We camp over 100 days each year in 2-3 week stretches. Almost every where we go the cg owners have a list of dependable mobile rv techs. Some even were based in our cg last fall in N. Ga.

He was very knowledgeable.

coachcardoso, I'm in SoCal and I know the dealer your are referring to 7 hours away. I'm only 15 minutes from them.


You have to decide if the travel is worth the savings. I have a 23RLSW on order with them since I'm so close. They matchedthe internet price I was quoted.


As far as your local dealer(Jayco) I would have a talk with Jayco and a factory rep about the dealer saying he only works on the TT they sell. As stated, he probably will take his time working on your rig, but being a Jayco dealer I find it hard to believe he can refuse your business if bought from another dealer.


I don't think Jayco would be to happy to hear that statement. Keep hammering away with your local dealer, maybe they will budge on there price. Wireman

My experience is you're going to pay a few thousand $ more on the West Coast because of shipping fees. We ordered from a dealer in Indiana that has a sister store here in SoCal where we picked it up. You pay for shipping one way or another.

Country Mouse: one of my quotes was too Southern California (21k). I'm in Northern California (same shipping distance from factory) and my dealer quoted 24k. Paying for shipping one way or another...shipping distance is nearly equal.

Just for reference, my delivered price to the dealer was approx. $30,350 with the options I chose.


My price was approx. $20,400. About 33% off of the delivered price. Delivery is close to $3800 to the west coast. All this before taxes & license fees.


Just some info for you to chew on. Wireman

The company will mail you out a part directly to replace or fix? I didn't know that.

I gotcha. Your original post was a little confusing. Play dealers against each other and use that argument.

My local dealer did in fact say they only work on RVs they sell. I didn't get a very welcoming feeling from sales manager (they need to put food on the table).
I may look at Grand Designs Imagine if this won't work out.
We bought our White Hawk from RV's of Sac in NOV. which is where I'm assuming you had a negative experience with Jayco. We looked at the Grand Design at Happy Daze RV and really liked them. The only issue was, of all things, the decor. Something about the inside was just not inviting and seemed very cold. But the quality workmanship seemed to be solid. Another TT we considered was the Cruiser Radiance but they were about $5000 more than the Jayco with similar features.

I'm guessing the place you are looking at in SoCal is Richardson's? They are apparently one of the larger Jayco dealers. They probably get a bulk discount which your NoCal dealer may not which is why they can offer a lower price.

It has been my experience (so far) that dealers will work with tourists but not with locals that bought from out of area.
