That seems like a good price! What are you getting for options with that?

The dealer said they would install a Dual Cam weight system. Another thing to research. Do I need to include the weight of that as well?

I think you do need to include that in the weight as well. Did it come with any options? TV, power tongue jack, roof ladder, hide a bed, etc? I would recommend the power tongue jack.

If it was me, I'd probably feel more comfortable with more room under towing and gcwr cap. I'd probably stick to something in the 4,000-4500 lb dry range, given the gearing and 4 speed transmission. Would be a little less "maxed out".
That is what found for horsepower/torque. It is hard to find what we are looking for in the 4000-4500 lb range that will sleep 8-10. We really want to stick with a local dealer as well. I looked at a Coachmen Apex, same layout and about 450 lbs lighter but it is over 100 miles away and the Jayco seems to be better quality.

WOW, that's a great price. I got all the same options excluding the the power stabilizer jacks and paid 23,900 fees included.

That is the price for the trailer. With taxes, title, tag, fees, installed brake control ($150), and dual cam weight system ($1000) the total out the door quote is $23488. I think I can do better on the the weight control bars but have not gotten that far on the research.

Yes, allow about 70lbs against the TV's payload.

FYI, depending on the product rating the ship weight on a Reese Strait-Line WDH (with Dual Cam) is 70lbs to 90lbs.
