2017 lists a new outside kitchen, but I'm not sure what changed.

Let me know what the dealer says on the changes. Just wondering.

Can't wait to get ours. I'm told that since it is such a late 2016, I may get some 2017 options. A hybrid if you will.
Well that link you sent regarding the 2017 changes was rather enlightening. I printed out the new floorplan which I found on a Tampa dealers site showing the revised den and also a copy of the order sheet and 2017 options document from that other thread. I'll meet with my dealer in the morning to go over the options.

I see that autoleveling is now an option. I definitely want that.

Not sure about the Sani-Con Turbo and the Tankless water heater options.

Ahh the fun....

I am not sold on the tankless water heater. Some love them, some hate them. We boondock some, and I hear they don't do as well with a very low flow of water.....With hookups where water use isn't a concern, I hear they are great.

I have no experience with the Sani-Con.

I sat down with my dealer last week and talked about the changes to the 355MBQS for 2017. He showed me some photos of a North Point 377RLBH that gave me an idea how the loft will integrate. Not exact but enough for me to get the idea.


He was also able to verify that Jayco does do the slide toppers at the factory and your price was right on the money. That's actually a great price for four installed toppers with the added benefit of the 2 year warranty.


I went ahead an placed the the order and we are looking at a mid-late july delivery.

Cool.

Hope the new bunkroom layout is good. We liked the 377RLBH, but 4 feet longer and 2500 more lbs made the decision for us.

This one will be hard enough to get into a couple of the sites we like at state parks.

We get our 2016 on 05/14. Can't wait.

During the time you will be getting your new rig, we will be spending 10 days in Destin, FL.

Happy Camping!

I have a 2017 Eagle 355MBQS on order and just got word will be built by the end of next week! So guessing we will all see pics soon of the new layout. Can't wait. I got some conflicting info regarding the slide toppers however. I tried ordering from factory and my rep (and Jayco... I inquired directly as well) both said not available from the factory directly on the 2017 model.

Rachburger, when did you place your order.

I was in the dealers office when he spoke to the rep about adding the toppers. As far as I know mine is being built with them as it's listed on the order.

Excited to get this.

May 9th I placed order. What dealer did you order from? I would love to have mine done at the factory, as I was quoted over $500 each. I used rvone.com/rvdirect.com and my pickup is in Albany, NY.

i ordered from RVOne, picked up in Orlando on 05/14.

Mine was a 2016, but the sales person had no issue getting them from the factory. $700 for all 4. Wouldn't have a camper that had slideouts without them.

And, since they are from Jayco, they have a 2 year warranty, not one year like if the dealer had installed them.

Yup, can order directly from factory on 2016, but not 2017. New design. Bunk slide a different size as well. That explains it. That's a great price though. Had I ordered the north point 377rlbh it would have been $720 for all 4, so spending $500 each doesn't seem reasonable. I'm waiting on the toppers for this reason.

My 2017 Jayco Eagle 355MBQS is completed and has been released to the shipping company. One step closer to having it! Guessing I'm getting one of the first ones, as I don't hear anyone else saying theirs is built.
