I rated my Designer a 9 because nothing is perfect, but this one was close. Yes, I have had issues in the past 5 years of full time use, but each item was an item purchased for install by Jayco, not really Jayco's fault. Failures in the past 5 years:

One wheel hub/brake assembly. It was missing the adjuster mechanism and never worked. Dexter

Refrigerator failed. Norcold

Automatic transfer switch (2 failures). First one was IOTA (later recalled by manufacturer, but after mine failed. IOTA no longer makes them). Second one was Progressive Dynamics.

Fresh water pump failed. Shurflo.

I have had a few loose nuts/bolts as others have reported, but nothing that drops my rating even close to lower than a 9. I am very happy with Jayco. All items above were covered by warranty with zero hesitation by Jayco.

2.5 years into owning mine and was only back once for some quick warranty work and other than that it has been great.

Send me a reminder in 2017. At the 5 months mark it is still holding together very nicely.

I would rate our 2013 RLTS an eight. Only problems were front cap fading (repainted) and two blown tires on last 2500 mile trip. Installed lt truck tires and am looking for better results.

We just hit the 2 year mark and no issues I did not expect. Replaced the tires before the first trip and added wetbolts to the suspension at the same time. I replaced the analog thermostat with digital last month. That's about it.

10. Now at four and a half years, and having "extended stayed" in it for a total of about a year and a half, still a 10. Just replaced the converter, only semi-major problem I've encountered that wasn't my own doing. But now I remember to pull up the steps before driving into the barn!

Rated mine 9, same as when new on the other poll. The only issues I had so far were fixed under warranty. Turns out my OEM tires were garbage, but I knew that and have been hoping they would be the exception and last 3-4 years. They won't, so I'm in the "rule" as opposed to the exception and will replace them with over-spec'd tires as soon as I find the deal I want.

Now that the 2-yr warranty is out, I'm a little nervous. I'm afraid something major will fail and I'll be stuck with it. But overall, I'm satisfied with it. I've never run into anything on any of my other large assets that I couldn't fix, so I'll take the same attitude with the trailer. If something major happens, I'll diagnose it, see if I can or need to fix it, and go from there. I'm handy and have a fairly extensive tool collection, so I can get past most things...

Good idea on the wetbolts! I just added that to the list of "to dos" when I replace my tires! Thanks! Guess I'll go ahead and repack the bearings while I'm at it...

We need everyone that is relevant to vote in these quality polls so we can use the info as a reference point. Many times only problems are reported on forums so these polls will show just how good or bad the experience has been for all members. Please Vote.

Well,, just completed my second year of ownership so my warranty is now out. Had major problems at first but they have all been worked out. No problems lately and I would rate this unit a 9+. Still looks great inside and out and everything is working!
