Without further ado, here’s a look at what’s new for model year 2017.
The new A.C.E comes with a new Brazilian Cherry wood option, which gets its name from its natural cherry color. A cool new Arctic Frost Interior is an additional interior option. Further interior updates encompass the vinyl floor, countertops, wall board colors and border trim. Up to 12 new features updates have been incorporated, including blank tank flush for all floor plans, vent covers on attic fans, and handy LED bed overhead reading lights. Six options on current A.C.E motorhomes are now standard on the 2017 model.
The Axis RUV has a new choice of wood and color. Among the eight updates to the motorhome are exterior baggage doors, exterior TV swivel, and LED step lights and overhead reading lights. The carpet has been replaced by vinyl flooring while the previous air mattress swaps places with a fold out sofa for a more comfortable interior.
Customers love the Challenger’s innovative floor plans and ingenious design. For 2017, the motorhome gets a new Riverside full exterior body paint and three new interior colors. High gloss wood adds more sheen to the cabin and a couple of practical additions also enhance the overall functionality and usability of the motorhome. You now get a second side splash, full bottom booth dinette cushions and a fully tiled backsplash.
The versatile Chateau gains two new floorplans for 2017, bringing the total number of available floorplans to 11. It also gets a new standard exterior color, two optional shades, and one new interior color. A number of nifty changes enhance the overall practicality of the motorhome. Some floorplans benefit from additional storage above the microwave; a redesigned pantry with two drawers and three fixed shelves; additional drawer storage under the lower bunk, and an additional wardrobe drawer. Bigger windows behind the couch and table welcome more natural light. A new backsplash and stainless steel sink enhance the beauty of the kitchen, while you can plug in everything cleanly in a pop-up outlet.
2017 Chateau Super C
The Super C’s 33SW floorplan has been discontinued for the 2017 model year. Buyers have a new choice of paint color for the exterior: Redwood in full-body paint scheme.

The cabover mattresses and storage compartments boast a redesign, while the 35SB floorplan benefits from new drawer storage under the lower bunk. The 35SK now has a bigger kitchen window. All 2017 Chateau Super C motorhomes have an added tray for two extra batteries.
The Citation Sprinter is a compact and affordable motorhome with a robust Mercedes Benz chassis. For 2017, the RV has two new exterior and interior color choices, and a new wood option. A slew of interior updates add to the freshness quotient.
