Jayco - Building A Jayco Travel Trailer In 7 Hours Pure Junk

Jayco - Building A Jayco In Travel Trailer In 7 Hours How they assemble a Jayco Travel Trailer in only 7 hours! Amazing crap built ...

My new 2016 Jayco Precept 31UL Class A RV has horrible construction. Very poor quality. I would never recommend that anyone buy a Jayco product. Nothing but problems we have only used it for five days. It has been at the RV dealership since June 30, 2016, except when we took it on a four-day trip from CA to OR, and experienced many more problems. False advertising. Jayco is not built by the Amish and there is no "Old World Amish Craftsmanship" involved in the construction. It's a rattling piece of junk!
Everyone that brings up this youtube video should be forced into sitting in front of their TV screen for 7 hours and watch it being built in real time. C'mon people, common sense here, it's a video showing all the steps it takes to build a trailer, not how fast they can build one.

Jayco themselves told me our 5er would be built in 1 day. That is one shift, not 24 hours, so 7 hours seems right, from what I was told by them.

Glad you finally got what you wanted in the end... I'll bet it'll be worth the extra hassle.

Not to mention the guy that posted that video has some sort of affiliation with Lance RV's. He denies it, but I call BS! If you look at his other posts, he has over 200 Lance videos touting how great they are.

I searched high and low before I ordered a Jayco. I looked at dozens of other TT's. For the price range of the Jay Flight I purchased, I saw no brand that came close to initial quality of rigs I saw on dealer lots. I couldn't believe what some dealers were showing me! Doors falling off hinges, crooked woodwork and trim, rusty frames, the list goes on and on.

True, but most of the components are pre assembled and just installed on the chassis. How many cars or trucks come off of GM, FORD or CHRYSLERS line per hour, a lot more than 1.

Been to the Jayco factory, all the parts and components are pre assembled and just installed to the Chassis on the line, Including the wiring Harnesses that are all pre laid out for the model in production. that video is bogus, obvious attempt at discrediting Jayco.

Sorry you had to go through so much to get what you wanted, but in the end you have it and all the best with it. Jayco Customer service went out of there way for me, so I cannot say one bad thing about them.

There isn't a manufacture out there that doesn't have issues, We looked high and far before buying our Precept, After using it for several months now we couldn't be more pleased with the quality of the unit. To each their own but for us our Jayco Precept is exactly what we were looking for.
