Differences between 15' and 16' challengers ?

Deciding between 15' vs 16' challenger. Base price for 16' about 8k higher.
I don't see significant differences when I compare build sheets. 16' has towing
Capacity, larger tvs. Don't see much else foe extra dollars. Am I missing something ?
Your insight appreciated.
Tim

Different Fridge, different head board, Im sure some colors are different. You should be able to get a great price on a 15. The towing is the same, both are on 22k chassis with 26k combined. TV set up is different, roller shades in front DS/PS windows.

The '15 will be a year older than the '16 when you drive it off the lot. Might make a difference some day if you trade or sell it.

Very true but they should be able to get a killer deal on a 15.

Especially if the dealer has both a 15 and 16 on the lot.

I bought my 2016 Challenger 37KT last week (took delivery yesterday) during a big sale at Motor Home Specialist (Texas RV Dealer, Used RVs for sale, motorhome sales, new RVs) in Alvarado, TX. They advertise that they are the largest Thor motor home dealer in the WORLD (I have not verified it but they had over $100 million in inventory according to the salesman we worked with). I was very pleased with the price. The MSRP was $180,856 and I got it for a tad over $122,000. I sold my 2007 Fleetwood Discovery 40X for $86,000 so I came out very good overall.

Wow, didn't realize the '15s got that good of a discount. Good deal. I wanted a 37KT and the '16 was all they had.

Bought ours @ motor home specialist also. under $120K when they first came out, 16 months ago. Love it. Get what you want, 15 or 16 in my opinion can't go wrong either way. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy... We love the floor plan..
