New Build 32bhds weights?

Anybody know what Jayco did to reduce the tongue weight for the Jayflight 32bhds ? The floorplan looks like my 2013 with no noticeable changes.

In the case of the Jay Flight 32BHDS...., one thing that stands out is that in 2013 the outside kitchen was standard, but in 2014 the outside kitchen is an option which can account for the published UVW and Dry Hitch weight differences.

But as we all know, it's the Ship Weight (yellow sticker) that's more realistic when referencing UVW's, then real world "loaded" weight come into play.

My 2013 `s MSRP has the outside kitchen optional for $ 671.00. Even with the kitchen that should help reduce the tongue wt. and mine is over 1200lbs. Just wondered if there was something like the axle placement that could have it lighter ?

Curious about this too. 32BHDS is quickly rising to the top of our list for our new TT.

@RusticEagle -- for 2014 the outside kitched appears to be standard. I don't see an option for it on the build/price list, which is disappointing becasue we really don't want it. Something about an outside kitchen and camping in bear country doesn't comfort me.

Your correct, I must have glanced at the 32RLDS located right below the 32BHDS on the Floorplans/Specs page.

Thanks for the catch

Bob
