I have the 32 bhds with both the elite package and thermal package. I would opt for both, the elite package giving you the bigger water tanks and other luxuries is nice. The thermal package insulation is much better than my previous trailer with only the normal insulation package...

Well...here's what ending up happening....
We wanted a Jay Flight 24 FBS. Found out they have discontinued this model. It is being changed and renamed. We wanted this floorplan so we had to make some choices. Really wanted the Elite package but could only find trailer with elite package that had fiberglass siding. We wanted the aluminum siding so could only find one with the regular package (not elite) but it included thermal package, aluminum rims, ladder and larger air conditioner. Decided to go with that and we are having the CR3000 suspension added to it (thought that was a good feature of the elite package). It is not too expensive to do that. We will miss the nicer cabinets and the black water flush... I wish I could have just ordered one...but it wasn't in the cards.
Thanks for all your input...you were all very helpful!!!!

Black Tank flush is $25 very easy DIY project or ~$100 dealer installed project. Absolutely worth it.

From what you shared I think you made a good decision. Floor plan is the most important element, and you got the one you wanted. I too much prefer Alum sides to fiberglass so I would have made the exact same choice you did.

In addition to adding a Quickie-Flush or Tornado to you black tank, make sure to pick up a couple MaxxAir vent covers.

We have the the 2016 26bhs and thermal package. the small AC got too cold fast so the extra btus are a waste imo. however the door grab is really the biggest reason I have seen since they stopped the sink covers from what our dealer said.

We have the 27' RLS with the elite package and would not have been satisfied without it. Love the extra water, black tank flush and all the little extra's.

Jayco seems to mix and match the options in some of their packages from year-to-year. My 2013 base model Flight came with the black tank flusher, sink covers, 90 gal FW tank, hardwood drawer faces and a porcelain throne. If I were looking a new TT, I'd look at the build sheet at the dealership to make sure you know what you are getting, especially when comparing between two model year TTs (ie 2015 and 2016).

A few years ago, I believe the elites had a larger fridge and aluminum wheels and some other minor upgrades.

Congratulations to the OP on the purchase and happy camping!
