28bhbe questions

Does anyone have the dimensions of the u shaped dinneette when it is used as a bed? I was looking at getting the hide a bed, elite package and thermal package, thought about upgrading the A/C but not sure if it's necessary with the thermal package insulation of the Jayco even though I live in Florida. I had a 30 foot coachmen with central air (13,500) and it would get freezing cold even in the middle of summer. What do you guys think ? Any upgrades you guys recomend or don't recomend ? Also how would you rate the construction quality, I tend to keep my Rv's a long time had a coachmen Catalina for over 12 years.

It is roughly 48x80.

Just an FYI, the 15K upgrade is only $150 MSRP when buying new... about $100 retail. That is a cheap upgrade now, pretty expensive if you decide to do it later. The BHBE has a slideout, they aren't as well insulated as a non-slide model. I would encourage you to think it over before deciding not to upgrade.

I did the elite package on my 29QBS (included the hide a bed), the thermal, the upgraded AC, aluminum rims (wife's decision) and the cargo receiver hitch. We LOVE our new camper. We've only had it out 3 times so far (it takes a LOT longer with the second kid than it did with just one...). Next month we are gone for 9 days, then another 6 in August. The REAL test comes in February when we hit Florida for 2 weeks!

I have a 2015 Eagle 284BHBE. I went with the 15k upgrade on the A/C. We like to sleep in the cold, so if I lived in Florida, I would seriously consider a 2nd A/C in the bedroom.

We have the 28BHBE and did the AC upgrade and the thermal pack and I'm glad I did. In the direct sun when it was 96 outside it was able to get the inside to 75 but never got much lower than that. I worry t wouldn't have been able to get below 80 without the beefier AC and thermal pack. It is a big enough camper you can add a second AC. think about that for a sec. I would pay the small amount for the upgraded AC without a doubt. We were able to get the thermal pack for $150 as part of a promo. You can try and negotiate that in. We also negotiated a slide topper from the dealer as part of the sale. I wish I had added vent covers, thats now on my list. Construction quality I have been very pleased so far. 3 trips down the first really big one is next week. Only problems we have had have been little things. Popped seam on a dinette cushion, top bunk window is stuck and won't open. Stuff like that.

I suggest you pay the extra money for the 15K a/c upgrade.
