That was one of the things we wanted was the upgraded A/C. Take care and good luck.
Hey bradw. I appreciate the feed back. Yeah I think that's what I'm leaning towards. It's just the price difference is about 4 to 5k, so I'm just weighing the pro's and cons right now. That 15k AC is a must though.

However I noticed that almost all of them that they carry only have the 13.5k air conditioner and I want the 15k. Dealer said they can have the 15k installed but they'll charge me $1,000 to install it. Debating on whether or not I should go this route and save a little money, or pay the full price and get it ordered the way I want it.
Another thing to consider is how long has the camper been on the dealers lot? Does it have 1 winter under their belt while sitting idle on the lot? if you order one, it will be new! we went traveling over the weekend and there was a dealer that has the exact unit we ordered on their lot, me and DW both noticed the trailer was very dirty from sitting on the lot all winter, plus consider all the traffic that has walked through the unit. We are excited about the upgraded ac

TwoBit, Is the price difference because of the options or they want to charge you more because of a factory order?


On other threads I've posted I've stated I got 33% off the sticker including delivery on a factory order.

TwoBit, on the dealer swap of the A/C unit. Seems a little high considering it's a new unit swap. Retail cost is a round $600 for a 15K unit. Dealer cost? They definitely would make $$ on it.


Maybe negotiate 30-40% off if you go that route.


I agree with bradw, the wait is hard but you get exactly what you want. But for an extra $5K I'm not sure.

Well the salesman said the unit on the lot was on sale because it was the last one of the batched they ordered in November of last year. Newer ones are coming at the end of April, beginning of July but he doesn't know what the price will be with them. He did say it won't be this sale price.

He also said all of them that are coming in are with the 13.5k AC because that's what all people need for a TT that size. I really didn't like that answer, so I'm going to look at other dealers. It's a shame cause this dealer is about 20 minutes away from where I live and the next closest is about an hour and 20 minutes.

I'm definitely leaning towards ordering it to the way I like it, although I'd be paying a bit more. For one thing, when I was looking at the one on the lot...one of the door trims was pulled loose and hanging off the frame. Obviously it must've seen a lot of foot traffic and had people abusing it.

So with what I've been told, I should be looking at 33% off the sticker price, which I've mapped out all of my options and it came to $35, 907. I got this from Jayco's website.

Yeah salesperson basically said if I do a factory order, then I basically pay what the MSRP is I guess unless I misunderstood him somehow. For anyone in the California Bay Area, this is with Pan Pacific RV Center in Morgan Hill.

I would verify the final cost of a factory order with them. If it's full price, forget them.


Even if you have to find someone else you will save thousands.


I don't know of anyone who paid full price for an RV of any type. Go on the internet and search your model and you will find dealers in your area.


Build one on here for a price also.

I also requested a quote, so someone should be getting back to me. If I can get anywhere near the 33% off of that price, I'll definitely be a happy camper (pun intended)!
