Personally love our 365BHS, but think their new 375 has just about the best floor plan I've seen. Very family friendly, but has a living room and kitchen setup that's very adult friendly. Hoping we can work out the finances because we'll be ordering us a new 375 very soon.

2013 Jayco 184 BH Jay Flight improvements needed:
1. Install electric outlet below radio, adjacent TV antennae receptacle instead of in the bunk area where it is factory located. This is an easy, cheap fix and a much more usable location.
2. Upgrade shower heads in outside and inside shower. The cheap plastic ones get brittle and crack within a couple of months at the threaded coupling. Especially the one outside due to heat and UV, in spite of the plastic locking cover.
3. Upgrade the kitchen sink faucet. The one installed weeps at the counter gasket (only when sink faucet is turned on and water running), causing water to pool behind the stove top. Being that there's a GFI electrical outlet on the wall behind the sink, pooling water is bad for items you may be charging such as cell phones, cameras, etc. (Yes, an almost new, high quality water pressure reducer is always utilized upstream of the water hook-up)

Jayco should replace the dark front cap on the 2013 - Eagle 284 BHS. While camping the surface temperature of the dark cap has reached 184 degrees and the inside of the cabinets on the backside of the cap reaches 134 degrees. The bad part is that the heat inside the cabinets radiates into the TT making it a lot warmer. In the late afternoon, the AC has to come on. This is my only MAJOR complaint. We try to pick sites that face north, but that does not always work out.

In the late aftrnoon, after the sun heats up the cap, the AC runs constantly. We use a solar reflective blanket over the cap which helps when we are parked facing the sun. Love the Eagle, except for the cap.

Light switch in bedroom would be nice and I miss the nightstands on either side of the bed we had in the Jay Flight.

Better foam in seat cushions and matress would be a BIG improvement.

1997 262FK Eagle
We looked for a long time for a trailer and ended up special ordering this one. The garden tub option gave us a great sized tub/shower and room for the stool. It has plenty of closet and storage space. Not one glitch with the wiring. Haven't changed out one light bulb. Plenty of well positioned outlets so nothing to complain about. Not much but there are two things. We ordered the metal venetian blinds and I've replaced 20 or more of the little plastic clips that hold them in place for transport. The last and most important to me is the tires. I fought a sway issue from day one never expecting it to be the tires but after the second failure and a new set of E rated tires, the issue disappeared. Jayco shouldn't be willing to sully their reputation by saving $10 a tire. If I were them, I'd consider it money well spent.

I would also like to add that they should have ditched the 13" wheel in favor of a 14". Makes locating a replacement D rated tire out away from home a lot easier.
