They did say they sold a lot of the Jay Flight 26BH and that's why they were able to get such a great price on it.


I'm not sure. I think price is dependent on dealer overhead, an eager salesperson as well as other factors. Also, right now, if they have a lot of 2016's of a certain model on the lot they may be looking to unload as everything built around early April or later will be a 2017. Did you get prices on units on their lot or were you getting a price on a unit you built online and that would be built with your options?

My custom ordered 2017 28BHBE with every option available except sway control, tv ($750 is crazy for a 39") and bumper grill was 24,486 out the door and on the road (taxes and all).

So:
Customer value package
15k btu ac
elite package (now standard but I was ordering based on 2016 specs)
Fiberglass sidewalls
2nd ac bedroom
50 amp service
Thermal package
Hide a bed
Electric stabilizers
Cargo accessory receiver
Aluminum rims
Roof ladder

Dealer and same salesperson I bought the first camper from in pa said they couldn't even get in the same ballpark as far as price and offered me a Salem trailer (not even sure if that was the brand or model). They are good people and nice but they were about $4k more... And again RV connection in Indiana was only $500 more but said the couldn't delete two standard items I didn't want (and RV one said no problem).

Not sure if it would change much but I could give you my sales lady email address. She has been great at responding to my requests. I tried to negotiate the price even lower but she said that was the best she could do. From my own checking it was still the best deal but I figured I'd try...

That is definitely a great price (I looked at the MSRP and all the options you added). I might try them again, but I think I found the place I'm going to buy from (more on that later, once I close the deal).

The price they gave me was for a 2016 model that was on the lot. From the looks of it (starting to rust on the bottom) it had been there a while. When I asked about pricing for a new one off the line, there was not much difference in price. The sales person said the prices won't go down on the 2016 model they had in stock until December (2016) which I find very hard (i.e. impossible) to believe.

I felt I got a good deal, and since they agreed within minutes they probably would have gone lower.
I had a trade in, so that helped.

They have gone above and beyond on warranty repairs and are easy to deal with.
But the service department is always backed up and sometimes they can take some time to get things done. They do try to do their best. They are going 7 days a week.
Parts department is notoriously over priced though.
Thanks for the info :-)

The sales person I spoke to over the phone (can't remember his name, it was a while ago) was easy to talk to.

More New Yorkers here...

Two years ago we were in the market. Started out looking at web sites and stopped at 2 local dealers. Didn't like anything they had. Then, the next week we were on vacation and happened to drive by a Jayco dealer in the 1000 Islands. We saw the model that fit our needs to a "T", so when we got home I looked for a local dealer. Turned out to be the one previously mentioned on Southwestern, and he had 1 in stock.

I had a lot of requirements - wanted local financing, a whole list of dealer installed options, wanted to trade in a well used 50 year old RV, wanted the new one delivered and set up, and the old one moved and removed. I had an idea what I was going to pay, based on the dealer we saw on vacation, and knew how far I was willing to haggle. I also wanted to buy a Yami generator and have it set up by them as well.

Made everything known to the SalesLady. She said Ok and went to talk to the manager.

When she came back she flored me. The gave me $100 trade in, they waived the delivery, dealer prep and set up, they included all the options at no charge, priced the trailer $2000 below what I was willing to spend for the trailer alone, and priced the generator at wholesale.

Ruined my day. I couldn't haggle, just took the deal!

In the end they did everything they said they would and we couldn't be more pleased.

The biggest advice in the WNY area is avoid Buffalo RV, and Colton RV. Other than that welcome and nice to see others from my neck of the woods! If you want a weekend trip that great for kids any age and adults I have to say check out the KOA in Medina. They are the reason I bought ours and am going seasonal this year.

Thanks for the info on KOA in Medina, looks like a nice place. Yes, I purchased my last trailer (used Jayco popup) from Colten RV... don't get me started on how that went!

Thank You

Thank you to EVERYONE who gave me a lead or just words of encouragement!

My search is over!

I put a down payment on a Jay Feather 25BH with JTS (Jim's Trailer Sales) in Grafton, OH. I spoke to Jimmy (the owner) on the phone last Saturday, he seemed very down to earth and easy to talk to. I told him where I was from and what model I was interested in. The ones he had coming in didn't have exactly what I wanted so he put me on hold for a couple minutes to work up a quote for a new one off the line. I was very happy with the price he gave me and told him I'd call back Monday or Tuesday after I called our DMV to find out if I'd have to pay tax both in Ohio and New York (I don't).

I called him back Monday and asked for a few more options (outside kitchen, roof ladder, etc). He gave me a new price based on the additional options and I put down the deposit. BTW, he asked a little more than you might expect for a down payment because he never met me in person, which I think is completely understandable. I got the sense that he would have taken less for the deposit if I put up a fuss, but I didn't have a problem with it so I was happy to put down what he asked. I only mention this in case anyone else in my situation is interested in buying from them. Again, I think it was a very reasonable request, I just don't want anyone to be surprised.

Between Saturday and Monday, I think I spent a total of 15 minutes on the phone with him (OK 20 minutes, but the last 5 was giving him my credit card info and discussing the different options for the interior fabric). It was less painful than any other RV or automobile purchase I've ever made and I came away very excited about the purchase and not exhausted like I spent a week in the trenches.

I'll update everyone once my trailer comes in, but I'm expecting everything to go well :-)

Thanks to all,
Len

Congrats Len. Did he mention what/if any options will be different on the 2017 Jay Feather lineup? It feels good when the buying process is quick and pretty painless doesn't it? Happy for you...
