From what I understand and from what I saw on the lot and all the photos I have ever seen for 2016 JayFlights the standard for the covers is White. I worked it through my dealer, I asked if it could be done and they asked Jayco and they said no problem, they have them in stock. If they would not have done it the dealer was going to change them out themselves. On the MSRP Invoice from Jayco there is a line item to use Black Covers with an extra charge to do it, same with deleting the Graphics, Skylight and shipping some items loose so I could install. I worked the deal with these requests prior to these additional charges and they honored the agreed upon deal.

I did contact Jayco directly through their contact form about deleting the Skylight and they confirmed it could be done and for the dealer to ask for it through they're ordering contact at Jayco. I then requested this through the dealer, who had never done this before, and let them know Jayco confirmed it could be done. I had also asked Jayco direct if they could install an amber porch light, and the politely said they could not do that although I was hopeful they would.

As for Aluminum wheels I feel (not scientifically proven by me ) they are stronger and over time less prone to have issues from deterioration or rust plus complete the look of the trailer with the Black. It would be nice if they had made the standard steel wheel black like the JayFeathers, personally I think that would go better with the all Black trim over the White wheels.

Personally I wanted the All Aluminum (No Black) Sendel T03 wheel they have used in the past and was hoping to have a choice as I had seen the BHBE's with both style wheels but had to go with the Black that I got which was OK.

Our Sales guy said that was the most modified custom ordered Jayco he had ever done and they sell A LOT of them. I always like to know (and always do) more than the salesman for anything we purchase and this was one of those times, that being said he was super helpful and not afraid to ask about any of the requests. I should have pushed harder for the all Gray siding cause when I met with him to look at the camper it seemed like they did not really flow that request to Jayco very well and he thought they probably would have done it if that would of happened.

I had already requested so many little mods I did not want to push my luck so did not push to hard about that one.

Talk to your dealer about the Black Covers… my mantra was it does not hurt to ask, all they can say is No and Jayco said Yes on the covers.

Thank you for all the information! I will be asking my dealer about the covers. Really nice trailer you have there. What is a fair upgrade price for the rims?

The Deletes and Black Covers were part of the Deal prior to knowing if/what the extra charges would be. I worked with a number that did not include any extra charges i.e. if you specced a trailer on Jayco's website, which did not have any option to do any of the "Special Requests" I did, that was the number I used, plus freight and worked to right at 30% off. To finalize the deal I requested the Black Covers and Deletes be done. I would think, if the charges were known up front, if someone was ordering one then you would get whatever discount you negotiated off the total deal.

After getting a copy of the delivered invoice there were additional charges but my dealer honored the deal so in essence I did not pay extra and got them as part of the deal. The extra's total an additional $600 retail per the Invoice.

Delete Skylight $150, Delete Graphics $127, Install Black Shrouds / AC Cover $293 and Ship Loose Items $30.

The Black Cover for the LP Bottles is inside the Camper, when they deliver the trailers they don't have them on their until the dealer puts them on. I literally looked at it the day it was delivered to them, it was still covered in Snow dirt.

I want to install a Slide Cover… in hindsight I wish I would have worked than in to the deal as well, though I want to install it myself. Will try to purchase from them at a discount.

Jayco MSRP Invoice price is $442, after negotiated discount roughly $300. Your cost would depend on what negotiated discount you received off of MSRP.

Did you spec a trailer on Jayco's website with all the options?

Rats... I asked if they would do special requests and my salesman said no.
I didn't want the radio antenna since I don't care about listening to the radio and they mount it on the side of the rig where the plastic standoff will get taken off with my wash brush or a tree branch.
And I wanted a Fantasic fan in the bedroom instead of a regular vent.

My order has already been placed, but will not hit the production line for a couple weeks. I am hoping I can get the rims still added and the black colored vents. Just emailed my dealer.

So they charge extra for the deletes?
I like the black AC shroud but do you think it will cause extra heat to build up within the AC unit itself during the hot summer days? I know in the dead of summer with my trailer is parked anything black I can actually burn my hand on from the heat of the sun.

Apparently they do... Jayco told me that there would be a charge to delete the Skylight.

There is a member here on JOF who deleted the Barhroom door and I believe they said there was a $75 charge to do so.

Probably because they have to change their standard flow of production even though it saves them parts and labor in the long run.

Black will be hotter but would not think enough to damage anything, many rigs use Black covers and if I had my choice I preferred Black esthetically. All the trim and covers around the body of the camper are Black and it came standard with Black LP covers so it tops it off nice to have the same scheme on the top.

My dealer says not possible that they are all white due to the production line. I know not true but I feel him getting agitated.
