You aren’t stirring up anything. This has been a lively discussion!

In the 2016 brochure the front cap and styling does look completely different than the link you provided from LazyDays.

However, there is a link on the Winnebago website "Indentifying your Motorhome". It clearly shows that your serial number is a 2016 serial number. It must be a mid-year change from your front cap design to the newer 2016 cap. So, I'd think you'll see on your Certification Label that you have a 2016.
Attached are the labels from my coach.

That's good info Arthur. Curious that an Adventurer built in April, 2015 - especially one with an older front and rear cap design - would be listed as a 2016.

But regardless of the cap designs, etc you still have a great 2016 Adventurer. We love the layout and features of ours and I'm sure you feel the same way.

In a way, I just got lucky. We had 3 Gas Motorhomes on our list when we started looking and the Adventurer wasn't one of them. While looking at a couple of the RVs that were on our list our salesman showed us the Adventurer and we really liked it. But we kept looking.

The dealer (LaMesa Albuquerque) kept in touch and notified us of a price drop of $10,000. So, that moved it up the list. We wanted more for our trade in and held tough until they met my number and at that point it moved into lead position and we drove 1,000 miles to look at it one more time and make the trade.

Now I really appreciate the build quality, the Diesel Pusher-level features and special touches. I feel that any of us that got in on the last couple of years of the "old" Adventurer really lucked out. It's a shame the new Adventurer is such a step backward.

Yup! I also like the build quality after owning a 2015 Forest River Georgetown. The Adventurer is a much quieter ride, and it corners better. The interior quality is way above the Georgetown.

We too were looking to upgrade from the Georgetown and the Adventurer was the first RV we looked at out of 5 that day. My wife and I both agreed the Adventurer met all of our needs without having to jump up to a diesel pusher. That saved us a ton of cash!

We had a Winegard Directv satellite dish installed on the roof and had the Tyron straps installed on each wheel. Love our coach!
