2017 Interior Decor - Copper

We're purchasing a 2017 Jay Feather 25BH...

I saw one decor for the 2016 model was a microfiber (i think it was the Meadow decor, but not sure), which we liked very much (we don't care for the leatherette because if feels cold when you first get on it).

Anyway, I know the copper is a cloth as opposed to the leatherette, but I'm wondering if it is a microfiber? Are there different types of cloth (i.e. some microfiber and some not) or is the choice simply between the leatherette and microfiber cloth?

Thanks,
Len

OK, since no one is going to answer my question, I will

Seriously, I'm not surprised nobody answered because I found it very confusing and the fact that Jayco doesn't have the 2017 info for the 25BH on their site doesn't help. That said, someone from Jayco called me back to give me some info, and Jimmy from JTS (where my TT is on order) also confirmed what I found out.

Here's my understanding, if anyone is interested...

This year they have 3 decor options for the 2017 Jay Feather 25BH:
  • Meadow ("Light Leatherette")
  • Granola ("Dark Leatherette")
  • Copper (cloth)

While the Meadow and Granola are both "leatherette", they are not only different in color but texture... the Meadow is a soft microfiber cloth fabric, while the Granola is a smooth faux leather (not suede-like). The copper is a cloth (not microfiber) which (IMO) does not feel as nice as the Meadow and may not hold up as nice.

Anyway, I was originally afraid to get the Meadow because I was thinking as a leatherette it would be cold or (when it's warm) hot & sticky, but based on discussions with Jayco and JTS that's not the case. Having seen the Meadow, I would have described it as a microfiber cloth but would not have called it a "leatherette" because to me it was confusing (unless you can see it in person).

Hope this helps someone considering what decor to choose, but please try to confirm this information before making any final decisions as I am not responsible for any misinformation

I discovered a similar thing with the Jay Flight....

Mineral is a suede like (microfiber) material but at first I thought it was leatherette. I was glad I saw it in person before making my decision and I'm sure your description may help someone else out there trying to decide!

for 2016 the jay flight had 2 cloth selections. The 'mineral' suede like microfiber, and the 'coffee' which is also cloth but totally different material than the 'mineral'
