They still marketed the Platinum package in 2016/2017. I believe they changed with the mid 2017 models (or 2018). We purchased a 2016 Glacier Peak around the time they started making the 2017 models.

In 2016 the Platinum package became standard. They also added 50 amp service, bedroom A/C pre wire along with a few others. They changed the front cap from the dark gray to a lighter shade as there were problems with the front caps fading.

We also added a Progressive EMS Progressive ems-hw50c.

I've attached the 2016 Glacier Peak brochure which may help determine some of the differences.

Hope this helps...

That is awesome Stuart, thanks a million for the info and the brochure.

This helps a lot. Ironically this am I spoke with Corrin at Thompson RV to ask her if she had build sheet or brochure. She scanned one they had and emailed it to me but it is not as clear as the one you sent. This is awesome. I still have not seen the unit we are buying in person so I am trying to educate myself to make sure I know what I am buying.

I have been lurking on the Outdoor RV owners part of this forum and it looks like I am going to be doing a lot more reading this weekend. Lots of great people and good stuff here.

Stuart,

What part of Colorado are you in? I live and work in Northern NM but we are fixing up a place in Salida where the RV will live and I hope to in the next couple of years.

Again, thank you.

We're up in the Denver metro area. Far enough out to have peace and quiet.

We usually head down to Angel Fire once or twice a year. There's a real nice RV resort they built a few years ago. Have a BIL that lives just outside of Taos so we can stop by and visit.

We've been pretty happy with our Glacier Peak, even went up to LaGrande in 2017 to do the factory tour. We're thinking of selling ours and upgrading in the near future. Was hoping for another ORV, but it looks like they dumped the fill profile fifth wheel floor plans.

I forgot I had the following information I used when tracking the changes on the model year changes. It should give you some more details on what was standard/optional on the 2015 models.

Stuart, thank you very much, this build sheet is exactly what I have been searching for. This is awesome.

During lunch hour I printed out the brochure and it came out fantastic. I just printed this "build sheet" out and will keep it with the RV.

I live in and have lived in Taos pretty much my whole life with the exception of a few years of military service and a couple of years running around Colorado and the NW. I have been spending most time here but looking to spend about half in CO this year. If you want I will pm you my phone and email in case you guys are down this way. Would love to grab a beer and food.

Thank you again for all this help. The RV industry was much more simple 20 years ago. We started to turn away from it when we would be boondocking at the lake and someone would come up with their RV, set up, start up the generator and run it all day so kids could watch TV and adults stay inside with the AC on. Over the years I have developed a little more tolerance and hoping we can adapt. Oh well!

We also added a Progressive EMS Progressive ems-hw50c.

Anyone following this thread.

I looked at the Progressive EMS-HW50C. That seems to be the ticket. I called a tech at progressive who was very helpful. He explained to me that a lot of RV parks can have electrical service issues and this protector is good for a lot of reasons. He said I could probably install myself but unless a certified RV tech installed it the warranty would be void.

I also asked him if I needed anything else and this is where I am confused. He advised that I would need a "dogbone 30-50 ARV that this EMS would plug into to be able to plug into shore power. He gave me a product number but cannot find a progressive product with these numbers but found a Camco product on Amazon:
Camco 50 Amp Male To 30 Amp Female, 18" (55175) (sorry haven't figured out how to paste a link yet)

Not having having seen the RV I am purchasing I don't know what type of electrical plug it has to answer my own questions. I suspect they are standard. I just want to be prepared when I go pick it up to pull into an RV park and "hook up". Sure don't want to be running around a town I don't know with a 30' RV looking for accessories. The boy scout in me simply wants to be prepared. Any suggestions or answers are most appreciated.

Thanks in advance for response!

2015 Brochure attached. ORV does mid year changes. Our 2016 was a mid year run and had some differences from when we ordered it, so it depends on build date as well.

Thank you Rickeoni, this is awesome.

I compared this 2015 brochure with the 2016 that StuartN sent earlier in this thread. There appears to be some minor difference such as the 2016 has Mor ryde pin box, the 2015 has what they call a Heavy Duty pin box. 2016 offers 5 floor plans 2015 has 6, There are some cover changes from the Carmel Praline in the two. It appears the 2016 is prewired for bedroom AC the 2015 is not. I have yet to compare the brochure build sheets side by side but they look really similar.

Thank you very much for taking the time to send that. I am going to print this one out as well and then see if I catch anything significant.

Feel free to send a PM. We love getting down to that part of NM. We've found a few local micro breweries that are pretty good in and around the Angel Fire area.

TPMS, ever since this started showing up on vehicles, the last two I bought drive me nuts. The monitor always comes on when the temperature drops and forget it when you change wheels and tires from winter to summer. On my Lexus I have to take it to the dealer when I put my snow tires on for the season because of their pryitory (sp?) code. I have to take back to them when I put the summer set back on. A regular automotive shop or tire place cannot change it cuz the vehicle only has one slot for the TPMS.

With that said, I have pulled enough trailers over the years that I can see where that would come in handy. Thanks for the heads up, I will start researching. Any suggestions.

Does anyone on this forum know if there are any major differences between a 2015 Glacier Peak Platinum and a similar 2016 model Titanium series? I asked Outdoor and they could not equivocally say if there were. I have searched on line for specs and cannot find anythingoin 2015 models. I reached out to Thompson RV who originally sold this unit but have not heard back from them.

I have used the Progressive plug-in model for six years and never had an issue or concern. I do lock it to the power pedestal (knowing full well that won't stop a determined thief) for peace of mind.
