My wife and I have been looking at TT's for the last year or so. We opted for the Hybrids because the beds are taken out of the floor plan and you gain "liveable space". So, we started looking at the various brands of hybrids, Coachmen, Rockwood and others, But what kept bringing us back to Jayco was the lay-out of the X23B. My wife especially liked the extra counter space it offered and the extra drawers as well.

Plus, every you-tube video we looked at, they all stated that Jayco was made by the Amish!!! Need I say more??

We brought it home from the dealer last week-end and we are very pleased with the quality!

The Amish gentleman that made the cabinets for our range and next to the microwave must have lost his level. The range is tilted to the rear of the stove and Sallie has to shim up bake pans to bake anything in the oven. According to Jayco an uneven range is "not a problem". We will be taking our quality Jayco product in for the 5th time next week. It has been out of service at one dealer or another for a total of 45 days. This thing has been in the shop for so many warranty items that I don't see how Jayco could possibly make a profit on it. Jayco has fixed everything that has happened except for the crooked cabinets. The superior bonded siding with bubbles on the slide most likely will just stay with the trailer as they want us to take it to the selling dealer in Phoenix. We will live with the bubbles in the siding rather than let them work on the trailer. OK, rant over and I feel better.

I asked people about their experience with TT over a periode of 1.5 years. Then with all the answers I found that Jayco was head and shoulders above the rest as far as positive customers comments. Not one product was without some problems, but the numbers and severity of the problems was my concern. I think, if I remember right, I talked to over 800 people in that year and a half. In the end my wife and I purchased a Skylark TT (21 Feet long) and pulling it with our 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the Hemi V-8 (its my first V-8 in 55 years of driving). Anyway, we think we got a great product and what few things have gone wrong, they've been fixed quickly.

I've not seen this reason mentioned, but perhaps I've missed it in 4 pages of posts:

We liked the 2 year warranty and the quality of the TT. Plus the Jayco was cheaper than the others.

I actually wanted the Heartland Northtrail 28bhs, but when I found a brand new Jayco 28bhs for half the price I couldn't pass it up. I haven't been disappointed with the decision.

We were loyal SunnyBrook customers but could not find anything we wanted. Went with Jayco Eagle for the Price point , local dealer service, and floor plan, Went with this model cause it meet our wants and also and came equipped with E rated tires. Once my wife saw the bathroom it was sold.

We just bought our second Jayco 197. I bought a 2008 last year, but it proved a bit too small for my wife and I. We stopped at a big dealer yesterday "just have a look" and came home with a 2012 197 with a slide-out. I was impressed with the first one with regards to quality, but ever more impressed with the 2012 because of the vast improvement in living space due to the slide-out and the obvious commitment to making improvements and useful changes. One look inside with the slide-out sold the trailer.
