Woo Hoo!!!

We did it. We signed the dotted line and came home with a brand new 2016 Jay Feather X19H.

Our dealer was great. The salesperson went above and beyond with our trade in. The PDI tech was great. He was entertaining as well as knowledgeable as he went through all of the stuff and answered all of my questions thoroughly.

The ride home was uneventful. The unit towed straight. I did notice a little more strain on the TV. But after upgrading from a HW pop-up, I expected as much. The new HTT only weighs 1000# more (it was a BIG pop-up).

Got it in the driveway and set it up almost immediately in comparison to the pop-up. Started playing the "where's this go, now?" game with the stuff we took out of the pop-up. It was amazing how much stuff that has become obsolete with the new camper. ;-)

What's in store for us now? A little "driveway camping" this weekend and a local trip for the Labor Day weekend to run it through it's paces.

P.S. I know it's still early, but the only issues I've noticed are dirt and mud in the wastewater cap (must've been stored in a weird spot at some time, it was in the showroom when we bought it). And one of the straps that hold the front mattress in place has a broken clip. I think I'm going to replace them both with metal clips. The plastic ones they use just seem cheap.

Thumbs up Welcome

Welcome from Philly! We have a X17A, which we bought as a leftover this Feb. We have enjoyed several trips this summer and are planning some for the fall. Hope you enjoy your new Jayco.

Congrats on your purchase. Our first TT was a 2012 Jay Feather and we loved it.

Congrats and welcome! We have a 2013 x19h and love it! The only problem we've had in the three seasons we've owned it is the plastic seam that the front tent bed attaches to pulled away from the frame, only about 4 inches in the upper corner. We're bringing it in to have it repaired in about a month. Other than that, it's been perfect. Awesome light and accommodating TT that didn't break the bank and tows easy with our Highlander. Good luck!
