We're moving up from a 16ft. TT from another manufacturer, and are amazed at how much more storage there is.
Our TV is a 2002 Yukon with a 5.3L engine and the factory towing package. We're also having a weight distribution hitch installed.
Please let us know of any "gotta see" areas that we won't want to miss, and any tips for the trip would be appreciated.
Thanks

Pawpaw,

My wife and I are in Austin, TX and looking at Jayco trailers. The two we are looking at are the 264BH and 281BHS. Can you give me an idea of what you paid for yours in Houston? I found a quote from RvExpress that was way below what we were originally quoted at the dealership in Austin.

Thanks,
greydawg

Greydawg,

Here is a link to the ad my local dealer posted for the trailer we purchased.

http://www.lonestarrv.com/inventory/...ift-264BH.aspx

We negotiated with them and after adding an upgrade to the 15K A/C unit, a weight distribution hitch for our vehicle, a flush system for the black tank and TV mounts on the walls, our final price before TT&L was $15,600. I think it has everything else that Jayco offers except the little refrigerator in the rear storage area. We couldn't be more pleased with our dealer, Lone Star RV on I-45 on the north side of Houston. We dealt with Gordon Byrne who is one of the owner's sons. This is a family owned and run business.

I'm curious about how this price stacks up to what you were quoted.

Best of luck!

Pawpaw

We found the queen mattress in 264BH to be just too uncomfortable to consider leaving it the way it was...so we purchased a gel foam mattress topper from Costco when they went on sale...makes all the difference in the world.

Love my 26BH..which is close..great value for the money. Would love something larger with a slide, but the cost and weight are just more than I wanted to deal with.

We put a 2" memory foam on the bed and it really helped. No longer bothers me at all.

Thanks for the quick response. We haven't started negotiating yet so just trying to get an idea of real cost. Sounds like in the same ballpark though. The other trailer we are looking at is the 281BHS because of the slide and bigger kitchen. Though it would end up being about 4-5k more. Also it is only a short slide out less than 2 feet I think.

We are looking at crestview RV in buda. Anybody have any experience?

We're also making a few more small mods: 12 volt lights in both the front and rear storage areas, screes on all the exterior vents, a vent cover over the bathroom vent, and a flush system on the black water tank. Now we're about two weeks away from our first trip in it.
I know I late to this party, but we recently bought one of these as well. Eagerly waiting for the snow to melt so we can take it out!

I've thought about adding lights in the cargo areas as well; where did you get power? Is there an easy place to pull from, or did you have to run new wiring?

I just got some battery powered stick on lights. That was a lot easier than running new wiring.

Took my White Hawk 26srk to Lake Somerville for its shakedown cruise. It's just a hop,skip and a jump from you in Cypress. Nice place to check everything out. Lone Star is a good place to do business. Congrats on the new TT.

We just bought a brand new 264BH as well. Excited to use it. We have been to the Mount Rushmore area twice once staying in motels the second time we stayed at Rafter J Bar campground in Hill City. That was 12 years ago but I remember it being a beautiful campground. I would suggest sending off for a travel guide for the black hills area, there is a lot to see which can be overwhelming.
