I kind of thought that's how it would be with the floor plan layout. How are you liking the 29.5rks so far? We have never been in one yet.

The wife and i really like the layout, She wanted as much counterspace as possible and this has it. We really have not camped yet as it is aproaching winter time here in IA, Our dealer out did themselves on the predelivery and i went over the camper with a fine tooth comb and could not find anything wrong. It also pulls like a dream over our 27.5 TT we had before.We did get the deluxe package with corion counter tops and 8cf fridge and that is well worth the extra $.

Sounds like you got one just like we ordered. Glad to hear you like it!

Mid Year model change

Figured I'd follow up in case anyone else was wondering the same thing.

Jayco did in fact have a mid year model change on the 31.5RLTS. We just took delivery on an early 2012 out of necessity, First of all our early 2012 has the 60X80 bed. They also changed the bedroom cabinets in the front right corner, they took out the TV cabinet mount and the 3 drawers under that cabinet, this upset the wife so much that I had to search far and wide for an early built trailer. I don't know when they made the change but ours was built in August and we just purchased Dec 9th.

Our original plan was to order a new 2012 in early February and take delivery hopefully by mid April. We would have been VERY disappointed if we had waited and took delivery on something that had been changed but not reflected in any of their advertising or even on their Web site.

We ordered our 29.5 at the end of October and picked it up the first part of December and there were changes in the bedroom. Luckily for us they were what we would consider improvements, but I could see how that would be bad if you were expecting one thing and had something else delivered.

Hey guys, while we're talking queen beds, may I side track the conversation with a different query?

Have any of you fine folks upgraded your mattress or added a topper to it for greater comfort? The standard mattress that came with our 28BHS is fine for weekend outings but for the long stays we're planning on doing I'm considering adding some sort of pillow top so I dont feel the coils in my backside!

Being a "short" queen I will likely have to do some shopping around online to find something that will be suitable.

I'd like to hear experiences from the rest of you Jaycophiles.

Oh well. Thanks for the info. I did email Jayco directly today, but you all beat them to the punch.

Thanks,

Matt pull the matress a few inches from the headboard... with your head on a pillow you will not even notice it...

After re-reading the above posts I see that this thread is all with Fivers owners... Which all have better quality mattresses than Jayflight TTs. I will repost my question in the appropriate thread.
