A couple of additional thoughts on this subject:
  1. Check the Sticky Polls on this forum regarding initial quality and quality after 2 years. Overall they look pretty good.
  2. Seems to me that in the manufacturing process there's something of a tradeoff between the fairly low prices we're willing to pay, and the cost of 100% quality control. Not sure we would all agree on where to strike that balance.

Most of the noise on the FB page seems to be coming from just a few people. Reading through the posts, Jayco has offered time and time again to bring their camper units in, and make them right. The posters on the other hand, act as if they are dealing with Wal Mart, wanting an even exchange, which is not such a simple task considering RV's are licensed through the DMV, just like a motor vehicle. Yes, it can be very frustrating, and, an inconvenience. We went through it with our previous pop up from another mfg.

We picked up our 321RSTS Fifth wheel last week. During the walkthrough we ran all the appliances, including both AC units and heater, checked every nook and cranny for defects in workmanship, and of course the outside as well. The only "flaw" we found was a loose piece of ceiling molding which was immediately repaired. Now granted...We haven't actually gone anywhere yet and we did not test any of the plumbing, but if the walkthrough is any indication, it looks like we're pretty good! (fingers, arms,legs crossed).

No matter if you buy a 15k of a 500,000k coach there will always be something that wasn't done right. Even if you buy a 5,000,000.00 house there will be something wrong. Jayco and the dealers will do everything in their power to fix it, unless the owner becomes a real pain in the rear to them. Treat the dealer with respect and you will get things done.

Its the same with any low production item that is complex, other than perhaps a Rolls Royce.

Its a trade off. I don't know that I could afford the Rolls Royce of RV's.

I am on the JOF and Jayco Travel Trailer Facebook group several times a day. I see many happy owners. While I keep ad eye on the problem posts I also keep up with the happy owners.
