Thanks for everyone chiming in, it makes me feel a little bit more comfortable. The real comfort level will come after all is fixed and stays that way.

I feel the same way about the front landing gear, not nearly stout enough for what it is lifting.

This is what I'll be ordering to replace mine. I intended to do it a year ago, but I had a wedding (my daughter's) to get behind me first. That wedding is now behind me and I am now free to spend a few bucks.

Thanks. Good to know. We are on our second weekend using our camper. I mentioned the soft shower floor to my husband which he noticed too. . He now has a new "honey please do." I also found the same issue with the bathroom foor.

We bought ours used - 2015 27 dsrl. After leaving it plugged in with slides out in the backyard during a very rainy month, we had no issues. My guess is the previous owner fixed all the warranty items. We are two hours from the dealer so we did not want to haul it for warranty work.

Owning an rv of any kind, from any manufacturer, will always have "issues". They can be blamed on "poor quality" or not but they will always be there...better get used to it .

Amen. I was once told, expect for something each trip to go wrong and you will not be disappointed.

And....we get what we pay for. If we wanted a top end trailer, we would have had to pay at least 2X the price. Our trailer is a good value for the $$. ��

As far as I know the warranty on a Jayco is not transferable from the first owner.

You are correct. It is not transferable. We were buying new but the dealer got this unit the same day on a trade. The price difference was too good to turn down. It was like new. We knew what to look for because of prior RV's. We checked every inch of flooring, windows, appliances etc. (didn't check the shower floor). So far no issues. We had a little trim in the bedroom that was loose. We did replace the tires with new 14" load D. They had very little wear but my husband wanted these tires.

Great. Some buy a new to them rig and think that because it's less than 2 years old that the warranty is still in effect.
