Hey guys thanks for the responses. I have not bought anything yet. I think at this point I have looked at every triple bunk hybrid made. I'm certainly not opposed to used, in fact that's primarily what I'm interested in. I keep coming back to the Jayco. When I looked at it and the surveyor side by side it just seemed better built somehow.

Anyway, I currently have made an offer on a used 2015 in E Lansing. Hopefully the dealer is still riding high off that football game that they will take my offer!!

Does the jayco warranty transfer to a new buyer?

Thought I'd update my old thread....

After much deliberation, I pulled the trigger on a like new 2014 x18d. It has the power awning and power tongue jack. I picked it up from a dealer in PA, paid $12800 with a Husky wdh and sway bar installed. I felt it was a great deal. Came with everything as new, all manuals, keys, etc. I haven't used it yet but I'm incredibly excited about it. I towed it home to Ohio about 100 miles and I am glad I didn't get anything bigger or heavier. I tow with a 2014 Durango v6 with 6200 towing capacity. That number is pure fantasy. This trailer is fine but I would not go bigger. Got 25mpg going to get it, and 12mpg towing it back. Into a major headwind though.

I lucked out and found a great place to store it close to my house. So, I towed it home and put it immediately into winter storage. Thought about a cover but I can't tell for sure if they're worth it.

I absolutely cannot wait to try it out come spring. It is a huge upgrade from my pop up.

Nice!

Ooh, that looks GREAT! Congratulations!

We tow with a V6 Envoy XL. Agree with you, its about as big/heavy as I'd go with it.

We upgraded from a 1995 pop up.. and we LOVE IT! I can capitalize that enough. We had such a great season. We are now mourning the onset of winter, and are praying for an early spring!!

Welcome to the club!

Actually 12 is pretty good. That's on the high side of towing any box down the freeway. I got 12 towing our old setup which was a 2003 Trailblazer with I6 and an '03 Kiwi 17a hybrid. That dropped to 8 when we got our X20E, and towing the X20E with the Sierra in my sig we get a consistent 10 mpg.

And congratulations!

Good to know. You gotta pay to play after all . It doesn't bother me anyway, the vehicle gets such good mileage the rest of the time.
