Designer Series Going Away

I just heard that the Designer brand is going away. I am interested in a Designer 35RLTS, but can't buy until my home sells. The Eagle 351RLTS is the same floor plan, but I can't help but wonder what the differences are in these two units. The Eagle version is lighter and cheaper so something is different. Any ideas?
I heard that there is a new line coming from Jayco to replace the Designer series, but don't have details. Do any of you?
This new 5er for me will be for full time use, so I don't want to give up some quality that will be needed down the road.
Ed

I've found that when I have questions that my dealer can't answer, I have called Jayco directly and asked for the guy who gives the tour at the factory. I think his name is John (for the life of me his name is escaping me at the moment). He is very knowlegable and if he doesn't know the answer, he will pass you on to the person who can answer it.

Happy shopping Ed

What I received direct from Jayco after I asked for the specific differences, was a spreadsheet with 33 line items. This is a very specific list and much easier to compare than the normal marketing information.
I was surprised that Jayco would send this information, but was very pleased that they are so open about their products.
I'm still getting a Designer as soon as my house sells.

The New Pinnacle Fifth Wheel

I certainly hope there will be an option for floor coverings other then carpet.

I've heard the Pinnacle will be nicer than the Designer and cost less.

I don't know about the 5'ers, but we were able to order our tt without carpeting. Unfortunately, they still put the carpet in the bedroom, but at least it's not in the main walkway. I think we had to pay $35 to do so.

Nicer and cheaper wouldn't break my heart. I will be getting one as soon as my house sells.

Ed, you must be going nuts by now. Almost Summer and the S/B not sold yet!
