Here's my take. My previous fiver was one of the "best selling" 5th wheels made and I never had problems with it but on their owner's forum there were horrendous problems reported like broken frames and busted holding tanks. I bought my Jayco '12 model in '13 and have had minimal problems and am more than satisfied. The two year warranty is great because, for most of us, it takes that long to find out if there are any problems at all. One year just isn't a long enough warranty period for any RV unless you are going to full-time.
Having said all of that, I would be concerned about buying ANY RV at this time because the industry is cranking them out at a record pace and at those record levels, there are usually problems.
I get a blog from one unfortunately couple who retired and went full-time. After about 9 months of being on the road, they spent the next 9 months in a motel in northern Indiana waiting on their 5er to be fixed, only to find out that it couldn't be repaired so waited for a brand new one to be built (BTW, not a Jayco). Nice folks. Makes the problems on this Jayco site seem somewhat small.
Go for it cuz you only live once and life should be an experience eh?
