Could you build one for us with this configuration? If so, this would be the perfect trailer for us. Contact me if you have questions or comments.
Refrigerator access while we travel was/is not really an issue for us. If you do need access just move the slide out enough to get to it...the slides being electric you can do this without having to extend all the way.

We carry a cooler for drinks/food in the 'puller'.

Let us know what you find out and hope you get your 'perfect camper'.

Before I ordered our Eagle I sent an email question to Jayco regarding the height of the pin and the type of truck I was ordering. I had a concern that the new 4WD F350 may be too high for the Eagle and wanted to make sure I ordered the correct truck, as I would have gotten the 2WD if height was an issue. I didn't get a response from them at all, and proceeded to order the 4WD. When I ordered my trailer the dealer implied that I may have an issue with truck height, so I was concerned. The dealer did specify that my trailer be assembled with the springs on the lowest hanger hole to add a bit extra height to the trailer, which ended up costing an additional $126, which was well worth it as I have plenty of bed clearance, although we have to use an additional step when set up in many sites (a bit of a pain but worth it for the peace of mind when getting into many sites and gas stations). Since I now have my trailer and a VIN, Jayco answers my questions promptly.

Just notified that our Pinnacle has arrived at our dealer in So. Cal.

Now we are really excited and March 15 cannot come soon enough.

No, do it on your time table, don't try to "fit it in" cause you could miss something in the walk through if you are hurried. Especially on a long distance purchase as you are doing.

I know you saw my thread at RV.net about my roof. We too bought long distance, went to Prescott AZ in December. The deal went relatively smooth but due to our time constraints I allowed myself to hurry through the walk through and though the dealer did a good job of making the unit ready for us there were a couple of things we let slide till we got home. Fortunately we have been able to have those items fixed by the local Jayco dealer with no hassle. I will say however, had I been able to get up on the roof at that time and saw the condition of the roof material I would have insisted it be corrected or no deal. The temps the night before we took delivery were in the teens and the roof was iced over pretty good. It would have been suicide to get on that roof at that time. What I could see from the ladder looked ok to me, but again there was a lot of ice up there.

Good luck with your new Pinnacle they are beautiful trailers.

Steve

We would like nothing better to go down now but schedule does not permit.

Plan on leaving really early (probably 5am) on March 15 for the 475 mile drive and then do the walk thru which will not be a rush job.

The roof is the first place I go after seeing some of the problems recently on message boards. Hopefully any problems will be documented/noted as they will be up on the roof installing a Max-Air.

The dealer has offered us to stay overnight and run things with tanked water and their electric after the walk thru and if any issues they can take care while we are still there.

So far the dealer and sales person have been above board and maybe that is why they are the #1 Jayco dealer in the country.

We are salivating!!!

Thanks Steve and all.

March 15 gives them plenty of time to detail it out and find any problems, if there are any. No big hurry.
