Is 14 tour pack worth the extra $

I am going to be adding a king tour pack to my 13 custom.
I have never had a tour pack on any of my bikes, so my question is are the changes on the new Rushmore tour packs that much better than the old ones? I do know they are a little bigger and I think they look somewhat sleeker.

The total cost for the 14 after I have it painted to match my bike which is Candy orange will be about $400 more then a new color matched 13 .

Thoughts and opinions of those who have owned both would be greatly appreciated, thanks

Does it come with the light bar on it?
I've had both and do like the newer one better. $400 better? Only you can decide that.

I like the newer one much better and I think more than just the looks. Like you said it is bigger but also the hinge and latch system is better. It was worth it to me but even having mine painted to match my 12' Skunk I don't think it was $400 more than buying the older style already painted from HD. You may want to get other prices for paint if that is where the extra cost is. If you buy a new unpainted TP from Jon at Horny Toad HD that could save you some there.

I bought mine before the new ones came out, but if I was to buy one today , I'd buy the Rushmore TP. I think they look so much better and being more roomy is just a bonus.
If you plan on keeping the bike for a while, 4 bills really ain't that much. You can always remove it and use it on a new bike when the time comes too.

No light bar, the price difference is having the primed 14 tour pack painted.

Thanks for the replies, sounds like you all like the 14 better.

Big Gary, I am planning on keeping my bike for a while, and I do agree that in the big picture $400 isn't that much if you are getting a quality product that is more user-friendly than the 13 tour pak.

You'll be very happy with the new style TP and will forget about the extra cost once you have it. I don't know what you are paying for the primed TP but if you are not getting a good discount it would be worth your wile to contact Jon and just see if it saves you some dough. He is a forum member here by the name of PCpain. Shoot him a PM and see. Good luck and don't forget to post some pics when it's done. 😊

This seems to be the thread I want.
I am going to add the '14 king tour pack.
I will also be looking to add lights to it. Signal, brake, turn.
So, what wiring harness do I need?
what would I need to be able to use the '14 light bar on my '13 RG custom?
Has anyone eyeballed a '13 tour pack light bar to the 14 tour pack?

You will not be able to put a 13' light bar on a 14' tour pack. The shape of the TP is too different. You will not have trouble getting the 14' light bar to work on your 13'. Lights do not care how the get their power. So they can run with the new can bus system or the old electrical system. Many have done it and they work just fine. You will just need the right plug to fit the connection under the seat.
