Good price and that's where it stops. Bought from RVone in Buffalo, what a bunch of jerks.

I purchased from RV Express in Middlebury, Indiana. There price was a few dollars less than RV one and, more important for me I paid nothing for delivery to Az. I was planning a trip back to Ill anyway so it worked out well. I had friends actually watch my unit being built at the factory and I picked it up about a month later. I don't believe jayco sells "seconds" or "reject" units. Sounds like a salesman lie because they can't compete. I think the price was about 30% less than MSRP plus another $3,000 savings on the delivery. They have been great to work with, and, I actually could of picked it up in California at Richardson's which is their company in California, but would of added the delivery charge. I had a very complete PDI stayed two nights at the KOA in Middlebury, toured the TT and 5er plants and had a great experience with RV Express. I would purchase from them again.

I did get a battery, full propane tanks, starter kit with water hose, sewer line etc. If I wanted a second battery I think it was about $100 installed.. nothing was hidden, everything was spelled out in the bid, unit was exactly like I ordered it. At the PDI everything was operating, slides out (and in) etc.

That's funny because that's what RV One said to me about the dealer who was 7g's lower then they were.

PDI was never done by dealer, items they were supposed to fix they didn't, you have to pay upfront before they will even say they are going to address any issues, you have to accept delivery before inspecting camper!! Pretty much leaves you with nothing to pressure them to do there job, and they just lie like crazy. We finally got them after two attempts to pick up trailer to fix most things but what a pain. I had to fix everything else on my own including pulling dvd/radio because tv was never even hooked up.Only filled one propane cylinder! Told me over $1400 dollars for a dual cam reese hitch! Mostly minor things but what the heck it's new! Just went to Florida and back and love camper but as usual few things that arose. I wouldn't take it back to them to put a new cap on a valve stem. Love the camper though!!

That's the reason we pay a higher price at our local dealer...they have an awesome service department and care about doing a great job with any repairs whether under warranty or out of pocket.

For us they are a local dealer, 15 minutes away. They had one of the only 26BHS left as they are discontinued floor plan. Kind of knew what we were getting into dealing with them but it still surprised me how inept they were. Just putting it out there for people that are considering going that route. If your handy and don't mind taking care of small issues it can work. If you get a serious defect or issue you'll be kicking yourself because the service just won't be there.

Quoted us a great price at the Tampa RV show this past January, but from that point on it went downhill quickly. When they ran our credit, they "shopped" and created multiple hard inquiries on our credit records and ran credit for almost triple the "verbally" quoted price. The ONLY reason I can think of for them running that high of a credit check was because there was a boatload of "extras" that weren't even mentioned yet.


Thank goodness for my credit monitoring app on my phone because when I confronted the manager about all of this before walking away, he denied they do business that way.


Then for the icing on the cake. In order to do the credit checks and such, they required a 1000.00 deposit. We were assured that it would be refunded "promptly" if we couldn't come to terms. Well, after weeks of sending a half dozen emails that got nothing but "excuses" and then a couple of phone calls with the last one threatening a chargeback, they finally refunded it.


Never again.

My take on it is that all dealerships have horror stories and fairy tales. Some people would complain if a slot machine gave them dirty coins. That's also not to say that there aren't worse dealerships, but I suspect even the best dealerships have some unhappy customers. I think people are more forthcoming with bad reviews.

I think I've also come to realize that there are some dealerships that must have worked out some special deal for a specific model from Jayco. I've mostly been working with KeystoneRV and RV1 as they have been giving me the best prices by far. However, RV1 couldn't compete with the price from KeystoneRV on a 264BHW and KeystoneRV couldn't compete with price RV1 was giving on a 26BH. Of the dozen or so other dealers that I chatted with, they either said to buy from the other guys as they must be losing money, something is wrong with the trailer, or they will charge you more once you get there.
