2012 Jayco 19h owners, skylight in shower?

We will be taking ownership of a 2012 Jayco 19h on Tuesday and after signing the papers and putting $200 down, I just realized that it may not have a skylight in shower as our trade 2010 17z does!!

Anyone have a skylight, don't see it as an option in brochures and don't know if they all come this way.

Thinking of having dealer install one if not, like the extra light besides the fan above toilet, cost??? $500 with install???

Any tips we should look for upon inspection, problems, etc.

parker,

makes me nervous too, but I have searched another site and someone said they had it done for $425, plus we had an a/c put in a pop up we used to have, and ehow.com shows you how to do it on a rubber roof, wouldn't do it myself though.

If you could look sometime too at your new trailer, bathroom sink drain, the stopper, can you lift it a little and turn to let water drain without filling sink, and leaving stopper in, our 17z you could do this and I noticed on the new one you can't, it seems that they left out the flange that goes in sink?? I told dealer about it and they said they would put some epoxy in there on 2 sides to hold stopper up a little.

It's listed under options in the build your own on Jayco site.

My 11 model has one. It's nice but not something I would have added extra, the 07 model my dad had did not so I know its not a deal breaker. I don't think I would shell out the extra cash for it if it did not have one.

I have a 2012 19H, and it has the skylight above the tub, and I had the fantastic fan installed where the stock fan/ vent was.

The wife and I went to the Jayco dealer, toured the 2012 X17Z on the showroom floor and loved it. We ended up purchasing the X17Z and the salesman said they would prep one of the models they had in the remote lot (we wanted one of the models that had the two 20lb propane bottles instead of the 30lb bottle). My wife wanted to see the trailer prior to the pick up date, but they said that was not possible at the time because the trailers were very close together. However, they assured us we would go over the whole trailer prior to us accepting it.

A couple of days later, we did the walk thru. The trailer was done beauifully and we were loving it. However when we got to the bathroom, she noticed that the skylight was not in this trailer. The showroom model had the skylight, but this one did not. It seems that Jayco did some running changes to their line (propane bottles, light fixtures and skylights). The changes must have come at different times. In any event, we wanted the skylight, so the dealer had all their available personnel prep the showroom trailer for us in about 1 hour time (they looked like bees buzzing around the trailer).

See if your dealer has any other 19H's on the lot before purchasing. Assuming it is the same as the 17Z line, they might has incorporated those changes at various times in the 2012 production cycle and their might be one on the lot with the skylight.

The 11 model has a lot of stuff the 12's don't. A tub around to start with. Also the pretty fake glass cabinet doors.

I was glad I was able to get mine back in April, it was a left over 11 model, with a bunch of extras. The only thing I could not add was the bigger AC unit. It has the Coleman Mach AC. Before you buy, take a screw driver and check the cabinet hinge screws. My second trip out, all the doors started pulling off because the screws were stripped. Its an easy fix, but I want to take it back to the dealer for a couple of other things.

The last 2 trailers we have owned have had skylights cracked due to hail. I for one could live without it.
