We're in a 31FK which also claims a 33 gallon tank. I'm thinking they measure with small gallons. We were out in about a day. Our older Coachmen had a 50 gallon tank that we could stretch for several days.

Well I'm on full hook ups this weekend for the first time in a while. As long as the campground had good pressure, I'll be livin' large for a change!

My wife and I have decided on a 29 ME to purchase in the next several months. The floor plan is perfect with all the storage below. We live in No Cal and are shopping prices. If anyone can offer some help on our new purchase, it would be appreciated, thanks.

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.

Good Luck!

Has anyone put slideout toppers on their 2016 or 2017 29ME or 29MV?
I heard since the newer models have the wrap around roofs on them its more difficult or not possible to install slideout toppers. Is this true? I wonder why Jayco does not include them as standard equipment.

Quick Mods

I did a couple of quick Mods to the ME today. My wife wanted somewhere to keep her various maps and attraction books. We found a basket which fit very nicely on the wall behind the dinette slide. Took me a couple of seconds to commit to putting screws threw the faux leather. But I am happy with the results. The second mod was more for my benefit... well maybe the kids while we are travelling. I wanted cup holders by the sofa. We bought two of the flip out marine cup holders to install. I struggled with location and in the end decided to simply mount them on the ends of the sofa arms.

29MV slide out toppers

The dealer installed slide out toppers on our 2016 29 MV. Doesn't seem to be a problem.

I bet it is due to cost. I could have used them last time I was out as there were trees over the slideouts which is unusual for us do to where we go. I'm going to have to start bringing a ladder so I can start checking for debris before bringing the slides in.
