You will have to either go to a dealer and they have access to the pics or you might call Jayco customer service. You will need the VIN number. It takes at least 3 weeks to get them from the factory. We paid for ours and will pick it up in the spring.

Talked to the dealer today and they knew nothing about factory accessories - Jayco needs a decent web site with the available options.

Thanks!

But no pictures and no costs.

I have seen a flipout kitchen counter top extension in a picture on this forum - but can't find it anywhere on the Jayco site.

Go to RVDirect.com to get prices. The Jayco website had seven pictures but I didn't transfer them over since I couldn't put more than four in a post. Use Google Image search to try to find more pictures (be careful here; Google Image search uses a really fuzzy search and a lot of unrelated photos will show up). Also, some dealers put up slide shows of their stock that will do a better job of showing what is available than Jayco does on their site. A regular Google search will find those but you have to go through a lot of junk hits to find them. Just use "Jayco" (no quotes) and your trailer number for search words.

Flashman,

Nice creative storage mod, and taking advantage of the limited space on the TT A-frame.

One thing you may want to confirm is how much your loaded TT tongue weight has increased. Had a friend add a large metal storage box to his TT A-frame a few years ago, his TV and TV receiver could handle the added weight, but the loaded tongue weight exceeded his existing 1,000lb spring bar rating. He upgraded to 1,200lb spring bars and he was good to go.

Just food for thought.

Bob

Spring bar? I don't have any sway control - dealer didn't even try to sell me one - said truck-trailer did not need it - the truck is 1ton Dodge diesel and thinks nothing of pulling that little trailer.

Flashman,

No question that your TV won't even know the loaded 22Fb is behind it, but the loaded tongue weight is a separate issue.

The WDH (weight distribution hitch) spring bars having nothing to do with sway control, they are part of the WDH assembly (sounds like you don't have a WDH). Your correct that some trucks may not need a WDH (depending on the TV and TT loaded weight), but in some cases as weight is added to the TT tongue the loaded weight may exceed the weight limits of the TV's reciever...., and/or WDH spring bars.

Your TV's receiver has two different weight limits assigned to it: the first is "weight carrying", the second is "weight distribution". Assuming you don't have a WDH, then you are using your TV's receiver in the "weight carrying mode", which means the total tongue weight is resting on the hitch ball without and assistance from a WDH....., which may be ok.

I'm just suggesting that checking the sticker on your TV's receiver for your "weight carrying" mode limit, then confirm that your new loaded tongue weight doesn't exceed it.

Bob

Thanks for the lecture!

Have you heard of the TOW BEAST?? by Reese - a 2.5 inch receiver hitch. The non WDH weight carrying mode - weight rating is 1,200 lbs - enough I think.

Specs below

Designed for Full-Size Trucks, Vans and Utility Vehicles with Full Frames and Heavy-Duty Suspensions
Ideal for Marine and Commercial Use
Strong, Secure Heavy-Duty Side Bracket Design
2Ĺ" Square Receiver Tube Opening
All Frame Attachment
Welded Electrical Bracket Included
E-Coat Base w/ Black Powder Coat Finish - Withstands 1000 Hour Salt Spray Testing per ASTM B117 Standards
Rated up to 18,000 lbs. (GTW) Weight Carrying (WC)
Rated up to 18,000 lbs. (GTW) with Weight Distributing (WD)
Solid All-Welded Construction for Maximum Strength and Safety
Custom Built According to Manufacturer & Model Year
Ensures Perfect Fit and Top Towing Performance
Computer-Aided Design and Fatigue Stress Testing
Designed to Withstand Road Abuse Within Specified Capacities
Backed by a Nationwide Limited Lifetime Warranty



WC Tongue Weight: 1,200 lbs.
WC Carrying Weight: 12,000 lbs.
WD Tongue Weight: 1,700 lbs.
WD Carrying Weight: 14,000 lbs.





After all the 2 gennys weigh a whole ~ 80 lbs combined - and the boxes and frame add another 70 lbs - and remeber the gennys used to ride in the pass thru storage - right up front so I have added a whole 70 lbs.

I KNOW what I am doing. I am not suggesting that this mod will work for everyone - just wanted to show what I did.

Then I apologize that I came across that way, wasn't my intention. What thru me off was the comment that the dealer made the initial hitch recommendations, weight has been added since then, and it wasn't clear if the tongue weight had been taken into consideration....., but your latest post clarified that.

On some occasions I will tend to go into a little more detail than required when discussing weight considerations, but I make a strong effort not to be critical in presentation. In doing so I hope that some of the folks reading some threads that don't have the level of knowledge as some of us are made aware that some conditions (mods, cargo placement, etc.) can impact towing safety.

Again, apologize for the mis-understanding.

Bob
