As long as Jayco maintains their commitment to quality and customer service, it can be a good thing. I think that some manufacturers, like Thor, are simply too big to understand the needs of RV'ers.

Thor may be the biggest as they own Keystone, Dutchman, Airstream, etc. I looked at a few Open Range travel trailers and they seem top notch with a price to go along.

This seems strange to me. Wasn't Open Range a creation of KZ?

Or is that something else the salesman at the KZ dealership lied to me about?

Not so.. Randy Grabber and his wife started Open Range!! Don't know if they had outside investors or not. But I don't think KZ was part of the equation..

There was some KZ support early on, I looked at a Open Range a few years ago and the Plastic Fenders had KZ labels in the inside of them.

Not sure why they would have KZ labels on them, as I remember I saw some other parts with KZ labels on them, just do not remember what.

Can't remember Rob??

Is it time to pull the pin and fully retire and join us for no work travel?

Open Range puts out a quality product. If someone is going to inquire them, let it be Jayco. Once Thor gets a product, it goes down the tubes.
