS in the 2014 model was only a few hundred dollars for the 2015. They had a 2014 on the lot but not with the options we wanted. Go look at another dealer if you are able too

They actually usually start the new model year production some time in the Spring, but the website does not update until August.

I checked the current inventories of plenty of Jayco dealers with the end result being there were very few new Jay Series popups on their lots. We purchased our PUP and we are fine with our purchase, now I am curious to find out if Jayco is in fact changing the features of their 2015 popups.

My thanks to all who participated in this thread.

Our 2015 Jay Flight was built in April, 2014. We bought it in August 2014 and of the 100 or so units in stock at their various dealerships, only 1 was a 2014 leftover.

Our 2014 was built in April 2013. It appears they change production years right after the first quarter. Seems a little early but that is what they do.

Yup...just like cars.

We ordered our rig in December of '12 and picked it up in March as a 2012.

Glad it was too cuz we did not like some of the changes made to the 2013's.
