I ordered my 2010 32BHDS in December 2009 from RVDirect. I choose every option except for the BBQ. I paid $21,350.00 out the door. That year the outdoor kitchen was not available, and if it was I probably would not of bought it, you do loose quite a bit of storage. My unit was delivered to the dealer in Feb 2010 and I have not had to bring it back for any reason. On a TT that size I say the 15,000 BTU a/c is needed, we took a trip to Florida in July and we definitely were glad to have the larger a/c unit.

As far as a trade in is concerned I tried to sell my old TT before purchasing my new one and was not able to get my asking price. RVDirect gave me a price on the new TT and then asked about a trade in, they gave me a great price on my trade in, it was only $200.00 less than what I wanted. I also financed with them and saved an extra $500.00 off my final price.

I have no regrets on buying the 32BHDS and no regrets buying it through RVDirect. It is a heavy TT and just make sure your TV is large enough.

Updated from yesterday with new questions

So we went back to the original dealer yesterday to look at the Jayco once again before we went and looked at other lines. So while we are there the dealer decided to show us an Eagle 314BDS which has the same exact floor plan the big difference is we can get aluminum studs along with fiberglass smooth siding.

So here is the question:

Is anyone familiar with this trailer and how does the Eagle Super Lite 314BDS compare to the Jayflight G2 32BHDS?

Then would any be concerned about the following:

The dealer completely bashed RV Direct and said "their prices are fake and when you get there they will increase it". He also said "good luck getting service" but then I asked don't all Jayco dealers service trailers? "He said yes but it's more complicated then that"

Then this is the interesting one and I am trying to validate this. We are seasonal campers so we have no tow vehicle. The dealer stated if there is warranty work our campground can do the work, the dealer would act as the "agent" and the camper does not need to be moved.

Has anyone heard of this or am I just dealing with a dealer that will say anything to get a deal done?

Let the campground do the warranty work? That`s a new one on me! Now there are independent RV repair shops that will do warranty work. RV direct raises their price after you get there? Didn`t happen to me, and I`ve never heard of it happening to anyone else. If you order from them the transaction is a done deal well before you "get there" and all you have do do is the PDI and then take it home. IMO this dealer is full of it, for lack of a better word.

We just purchased the 314BDS Eagle Superlite. We wanted the smooth sides and metal framing. As far as that I think the interior fabrics may be a litte better etc. Both great trailers. I heard that if a person that is seasonal can have work done on site(warranty work),,,, but a travel charge etc will happen. Also depends on dealer location and manpower etc.

Get the smooth sides... dont dent in the hail, dont get rock chips. Stays looking better much longer.. IF a dealer wont service your RV call Jayco... they will send you to one that will.... JUST REMEMBER to tell any dealer that wont service your rig that you wont buy any parts or accessories from him either...

Thanks everyone for all the input and the deal is now done!

We decided to go with the G2 32BHDS and the best part is we found a new dealer to buy from which was very informative. Letting us know there was a mid year upgrade from 22" TV's to 26" upgraded cabinetry and a larger refrigerator from 6 cubic to 8 cubic. The other dealer mentioned none of this.

This new dealer also did a better job on pricing and encouraged the slide toppers.

The only concern I have is they are 3 hours away so not sure how that plays out. As far as our trade in they want us to snal and send pictures of our current trailer and they will take our word on it. Hopefully they do, we have nothing to worry about as it's in near perfect condition.

I've had smooth sides and the aluminum and they both had their pro's and cons - go with the one you like the most.

I've got a 32BHDS and love it, but the Eagle is a very nice TT as well.

As for the water heater, my wife and I have 6 kids (yup, we sleep 8 in the 32BHDS w/o an issue) and don't really have any hot water issues. if we're all taking showers at about the same time, we'll turn on both the gas and electric water heaters and it keeps up well.

I kind of wish we would have gotten the 15k AC, but the standard one keeps up pretty well here in TN.

They didn't offer the rear kitchen in 2009 when I bought mine. If they had, I probably would have bought it - but I also think I would have made a mistake. That huge storage area in the back is awesome and makes everything so easy to get to and keep organized.

I keep a Coleman roardtrip grill in the front storage area, and have a table and a Colman campstove for outdoor cooking. I prefer to cook a little ways from the traffic near the camper anyway (small kids) and it still has the camping feel. The outdoor sink would probably be a nice touch, but not worth loosing storage over.

Looks like we were typing at about the same time :hihi: Congrats on the purchase - I don't think you'll regret it!

We put the slide topper on our trailer, we thought it was a good idea. If there is a little branch or pine cone falls on top of the slide and you don't see it and get the slide gasket cut then you can justify the extra cost. When we bought our trailer we asked for the price to include the hitch, topper, and 2, 6volt batteries in place of the 12. We only have one trip in our trailer but love it and have lots planned for this season.
