Hello new to Jayco Forum and have loads of questions..

Hello everyone!

We are not new to camping as we currently own a Cross Roads Sunset Trail 30BH which we absolutely love. The quality is amazing!

However we have outgrown the size and we were at the show this weekend and bought a new trailer! Well we left a deposit and now I am second guessing if I got a good deal.

We bought a Jayco Jayflight G2 32BHDS. How many on the forum own this trailer and cannot anyone shed some light? I am very concerned about going from a 10 gallon water heater to a 6 gallon and also having the rear sink go into the black water tank. Our current black tank is 40 gallons and this is 32 so really getting concerned.

On the other hand we really love the floor plan and that's why we bought it!

Last but not least we paid $24,995 and they accepted our trade right at the Nada trade in price.

Is this a fair deal? Rv.Net forum people are saying I got ripped off

If you are happy with the deal that`s all that really matters. There`s always gonna be somebody that got a better deal somewhere. And when a trade is thrown in the mix you have to consider that as well. Some dealers will give you a great price on the new one but a lousy allowance for your trade, and others may give you a big price for your trade but not come down much on the new one. In the end it could be about the same. Enjoy the new trailer.

I've got the same trailer and have really enjoyed it thus far. I haven't gotten to use it in the summer just yet, bot so far I haven't had any problem with the rear sink going to the black tank. Not sure how much that will change, but I've got a 45ga barker dump tank that will be going with us, so I'm not too concerned one way or the other. The floor plan was too good to pass up to worry about the one or two drawbacks.

Within my area, "brand new" TT's sell for $1,000 a foot. Used TT's go for less. If wondering, we paid $25,000 (for "out the door" price) for my pre-owned 1.0 year old 2006 Jayco 29FBS. We bought it back in 2007. I'm sure the selling price of "brand new" had increased since then. One thing I noticed.... No matter how good a deal you got, "someone" always gets a better deal. And, they love throwing salt in one's eyes - just out of spite. Long mumblings short.... If you feel you got a great deal, then you got a great deal. Simply enjoy and don't worry what others think.

Good luck with your new purchase....

I would not worry too much about a 6 gallon water tank. My last unit had a 6 gallon tank and we never had problems. We would turn the propane on before a shower and it kept up nice. My neighbor, and camping partner, has an outside kitchen with a sink that drains into the black tank. It was thought to be a problem the first trip out but turned out to not really matter. 2 adults and 3 sometimes 4 kids pretty much takes care of all tanks. (Empties water and fills black & gray) As far as the deal, I agree with everyone else on here. Someone, ALWAYS, wants to seem better than someone else when it comes to deals. In my opinion, deal tales are like fishing tales! I have had 2 campers, both Jayco! I have nothing else to compare to but I can say it would be hard for me to buy ANY other brand! Enjoy your Jayco!

Welcome to the Jayco Owners Forum Doug and Beth! RV shows are fun and it's so neat to see all the different model tt's out there! Typically, if you could purchase an rv at 30% off MSRP (before taxes and fee's) then you did *very* well. As for trade-n vs selling on your own... When dealers give you a quote for trading in a vehicle, they use the NADA (blue book for other vehicles) specific to dealers. So there is a dealers trade in value (much less than private party), a private party value high, and private party low. You typically get more for your trade by selling it yourself. I'm guessing based on the above maybe that's why your friends at rv.net think you were ripped off Anyhow, that is a nice tt. Folks here that have that model have expressed some disappointment with awning not covering back kitchen, and the drainage into the black tank, but never-the-less enjoy their tt

Hi everyone,

Just a quick update:

I am sure many folks won't be too happy since this is a Jayco forum but we sill have a deposit on the Jayco but will be looking at other lines this weekend. I assume we will end up with the jayco I just am not sure the dealer is doing the right thing but us. Discouraging a 15,000 BTU a/c and telling us slide toppers are "stupid and a waste of money". I am just getting a little concerned so I need to see what else is out there.

Are you dealing with a salesperson? If so, perhaps you could contact the manager or owner and ask the same questions that concern you with the answers you've received so far. Perhaps you could contact the next nearest Jayco dealer with the same questions? Also, Jayco has a two year warranty . When looking at other brand rv's though, check to see the reviews on the rv you find interests you. A crummy dealer may turn out to be better than a crummy rv Let us know what ya wind up doing.... good luck

Since the deal is not final, and you seem dissatisfied with the equipment on this unit, have you considered ordering one equipped exactly the way you want? Believe it or not in some cases ordering is actually cheaper then buying lot inventory. We got a quote from RV direct in minutes equipped the way we wanted and with our choice of interior colors, ordered it and got a factory fresh model about 6 weeks later. And it was way cheaper then dealer quotes I received on inventory units that were not equipped the same. The 15000 btu AC unit is only a $100.00 upgrade, so that was a no brainer for me. But many dealers do not order this for lot inventory.

As for a trade in, they do buy them but I sold my previous TT privately on Craigslist. It sold in one day, and I think I could have sold a couple more based on the interested parties. That took a trade out of the equation.

. As for our Jayco I can only say that after 15 months the only warranty issue was a leaking toilet water valve module, which I replaced myself after a call to Thetford, the makers of the toilet, they sent me a new one free. I read many posts on forums where owners of new trailers have a large punchlist of issues they have to return their rig to the dealer to have fixed. Fortunately I can say I have not experienced that and have had no issues worthy of a trip to a dealer. The fit and finish and overall quality has been good, especially for an "entry level" trailer. All things considered I would buy another Jayco if I ever upgraded. Good luck whatever you choose and have fun with it. In the end, the family memories and experiences we have camping are far more important then how fancy our equipment is. That`s what our kids will remember.
