I tried

Well I've been looking for a new camper from NJ to SC. I've been to several shows and at least a dozen dealers. Kept looking for Jayco's and really wanted a White Hawk, but just couldn't swing a deal. Found a used Coachmen Santara 271BH in immaculate shape at a dealer in Raleigh. Wife and kid liked it. I could only find one thing I didn't like about it (no pass thru storage up front) but I couldn't walk away from the price. So, we are no longer Jayco owners. While loading all the stuff into it it Sunday, my boy said to me, "Dad, this is a nice camper, but its got a lot to live up to for us to have as much fun as we did in the Jayco. I'm sure gonna miss it." Says a lot for our little 165BH and the times we had using it! Time will tell. So, I might pop in from time to time, but I guess this is goodbye to the Jayco community. I learned a lot and everybody is always respectful.

This may be a "brand" specific forum but I think we all are here for one thing The love of camping and spending time with freinds and family. So Jayco or not you are still welcome here. Remember most of the questions and answers are not brand specific.
Good luck with your new camper.
