We love that floorplan and have it on our wish list as the next trailer... but we would need a more stout tow vehicle, so need to start saving for that first.

RVDirect stated the model change varies by product line and is from April-May. They won't know what model year mine is until the unit hits the line and the VIN# is sent to them - so I could get a 13' or 14', either way I'm good and it wasn't a factor in our purchase. My only criteria is that it's factory fresh and not a on-the-lot queen.
Before I ordered my Eagle 324 BTS two weeks ago I emailed Jayco and asked when they would start production of 2014's. The response was April 24. Lead time was 8-10 weeks at that time, and I received notice from RVDirect that the estimated completion time of my trailer is "late April." So, it will most likely be a 2013.

I also inquired about any changes to my model for 2014, but they would not reveal that information. I would have preferred to hold off for a 2014 just in case the 2-3 things that I consider to be shortcomings about the trailer would happen to be changed. But, I did not want to wait any longer to order, as camping season for us begins in May.

I have read about some people who have ordered a current model year trailer towards the end of the production year, yet changes/upgrades scheduled for the following year's model were still added. Unlikely, but possible.

It's really not all that difficult to find out when your trailer will be made. Phone Jayco (probably will talk with Judy) and ask them when they are scheduling the next build run on your model trailer. They should be able to tell you within a tweo day time frame. They schedule production runs two months in advance. Stands to reason since they must have all the various appliances in stock when they start production.

Happy trails,

Really doesn't bother me what year it is, hence I'll happily wait till I find out the actual build date :hihi:

Well - RVDirect contacted me today, unit went into production and I have the VIN#. Pretty darn excited! I was told the unit will be off late this week or first next week then it will wait for transport to Albany NY.

Looking forward to doing the PDI and taking delivery!

I hope yours goes as well as mine did. We also purchased from their Albany facility. Good thorough PDI by a polite and knowledgeable tech and overall a pleasant experience. The only thing they got wrong was the hitch adjustment, I brought my own hitch with me and they installed it for me for free but I had to readjust at the campground best I could as the cams and cam arms were clearly not lined up. Old style Reese dual cam, they may not have seen many of those. We camped about 30 miles away that night to give everything a good tryout before coming home the next day. That was 3 1/2 years ago and my trailer has never been back to a dealer for any reason. My only warranty issue was a defective toilet water valve which Thetford sent me for free, I installed it.

I'm having them deliver it, my wife and I are driving to Albany (about 3.5 hours from here) and doing the PDI. They will have a week or so to make any adjustments (lead time for their delivery driver). If this goes like my 2005 Jayco Jayfeather it'll be some drawer adjustments, a few spots of caulking, and some minor adjustments. Fingers crossed!

Found out Jayco is a few weeks behind in transporting unit. Sadly still waiting for unit to leave the factory, that will put a damper on our early camping season. I thought we ordered early enough to avoid this but fate seems to have had a different thought!

We are eagerly waiting for our new Eagle 284BHS. I've been told that the 284BHS build day is on Friday 4/12, and ours is one of them. Tentative ship date is 4/24 I'm also told.
We're pretty much on hold beyond that to get our 05 Jay Feather LGT 27P out of storage. We are dependent the snow disappearing at the county fairground where we have it stored. This year ol' man winter is holding on by his finger nails and does not want to let go.
