So is this dude trying to rip me off? or is that actually a thing? I thought it's standard on all viberglass trailers

I would keep the $1450. In my bank account and tell them thanks.

Smile Thanks for the info, and making myself known as a newbie.

It's late so I'm not gonna say a lot. While I've been a camper for years and even owned a camper long ago, I never pulled it. It stayed at a campground and they pulled it out for me.

I am about to receive delivery of a new 2017 Jayco x17z. Not a huge camper by any means, but PERFECT for me and my wife, our Cocker and our anticipated future grandchildren. Loved the features, light weight, etc. Always wanted a full blown motorhome, but this fits our needs, for now. (Don't tell the wife I said that, I've been forbidden from the upsize thing)

Thanks for all the great info this site offers, already had one question answered, and I look forward to visiting often.

WOW. Really? 120 Volt A/C for a Jayco Designer RV? I did not know this. Thank God I didn't put that 220 recepticle outside the garage to plug up the RV. So, 50 AMP 120 volt?

For you new camp trailer and 5th wheel owners make sure you block your trailer tires before you unhook from your tow vehicle. Also make sure you unhook your safety chains before you try to pull away from your trailer. One of my neighbors pulled his trailer off the blocks when he tried to drive away with the chains still hooked onto his pickup. Luckily it was in his drive way, he stopped before there was actually any damage done. I took my floor jack to his house, jacked up the trailer, Than he could back up and put it back on the ball. He than backed the camp trailer up the few inches to put things right again. He unhooked everything this time and all was fine. No visible damage done just a big lesson learned.

Thanks VicS1950. My 2018 Jay Flight 212QB is my second trailer and there's always something new to learn.

Question here: The awning on my new trailer is power run. Should we not have power sometime for whatever reason, how do you recommend I bring the awning in during a storm or time to leave?

Your awning should be run off your trailer battery so you should have power even when you don't have shore power. If your battery is completely dead you can plug your trailer back in to your tow vehicle to supply power and bring your awning in.
