What to ask for

We will be picking up our new 192HW in a couple of weeks. Are there add-on accessories we should consider that you found useful? Did you have any luck with the dealer "throwing in" any extras during the sale?

Is this your first RV?
Do you have basic things like sewer hose and connections, water hose, power cord extensions? If you don't, those are always good things to ask for.
Vent covers, step carpets, patio mats, chairs, grill, and other odds and ends are some of the things I've been offered by my selling dealers.

This is not our first. We just sold our pop-up, which we've been camping in for the past 10-years. Kids are grown so we're getting the A frame.

I was able to have the dealer include a n extra year on the warranty and the awning. About a $650 value for both. I also had him deduct the cost of a battery as I purchased two 6 volt AGM's separately. Of course this was all negotiated before I signed. I think they threw in a hose for the drain, the 30 amp power cord a couple other small items, but this was included in the dealer prep fee, so I really paid for those items. I think I got them to reduce the fee some but can't remember how much. Good luck and hope you enjoy it.

Electric tongue jack if they don't already include that.
The factory tent/canopy:


I use a separate EZ-UP / First-Up canopy, but some folks like the factory attached unit.

I really like my factory canopy. Battery woukd be a good thing to ask for. Mine came with the power tongue jack, but I asked them for the manual jack and they gave it to me along with the swivel wheel

We have had our high wall now for 3 years and love it. A battery and spare tire should be included with the unit. We received a 30 foot water hose and outside screen for the furnace at no charge. Being we got a very good deal to start with, we felt happy with the extras. At that time we bought the camper at $4,000 below list and felt more than satisfied with that. I know others that paid more and got chairs or the screen tent with theirs. Talk to the dealer before they get the final check.

I second the electric lift jack.

After you have had one, you won't do without.

Take the new rig out for a couple of nights as a shakedown cruise. You'll figure out what extras you need pretty quick.
