We are new owners of a 2012 Jayco Sport 8. The primary reason we chose the 8 was first for our tow vehicle (2010 Jeep Compass) and secondly for the room that is available in our yard/driveway to park it.
Once we got it home, I was slightly disappointed in the amount of storage. I guess that I had initially planned to pack more in it than needed. After camping out last weekend, I found that we had adequate storage. It thunderstormed both evenings/nights that we camped, so no campfire. Instead we played cards and watched dvd's. We found that it had more than enough room for the two of us.
It did get cool in the evening, and the propane heater worked very well. It heated up very quickly, and we found that we needed to turn the temperature control during the night. We are very pleased with our purchase.
We looked at all makes of used before purchasing new. We chose Jayco because of the price (there was a good sale), and that our dealer sells only new Jayco's. After researching Jayco, we were pleased to learn that they have the best resale value.
