Jayco "expects" the dealer to do these things, probably as part of their dealer agreement.
So, the next time a dealer tries to charge you, I would point this out to them. It may not make a difference, but it can't hurt to point it out.
There is a line item on the buyers order and invoice called 'Dealer Handling'
At my dealer, this item has a charge for 499.00
They don't break it out beyond that, but the safe assumption is that fee is for *everything* the dealer does before, and during the PDI to deliver what is hopefully a trailer that is ready to go.
If anyone is buying a camper and they are paying for Dealer Handling AND they have additional charges for the pdi, battery install, etc. Negotiate that price out of the contract, or find a better dealer. Just my 2 cents worth.
