I've got a 2016 24 rbs that springs a water leak from a different spot everytime we take it out. Also the refrigerator and freezer are about useless. Other than that she's a peach. I have zero faith in the service dept at my dealer.

When I bought it there he said since I bought it there I wouldn't have to wait long for repairs, boy I wonder how long I would have had to wait if I bought it somewhere else.
The end trim pieces of my slide (looks like press wood) fell apart, pantry door was warped, carpet edging came off slide wasn't lined up properly, shower knob was striped, left wheel was throwing grease all over the wheel, just to name a few.







My next trailer will be a Forest River
I wouldn't say that too loud Might be posting the same issues or more on their forum, which I'm still on. Been there done that. In reality, they all pretty much suck. Just gotta pick the best bang for the buck at the time and be willing to fix the issues. I've got quite the stories on FR and Tiffin having had both. My 28BHBE has actually been one of the better ones of the 8 we have owned, but it didn't come without a few issues here and there. My thread http://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/f3...hbe-30052.html covers a few. Most of that though, is just getting things up to my standards. I've only had a few problem free rigs, and they weren't FR or Jayco. Matter a fact, they don't make them any more.

My last TT was a Forest River, and it was OK. I honestly believe the new White Hawk is a better-built trailer. I worked on the FR Surveyor a lot. I'll work on the White Hawk a lot. I hope to work on the White Hawk a lot................... less.

Have a 2016 Jayco 28 BHBE. My Coleman mach Air Conditioner went out after 12 times of using it, It had to be completely replaced. Compressor failed. Hope this isn't a sign of more to come.

Nah. Coleman is the more reliable unit, believe me. Ask me or any dealer how many late model dometics (the smaller units with square t-stat) have been constantly repaired or replaced. I have my own history with them on a few Riga and will not own a Dometic AC, at least now with the 3 wire T-stats and junk control box.

But that AC was manufactured for Coleman, and Jayco just purchased the best bang for the buck... for all of us.

It's not fair to ding Jayco for the failures of a supplier.

I don't agree, the whole idea behind brand reputation is that they take responsibility for the whole product. With that in mind, the Coleman units are relatively robust from my understanding but bound to have failures here and there...
