How many are fulltimiing on their Jayco, would you buy a Jayco for fulltime again?

How many of you out there are fulltiming in your Jayco?

What type / model Jayco are you fulltiming in?

Would you purchase a Jayco RV again for fulltime use?

Not a fulltimer yet but sure would love to be. How about you Rob, are you pleased with your unit for fulltime use? What is a typical year for you folks as far as where you spend your time/ where you travel?

started full timing in out 2003 Designer it was working fine, but decided after10.5 years It was time for a new one. In 03 top of the line was the Designer Legacy. Wanted a new Pinnacle, but liked the floor plan of the Eagle Premier, same quality as the Designer! Been happy with both. Spent 1300 nights in the old one. Not all full timing though!

We have been very pleased with our 5er for Fulltime use.

We spend most of our time in the Southeast but we travel up the East Coast from Key West to NY / NJ and across the Gulf Coast from Florida to Texas.

Typically travel about 8,000 to 10,000 miles per year, usually move every two weeks or so.

We have been in our 32bhds for 15 months and have no regrets although it's getting down to 6* in NC tomorrow night 5 days before we head to Phoenix.

wow! That sounds awesome. I am VERY envious. I imagine it costs little more too move so often as you wouldnt get the best rates with the short stay. But must be nice to always change up the scenery and location.

Fulltiming since May, 1988. Have a 2014 Jayco Seneca 37FS, and when the time comes, will definitely buy another Jayco, probably another Seneca. I have had absolutely no problems with this rig, maybe because I believe in maintenance. Mileage is about what I expected, torque is unbelievable. Livability is terrific.

Full timing since May 2012. Spend winters in Fl and TX and summers near Ottawa.

We cover about 6-7,000 miles a year. We stay at least 1-2 months in the same place. Use Walmarts when in transit.

Very happy with the Greyhawk. A couple of small issues which were fixed quickly under warranty.

I actually 3/4 time. Legally cannot come to the USA if I am full timing.. they worry more about me being here than they do Mexicans. I have a TT and would not change that. Yes I would buy another Jayco in a heartbeat.. but probably not from the same dealer.
