Howdy all,

I was just wondering how many old Jayco fifth wheels are still out there and being enjoyed? Also, who has the oldest one still in use?

I'll start. I have a 1995 Jacyo Designer 3430RKS. It is still in good shape and I hope to get a lot of use out of it this year. I'm even doing some upgrades.

I don't have a dog in this hunt, but I will be interested in seeing some older units that are still alive and well.

Great pics.

Still has an elegance to it

This is the 1988 Jayco Designer that we just sold. My inlaws bought it new and used it every year until my mother-in-law passed away. Father-in-law gave it to us and we have used it for the past 5 years. Frig has been worked on and of course new tires but everything else is still original and in great shape, even the awning. We sold it to a family new to camping and they are so excited to have it. Asked our dealer if this 5er will last as long and he couldn't give us an answer

Wow they are still in great shape, we can only hope the newer ones look as good twenty years down the road. It is a sad reality though that things today are generally not as well made sigh!

Rickjp's 1988 Designer is the winner so far. Still a nice looking rig.

Have a 1996 Jayco Eagle 30ft 5th wheel. Bought it last year just to test the waters as we have never had an RV. Turns out that we love the lifestyle. The unit is in immaculate condition as the previous owner really cared for it. We hauled it from Idaho to Quartzsite last fall with no issues. Bought land with 3 RV spots on it so now we have a place to winter after retirement. Then we will be upgrading to a larger and newer 5th wheel.
