2012 26BH vs 2013 26BH

Has anyone heard what the differences will be between the 2012 and 2013 26BH model? I know if you go to RVDirect they are saying tbe 2013 model begin manufacture in the May/Jun time frame. I have not seen any information of what the changes/differences will other than an increased price. The Jayco website does not show anything.

My wife and I were planning on pulling the trigger this weekend for the 2012 26Bh but don't know now if we should go for the 2013 model instead.

Any information will be helpful. Thanks

I have asked the dealer about changes too and no response. They aren't very good about getting info out. I have a 2011 26BH and we enjoy it.

Maybe I am reading something wrong, have a 2012&1/2, or something like that, but the 2012 32TSBH I pick up in about 48 hours has some of those changes, like all power jacks (stab & tounge), black tank flush, etc. Or maybe they are just changing them in 2013...

Part of the reason they and the dealers are tight lipped is they are still trying to move 2012 inventory. If you like to 2012 model, use it to your advantage. I explained that I might just wait for the 2013 models to come out, combined with quotes from RV Direct, and the negotiating was quick and easy - and about 30-33% less than sticker.

This is good info.
@Ranger, I've seen others who are buying now are being told that the changes are starting to take place and that units build after date x have the changes (I don't know the date).

So these changes are already happening, we're just not getting the info about new models.
