Ordered a 30.5 bhlt.

I have been trying to get into a Jayco for a few years but something was always lacking and kept me from buying one. It was not quality or service but simply options that I desired. Now Jayco has it together and I just ordered a full load on a 30.5bhlt except the second air cond [but i did upgrade to 15k].
It is good to see that Jayco is listening to their dealers and giving us many options to choose from instead of this is what you get.
Now, the wait while it is built....hopefully not too long!

I took the one off the dealer's lot. It had Aluminum wheels, the Revolution pin box, and Electric rear jacks. I wished that it had the 15K air conditioner, but we camp mostly in the north east in wooded areas so it shouldn't be a necessity. So far it seems to be a very nice unit and pulled easily with my 03 Ford.

Great! Thanks for the update! So have you already planned the maiden voyage for when you bring it home?

We planned a trip with the old camper, the 30.5 BHLT is already sitting in the driveway, and necessary modifications already begun!

[QUOTE=nylyon;20103]I took the one off the dealer's lot. It had Aluminum wheels, the Revolution pin box, .

What do you think of the Reese pinbox? I was on the fence between the Reese and the New Mor-ride option.
The 13.5k air unit on my last trailer worked well on a unit a little bigger with less insulation[some days never shut off]. The last few years I full-time for work in mine form May to late Nov. So this time I went with the double-pane windows and the Glacier insulation package along with the 15k.

Glad to here it pulls well.

Thanks for all the congrats!

My last 5th wheel experience was my parents new 1988 Terry 5th pulled by a long bed F250, then F350. Of course with a long bed there isn't any clearance issue. I was a little concerned about having the pivot point back further and thought that is may induce sway but I encountered nothing of the sort. To get the trailer in my driveway I have to cut 2 hard turns. Backing up this 5th was effortless, the Reese performed perfectly with no slider or clearance issues to worry about. My dealer told me that they order almost all their new Jayco's with the revolution because of the popularity of the short bed pickups. I looked long and hard when making my initial turns, and it isn't even close to having an issue. An added benefit is that the pin swings out of the way when parked so there is no chance of walking into it! I haven't hooked up yet, that is supposed to be a slight challenge, but honestly I don't think that it will be too bad.

You did the right thing by getting the larger A/C. I wonder if the main A/C could be used in the bedroom (there's already a circuit breaker for 2nd A/C in the panel so it's likely wired for it)? If so, maybe an upgrade mod would be in the future?

You're going to like this unit, for my family it fits the need almost perfectly.

I hope your new trailer lives up to your expectations. I know ours does.
