Jayco 2013 info

Hi, Thought I'd share some new info for 2013 Jayco Jay Feather's. I ordered a new 228 in early March, dealership messed up and didn't order it until 2 weeks later, so two weeks after it is ordered, my wife gets a call from the salesperson, you won't be getting a 2012, but a 2013 and the interior colors have changed. Copper is no longer available, new colors are Amber, Truffle, and Chocolate carries over. No color swatches, or fabric samples to go by, so not sure what any of them will look like. Hunted Jayco.com and found the colors, on other Jayco lines, but unsure if patterns stray the same or they will be all new in the Jay Feathers. Salesman was unsure of any other changes to 2013's at this point, and I can't find anything specific online anywhere, but from the sounds of it, the trailer should be on the assembly line this week, could be getting camper in early May.

Weclome to the forum, Isuduke. Sounds like your salesman could have done a better job but I'm pretty confident that you'll be pleased with your new Jayco. You might give Jayco a call and ask if they can send you some swatches. Sure can't hurt to try.

We had a similiar issue when ordering our 2012 321RLTS. Jayco changed the recliner cover to vinyl from cloth and added a new colour scheme. They make the changes without notifying the Dealers. We contacted Jayco directly and they provided pictures of the new colour scheme, highlighting the valance detail etc and said we could get the recliners covered in cloth at an extra cost, it was up to the Dealer if we got charged. Our Dealer found out it was a $500.00 dollar extra for both recliners. We said no and he checked further eventually absorbing the cost. This is the 3rd Jayco product we have bought from him.

Thanks for the welcome, I plan on soaking up as much info as I can from the camping vets. Yeah, not really impressed by the salesman, but my father in law bought his camper there and we got the family discount deal. As far as the swatches of the new fabrics, based on what he told my wife, they needed the answer the next day to start the production run, so I wouldn't have had time to see it and make a decision. I'll have to live with the decision, I am confident that I will be happy with my trailer no matter the color.

Welcome to the group.. I would be telling the dealer you are upset about not getting the color you ordered and ... some freebies would help you deal with the situation...

OK went to dealership this morning to figure out what was going on. As I walk in there are 2013 color charts for all model lines, apparently they got them yesterday, the Amber my wife was told was an option was somebody not reading the abbreviation for Amaretto correctly, I now know I'll be happy with Amaretto. It appear that all systems are go for delivery by 5/29. They tell me that it may be sooner as Jayco gets more delivery people driving soon, some take the winter off and will be starting back soon. Ok, I said now what about the changes to the Options, both salesperson and sales manager look at me like what are you talking about , I pull out my printout from Jayco showing the tech package I paid extra for isn't available and no idea what if any tv comes with my camper. A couple quick keystrokes, sales manager confirms that my order has the 22" HDTV listed as part of my camper, now I am relieved that it is again what I was looking to buy. Now we will have to see what the outside looks like with the new color scheme and graphics. So let the countdown begin t-minus 40 days and counting...:hihi: Now need the vin to make the bank happy.

also deleted from the 2013 line-up with the white steel wheels are the hubcaps. I found this out picking up our unit last friday 2-15-13. I was almost tempted to remove them from the 2010 x213 traded-in. So I found them at Eastern Marine in Delaware, measured the bolt circle and they have them for $2.99 each, I popped them on last nite.
