My wife and I did extensive research (2 years) before we decided on Jayco. Several things appealed to us on the Jayco brand that others didn't. I liked the way the windows were installed on the Jayco as opposed to Forest River or Keystone products. A true frame under the unit was a huge plus. Having a truly walkable roof was another big seller. Yeah, others claim it too but their roofs aren't manufactured as well as the Jayco. Insulation was a big thing with us as well. When I first opened the door to our Eagle, I noticed it's heft and thickness. Didn't see them on comparable brands. Similar but not exact. The solidity of the slide walls to me is incomparable in the industry. The Glacier Pkg is a huge plus in my opinion. Regardless if you plan on utilizing it, it's nice to know you can. Above all, the floorplan had to be THE ONE. This 328 fit the bill perfect. Yeah I could've went smaller but, ya know, I like this beast.

Have fun, be picky and ask questions till you're blue in the face!

Good Luck!

Any advice, recommendations or suggestions on both the pros/cons with Jayco are greatly appreciated.

So why are you 'so disapponted'? Had it less than a month?

No manufacturer builds units without faults but if we were to ever upgrade it would be another Jayco.

Welcome to the forum, but sorry to hear that you are disappointed.

Jayco has a 2 year warranty. Don't just complain for the next 23 months, take it back to the dealer.

Please help others reading posts on this forum by being specific about WHY you are disappointed.

We love our Jayco

We love our 2015 Eagle 30RKDS! After extensive research, we narrowed our search to the Cougar and the Jayco (both had the rear kitchen/front bedroom configuration we wanted). After comparing the fit, finish and price we chose Jayco and have been so pleased! The customer service has been fantastic and the trailer is solid, sturdy and beautiful.

I like Jayco, and have had great service, fixed little things that in my opinion, I should pay for. I think one additional thing you should strongly consider is the dealer you are working with. Some dealers are fabulous, they bend over backwards to help and ensure you are not inconvenience, others seam like they just want your initial sale and just do not care or have the knowledge to properly fix anything on a timely schedule. Some dealers do not want to deal with any unit that that was not purchased from them.

Point being, research your local dealership.

We have gotten two different Jayco trailers from our dealer, which is small and family owned. Very happy with trailers and the dealer.

Dealers are not required to do warrantee work on trailers not purchase from them.
Get a quote from RV Direct and then go negotiate with a dealer that you like. You will pay a little more but it will be worth while to have the service of a trusted dealer.

We are on our second Jayco and both of them have been great campers! I love the two year warranty which gives you some peace of mind and I feel they are built a bit nicer than many other brands. It also helps that our dealer is awesome to deal with and they treat you like family.

I have a Jayco Eagle and after shopping other makers the Eagles finishing was beyond everything else in the same price range. You find the same appliances from manufacture xxx in all the TT's so fit and finish separates. Love my Eagle.
