Am I nutz. I bought two Jayco trailers in one month

Now that I got your attention
Been a boater my whole life. Owned many types and sizes and at times owned two at one time. Decided to give camping on land a try. Purchased a 97 Jayco 1406. It was in less than stellar shape but had strong bones and decent canvas. I went through the whole thing. First was to remove, clean up and re-seal the roof. Then wheels axles and brakes. Then get all the systems running. After that, the upholstery and curtains removed and washed. Started taking measurements to rebuild the cabinetry to a more updated look.

During this time there were several trips to the Jayco dealer for parts and advice. Every trip to the dealer we toured the 2017 models. it seemed to be inevitable that one of these trips I would be shelling out the dough for a deposit instead of accessories. As you guessed, we purchased a 28BHBE
We thought it was a no brainier not so much because of Jayco but the dealer. All the guys at the desk and in the shop are very helpful and knowledgeable. To us that's more important than the box on wheels you choose.
So here we go again, I'm a two boat owner.......I mean camper.
And yes we did use the 1406 a few times before buying the new one..

Don't feel bad, in 2008 we bought a SENECA and a HYBRID the same week. Of course the HYBRID went to our daughter which is actually why we were at the dealer to begin with. The "boss" looked at the SENECA and said I want it and you know how that goes.

Thanks for the welcome. I'd like to keep them both but I'd have to pay to store one of them. Not sure it makes sense then. I know the pup isn't worth much market value but it's heck of a lot of fun camping out of. It's got more windows and counter space too
I suppose I'm trying to rationalize keeping the pup so I don't have to go through dealing with tire kickers looking to offer me pennies. Guess I shouldn't have gotten so personal with it so soon.

Congrats on the 28BHBE.
As a matter of fact, we are camping in ours this weekend. You will be well pleased with your purchase.
