How did the price of the Open Range compare to the Jayco you were looking at?
It's hard to compare pricing on the two. The quote on the Jayco Eagle was $32,000 but it was loaded with all the goodies. Quoted price on the Open Range Journeyer was $36,900....
Open Range has quite a few things that Jayco doesn't offer. Here's just a few:
2nd Air Conditioner connects into existing ceiling duct work.
100" wide and 145 inches tall
Fantastic fan in kitchen
Max air vent cover
10 gallon hot water tank
10 year warranty on cabinets(cabinets have hidden hinges)
Corian counter tops
LED ceiling lights
Insulated slide out floors
Power stabilizefrs with lock arm bars
Corian Island on castors
Stainless steel dual sinks
Washyer/dryer prep with cabinet in bathroom
16 inch aluminum wheels
Window treatments are curtains with shades (not wooden boxed)
Composite wall aluminum frame construction
Slide out pantry
And they have a nice exterior console for water hook ups- flushing system- antenna connections- light ect... with a door so that all these connections aren't just going into the side of the trailer.
The front stying makes the trailer look somewhat like a 5th wheeler.
Open Range is making a production run of the JT337RLS Trailer on Jan 8th and we are driving down to see them plus a plant tour.
Finally if Jayco had made an Eagle with a regular queen size slide out bedroom (3 slides total) we would have jumped on it.
