jasoncw… Would you happen to have some inside photos of the A/C in the bedroom?

Thanks to all for the information on the ducting. While I know it may not be needed we like to sleep cold so for the long term having it as an option if needed would pay off to have it, especially if the main one went out. We will be camping in some Hot climates so it makes sense and I figure since I am going to order one I might as well add it in and get it at a reduced cost as part of the negotiated overall price.

Same with the TV, we don't use it much either but it is one of those "nice to haves" and having it already installed and wired up is worth it.

For those that have the 50 Amp service, have you used the dogbone to convert to a 30 Amp plug when needed? I know I can't run both A/C's that way but I think many of the Florida State Parks we have camped at only have 30 Amp, I really never paid much attention to how many had 50 Amp as we only had 30 Amp before.

Thanks...

Like I said before, I have the "prep" package, without the 2nd AC installed. So my rig is wired with 50A service. I have used the 30A dogbone a couple times and not had a problem. From what I understand, if you have the 2nd unit installed and use the dogbone on a 30A pedestal, you can only run one A/C at a time, not both at the same time. And you might have trouble with the microwave if it's running while the AC is running as well, but I can't speak to that as I didn't have a problem.

Thanks to everyone for your input and advice on the 28BHBE.

Placed our order yesterday for our new Camper with the following options...

To start I decided to go "Vintage" and go with the Aluminum Siding and the Sliding Windows. After receiving info from multiple sources including Jayco themselves I felt for the length of time we plan to keep the camper and the option to repair myself in the event of any issues I would take a shot with Aluminum, as for the windows we really like the ability to open the camper up to the outside with the sliders, something that the frameless windows would not offer. The ability to "open up" the camper was one thing from our Hybrid we were going to miss most.

15K A/C Upgrade to CVP
2nd A/C in Bedroom
50 Amp Service Upgrade
Elite Package - Deleted Kitchen Skylight
Thermal Package
Cargo Receiver Hitch
Hide-A-Bed
39" TV
Aluminum Rims - Have to decide which style to go with
Cashew Interior

Black Covers on the 2 A/C Units, Roof Fridge Vent and LP Bottles

Requested to Delete the "Swoosh" Graphics on the sides, front and rear, leaving the Jayco decals.

I also asked that the Bunk Storage Nets and the 2 Towel and TP hanger for the bathroom be shipped loose so I can install, in looking at many BHBE's online it seemed like depending on what day of the week it might have been depended on where these items were mounted and some of those areas were not where we would have wanted them. Hopefully this works out and they don't get in such a rush when building it they install them anyways.

We have an annual Camping trip the 2nd week of February so hoping to have it by then but with the Thanksgiving and Christmas shutdowns they have plus since apparently there is season called "Winter" in Indiana I am not certain if it will make it... but we are hoping so.

I wanted to add I was in communication with both the Jayco Southeast Regional Sales Mgr and the Jayco Product Mgr this past week about multiple questions I had about the Camper and they were both professional and helpful. It was nice that you can work directly with the Jayco factory in getting the info you need to make the decision that works for you. Does not mean the Camper will not have issues but at least I get to communicate with real people before and after my order.

Good deal, hope you like it! I didn't even know you could be that specific about things to delete and what not. You chose options VERY similar to what I chose. I didn't get the 50 amp or 2nd AC option though. So far we haven't needed it as far north as we are. The upgraded 15K AC has been enough for us.

We also didn't realize you can request so many customary changes. Did you confirm whether or not Jayco can do these, or are you in a hopeful stage? We also placed an order for a 28BHBE 2nd week of Oct but didn't realize all the options to choose from. We got the 15K AC unit, 30 amp, Elite, Thermal, Hide-a-bed, and 32" TV. If we knew the Cargo Hitch was an upon, we may have added that. We didn't add the 2nd AC unit or Fiberglass siding, due to the fact that we wanted to keep our weight down as we will be towing with a 1/2 ton. We are expecting delivery by 3rd week of Dec.

We have the 2015 32BHDS with all the options you ordered. Love the 2nd AC and 50-amp! Pick you up some small tabletop fans, an oscillating upright ceramic electric heater and a dehumidifier.

NOTE: We considered the 28BHBE but with three kids (including two teenaged girls) decided that having a separate bunkroom would facilitate more peaceful camping.

Best wishes!

-Dave

Elite Package - Deleted Kitchen Skylight

Any particular reason for the shaded Skylight delete? That was one of the key highlights of the elite package IMO.

Regardless, they let in heat, heat, and more heat in the summer, even with a shade. Plus just another hole in the roof to have to babysit.

IceOnFire...

I got confirmation direct from Jayco I could delete the Skylight (Big Thanks to a tip from BigJohnD). I know others on the JOF have ordered with Graphics Delete which is basically what I am doing but keeping the Jayco emblems. Would save them time and money to not put the Graphics on it.

The Black Covers... Dealer said they should be factory installed, if not they will install them.

As for the shipping the other items loose the dealer (Orlando RV) did not think it was an issue, I guess I could ask the Jayco guys myself but the dealer is going to copy me on all correspondence with those guys so I can explain why if need be, once again saves them time ($).

Aluminum Rims... I have seen the Aluminum campers with both styles of the Rims, I don't want to assume I am getting one or the other so we are checking our options.

Jayco website has all the options available for the BHBE listed, for the TV the listed option was the 39" and the Cargo Hitch was listed.

Only options we did not get was the FG Sides, Power Stabilizers and the Bumper Grill.

dsmith3...

My son loved the bunk room in the BHDS but since he is the only one and I was already going longer than I ever wanted with the BHBE I could not justify it, plus the point of camping is to be outside , for multiple kids it's perfect. You also give up the large shower which was an option we wanted.

jloco...

Neither the DW or myself are fans of the skylights but the biggest factors are the heat it lets in, even with the shade and the damage the Florida Sun does to the cheap plastic they use as well as one less giant hole in the roof for future leaks.

I left the Shower one mainly for the headroom but will probably coat it with something to help protect it from the Sun damage. They yellow up and get brittle quickly down here.

Ah, I see. Valid points on the skylight that I didn't even think of. Makes perfect sense, especially in the Florida sun.
