Advice on Jay Flight Slx 224BH/212QB

Hey all, I've been lurking for some time but this is my 1st post.

It's a crazy market out there with few used units, and dealers selling units right and left like hotcakes!

Its mainly me + two kids that will use trailer and initially I started looking at 174BH but it am really liking the 224BH/212QBW. Seems like a walk-around queen, larger kitchen, actual fridge, more propane, more water, outdoor shower, better bathroom, are going to pay off down the road. Of these two models the bunk one probably make way more sense so everyone has permanent beds but I do really like the layout of the 212QB too.

I just put a hold on a new 2020 224BH for 17k (27k msrp). Seems like a decent price but I do understand according to NADA in 1-2 years it will probably be worth 13k

I guess I'm not gonna worry too much about the Baja (flipped axles) or Western edition (thermal and larger water) packages. Its hard enough to locate a regular Jayco. We will do lots of dry camping in the outdoors but I could have the axles flipped if it becomes an issue I guess.

Anyway we're pretty excited.. This will be our first trailer. Any advice or thoughts? Thanks!!

First and foremost, do not take the trailer off the dealers lot and hand over any money until it is 100%. DO NOT accept it with the promise to fix things when it is back for warranty work.

Ken sure they demonstrate ever system on board and all water line work. Take a flash light with you to check for leaks in the cabinets and lockers.

Thanks Ken, that's a great point. I understand with new units there is a good (maybe guaranteed) chance there will be issues that I will have to work them through under warranty. I plan do do a very detailed pre-sale check, pressurizing and checking all plumbing is a good idea,

Unfortunately there are not any units near me and I'm looking at driving about 1k miles and make a trip out of the whole thing. I guess it will be a huge road trip if it doesn't work out.

Yowzers! Not recommended?
