Fair Price for a 2013 Jayco Jay Feather 17z

Good afternoon! Happy April everyone! New poster here. I have been a Jayco pop up owner in the past and have LOVED the quality of Jayco. No comparison. I have decided after doing all my research and comparison that the 2013 Jayco Jay Feather 17z is the unit that I'm wanting to get into with my family. I am wondering what would be a fair price to get into this particular unit? I know that the MSRP is just a little over $20 Grand. I have seen some sale prices from local dealerships around $15,500. What should I be paying for this unit? Also, I'd love to hear from some of the 17z owners sounds off on their experience with the Jayco 17z.

Thanks Everyone!

$15500 sounds like a very fair price, we have dealers around here asking more in the $17000+ range. Our dealer is selling them for a little under 15500.

Thanks for the feedback! Tell me what your experience has been with you Z? How many do you have in your family? Did you ever look at one of the larger hybrids in the Jayco family? Like the 19H?

We love our 17Z. We spent 12 years in motorhomes and downsized to the Z with the idea of going as light and lean as possible. We have only one regret concerning the Z... the fact that we didn't go this route sooner!

My wife and I use it with two teens and it is all we need.

Good to hear. We have three small boys. I think the Z will work nicely.

We found RV Direct to be fair.

17Z has been great for us! We have 2 small kids, started in 2010 when they were 2 yrs old. Camper has been great, no warranty issues, nothing to gripe about. There are lots of 17Z owners on this forum that will say the same. It's a great floorplan in a small unit. Regarding the price, get a quote from RV Direct and bring it to your dealer and see if they will get close. If I had the storage room and the $ I would have got the 19H but no regrets so far.
