Question Lets talk about the 33RSKS!

We will be going full time for a year, and we've chosen the RSKS as our upgrade. We'll be trading in our 23RB in just a few weeks.

We currently have a hold on a 2015 model, especially after seeing the changes they made on the 2016's.

I wondered why the 2016 went UP in UVW, especially when the closet slide was removed, but I see that the 2016 looks like it now has a fresh water tank, whereas the 2015 appears to have been fresh-water-tankless.

I was also disappointed to see that they removed the electric fireplace. It doesn't get cold here on the Texas Gulf Coast much, but it would be nice for ambiance. I wonder what the reason for removing it was, and if it has to do with weights after adding the fresh water system.

Does anyone have this model yet, or have any experiences to add?

We looked hard at that TT before settling on the 5er. From what I understand, the UVW went up primarily due to the use of 5/8" plywood sub-flooring vs. the laminate that was in the pre-2016 models. IIRC the 2015 model also had a fresh water tank, but I don't remember the size.

We purchased a 2016 Jayco Whitehawk 33rsks a few months ago and really like it. We have the fireplace and use it quit a bit especially up north last October. Really warms up most of the camper. Not sure what you mean regarding fresh water tank? Most but all campers have fresh water tanks.

The fireplace is available as an option. It was also an option on the 2015.

If you compare the 2015 specs to the 2016 specs the fresh water capacities are not listed on the 2015.

My biggest curiosity though is why it went up in weight so much even though they removed the slide in the bedroom. That closet space was/is highly valuable in my opinion.

Not sure on weight either but could be new flooring? Even though we are happy with this model in hindsight would now prefer slide in the bedroom.
