Good point! I have to wonder about some dealers though. They're so backed up with repair and warranty work, I bet it's hard to get ahead enough in the service bays to offer this very profitable service.

There were some manufacturers who tried to build custom units but they are not here anymore and likely the profits were the reason.
They aftermarket stuff is not hard to install and there are loads of places that will do them if you are not so inclined.
Heck, that's half the fun for me! I love tinkering on my trailer, changing things and upgrading things, finding new gadgets... OTOH, there are some things I'd rather not deal with, like tires. They should just put quality tires on, mark up the price a little, and be done with it.
Just a note, none of this is unique to Jayco. My neighbor has a Montana 5th wheel that has Blowmax tires on it. Granted they're well within spec based on his GVWR, but they're still Blowmaxes.
