Are we crazy?

We just put a $2,000 deposit down on a 2015 but new 36f BTS Pinnacle.
Out the door price total was 64.5k. Kind of nervous about the purchase but I think we got a fairly good deal.

You should pay 25%-35% off of MSRP.

Crazy is a "Relative" term. If you are happy with the purchase and are comfortable with the deal you negotiated then no need to go crazy. We all experience some form of buyers remorse, or regret after a purchase. We do more research after the fact and then beat ourselves up over it. Go enjoy the camper and make some memories!

Welcome aboard, Chief! As others said, crazy isn't "bad", as long as you are happy with it. Best wishes for smooth sailing with the new unit, and THANK YOU for your service!

I paid a little more than I wanted to but this was the exact layout I was looking for and it took over a year to find it. Never looked back and as a matter of fact we're always looking around the next bend in the road.

Crazy

The total out the door including taxes, license, pdi came to about 68% of msrp. Have some warranty questions in separate thread.

Thanks for the welcome!

We have been looking for months at grand design, arctic fox, orv, montana....etc. jayco seemed to have the best warranty, and we absolutely love this floorplan. I always hate having to find a place to dress while wife is using the bathroom. Lots of space in this setup. We hope to go full time in a few years.

Towing with a 2014 dodge ram 3500 dually.

This came with slide toppers and is all prepped for a generator. One thing i may do first off is replace the chinese tires. Anyone have any issues with them?

Thanks
Greg

Ha, you are definitely crazy...as are we all! Owning an RV is much like owning a boat or any depreciating assets. It is a darn shame we love the RVing lifestyle so much.

Enjoy the new RV!

There have been many discussions on the forums lately about replacing tires. Here's one to get you started; http://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/f1...res-37418.html
