Newbie nervous and excited

We purchased a 2018 Jayco Greyhawk 30xp from small town dealer. We dealt at the RV show, but had to order the rig. We are scheduled to pick up on Friday. I've read many good, but also bad things about RVs and Jayco from the Internet. Hubby and I discussed this issue, shopped, did the research, found a floor plan, attended the show, then returned to RV dealer to give deposit. Dealer was not able to locate our unit, so we ordered it. This is good and bad. I'm an avid researcher and read everything. Again, I read many good things but also bad! Picking up RV on Friday. Any advice?

We camped 20 years ago with pop up and parents had a class c.

Glad to have you here in the forum with us. You'll love it here.

Spend a few days in the rig and use everything to make sure all is working. This way if something is wrong you will be able to have it fixed right away. If you can try to get video of the PDI so you'll know how everything works. The video makes a good refresher.

Happy Trails!!!

Camp close to home for a couple days. Make a list of what you find wrong take back to dealer. Might take a few times though.

Bonnshack, you sound like us! We found our rig online, flew up to Wisconsin and drove it 1200 miles back to Houston. Thank God I took this forum's advice to video the walk through instructions or who knows what trouble we would have found ourselves in. Good thing we like to read!!

Welcome to the group!

Congrats! No matter what forum you read, there will be positives and negatives. Not all rv's are 100% perfect. Nor is it a perfect world. Do a shake down cruise, visit campgrounds and use everything to see what is or is not to your satisfaction. Than refer to your dealer for repairs.

Storage

Another issue is that we live in the northeast. We are picking it up, driving it home, and packing it some. Then it will go into storage for the winter. We won't be able to use it until spring. Any thoughts or concerns? I did buy silicone to absorb any moisture.

Welcome

I'm sure there are lots of mixed feelings - nervous? Excited?
Don't sweat it - lots of help help here @ iRV2

Before you put the rig to sleep for the winter...

Check the post re Kidde Fire Extinguisher Recall and see if you have one of the recalled units aboard. Be sure to check post #46 as there is actually 2 lists one US one Canada and some of us are finding we have Canadian units and it takes a little different process to get them covered.

Good luck w/ the new rig

We have had the 30X for a year now. The good thing is they give you a 2 year warranty with it. Give you lots of time to find out what does not work. We like ours. Have about 10,000 miles on it.

Bonnshack...where in the northeast are you. We are in the Adirondacks. Just traded our 2016 Greyhawk 31DS for the Precept 35S. We enjoyed the Greyhawk very much, just felt we need a bit more room since we are in it for four months during the winter.

We picked it up!

Well Friday came and we headed to RVdealership. Small family owned business. They were wonderful. Then had to drive home in the dark. Deer were everywhere. Just missed a deer accident by only several minutes.
So, we got it home. Did some cleaning. And, packed it a little.
Since we live about an hour east of Pittsburgh, we will be putting it in storage this week.
Thank you all for all the welcomes and advice. Truly blessed and greatly appreciative.

Hello:

Getting ready to pull the trigger on a 30XP. Purchasing from RV Direct down in FL. Proud owners of a 2011 Jayco 29QBH, which we are selling. Looking for any recommendations or insight on the 30XP and RV Direct. Price is the best we have come across unless I am missing something.
