Couldn't agree more about the Indiana RV Connection. I've never regretted driving 4000 miles round trip to buy my White Hawk from them. They're simply the best.

I want to thank you all for your input. There are a couple of the 2010`s that he has that would suit our needs and has lots of options like the bike rack,roof ladder,hideabed,grill,extra insulation pkg,15kbtu A/C pkg to name a few. These trailers are jayflight G2`s and one eagle.

What would be a fair discounted rate since they are 3 model years old ? I am sure if any issues arose the 2yr factory warranty would take care of it. I really want to buy from someone at least a couple of hrs away or less in case if I have to have warranty work done. Thanks for all the input.

You got that right. I am looking at a 2013 bungalow park model. I live in Jackson, MI and there are dealers in Lansing, MI (40 miles away) and Coldwater, MI (35 miles away). The RV Connection in Middlebury, IN is 100 miles away and there price for the model I am looking for are between $4,000 and $5,000 cheaper. Why would I not buy from the RV Connection?

You can go to there website at www.yourrvconnection.com and pick out the unit you want with any options you would like and get a quote in a matter of a few hours.

This is where i just bought my TT. Great people and the best price. Plus, they make sure that when you
pick up your TT it is ready for camping. They give you all the hoses, LP and the extras as part of doing business.

I just got a quote from RV direct on a 2013 Jayflight in orlando which is the closest dealer to me and the discount was about 25 %. The MSRP is $ 29,907 and their price was $ 22,220. That price is lower than the dealers close by for a 2013 but I really like the idea of buying one closer in case I have to get warranty work done. Decisions Decisions .

I am also awaiting a quote from the rv connection.

That dealer gave me a Jayco order sheet that listed MSRP and costed every option separately. Later that night, on the Jayco web site, I used thier build tool and got a totally different MSRP. The next day I called jayco to ask what actual MSRP was and they emailed me a new order/price form with once again different pricing. Finally, a week or so later we drove a couple hundred miles to a dealership that had a unit on thier lot so we could see it in person...guess what the "the window sticker" had once again different prices. So what I found was 4 documents/tools, all created by Jayco, for 2012 model year TTs that showed a different MSRP for identically optioned 26BH.

Hence my opinion, MSRP is being manipulated to assist in making sales...and Jayco, intentionally or not, is supporting this practice.

Clubhouse,
That is very interesting. The dealer that has the 2010`s that we have looked at online are already discounted on the dealers website so we are able to see the discount in writing. I know that they are 3 yrs old also but the wife and I like the fact that they have options that we are looking for and the interior wood color is lighter which we like. I have not spoken to the dealer yet but they may even dicount them some more .
As someone mentioned earlier about the tires and sealants sitting that long, I would think that Jayco would take care of any issues if they arose. Thanks for the advice.

How much did the Jayco MSRP prices vary? (not dealer MSRP)

Jayco will honor the two year warranty on a new unit even if it is three years old. If a unit sits on the lot a long time it can become subject to what some call "lot rot". That simply means everything exposed to the weather has already aged 3 years. The tires have a certain life to them wether used or not, some say replace every 5 years regardless of tread condition. All that being said if you find a unit you really like at a discount which takes all this into account, then go for it. As you mentioned the light oak interior is no longer in production, we have that in ours and like it. I can tell you our 2010 Jayflight has been a solid unit. As for the dealer pricing, I`m willing to wager that a unit that has been sitting on the lot that long the dealer will be ready to deal on that baby. Make them a lowball offer and see what happens. 40% off MSRP at least. If they refuse to come down, walk away and continue the quest elsewhere.
