The responsibility of safe operation of the vehicle lies with the driver.
I'm not sure what you expect Jayco to say about the situation.
I disagree with your comments, as you're missing the point. The distance from the pivot point on the trailer to the front of the cab should be such that any tow vehicle on the market can achieve a 90 degree angle to the trailer. This is controlled by the distance from the the trailer pivot point to the front of the trailer cap. That engineering detail is the responsibility of the trailer designer: Jayco.
That being said, there could be several reasons for the interference, which may not be design related, and instead production related.
While I appreciate the effort to help find the answer, you really need to understand the full scope of the problem to troubleshoot it. And the initial question can only be answered with others with the same trailer, as all of the trailers are designed with a different front end.
Jayco's engineering team is looking into the issue now, so I can report back their findings soon.
As a side note, the cap on the 2017 is different than the 2016, and looks to be back further.
