Anything else in the price range seemed to be missing something. We understand trying to shoehorn sleeping, eating, cooking and entertaining into a confined space means compromise but Jayco seems to do a pretty good job of making it work which means great value for the money.
We're lucky to have a Jayco dealer near our house and they've been great to deal with - we've bought 3 over the years. In looking for our current rig, we visited other Jayco dealers to see floorplans not on the local lot. We came away thinking most of the Guys with Jayco as a primary line are a cut above other dealers.
We had to take a trailer back to Jayco to repair some owner induced damage and it was like dealing with a neighbor you liked. They sympathized with and laughed at what we screwed up.
There are a lot of changes at Jayco in product and leadership. Maintaining quality and a family culture could be difficult as they control costs to stay ahead of the conglomerates. I'm rooting for them
