I really like the way it looks without the swoosh graphics!

We got the 2016 28 BHBE and the single AC keeps it cool. No issues, in fact we got cold.

We are preparing for the Florida summers and heading out West with it (Texas, New Mexico, Arizona). May not always need it but would rather have it and not need it then need it and not have it.

I noticed you are towing your 28BHBE with a 2012 Expedition EL...

How does it do towing the BHBE?

I had the same Expedition prior to upgrading to my F250 (Expedition got totaled from behind, bent the frame etc).

We were towing a 2012 26BH before this one. It seems to tow fine. Don't get sway. I do feel the Tractor Trailers suck the trailer over a little when they pass, and I account for that. We don't travel with a heavy load in the trailer and when traveling long distances put just enough water in the tanks (we have the elite package) to flush the toilet and wash hands and do dishes. (about 15 gallons.).
There are 5 in our family and sometimes Grandma goes along so that is why we have the Expedition instead of a Truck. Too bad Ford didn't keep the Excursion around.

'16 28BHBE - Custom Order - 2nd AC

I recently requested a quote on this trailer and asked to have the skylights and rear door deleted as I see you deleted the skylights and another member deleted his rear door. After a few days the dealer said they checked and jayco said no. Did you have to contact jayco yourself? I did not get this response from RV direct (it was another dealer mentioned on here) but may check with them now... Hoping this isn't a new policy to deny some custom changes. Thanks.

I would contact Jayco. My dealer said no, but I think he just didn't want the hassle. I ended up just leaving the skylight after walking through both I really like the extra natural light. I will take the risk of leaks down the road. Hopefully checking seals down the road will prevent it.

Took almost 4 hrs for our PDI/Demo, all went well and I found no damage and everything seemed to work as it should and all our special requests / deletes were correct. It was raining the whole time so did not spend much time on the ground but being an enclosed underbelly I could not see much anyways. I will crawl under it when I take it to the lot I use to adjust the hitch.

Positive with the rain is I searched for leaks and all was well and the awning dropped the water as it should. Was able to run all systems including city water and running on 50 Amp power and running both AC's simultaneously. We checked everything per the PDI list, had the DW go through the inside as a double check for my sweep. I could tell from the demo guy that people looking over the campers in detail are few and far between.

The dealer wanted to (and did) mail me the paperwork to sign ahead of time, in the end I politely requested to do my full PDI prior to signing anything or providing payment, I was told this is not their normal process but would "allow" me to do this. I find this scary for the uninformed RV purchaser, and there were people there picking up campers that had done it the dealers way.

Couple items missing were the Sink Covers from the Elite Pkg and the Bathroom Drain Plug but all in all we were pleased, I used the PDI checklist from the forum.

As for towing it... That is something I have to get used to, I had not towed in a year but this is a lot more rig than our X19H we had before. I never wanted to go this big but as fate would have it the opportunity presented itself that I needed to get a new TV and chose our F250 which allowed us the opportunity to get this floor plan which was our favorite "best of everything" floor plan but our TV in the past limited us. Smaller "lightweight" rigs that forced us to compromise on features we wanted where more $ or basically the same $ so it was a no brainier in the cost category as far as we got for the $, but size wise it was a big pill to swallow literally, but we went for it.

I was unable to setup the WDH correctly at the dealer lot but had guessed on a setting and it was not quite enough, luckily I had my Air Bags to bring the setup almost level but there was not enough pressure on the bars and distributing weight to the front of the truck. We are going to load all our stuff back into the camper this week then I will properly setup the WDH. This camper pushes a lot of air with it's increased height and sometimes moved my truck around pretty good, I believe (hope) this will correct itself once I get the WDH setup better. I have a cap on my truck so the air flow is smooth all the way back, once you get this camper out in the open and hooked up it makes my truck look small.

Pics to follow soon... been a long day and I'm .
Hi,
Could you attach a link for the PDI check list?
Thank you.

Thanks for the info...

I towed ours last weekend for around 100 miles, had a lot of wind on the road, so it moved around a lot, not sway, more the truck then the trailer but I believe because it is so high and long along with my F250 being so high (4WD) that it would "move", maybe wander is a better term. The Ford steering is not the tightest on the 3/4 ton trucks, the front was planted with the WDH, I tried around 6 different setups to get to where I am at now.

After driving my truck this week without the camper on the the same stretch of highway the truck "moved" around on its own, guess I really never noticed it until I had 8,000 lbs hooked on to it.

I miss our Expedition EL, luckily we don't NEED the 3rd row so I kept it down all the time but used the cargo space all the time. I built by own Excursion, sans the 3rd Row, by getting the F250 and adding a Bed Rug and ARE Z Cap to it. An open truck bed does me no good, it had to be enclosed.

We have another trip this coming weekend so will do another 150 miles or so with it.
