Hello from Ohio

Hello Everyone!

My wife and I along with our 4 year old daughter are headed to MI from Northeast Ohio to check out a 2012 Jayco 31.5FBHS at Haylett Auto & RV on Saturday morning! This rig looks amazing from the video that we saw from the dealer!

We have a PDI checklist that we are bringing along with us. Any additional questions or thoughts that can be provided to us will be appreciated.

We are moving up from a 2008 Keystone 26 RLS. The rear living just isn't cutting it now with our daughter. It is a great camper and we enjoyed it so much. It pulled like a dream with the ProPride Hitch!

Thanks and we look forward to becoming an active member of the forum!

Thank you everyone for the kind words! We are leaving in a few hours and will stay in a Hotel close to the dealership. This will be a fun little road trip!

Welcome from a fellow NE Ohioian.

I have checked that dealer out a bit. Were they fair with your trade value? (If you traded in that is)

Thanks Everyone! We did purchase the 5th wheel on Saturday! I will go back in about a month or so to pick it up. Now I need to decide on a 5th wheel hitch!

I'm currently leaning towards the Pullrite SuperGlide. I will be pulling the Jayco 31.5 FBHS with a 2014 Ram 3500 Crew Cab, Single Wheel, 4x4, CTD. I would love to get the Anderson Ultimate but I don't want to find out the hard way that I needed a sliding hitch!!
