Update...

Dealer let me know last week we are on schedule for a Feb delivery but do not have a specific date yet, though to be honest I have not asked. I know some have gotten a VIN and "off the line date" so I will ask shortly. I don't think it will make it by when we were hoping but that's my fault for dragging my feet on ordering, I wanted to make the best educated decision I could before ordering so that is what was most important.

So far all the little requests I had like Black Covers on the AC's, Skylight and Graphics delete and shipping the Bath and Bunk hardware separate have been confirmed as a GO from Jayco, at least per the dealer so here's to hoping it happens.

Still waiting to see what options, if any, I have on the Aluminum Wheels. I have seen the BHBE with both the Black (as shown on their website) and all Aluminum wheels, if I have a choice I think I am going to go all Aluminum.

I kicked around not getting Aluminum from Jayco and buying my own with Maxxis tires from the start but I would get the same rims anyways so might as wheel get a few trips out of the tires, trailer should have the Rainier tires.

We are patiently waiting and hoping all turns out as planned and the rig has no or minimal issues.

Congrats on the new trailer. We are pricing the same trailer and another jayco as well. If you don't mind me asking, how much off msrp did they quote you? If you'd rather not say no biggie.

We were quoted 35% (RV show price) for the same trailer before adding a bunch of upgrades. It's probably close 30% now, but I will post the numbers after we sign the papers next week.

Ours had an msrp of $31,678, and we paid $24,486. So not much over 20% off by my shoddy calculations.

Maybe not the best deal, but we didnt care we just wanted it!

Ended up at 28% with Freight, not including Taxes, $600 short of 30%. If you take Freight out then 29%. I knew the 30% rule going in and started with that and over time we came to an agreement, I guess I could have waited them out but we wanted the Camper by March of this year so could not wait any longer to order. If you read my posts in this thread you can see I did some extra changes like Skylight Delete and Graphics Delete. Jayco told me directly these changes would be additional charges but my dealer did not charge me extra, at this point. I worked the deal first then requested those changes along with some other requests. I have a signed buyers custom order form with all the modifications listed so should be good... we will see.

So far I have been happy and although I wish the campers were not so expensive in the first place I feel I got a fair price and the salesman and Jayco were very helpful providing me info to help me decide what to order.

I purchased our last camper (our 1st one) from the same dealer and salesman 3 1/2 yrs ago and got 30% off on that one... In large part because I had found this forum in doing pre purchase research. If I can help someone else in their research pre purchase I am happy to do so.

If that is the same as Destination Charge, then yes.

Unit total showed $30,915. That is with the added options - Customer Value Package, Elite Package, Thermal Package, Hide-A-Bed, 32" TV, Rear Receiver/Cargo Accessory, and the Grill.

Then a Destination Charge of $763.00 for a grand total MSRP of $31,678

I think you will be very happy with your choice we love ours!
So this is was our pick,the 28 BHBE. We liked the color scheme inside and out VS the black trim or the fiberglass smooth wall models. I haven't seen a model yet that hasn't had an issue with the gel coat fading or separating and I feel that there is more strength in the "corrugated" style walls over a continous flat wall ( ex. chinese fan vs a flat piece of paper..... the folded sections of the chinese fan offers more strength over a straight bendable piece of material). As for the Elite package I felt that once that insulation get wet under there it will take forever until its dry thus possibly promoting mold. Since we mostly camp in the northeast I never thought about a second a/c unit but the skylight would have been a nice "option". A ladder on the back would be ideal but I have a 10' step ladder to help clean the roof area.

Nice TT!

Ours has the factory installed ladder on the back to get to the roof. In all honesty, I am a little sketched out to even use it as it is flimsy as heck. I am 170 pounds and when I use it (very gingerly might I add) if flexes and feels like I am putting too much strain on it. Quite a let down. I think I will be adding some support legs from the bottom pipe onto the bumper.

We like the added light of the skylight. I just hope it doesn't give me fits with leaking anytime in the near future. After all, a skylight is a hole in a roof that WILL leak some day.

I wouldn't worry about it too much, I'm around 265, and I use mine. It wasn't very confidence-inspiring the first couple times, but it has earned my trust. Now granted, I'm not swinging around on it like a monkey; I get up (carefully), do my business and get down (even more carefully).
