Did you order your trailer or buy off the lot? If you ordered, how long was the wait?


Congrats on a new trailer, I'm jealous!

I custom ordered the trailer. It took 12 weeks from order to delivery to the dealer. The unit was built December 16th, but apparently there was a deficiency...the sofa was missing or had a problem... Jayco then had their yearly 2 week shutdown over Christmas and New Years. It was not until a week after that that the sofa was installed and the unit was shipped. I would think that 8 weeks would be about how long it normally takes to get a unit.

When I'm draining my FW tanks on the road (yeah, yeah, I know...) it sprays and looks almost like smoke, but you can definitely tell in the mirror where it's coming from.

I like the go pro idea, that might be some neat footage...

Nice rig by the way! Congrats!!

Keep tabs on your water levels. We would lose 1/3 or more of our water between home and the camping destination (100+miles) until we put a valve on the overflow tubes. BUT you must remember to have the valve open when filling your FW tank or you might inflate the tank like a balloon. On some units, The overflow acts as the air vent.
