here are a few things i looked at when shopping for my 1st and up to now my 3rd jayco-cabinets-hard wood centers,window treatments- day-night shades vs mini blinds, hard valances vs curtains , ventilation-bath fan 4" fan in a 12" opening? , water heater 5,6,10 gal?,fridge freezer size.drawer rollers steel or plastic?
to me at this price point nothing comes close to the quality of materials in a jayco! imo. not saying there perfect or they dont have some quality issues but they use good stuff. I think thats where the weight comes in. the rest is personal preference.
