If you are going to travel ... go for the gusto!

Hehe, guess you need to make a trip to California ~ our dealer (Pan Pacific RV) has a couple (use the filters to find the Jayco White Hawks) in their inventory! What a round trip THAT would be!!

Just like Hattie, you can see by my signature, we have a 25BHS as well. It just so happened to be the bathroom that sold us. We went in understanding this to be our RV TT, and used for camping and hunting, so we don't expect nor want it to be like a house. When we saw the bathroom with the sink and medicine cabinet corner mounted and the angle of the toilet along with the space in the bathroom we were sold. There is actually enough room for both of us to be in the bathroom at the same time, and with the sink and vanity at the same angle, it makes utilizing the sink so much easier.

Something else people don't think about - STORAGE! DH refuses to drill holes or add Command hooks so I must be creative in coping. As the virtual tour shows, between the sink and tub/shower there are two "two-hook" hangers for LONG towels, at the sink counter there is one more for washcloths. The corner vanity holds surprisingly a lot - and we stash the hairdryer on top when at the campsite. The corner sink has storage under it that is also sufficient - I added a rack there to give me additional storage space for things like tp, cleaners, shampoo/rinse, extra supplies. For our personal products, we each have a plastic shoebox with lid that can be stacked on the bathroom floor or stored in the sleeping area. There is also room for a small waste basket. The shower/tub is of good size (DH is 6'-1"); he added a water shut-off and I added a shower splash guard on the left side. The toilet is well-sized and with plenty of knee room. That said, where the CG has good facilities - we use that so we don't have to use the dump-stations as frequently.

I'm a California native, ancestors came during the Gold Rush era and many were in SF during the 1906 earthquake. It is a great place to visit. If you are looking for a unique California trip tied-in with any of the Pan Pacific RV locations (cuz they have a TT you want) ... here are a few hints for enjoying their locales:
  1. Sacramento: make it a gold rush trip, visit Sutter's Mill (where the first nugget was found), Sacramento's Old Town and stay on the paddle-wheeler (Delta King hotel), travel down Hwy 49 to see all the old towns (Columbia is a real treat), and at the bottom of Hwy 49 you are so close to the southern entrance of Yosemite! Campgrounds abound.
  2. French Creek: Delta life - fishing, waterskiing, and interesting sights. We always find our Stockton RV location VERY relaxing and you can fish from your RV!
  3. Morgan Hill: Near a Camping World, close to beach camping (30 minutes over the coastal range), and not too far from San Francisco ~ take the 90-min train ride from San Jose to SF ~ use the ride up to plan the day and the ride back to rest, you can bring/eat food on the train! 3-4 day trips and you'll see the highlights (Fisherman's Wharf, Alcatraz, Chinatown, Union Square, Golden Gate Park and museums, etc.); public transportation in SF is great and walking is easy (and healthy).

I do like the idea if calling a jayco rep and see,if one is with 4-5 hours of me. Figure that's all I'll get the wife to ride for a look. That's Richmond to Charlotte to Myrtle Beach. I just wanna see one. Lack of a couch has hit me but we don't Really sit in it. By the time we crawl into the TT We are hitting the sack. When my tow limit I have to give up something. Wife's mandatory queen size bed. Both her and my mandatory has to have a useable bathroom. She absolutely refuses to use the bath house and I'm 6'5 so I have leg placement issues. Our current bath is very challenging for a gymnast of which we aren't. I want a slide out at least one for space and an outdoor kitchen. Bunkhouse is nice both for our son and storage but not required. And everything must come under a 6500lbs tow limit. This model hits it all. Think I'll call Jayco and have them find me one.
When we decided on our 2014 WH 30dsre we wanted to put our eyes on one before ordering. Found one about 75 miles away but not the options we wanted and the dealer wouldn't dicker on the price. Said it was to late to order one [end of 2013 model year]. Like the model and ordered from the dealer near the Jayco plant in Middlebury. Only 6 weeks from order and delivery so gave me time to get my Keystone sold. Ended up coming in as a 2014 at same price.

Order what you want from an online dealer unless a local dealer will match or get close to the price. Local dealer service for a TT you bought elsewhere is overrated, but that has been argued on other threads.

The one I got the "DEAL"on is a place up in Indiana, Rvexpress. 30% off msrp. Coworker turned me on to them. They knocked 40k off his 43 foot voltage 5th wheel. I have no problem driving to get it. I just want to make sure that's what we want before buying.
