    Hi.

    Not sure if this is the right place to post this or not, but, does anyone know when the new models come out every year?

    Thanks!

    It seems to depend on the manufacturer. Like everyone else, most want to introduce next year, this year.

    We bought an 05 model in 9/05, but there were 06 models in stock at the time.

    Mid year seems to be the time for a lot of them.

    The local Ancera is running sales on campers now with special discounts on '06 models.

    Happy Camping!

    It depends on the factory they can put out 09 models when ever they want to.

    If they come up with a new idea sometimes they will call it the next model year.

    As a Dealership this is something we HATE. Give us a chance to get rid of the last model year before you want us to buy next years model.

    Starcraft Fiscal years ends last day of June The Next Years models will come out in April to May. I have seen some Factory's like Heartland with 09 models on the Dealers lot.

    What happens is a Dealership is signed up to be
    a New Dealer for Factory X. That Dealer does not want to buy product that will be a year old in a few months when the new year model comes off line.
    So Factory X says you bring in our units now and we will give you paper saying they are 09's or what ever the new models are coming off will be. This practice has pushed the new models coming off line faster and faster.
    I am the State of Tennessee Delegate for RVDA and have suggested that the RVIA (Gov Body ) does not issue to any factory the RVIA sticker until a set month same for each factory and this way we will know as a dealership when to expect a year change coming off line.

    Sorry for such a long of post, but this is something that has rub me wrong for many years now.
