I think to begin to understand not only the initial quality as far as long term one has to understand the manufacturing industry as a whole. When visiting Jaycos plant I was simply amazed at what they had to get accomplished in a matter of minutes to produce the amount of units they make each day. At one station they had a bare frame. Within 20 minutes we were there they had built the floor and installed tanks underneath.. Put the flooring on and cut the holes for the floor vents. At another station they installed all the roofing sheets in a matter of minutes and screwed them down and ground off the seams. The guy wiring the convertor had all of a few minutes to hook all the wiring to the back of it and do a check on it. I work at the Gm truck plant in Fort Wayne Indiana and we have 45 seconds at each station to get our work done and send it on to the next station. Imaging having to install 2 rear shocks, tighten 2 e brake brackets, put the fuel tank bracket clips on and on the heavy duty trucks install a vapor recovery tank in 45 seconds. It took me longer to type it than what I have to do the job.

I am overall happy with my unit and although I have had some issues with it and still have Jayco slated to do some warranty work this fall I have to say for as quickly as they are built I would have expected worse. We would all build one differently if we had the opportunity but the time it would take to do it our way the campers would cost 500,000 dollars a piece. I will settle for the few issues I have any day and put that savings in my pocket.

After owning three Arctic Foxes, over many years, few new rv's stack up. So far I am happy with my Jayco, for the money it meets my needs.

The big issue for us is - forward floor was rotted. Discovered problem after 5 years. AND we live in Phoenix.

Just came off 2-year warranty in April. No major things, other than brakes on one wheel, which were covered by Dexter.

Definitely a "9".

Into our fifth season with our 2013 26 RLS. There were a few items that needed attention early on: two minor water leaks where connectors needed tightening and sealent tape need to be replaced on slide. Other than that...knock on wood...this trailer has been a champ.

Just coming up on the 2 years date with our PUP.....so far have had to have the dealer address the door opening gap (not plumb) and the step/hatch wouldn't stay secured, and the control board on the heater had to be replaced. Everything else seems to be working as it should. I had to rebuild the dining bench seats two months into our ownership....PUPs were designed for the occasional use. We were living in ours for 4 months while our home was being renovated and the bench seats became our living roost so to say. Beyond that, we're happy with it.

August 26, 2016 was the end of our two year warranty. I gave the Greyhawk an 8.

While it did have more problems that I anticipated (this is our first RV so we had no previous frame of reference), we fortunately did not encounter some of the really bad issues others have faced. No water leaks, delamination, electrical gremlins, cabinets falling off the wall or slide ripping the vinyl floor.

And the problems we did have were handled to our complete satisfaction by our dealer, Plemmons RV World in Raleigh. Jayco authorizing replacement of our Girard tankless water heater with a Suburban added a full point to our score!

A few months ago I had a pretty bad water leak from my pump, and since then I've been getting some pretty loud squeaks from the floor, depending on how my TT is leveled. Other than that, after 4 years of FT living in it, all is well. I think the dry heat in Arizona this winter will dry up the floor boards and relieve the floor noises.
