My last RV was a NEW Keystone... I was driving down the highway and THE WALL FELL OFF. I had bought the RV new and took good care of it... When we looked they had used thin little sheet metal screws to hold the wall to the floor... Never again will I buy a KEYSTONE.

At this point I don't even think it's an issue anymore. We haven't even seen the Keystone but our local Jayco dealer keeps sweetening the deal. They're knocking another $500 off and throwing in two MaxxAir covers.

We attended the Dayton RV show this year and there were a couple Keystone's. I thought the interior was nice, but that is all I can really say. I know, after seeing countless brands of TT's, I left there still feeling I made the right decision in our Jayco. We've had alot of people approach us at CG's and comment on how nice it is and really love the outdoor kitchen.

I have owned 2 Keystone 5th wheels and had problem with both of them. Traded the 1st on cause of troubles and got another one. DUH. It had just as many problems and the dealer took care of the side wall rottened out from a leak that had been fixed before. Dealer stood the cost of everything as said Keystone wouldn't. So nothing bad on my dealer. So I moved on. Hope this helps. My new Jayco is great so far.

My husband and I will be going to our first RV show next weekend, but I've been doing a lot of online research and we talk to anyone we can catch. So far we're really liking Jayco and have a few we will really being checking out at the show and the dealers. I've really appreciated this discussion on Keystones vs. Jaycos (esp. the post about the wall falling off while going down the road ). Thanks to everyone for their insights. What my husband really likes is that the cabinets in Jaycos are apparently built by Amish craftsmen.

Keystone Vs. Jayco

We bought a 28u in 2011. Has pretty much what you were looking for and like you my wife and I went to several RV shows over a few years and decided on this one. We haven't had any leaks but we needed the awning arm replaced and the slide out motors replaced. I don't blame Jayco for these issues as they were made by another company. Jayco has taken care of these problems for us. We do however love our trailer. If I had any reservations I would have insisted on different tires than the GY
China tires. They have not been an issue as of yet but don't have the confidence in them as I would with Kuhmos or an American made tire.

This is my first Jayco. The workmanship is way better IMO. I have had Keystone 2 of them and had problems with both of them and the dealer stood the waranty as they said Keystone would not. Owned Crossroads and first one was good the second one was a Lemon. Was at the dealer and the factory longer than I had it. So far so good will let you know when we start using it. The fit and finish is so much better.

On other forums I've heard some problems floating around about delamination issues with Keystone. I still like the idea of a 2 year bumper to bumper Jayco warranty.

Have you looked at perhaps a slightly used model? The TT in my sig sounds just like what your looking for.
