Is it common for Jayco to make unannounced subtle changes?

I know the website notes that features are subject to change without notice. Is this common? Today when I went and looked at our new trailer at the dealership, I noticed right off the bat that the shower stall was round with sliding doors, rather than the neo-angle with a pull open door I had seen in pics of other 2016's of the same model online (earlier 2016 models). I also noticed that the bedding had an attractive print rather than just the plain colored ones I had seen. I also noticed a newly designed model sticker on the outside next to the door that is different from the other 2016 38FDDS that I had seen.

I'm not complaining. Quite the contrary, as these are all welcome changes IMO.
I'm just curious to know if anyone else has noticed any subtle mid year changes on trailers that were ordered.

I believe it is fairly common. In our Eagle the couch was changed from a hide-a-bed to a sectional style, something we definitely didn't want. When I called the dealer (Julie @ Forrest RV) to question which we were getting, they had no idea about the change. Thankfully our order was in just before the change took effect so we got what we had ordered. I don't know what other changes, if any, were made.

I bought mine from Julie also! Small world.

Here some examples of what I'm talking about.
1st pic is what I was expecting, 2nd pic is what we got.



Graphics difference.
Pic1 is what we were expected, pic 2 is what we got.

Thanks. I agree, I actually like the round shower better as there's no door to have to swing open. I think it's more functional in an already restrictive RV bathroom. Size wise, it seems to be the same. I walked inside it and didn't notice a difference vs the neo angle design. I was just surprised to see it.

They changed the side our bathroom door hinges on. I liked the change.

That was my biggest fear when I ordered mine. I only had the floor plan to go by. I had to kind of piece things together from other models.

But, like you, the changes they made were in my favor (just got a 360 degree view this week) and I am relieved, and happy that it is better than I had hoped.

I noticed in your picture of the shower that they are still using that worthless sink drain. The stopper has only position, CLOSED. Be careful not to drop anything down it. I found a small screen that I put in mine.

Mine is not like that, if I turn it 90deg. It stays up. I'll get a pic of it in the AM.
