Also appears to me like they are also going to Gray on the Eagle line as well but taking it yet a step further because there is an entry under "exterior" that mentions an "automotive look" where awnings, roof, trim, etc. will all match.

Here ya go.
The SaniCon turbo sounds interesting. Just hope there is a bypass for when it fails or there is an electric problem.

Luckily with being so far away, I have had minimal issues and would definitely make the 12 hour one way trip to purchase from them again if the savings are as great as they were on my current trailer. I will be emailing them in the next few days as well to see if they have any updates on the 2017's.
Just an FYI. Gillette has now been knocked down into the "not so great" dealership category in my eyes. We were all ready to pull the trigger in March on a 2016 where they were offering at least 25 percent off MSRP. During that process, we found out about the 2017 changes and decided to wait and order a new one. Now, Gillette is playing hard to get with their pricing and are all but trying to sell the 2017 so close to MSRP that we are ready to start looking elsewhere. I am going to make a "fair" offer to them and see what they say, but at this point, whatever good will I had, especially towards a returning customer, has been badly shaken.

Love the new options for the 355MBQS listed!! This one has prospects for our switch back to Jayco!

I called Jayco directly yesterday, and they confirmed for me that the 2017 Eagle 355MBQS has the new bunk room laid out with a loft identically to the 2016 North Point 377RLBH. I forgot to ask about the mudroom layout (the 2017 spec sheet says the 355 mudroom has been updated, but the North Point 377 has a bare wall where the mudroom would be). If I find out any more, I'll post it.

We are not owners yet, but are intent on buying the 355 within a year or so.

Did they give you any kind of release date with photos?

We really love this layout. Saw the North Point and loved it. For our pricing the Eagle would be a perfect fit! Cannot wait to see this one.

I have one on order and my dealer said that I will likely have it the first part of July.

We are also looking at the 355MBQS and I was curious if the overall length had grown on the 2017 due to the bunk room change. I called Jayco and they said the 2017 is only 6 inches longer than the 2016. Total length is 40ft 2in. This is over 2ft shorter than the North Point 377RLBH. I thought that was pretty cool to still basically get the same floor plan without the additional length. They said the ETA is late July give or take a couple weeks.

I found the floorplan of the 2017 355MBQS at a HamiltonRV website:

https://hamiltonsrv.com/jayco-rv/eag...s-floor-plan/#

The door stays in the same place as the 2016, and the mud room stays in the same spot. That's the only thing that seems to differentiate the layout from the NorthPoint 377.
