Nice upgrade! Your tow rig will be more than capable for that trailer, you likely don't even know it's there lol!

I can't even tell any difference between pulling the 19Bh or the 28BHS

You can also mount a smaller TV on an articulating mount on the wall up and to the right while laying on the bed. That's where Jayco wants you to put it.
So I was out checking the wall for the tv mount tonight and it appears they put plywood all the way across at the end of the bed. I was planning on mounting a 32" TV in the center of the wall. It makes me nervous even thinking about this lol. Do you take your tv off the wall when traveling?

Wow! You got one hell of a deal! I may just call my dealer and make them this offer, see if they go for it. Thanks for sharing. He offered me $8500 for mine site unseen. I am sure I could squeeze a little more. Love those Jaycos! Talk about holding your value.

Yes, we took the TV off the wall and put it on the bed. You'd be surprised though with lag bolts a low profile holds in there pretty good. Obviously, the lighter the TV, the better. Our 40" Samsung LED was pretty light compared to a lot of LCD sets.

I was literally floored when the offered me $9500 for it!!! The weird thing I don't understand is they have it listed for $9500 on their website right now which lead me to believe you could have bought the camper outright for a bit less money?? The price on the camper seemed ok though at $18500 compared to the numbers I got from two other places. Oh well I am happy with it so I am not going to worry about it to much I'm just going to go enjoy it! I was really happy it has the comfort package in already. It came with dark tinted windows, roof ladder, grill, maxistor door, and a bunch of other odds and ends that most of the ones we called about didn't have.

It has been raining like crazy off and on so I took some time to hang the TV at the end of the queen bed.

I hated where the put the supports to hang the tv and wanted to put it right in the middle of the queen bed. I tried to locate a vertical stud but couldn't find one where I wanted it. I ended up getting the bottom bolt of the tv mount in a horizontal stud and then drilled a 1/4" hole through the wall and made a support brake in the kitchen cabinet. I then bolted through the top hole of the tv bracket through the wall. All in all it works great and I no have my tv centered where I want it! I also loaded up a blu ray player and hooked it up so my wife and I can watch movies in bed



Support Bracket. I am going to stain it tomorrow.
