A good dealer means a lot to me and "Hopes Camper Corner" in Monroe, Louisiana is a super place to buy in fact we have purchased several from them. There is no pressure, they are very knowledgeable, they have a good repair shop, most of all honest. But on the other hand before I put our TT in our shop I wash it ever time we come home and at least 4 times a year I get on top and scrub it. The fact that the Jayco's roof is so strong I don't feel like I will fall though when washing it. Other dealers told me do not get on top.

First had 1996 1406 tent trailer. Never a problem. Next we had a 2000 Qwest for 15 years. We did always maintain it - only trouble we had was stove did start leaking propane after 14 years! Every other system and seam and seal remained solid. (Traveled from Maine to Florida and Minnesota to Louisiana). Now have 2014 Swift 294 with good fit and finish and perfect floor plan. Only problem so far is - rather cheap shower head and faucet - cost to upgrade ~ $70.00. Would buy again tomorrow

Floor plan and quality. RV Consumer Group reviews and other reviews of other rigs convinced us that Jayco was the right way to go. Not perfect but lots of bang for the buck.

my 1993 eagle 10 held up very well I spent a total of $300 on a single repair not bad for being over 20 years old so when I bought my tt I was sold on another Jayco based on the quality of the eagle 10

We bought our 1st camper (1996 Jayco Eagle 302 FK) in 2007 from a older couple who had bought the unit new and had just gotten too old to enjoy it anymore. The TT was more than what my '04 Tahoe could handle, and didn't have bunks for our 3 young kids, so we sold it after only 6 months and 5-10 nights spent in it. Then in the summer of 2008 we bought a 2008 Grey Wolf 26 BH from an insurance auction. The TT had been in a tornado and had been laid on it's side, but other than some cosmetic damage, there was no structural damage or leaks. We never had any problems with our Grey Wolf in the 6 1/2 years we've camped in it (other than normal wear and tear) but it was lacking in so many little things. I truly felt like I had traded my Cadillac in for a Ford Focus. I wish I had $1 for every time I've said, "I miss my Jayco". We have finally outgrown our Grey Wolf, and my husband was adamant that our next camper be fiberglass. So we went to our local dealer to price a new Jayco Eagle. Their best price was $10k over our budget, and the White Hawk didn't have the floorplans we want (island kitchen with bunk house) so we found ourselves researching other brands. Nothing compared to the quality, warranty, or fit and finish of a Jayco. Luckily I found a dealership that was able to get me in the camper I want at a price within my budget, even though it is 8 hours away.
