Value of Upgrading from 2016 FLSA to 2019 FLSA?
Greetings Fellow Jayco Owners, I posted this in the FB forum, but also posting here. Strange question for you all. We purchased a used 2016 FLSA Pinnacle this year with a decent deal. We now have an opportunity to trade this in for a 'new' 2019 Pinnacle FLSA for a potentially good deal with the trade of the 2016. Here is the list of upgrades in the 2019 over our 2016 version.
1. New and upgraded tires
2. Slide toppers
3. 6 slides instead of 5 - additional room in the MBR
4. New RV warranty - 2 years
5. 3 total ACs instead of current 1 AC
6. Vinyl floors throughout instead of carpet in living area and MBR
7. New living room furniture (tan leather instead of brown microsuede)
8. Backup camera
9. MORryde stairs
10. Generator prep
11. LP/Electric Residential Fridge instead of Electric only
12. New mattress
13. Various other decorative changes and updates
Question - What would you potentially pay for all these upgrades? If we had to do them ourselves, ignoring the significant time factor, I estimated something like $15,000 without the 6th slide or the value of the warranty. I have also heard Jayco Pinnacle quality decreased after 2016 when it was purchased by Thor. Curious as to this community's comments??
Agree that some of these are upgrades we could never 'really' make like installation of a 6th slide to widen MBR or new warranty. We have a portable external generator (just broke it in A-iPower SUA3800iED Dual Fuel Enclosed Digital Inverter Generator from Sams Club) so Gen Prep not worth much to us now. All the other mods are things we've actually talked about doing so they would be of value. Question - given all I've heard about warranty nightmares and how long service takes, I would try to negotiate that the warranty period should be extended for as long as it takes to repair. I doubt this is doable, but doesn't hurt to try!! Still seems like a good deal of value in that stuff to me, especially if we were not doing some of the improvements ourselves. If you were paying to have items 1-2, 5-9 and 11-13 done, I do think it would be in excess of $10K? Thanks for your thoughts
