When you step into the RIGHT trailer you will know it. That would be the one for you.

I am torn the 284BHBE Eagle, the 28BHBE Jayflight, and the Octane ZX T29A. Can see pros and cons of each. Still scratching the head. Went to open house at local dealer on Sunday - want all three. That is not going to work, and so will have to pick one.

Well, I think we have come to a decision, and will see if we can go with a 2014 Jayflight 28BHBE. When all was said and done, it was the winner of the cost/benefit analysis.

I spoke with a number of people about my local dealer and received favorable opinions. Web searches revealed favorable comments and the three complaints the BBB listed were favorably resolved. Walked in to their advertised open house last Sunday and looked around. Had to ask to speak with a salesman - certainly no high pressure! Our agreed-upon price is 73% of the MSRP that appeared from the Jayco website using the build and price function. My DW is supposed to stop in their shop tomorrow and leave a 10% deposit for the order, so we'll see whether that goes smoothly or the whole deal falls apart.


We are ordering the following:

Jayflight 28BHBE

• Hide-a-bed
• 2nd 13,500-BTU A/C in bedroom
• 50-amp service with 2nd A/C prep
• Bumper-mount outside grill
• Electric stabilizer jacks (4)
• Power Package
• Roof ladder
• Thermal Package

I don't feel in particular need of the power stuff, but my DW wanted and I figured it may make it easier to sell the trailer six or seven years from now (when the kids have left the nest).

So, we decided on a traditional "stick and tin" trailer.

I am looking to sell my 1995 Eagle 304BH now - I would like it to go to someone who will take care of it, as it really is a good trailer. It would be perfect for someone with small children at a very low cost.

Thanks to those who responded; not only this thread but my several other threads, as I tried to figure this out.

I'll let you know how the order and delivery process works out.

That's a great trailer! I'm only a little biased...

I didn't think much of the power stuff either, but now that I have them, I find I like them very much, especially the tongue jack.

The power stuff is like all our other stuff we really didn't need. Could never live without it again. Sounds like you did your homework and I hope it keeps you and your family happy for years to come.

I just noticed, you are getting a thermal package but don't show dual pane windows. Maybe they are part of the thermal package, but if not, single panes are energy leakers.

cekk: There is no window option on the Jayflight line on the Jayco website build and price function. The sales representative at the dealer did not identify it either.

Redhorse823: I am working with Boyer RV Sales in Erie, PA.

An update: the DW stopped in to the dealer today and completed the order (i.e., she selected the colors and all) and made the deposit for the order. Everything was as I had discussed online with the sales representative - there were no surprises or attempts to build in additional charges. There was a $100 "documentation fee" - I could do the registration a little cheaper at one of the vendors here in town but they kind of have you over the barrel on that one. Still, not unreasonable, and similar to what I have had to do when buying a new car. So, things are progressing well so far.

I'll post an update when we get a delivery date as well as how the process of actually receiving the trailer goes. I hope I never have to post an update on how the dealer handles warranty work - but if the situation arises.....

I'm sure I'll have questions as I go ........

Thanks.
