Also is the grill mounted to the ready bumper easy to use or does the awning arm get in the way? Thanks for any feedback you can give on that floorplan.
Hi there. So far so good. Admittedly, only got three weekends in before winter hit so we haven't spent a ton of time in it. The outside kitchen has grown on me. It wasn't a must have item when we were purchasing but the rest of the unit had everything else we
were looking for.Turns out I really like the outside kitchen, very functional but I too would like if it included a burner. No issues with the awning that I noticed, but we only set it up on one of the weekends. We looked at Sabre and Rockwood as well, but the Jayco floorplan was the best for us and the quality was as good or slightly better than the other two in our opinion. The two year warranty was a factor as well as the dealership we bought from was the closest and one that we had purchased from before. We haven't tried the grill yet. They forgot to include it when we picked it up. It was only after Jayco finally updated their website I saw the grill was standard equipment on that model. Called dealership and got them to throw it in the unit while it was there for some minor warranty work. We'll try it out next spring.
