We purchased a new Jayco Eagle 2 years ago. We had what I consider major problems out the shoot. However, the dealer had everything working in good order in short time. I must say, since then, we have had nothing but smooth sailing. I have owned 3 other Jayco products in the last 20 years and have really had no issues with any of the other rigs. I think this was a fluke and the wife and I simply love this rig. It has 3 slides and knock on wood, we have had no issues with the slides or motors. It is a beautiful looking rig and even though two years old, we still get comments and how beautiful the rig is both inside and out. I don't think you can go wrong with a Jayco as they are the only manufacturer with a two year warranty. So if you have any problems, you have two years to get all the kinks out. Good luck and happy camping!

We have a two year old 351 RSTS. A few minor warranty problems including a slide issue. The slide issue was an operator error (stopping the slide while in motion and not waiting, causing the slide motors to end up out of "sync"). We had an issue with the levelling system but again a good read of the instructions also solved that problem. My biggest beef is the lousy operators manual that is generic and not specific to the unit. Jayco could go a long way in solving many warranty issues by offering with the unit a unit specific manual.

FYI get rid of the stock tires asap.

I would certainly purchase another Jayco.

We sure love ours. Bought it off the lot, so we didn't get to order it. Fortunately it was loaded, just as we would have ordered it anyway. The only problem we encountered was the cheap crap Ranier tires it came with. No option to have the dealer upgrade them so we ran the Raniers the first year and a month ago or so we went thru trailertiresandwheels.com and upgraded to the high pressure rims and Sailun S637 G rated 14 ply tires. The coach is beautiful! Well trimmed with great quality stuff. We couldn't be happier with our choice.

We shopped for over a year before we ordered our North Point, going to numerous RV shows and a few of the reputable dealers. We liked the Jayco brand from the start, but thought we'd play it smart and shop around before finalizing our plans. In the end, our initial instincts were what we went with as the product just stood out as a superior camper. I wish I could give you notes from our experience with her, but we take delivery in a couple weeks. Very excited for that day to arrive!

The one thing that stood out was the quality of the product, which just seemed higher than the competition. That they back it up with a 2 year warranty was also important, as our previous camper, a Fleetwood, had an issue in our second season that wasn't covered. In the end, you should go with what feels right to you as you'll literally be living with your choice! Good luck in your search!

I've had 2 sizable issues, neither one directly attributable to Jayco. The electric rear stabilizer motor gathered enough moisture inside to rust out the brush springs. Second issue was on one of the brakes. The clips to secure the electrical wires were never connected inside the drum area. The wires rubbed on the drum causing a short. My P3 identified the condition and disabled the brakes. Thankfully this happened during a pre-trip check and the only issue was losing my deposit for the campground which I had to cancel.

There were a couple of other items which I would consider minor enough. A slide switch failed, moulding came loose, improperly secured shelf, all items which were easily repairable without a trip to the dealer.
