Get the Gel Coat. I opted for the high gloss at $150.00 option which was no brainer. The sides are much smoother then my 2011 was. Much better than trying to do yourself and if it fails you can claim under warranty.

I have the premier package and the remote is good for the slides and adjusting the level of the unit during setup as well as when you hitch up.

You don't have to pay full price for it. Negotiate and shop around, good luck.

It's the same thing..high gloss gel coat. Smooth and shinny like a boat.

That was my first thought, too. But apparently some lower end units don't gel coat, some offer it as an up to $2000 option. Don't know about Jayco, I thought they all were gel coated.

All the fiberglass RVs have a gel coat finish. The high gloss finish is just thicker and absolutey smooth. Rub your hand on your fiberglass. If it has a little texture then it's not high gloss. You can see the fibers when looking at it. High end motor homes have high gloss finishes and now Jayco is offering it on select models. It's eaiser to keep clean and more durable etc. with high gloss you can't see the fibers.

99 percent of RV's have high gloss doors. Look at your door fiberglass and compare to the RV siding. You will see a difference if not high gloss.
