2015 Jayco X20E: Good deal or not?

Hi y'all...shopping around for our first hybrid. Is $18,500 (not inc. taxes) a good deal? Thanks in advance.

If it makes you feel better, we special ordered and paid significantly more but I believe we piled on just about every upgrade. If Jayco offered a 10 person jacuzzi, the Big Guy would have ordered it.

We really fell in love with the x23b, but it was too heavy for our tow vehicle and it felt a little long/big for us. the 20e has almost the same interior with the excess length mostly taken out of the galley area. This was a no brainer for us as we really don't cook and no one wants to do dishes. The slide seems almost magical in the floor area that it adds when deployed and it is a cinch for us to load our bikes inside the trailer.

We are making many fine and some hilarious memories. First time pulling it out of its "camper cave" we managed to take out part of the 14' door; first boondocking experience ever, we arrived at site in dark, no lights, on a fairly steep dirt site, and it was 37 degrees when we arrived. We perched the TT on the slope, prayed that the burners would light so we could heat water and then settled for a big bottle of vodka and laughed ourselves silly when our lynx levelers (the orange patties) were last seen winging their way off the cliff edge next to us.

We are definitely urban cowboys and probably way off the age scale for being newbies, but love the adventure of it all.

Enjoy!

Now that's a very funny post and I hope we get a lucky chance to camp next to you sometime.

Tunce - At least we are on the same coast, so you never know . . . with the possible exception of some full timers, the rest of us are supposedly doing this for fun, so we try to keep everything in perspective. I call our TT ownership our "poor man's yoga studio". We are so much better at crouching; crawling; wriggling; squirming; etc from all the time we spend under the TT, hitch or TV looking up at something and wondering "what the hell was that noise"? We had never even rented a TT before buying one, so we really are newbies.

If you are headed to SoCal, let us know. We have not ventured far because Homer the Beagle (from Hell) is evidently gaining weight at a rate that is limiting our ability to tow for long distances. Well, at least that is our working theory, because SOMEONE or something is adding weight and the dog is the only one who might confess to being the problem.

For our 2015 purchase, we are eying something about the size of a Peterbilt for our next TV and then there will be no stopping us . . .

Hope to see you around and thanks for the comment.

We do the California coast yearly and go as far as Pismo Beach. This year we would like to go inland a bit so let you know the plan is when we get the family out of the way. They visit from LA each year at Pismo.
Wife said I'm making the dog fat but you know that's not true.

To me that is alot of $$$$ for a hybrid but looking at the same place I bought my 28BHBE at the price is right inline with mine, here is a link to the dealer I went thru X20E

Also, I believe that the shipping charge is higher for those of us who are farthest from the plant. Good luck. Either way, you are going to love your x20e.

Good depending on what's prevailing in your area and the time of year. Both have a bit to do with price negotiations. We bought ours in May of 2013, right at the beginning of the season here, so we didn't get that much of a discount, we paid a little more than your price. If we had bought in the winter or right after the show, we probably would have saved another $2k but our circumstances didn't allow us to buy earlier, and we didn't want to wait another year.

X2!

Take a look at my drawer mod. The lack of a drawer is one of our few peeves about the X20E.

Going price for the X20E up here is in the neighborhood of $24 - 26K Canadian. You can do the conversion.

I bought my 1 year old 2013 X20E for $18500. the 2014 on the lot at the time was $24500. Again this is Canadian Currency.

Your price seems in line with a deal.
