Within the Jayco family which one is better ?

My WH 24 RBS 2014 disapointed me so much ... thank God Jayco respect their warranty.

However Im considering getting rid of it .... I lost all my confidence in it.

So am I going to have better luck with a Jayflight... Im looking at a conventional construction and no laminated floor for sure.

Ill stay with Jayco only for the warranty and the way they handle it
What do you think within the Jayco family, which one is a better quality or a better built Jayflight , Jayflight SLX , Eagle, Eagle HT ?

I'm not sure what you mean by conventional construction. We have the SLX (264BHW) because (a) we had to have something we could tow with our SUV at the time, and (b) we like the aluminum siding look. However, we are not anywhere close to being full timers, and ours specifically states it's meant for recreation.

Other then some minor inconveniences that were easily remedied, I have had zero issues with my Jayflight 28BHBE. We have used it hard in her first season and pulled her quite a few miles. Obviously this is just my experience but I am very happy with the quality of my rig.

We had a White Hawk and now have an Eagle. The Eagle feels a little more solid to me, but the fit and finish is on par with our WH. We had about 11k miles and close to 70 nights in the WH when we traded her, and never any issues - if we hadn't wanted a little more space we'd probably still have her. We've used the Eagle a lot this year, and so far so good

Remember that all Jayco's are assembled at the same factory by the same people.


Fit and finish is pretty much the same across all lines.


Going with a simpler unit will definitely save you lots of headaches. But don't expect it to be better.


I love my Jayflight 19RD. Being that it is still a mechanical contrivance, there will always be issues.

By conventional construction I mean wood , insulating wool and a plywood floor....a la Jayflight

Take a look at the Starcraft Line. Starcraft is owned by Jayco and offers the same warranty. The fit and finish seems to be a little bit better than the Jaycos.
