Next weekend we are going to do a walk-thru in the 26BH, 25BHS and the 267BHS before we lock in on one of them.
We looked at the 26BH and the 25BHS in addition to the 28BHS that we went with. The 26BH was about 2,000 less then the 28BHS and the 25BHS was about 2,000 more. I can see why the 28BHS would be more because of the slide. But could not really see why the 25BHS was another 2 grand, the only real difference was the slide was larger.

Hi Type-A, As i said earlier we bought th 26bh and are very happy. But I just double checked the MSRP price list I had when we bought ours. Base prices are as follows...

26BH. $17,206
28BHS $19,803
25BHS. $22,019

I don't have the 267BHS, is that a swift model?

I agree that even $2500 difference between 26bh and 28bhs is a lot of money, but when you think in the terms of owning something for the years we expect to have our trailer the cost difference become a smaller burden.

Good Luck and enjoy the process.

From what I was told (and you mentioned) is the 25BHS slider is larger than the 28BHS and with the larger slider the 25 gives you the same square footage as the 28 when the slider is out. For us, the 25 had a better layout.

Yes the 267BHS is a Swift model.

Believe me, I understand the 2 grand here, 2 grand there to get something different or bigger - we've been boating for 12 years where we went from a 22' cuddy to a 26' pocket cruiser to a 30' cruiser with twin engines, ac/heat, generator, etc. LOL

My Jayco dealer called me yesterday afternoon and said that he just took in a 2011 25BHS in trade. He's going to call me on Monday with some numbers and if it's good, we'll do a walk thru before slapping down some cash.

I agree the larger slide on the 25BHS opens up the living area more. I just could not see where the additional 2 grand in MSRP price comes from, all things considered. I guess the important thing is get what fits your situation, your tow vehicle, your wallet, and most important what your DW likes!

I totally agree Crabman, that's why we will be looking at a used 25BHS as another option to a new 26BHs.

That's awesome! I'm sure that'll help make your decision much easier. I've read the comments on your thread since we're trading up also. It's always helpful to read the differing opinions and the reasons why.

If it eases the pain in the wallet, that'll be great! LOL
Yeah it's always cool to read what other people are thinking and doing when in a similar situation.
