Ended up pulling the trigger on the 32BHDS this weekend. Should be at the dealer in the next two weeks (just rolled off the line at the Jayco factory). Got pretty much all of the available options. Just need to find a storage place and a WD hitch now...

Congrats! Does your weather allow for you to camp through Fall/Winter? Will you get some camping in before the end of the 'season' where you live?

[QUOTE=TexasA&M;6631]Dodge and Ford are always heavier duty than GM...

Thanks for the info. My salesman actually talked to Jayco this morning about the rear refrigerator and he said the same thing; there should be no issue with running it with the rear door closed.

Definately report back on the refrigerator. Our dealer advised against it because they had seen quite a few back for the heat issue.
Congrats on the purchase, I think you'll love it. We just got our 314 which is similar in floorplan and love it.

I'll let you know if I have any problems with the fridge. It would be basically worthless if you can't run it with the door closed, so I'm hoping that it's not an issue.

The weather should be nice enough for us to at least get a couple of 'dry runs' in with the camper before next spring. We do most of our camping at lakeside campgrounds, so summer is optimal. Nothing wrong with going out in the winter and drinking a few beers by the fire though. Hopefully we'll have everything figured out and organized by the time boating season rolls around.... now I just gotta figure out how to get the camper AND the boat to the lake!

I think you will be quite happy with your new trailer! I know I'm a little late, but I would recommend the 15K a/c unit option. I have the smaller one, and it's okay, but if I had to do it over, bigger may be better! I've yet to have a problem with the rear fridge and I used it one weekend when it was steadily over 100*F outside. Congrats and if you have any questions, feel free to ask!

The local dealer here orders all Jaycos with the thermal package and 15k btu A/C units... I would have checked those option boxes anyway, but it's nice to know that they are in tune with what is needed here in Texas with the heat that we can have. I basically got every option that I could, except for the water purifier, and grill. I didn't like where the grill attached to the trailer, so I figured I could just get my own gas grill if I wanted one.

Glad to know that you haven't had any problems with the fridge. It can be over 100*F out here anytime between early June and late September, so I hope it's up to the task.

I don't yet have a date on when the trailer is supposed to arrive, but I should know something tomorrow. Hoping that I can pick it up by the end of this month. Been reading everything I can about the walk through/inspection, and am hoping that I don't find anything wrong with the camper that would keep me from taking it home that day. It will definitely be worth having all issues taken care of by the dealer before I sign any papers though.....

Good choice, your truck will tow it fine.

Picked her up this weekend.... No major issues to speak of. Just need to start using it now! So far, very pleased with the setup. Haven't used it for much other than sleeping in, but all has gone well. Already picked up a memory foam mattress topper to make the bed more comfy. I am also very pleased with how well she traveled. We drove ~100 miles on Friday with a fairly strong north wind at our backs for the first half of the drive. We had a cross wind for the second half, and both the truck and trailer handled very well. Need to do some fine tuning on the WD setup, but will wait until we have the trailer all packed up to do that.
