After years of looking, researching, discussions and budget analysis, we have finally pulled the trigger on a 2015 Jayco Jay Flight 26BH. She's a beauty! we decided we wanted to pay cash and not finance a camper so we were looking at used ones. We went to a dealership that had a very nice looking stored indoors 2004 jayfeather for 6200. we drove 1.5 hours only to find that it was sold! the salesman we were dealing with in the past was not there and we talked to a different guy. He had the sales manager come out and we told him we were a little upset with the other guy because he knew we were coming and he knew what we were looking for and he didn't tell us that camper was sold. So they showed us a few trailers that were junk to me. and then they hit me with the Jayco. This was just what we were looking for. so I asked how much and he said it's on sale for 10,999 I told him why are you even showing this I told you i'm not spending over 8,000. He said lets go back to the office and talk because i think i can get this into your price range. Well, I doubted it but ok. He ran the numbers and said at 10999 out the door would be something close to 12,500. I grabbed my keys and told my wife let's go, and told him thanks for wasting our time. He said hold on please, how about you make an offer, I told you I think I can get it into your budget. so I wrote on the paper $8500 with a hitch. so he took it to the manager and he came back with $8500 with out the hitch, $9,000 out the door with the hitch. I immediately thought whats wrong with this trailer that they are going to drop it 3500 bucks but this thing is nice. Long story short...We are picking it up on Wednesday. Here are a few pictures.

Looks nice. Might be about ready for new tires though being a 2015 model year.
Check the date codes on the tires.

Out of precaution, I'd probable replace them anyway. Goodyear Endurance is looking to be a good tire.

Nice looking unit. $8500 is about right for that unit, $20k new, 5 years old, they were probably hoping to sell it for closer to $10k but better to take the cash now then let it sit on the lot another 3-4 months, or worse have it on the books at the end of the year. Just think of how little they have the previous owner on trade-in if they could sell it to you for that and make a profit.

Now you know what kind of markup they try to get on those.
