From what I understand and from what I saw on the lot and all the photos I have ever seen for 2016 JayFlights the standard for the covers is White. I worked it through my dealer, I asked if it could be done and they asked Jayco and they said no problem, they have them in stock. If they would not have done it the dealer was going to change them out themselves. On the MSRP Invoice from Jayco there is a line item to use Black Covers with an extra charge to do it, same with deleting the Graphics, Skylight and shipping some items loose so I could install. I worked the deal with these requests prior to these additional charges and they honored the agreed upon deal.
I did contact Jayco directly through their contact form about deleting the Skylight and they confirmed it could be done and for the dealer to ask for it through they're ordering contact at Jayco. I then requested this through the dealer, who had never done this before, and let them know Jayco confirmed it could be done. I had also asked Jayco direct if they could install an amber porch light, and the politely said they could not do that although I was hopeful they would.
As for Aluminum wheels I feel (not scientifically proven by me
) they are stronger and over time less prone to have issues from deterioration or rust plus complete the look of the trailer with the Black. It would be nice if they had made the standard steel wheel black like the JayFeathers, personally I think that would go better with the all Black trim over the White wheels.
Personally I wanted the All Aluminum (No Black) Sendel T03 wheel they have used in the past and was hoping to have a choice as I had seen the BHBE's with both style wheels but had to go with the Black that I got which was OK.
Our Sales guy said that was the most modified custom ordered Jayco he had ever done and they sell A LOT of them. I always like to know (and always do) more than the salesman for anything we purchase and this was one of those times, that being said he was super helpful and not afraid to ask about any of the requests. I should have pushed harder for the all Gray siding cause when I met with him to look at the camper it seemed like they did not really flow that request to Jayco very well and he thought they probably would have done it if that would of happened.
I had already requested so many little mods I did not want to push my luck so did not push to hard about that one.
Talk to your dealer about the Black Covers… my mantra was it does not hurt to ask, all they can say is No and Jayco said Yes on the covers.
