Ordering New 2016 Greyhawk

Hi all
Ordering a new 31DS
Black Crimson Paint w aluminum wheels

Any issues with the 2016 I should look for
I read about a vibration issue
Also is it easy to add a blu ray player

Like the layout
Would like to swap sofa for power recliners someday
For now use an ottoman

Calling Jayco to see if they can put larger cab over tv in

Any thoughts appreciated
Thank y'all

You might want to add dealer installed slide toppers.

Also Progressive Industries electrical management system. If nothing else you supply the unit and they can supply the labor. You will be better off with an installed unit over a portable unit.

And 3X on the slide toppers.

I had dealer install slide toppers and Maxx Air covers also. The 2016 Greyhawks being sold now have had the transmission vibration fixed before the dealer gets them. I bought mine last July before the problem was found and it has the vibration. My MH is in Indiana getting some body work done (not my fault!!) and then will get the tranny fixed at Jayco.

My buddy has slide toppers and he does not recommend them. He says he still has to go up top and clean the slides before closing and the toppers just get in the way.

Have them provide a spare tire mounted on appropriate wheel and have it thrown into the deal at no charge. Much to consider on this but why wait roadside for hours and hours only to find that your rescue service doesn't have the right sized spare. Have read stories where some did not have the proper jack! You can also get stuck for hundreds of dollars having to buy a tire replacement on the spot that doesn't even match what you already have. Thus you go to town and spend even more money to get the right match. There will be naysayers on this for sure but I would say you need that spare tire.
