I went in to CW in Roseville to check it out. Indeed, no Jayco's there, but I did have a good experience with the sales lady - Courtney. She wasn't at all too pushy and offered to let me check things out on my own if I wanted. Unfortunately, they didn't have a single 17' bunk style trailer like the jayco 154BH, but she said they are suppose to be getting in a coleman and starcraft ar-one version of it in the next few weeks. Doesn't sound the like baja or extreme style package will be easy to get in those brands, but at least I will be able to do some comparing and price matching. I also went back to rv's of sac to look at the 154 some more. Overall the same type of experience. I even got the "we won't service it if you don't buy it from us" speech. He started backing off of that a little but left it at "well, we pretty much just service what what we sell". That being said, they do sound very eager to offer up deals right now, so if I really want that jayco I should be able to get a good price in the next few months.

Anyways, I will feel a little better if I have a few models and dealers to compare and shop with.

Thanks,
Don

I got that same speech, and he said he would get the coach in ASAP if it needed warranty service, I pointed out to him that in most cases if you needed work done it would be on the road somewhere hundreds of miles from Sacramento as the issues normally turn up on a trip, not sitting in your RV space at home. Sorry there were no Jayco's there, I must have been seeing things when I was there, and yes Courtney is a nice lady, easy to deal with and not pushy at all. Reggie at RV's of Sac was another matter.

We purchased our Jayco from Pan-Pacific RV in Morgan Hill/San Martin - due to competition turf, they can't "sell" Jaycos at their Sacramento or French Camp locations - but I suggest it is "worth a call" to talk to their service department ... and to perhaps even talk to their Morgan Hill/San Martin location about prices and have a 'local' pick-up at their other sites. BTW, we were very pleased with Pan-Pacific RV, Morgan Hill/San Martin - in regards to sales (purchased through Costco plan), service, and warranty!

Thanks for the info. I've been into pan pacific here in sac a few times and liked working with Charles there. They don't have anything that suites my needs on this lot or on their website for all three locations, but maybe a call to that location will yield some different results.

Thanks again.

The CW here has been pretty good on servicing my other 2 coach's and I never had an issue with them, did have to wait a week for parts once but that's not their fault. I can't speak for others, I did have a house battery melt down out in Minnesota and the CW there changed it out in 30 minutes free of charge, which is fast enough for anybody. I do most all of my own work and accessory installs so only take it in for warranty service and tune ups.

Welcome!


Just some food for thought, but have you considered one of the Hybrid TT's? In a given trailer length, you get a lot more of the floor space given over to living space since the bunks don't take away any living space. For our family of 4, having all that extra space is great in inclement weather, plus I like the sound of rain on the canvas over my head more than the sound on a hard shell roof.

I guess I havn't been too into the hybrids because of the additional moving parts and more to go wrong with the canvas, etc.... Truth is though, I'm basing this all on zero experience. Maybe I'll check a few of them out. I have to admit though, the kids liked the bunks when we looked in some of them. They each had their own little space. I guess that will wear off when they get a little older, but it's not like the same trailer will fit our needs forever. Thanks for the input on the hybrid though.

Although we didn't have a hybrid - we did start out with Coleman Tent Trailers (owned two of them, still own the 2nd one). Like DonM, we live in California where one camps year-around ~ however the canvas aspect doesn't regulate the temperature meaning heat loss with the furnace blasting or sweltering on the hotter days. It was my griping that caused us to move-up from tents to the tent trailer (finally refused to continue sleeping on the ground with the Samoyeds nesting on my sleeping bag) and again from the tent-trailer to the travel trailer (finally refused to continue suffering temperature extremes); now I'm the Happy Camper!
