As for the electric jack... is it really worth the extra $275 that they are charging us? Opinions?

Now to check out online prices for the accessories vs the dealer. Any recommendations on the type of cover we should purchase? We got a quote from the dealer but wanted to look around online too. Thanks!
Which dealer? Vicars? If it's them, they're prices are jacked up. I get better prices on many things from Walmart or online. I haven't looked at many electric jacks, but that cost seems high - but I have only seen the ones in the Camping World ad. I'm sure it's worth the cost, I plan on getting one before the season starts.

Welcome from the Flint area! Electric jack is definitely worth it.

electric jack is worth it but not at that price!
you can get a refurb UF unit for a little over $100 and it takes about 30 minutes to install. 3 bolts and a couple of wires.

We haven't actually met in person with the dealer yet (except at the show), we have an appointment there on Saturday. I have been dealing with Justin over email, getting name brands of the accessories they are trying to sell us so I can price shop online. I do think we changed our mind of which TT we want to get. We like the Roo 25RS but we think that the Shasta Revere 26RLSLE is a better match for us. (It's just us two 95% of the time so why not have more living space and get rid of the bunks). Waiting to hear back from Vicar's to see what price they are willing to offer us on the Shasta. (And to get a few specs to make sure we can tow with a Chevy 1500, since it's a 2012 I have had a hard time finding specs online). I will let you all know what happens when we go in on Saturday! It's okay I am already planning our first trip even though we don't have a camper yet right?

They gave us a decent trade in our pop up. I don't know who Justin is, I don't think. We had our Disney trip booked before we purchased our Roo. LOL

welcome, Mi is the best place to camp. as for the elect jacks I do not like them and I hate the stabilizers that are elect. my last camper (2011 travel trailer) had all elect and this new one has them also (just stabilizers) save your money because you can find something else to spend your money on , like have them install a cover over the roof vent, or a nice ground cover , or sweet ass canopy lights, gas money,

Good luck on Saturday. And nothing wrong with planning ahead - your first camping trip.
