Congrats on the choice ptobie, good luck with the shopping! I can't give much advise on pricing as Canadian prices are significantly different then US Pricing. But I will advise to take advantage of negotiations to add any high value features that you can. The big one I regret not negotiating is the slide toppers. They are great for reducing moisture and debris on your slide outs and help with cooling of the unit as the sun does not directly shine on the poorly insulated slide outs. This is a bigger deal with our model then most of the others due to the fact that there is no mounted ladder. I don't have the toppers and as a result loose significant storage space in order to cart a portable one every where I go. I have to pull that ladder out at each campground in order to clear each of the three slides before pulling them in.
I did use my purchase to negotiate setting up my Toad and got good value on that. I have them include the Blue Ox tow bar, the plate and wiring installed in the Toad and the Brake buddy.
When you do your PDI. Ensure that they have done an alignment or agree to dates to have it done, Jayco will pay for it. I also found my Bigfoot Levellers were improperly installed, they were only 6 inches off the ground. Manufacturer specs advised they should be 7-8" off the ground.
