Jayco Factory Visit

Was at the Jayco Factory today to look at the 2017 Pinnacles there was about 30 or so lined up in the yard waiting for a part before they can be shipped I have a 38 FLSA on order due to be built in June. the new models with the changes look awesome but the most noticeable change to me is the new 12 inch frames verus the old 10 inch frame. took some pictures but was hard because the slides could not be opened because they were so close together. The new colors and lighting changes are awesome, if anybody is interested I could post a few of the pictures or answer any questions

There is at least 20 changes, carpet, cabinet handles, new hanging light fixtures,new led accent lighting, new cabinet design front entrance, screen door kick panels and a lot more hard to take pictures with all five slides closed but here is a tease

Going to the 12" frame has got to make them even heavier but maybe it will eliminate some of the bent frame supports we are seeing on the 2016's. Did you notice if they are still using Schwintec slides and the electric leveling? Wondering if they switched to hydraulic leveling.

The leveling system is still electric and slides are the same also, have been using the same since 2013 on a 2014 Seismic and 2015 Seismic Toy Haulers with no problems with either.

Middlebury, IN. Can't miss it as Jayco has stuff all over that town. Probably should've called it Jaycobury.
