Is there a chart, feature list or enthusiast that can generally lists the differences, updates or beneficial features added per model year?  I am mainly interested in the wet bath "s" models from 2014 thru 2018.

    I don't believe that this type of cumulative/comparable information is available on a chart here on the forum but members have posted information from year to year on the varying models and amenities therein.

    My advice is to buy as new as your budget will allow. Nu Camp constantly makes changes through out the year to improve their product. So an early 2015 may be different than a late 2015.

    We have a 2014. Missing is an outside receptacle and a vent fan to help the AC unit. S model, non clamshell.

    @KBaggins1 The outside receptacle was an option on the 2014. They didn't start installing the fan above the A/C unit until late 2014/early 2015. If you live close enough to the factory, you can check for installation prices and schedule an appointment at the factory for both of these items. If you're not close, talk to your dealer for a price and an appointment.

    Updates and improvements seen to be ongoing without regard to a specific model year. Throw in modifications made by a previous owner and anything goes! It makes things interesting, but hard to document.

    If you care that much about specifics, I suggest you closely inspect any [email protected] you are considering purchasing.

    We already installed the outside receptacle. Just pointing out to the op what might be missing if they find a used 2014 like ours.

    Inspecting any tab I look at goes without saying. However,  I like to see the details and specs so I can make the most informed buying decision and was hoping someone may have knowledge of key things without picking them up here and there in various posts. 

    The ac vent and receptacle comment was very helpful as I wouldn't have even known to consider these item. Thank you.

    You will want to make sure the S model has a Norcold vent fan to exhaust the heat from the frig - that was second half of 2015 - early 2016's I think.  Upgraded cushions with the 2016 models, late 2016/2017 with shades that pull up and screens that pull down ( earlier models were reversed and had shade sag problems), electric brakes late 2014 addition?, Lagun table and bed slats standard starting late 2016/early 2017.  When did they add the pull out steps?

    From a thread - changes for 2016:
    • 3D Logos
    • 100% Azdel Backers
    • Radial Tires (2015)
    • 30 amp power cord w/ built in LED light (2015)
    • Fantastic Fans will be clamp on which makes them screw free
    • Corrugated underbelly protectant & insulation
    • No fabric on window valances (they will be like the Outback)
    • Seat Panel Finger Inserts for Finished Look & EZ Opening
    • Upgraded upholstery foam density
    Late 2016 -added Digital Alde display

    And another thread:   They have made standard in 2017:  included bed slats with a cleat to secure the slats, Lagun table, shades that pull up rather than pull down, screens that pull down rather than pull up, struts to support the cabinet doors, different faucet in the galley sink.  

    2018 model changes:
    Different upholstery
    CS models with standard front counter and cabinets and 3 way frig
    Standard front window and outside shower
    New Norcold 3 way with side venting
    I think a change in the overhead fan???

    Hope this helps.  Hang around - 2020 they are going for the self-propelled model!  Always improving.

    What he said. Great job.

    When did See Level 2 monitor start getting included?  I'm trying to figure out if a certain [email protected] is early or late 2017 and it has that but also 2 round vents under front window.

    @lauriehart, my [email protected] is a very early 2017. Took delivery may 14, 2016. It was built april, 2016. It came with digital alde control, seelevel guages, but has the 2 round fridge vents up front, which is the old style fridge. The newer fridge began being installed a few months later. The best way to determine if the unit is a '16 or '17 or '18 is by the VIN#. There's a thread on the forum about reading the specific information contained in the VIN. Use that, or give Nucamp a call with the VIN# and they'll be able to tell you. The change to the new style fridge was made not even halfway through the 2017.

    If it were me, buying used, the new fridge would be matter, because the old fridge has been discontinued, which means parts supplies for that model will likely diminish over time.

    Oh, I did not know they finally put a 3-way fridge in the CS.  That would be really nice, as you can't run the 12V fidge very long without significant battery and solar upgrades, and sun to feed the solar panels. 

    That said, we do like the front bench in our CS for our dog.
