Can't wait to see pics Ry, as far as skylights, yes confirmed on all 2013 ultra lites, got email from Jayco yesterday. Confirmed with dealership today, delivery of my 13 supposed to be by 5/29 I suspect it will look very different from yours, new color scheme and decals outside. You will have to let us know how the window works for you. I posted the info from Jayco under 2013 info topic here in ultra Lites section if interested.

As well when they install the window we are having the skylight over the tub added, $425, as the unit did not come with it. Ours is a 2012 model and what I have seen so far the 2013 are coming with the skylight. I never really thought about the tub surround. May be something we will have to look at after we get the trailer home. They are hoping to have the window next week and we can take delivery end of April, beginning of May. Really looking forward to getting ours so I can load this big pile of stuff into it and out of my garage. I will post pictures of the window mod once it's in. Ryan
We looked at RV City but their prices seemed a little out of line compared to AllStar and Western RV. The tub surround was my wife's request, I was not real happy about spending more money but the more I think about it I am glad we did it. I am hoping that ours ends up being a 2013 and has the skylight that would be a nice bonus. What are you pulling yours with?

We are towing ours with a 2011 Ford Explorer. Towed a friends trailer last summer with it. It had similar weight (4600 lbs loaded) and had more than enough power. We just need to watch our axle weights closely to ensure we stay within its limits. Ryan

We are pulling ours with our 4-runner, hope it works out ok. Just found out that our trailer is 2012 not a 2013...was hoping for the skylight but I guess I'll have to live without it. It's still sitting on the Jayco lot but should be here by next Saturday. Can't wait!!

Congrats as we'll to you, Lsuduke on 228 purchase. It seems we are getting more and more 228 owners here as spring continues on.
Maybe we will see you around Jayco 228. We have already booked second and third week of July for Calgary/Drumheller and the last week of July for Jasper. Ryan

Had hoped to have it before memorial day, for first trip but not looking like it so far, my father in law just offered to drive to factory to get it. Will have to see if that is an option. First time I'll be using it is August for the Watkins Glen Nascar weekend, have that booked and confirmed, if the opportunity comes up before then, I'll be on it. Just went shopping for some supplies, making the list for items we will need and buy when its on sale. Just replaced my directv receiver that will be going on the road with us. Keeping an eye on the countdown.

Where do you camp by Calgary? We are probably going to do a weekend trip down to Cowtown to go to the zoo. We usually camp at the lions park in Okotooks, it's not too far out of town.

We stay at the Calgary West Campground. It's nice, fairly clean and a twenty minute drive to the zoo. They have a nice heated pool, mini golf and a small playground. We don't usually spend a lot of time there as we usually get up, head to the zoo and don't get back until after supper. We are typically gone the next day. Ryan

Thanks Ry-guy. We will have to check that out.
