Rog4kneer, Right now we are pulling the Skylark with a Dodge Caravan and it pulls really well, sometimes I forget its there! We have taken it on dirt, gavel & a washboard road and it did really well, nothing moved out of place.
As for dislikes, there isn’t much to not like about this trailer!
We had a few things that needed attention when we did our walk thru, the dealer made a list and had no problem oking them to be serviced. The biggest issue was the windows, at the dealer (I assume) they must have buffed the windows, I noticed it at our walk thru and they are replacing all the windows for us, the windows are actually in but we haven’t been home long enough to take it back for the repairs.
Here are the suggestions that I sent to Jayco,
1.) The Rod in the clothes closet needs to be moved up about 3” so the clothes hang properly. (Dealer is moving it up for me)
2.) Radio/DVD/Sound system, I would suggest making a small cabinet under the galley area cabinets next to where the cables are for the TV, currently the radio/DVD system is next to the door and the remote doesn’t work so well.
The one suggestion that I didn’t send them yet is the cushions on the dinette side seems to slip when driving, I would suggest putting just a small lip around the outside of the base to secure them in place. I’m going to try the non slip material under them on our next trip.
OK so here are my personal dislikes if you call them that….
1.) Outside step is only 1 step; I might change to be two steps or at least a wider step.
2.) Thermostat has lines to indicate the temperature; I wish it showed the temp as a number so I would know what temp I'm setting it at.
3.) Stove, I cook a lot and usually I have at least two things on the stove at a time, it’s a little cramped on the stove for two pan/pots. In the summer I’ll cook outside but winter camping I usually cook indoors.
• LOVE the cabinets being rounded
• LOVE all the storage
• LOVE the space, it feel so roomy without the weight of a slide, we had 8 adults inside playing games when it was cold & rainy.
• LOVE the big giant windows!
• LOVE the new style of blinds, once they are down no one can see inside.
• LOVE that the table turns so you can have it close to the door side and if you flip it around it’s in the center of the space!
• Like not having carpeting inside, we just put down a couple of rugs that can be washed.
• LOVE the clean look on the outside with the propane tanks being in the back in their own compartment!
• LOVE how well insulated it is, if your talking inside you have to open a window if you want the person on the outside to hear you.
• LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the unique shape of the outside, so many people take a 2nd look because it’s so different, it’s not like your friends trailers that all have the box front end!
It was already upgraded with the roof a/c & furnace, which would be an upgraded that I would have asked to be done so it was perfect.
Just a FYI we dry camped for 4 days in the cold we ran the heat, refrigerator & hot water tank on propane and used about 2 gallons, it was very efficient!
Ok I think that’s it, hope you wanted an honest replay because that’s what you got!
