New Camper Wondering if I got a good deal 32BHDS

Hi guys, I am new to the forums so please be nice. I just bought a 2016 Jayco 32BHDS and I was wondering if I got a good deal it appears that they mark up all the prices just to play the cat and mouse game. Here is what I got

Trailer $21,000.00
+Tax/tag/prep fee was about $3000
+$1000 for the WDH (equalizerhitch)
And I know but I bit on the extra 7 year warranty(9 years total with Jayco warranty) with a $100 deductible with lodging insurance for $1,500. I think they suckered me out $1500

My out the door price was about $26,495 with everything above. How do you think I did?

Does it matter at this point? You already bought so YOU were obviously happy with the deal. That's all that matters. Now that that's done, just enjoy your new toy.

I agree with Oz. If you are happy when you make the deal, then you got a good deal. Don't go second guessing yourself down the road. No one would be happy then. Go out and make some beautiful memories with your new rig. Next time when you get ready to deal, do all the looking and figuring, before you buy.

This is a good point. The camper was a impulse buy from a show and I was just hoping I did good. Not sure what campers like this one goes for.

I agree with "The Meeker". A quick Google shows $21000 to be a decent base point. And if the extended warranty gives you "peace of mind", then it was well worth the cost. Now, go get your money's worth out of it!

What are you pulling it with?

Welcome and congrats on the new 32!!!!

Concerning the price, while its to late to say no at this point, it is hard to say without knowing what the msrp of YOUR 32 is with what options you have. Go to Jayco's website and choose all the options your 32 has, and see if you got at least 30% off the msrp for the trailer price only (no extras). If so, you did good.

What size wd bars did you get? If you did not get the 1400lbs bars, go back and exchange them/ or exchange them before picking up the trailer. The "brochure" dry tw of 910lbs (think that's what it is, or 920lbs?) does not include the weight of the propane tanks or a battery. That alone adds about 160lbs before you load the trailer up for a trip. Our 32 has ~1400lbs tw (need to reweigh after a few more/changes. Was 1400lbs tw on the nose when I did weigh it) with all the water tanks (fresh and waste) empty.

What tv do you have to pull that beast with? If it's not at least 2500/250 you should start planning on a new tv as well.

Enjoy the new 32!!! We love ours. Can't wait to parole it out of winter storage, do a couple more mods, and go camping.

The last thing you want now is to feel cheated that you didn't get a good deal. In the end, any camper is a bad investment as far as money is concerned. It's time to enjoy it now that you have it. Besides, it sounds like you did fine so don't worry.

The TT and wdh price sounds good. Insurance, the price is ok, but that is a personal thing, some people insist on the additional insurance, others like me don’t care for it, and feel taking the risk is acceptable.

Hey bud thanks for the information. I'm pulling mine with a 2015 F150 supercrew with the 3.5 ecoboost and Air Lift 5000 air bags. It pulls quite nice.

The 30% off MSRP is a good target but I think a realistic target is 20-25% which is what to expect as RV show prices. I got 31% off on mine but it is through a well known low price online retailer, which I'm lucky enough they have a brick and mortar 2 hours away. But my true local dealers were at 20-23% with negotiation.

Have you taken delivery yet?
Another factor in if you got your money's worth is the treatment you get by your dealer. Did he give you a thorough walk through and explanation of how everything works and how to maintain it? Was he pleasant? Will he be reliable in dealing with any issues?

If yes, and if you are happy with your trailer, then you truly got a good deal.

Are you Ok on your payload? A 32 is a lot of camper for a half ton truck. Take a look at the sticker on your driver door frame of your F150, it should have a weight highlighted in yellow. This is the total amount of people, stuff, hitch and tongue weight your truck can carry.

With my F150 and 26' camper I am right on the edge with payload, so I can't put much in the bed of the truck.

I just load the rear of the camper instead of the bed. It pulls really well

That doesn't mean you aren't over the gvwr of the truck, and possibly the rear axle rating. How much does the family alone weigh? As mentioned, what is the yellow sticker payload amount?

It wouldn't hurt to take a trip to a CAT Scale to see just where you are weight wise. If you do decide to stop at the CAT Scale, follow my signature link for the how to to get all the weights. Will want to weigh 3 times.

And be very careful not to load to much in the rear of the camper. It is possible to lighten the tw to the point which will cause sway from having to light of a tw. Regardless of what wdh w/ sway control you have.

What are your wd bars rated for?

If you do upgrade your wdh with the dealer I wouldn't pay anymore. You can buy them online for 50% less than what they charged you.

Hey I just put a down payment on one, about 15mins ago. You definately did not get ripped off... We will pick it up Friday. Lets talk numbers and options, I'll PM you. I did end up getting the "Elite" Package" and also the "Thermal" package, but only after also putting a deposit on the same unit without those two options at a dealer 20mins away so they battled it out... in the end we used the "oh, we didnt realize it didnt have the Thermal Package" to get our deposit back... not really sure that is really needed though... doesn't add much that you couldnt do yourself using rigid foam and some Great Stuff Foam to enclose the under carriage, and would probably be way better...
