Jayco Dealer Recommendation - NY, NJ, CT Area

Can anyone provide a recommendation for a Jayco dealer in the NY, NJ, CT area? I'm not looking so much for the lowest price but someone that has a good reputation for honesty, is knowledgeable about the product and provides excellent customer service.

Chime in please if you've had a good experience with a dealer in this area.

I can't recomend one in those states but I just bought a trailer from City Auto RV in Newport, NH and they have been great to deal with so far.

We bought ours at Campers Barn in kingston NY..right off the thruway, easy to get to. I was very pleased with the purchase price as well as the trade offer. I really found everyone quite helpful and friendly. Though I have never needed service, I'm hoping the service is as good as the sales....

ACA6151 and JaycoJoe, Kingston, NY and Robbinsville, NJ are only a couple hours drive from me so I will have to check them out.

Bender031177, while NH isn't just down the road it's one of my favorite places. I spent a week traveling with my wife throught the White Mountains and Lakes regions. Beautiful country and our kind of place, except in the winter .

I've got a Jayco dealer about a half hour from me (W.E.S. Trailer Sales) but couldn't find any reviews on them. At some point I'll take a ride out to visit with them but knowing where a few other dealers are located, ones that come with a good recommendatiion, gives me some options if the closest guy doesn't work out.

We were at Kadco a few months ago and have bought from them before, great family owned dealer, but not much in inventory last time we were there. You might want to check out Whitehorse RV in Williamstown, NJ (South Jersey) about an hour down further from Kadco if you're looking for more inventory. Bought our Eagle Superlite 314 BDS from Al there, great experience, bigger dealer than Kadco. We originally bought our Jayco 1207 PUP from Kadco and another great experience.

www.whitehorserv.com is the site.

Good luck!

I took a trip out to W.E.S. Trailer Sales in Wading River (about 30 miles from me). They have about 30 ~ 40 units of various sizes on the lot. I meet a salesperson that gave me a brief walk around/through a Jayco Swift 184BH they had on the lot. He answered a few questions, we discussed tow requirements, registration and insurance cost, training they provide to first time owners, he gave me a brochure, his business cared and then left me alone to explore the unit. No high powered sales pitch and when I was done we talk rv parks, camping and motorcycles.

I was very pleased with my first contact.

I got mine at Campers Barn in Kingston NY also. Only had one issue when my house battery went dead after about 3 months. Brought it back and they swapped it out no problem.

2edgesworld. We made the journey to Albany RV (RVdirect). You can get an online quote built to your specs in minutes for comparison shopping and some leverage in your deal. We wound up buying from them and the experience was pleasant.

I have not required factory service so I cannot say what the experience would be if I do from any dealer. Worst cast is that I exercise my ext warranty for the $100.00 ded. and let them come to me if it's something I can't handle.

Good luck in your search.
