We ordered our X23B and supposedly it was one of the last ones Jayco built before their summer shut-down. But so far we have not had any problems with it.

We bought ours of the lot, (RV Direct / Orlando FL) and have not had any significant issues.
As said in a earlier post our Pinnacle is 40 Ft Long and loaded with gadgets, electronics and goodies.
No major system failures or problems after a year and a half of fulltime living in it.

I think the dealer can service as a second layer of quality control IF they are doing the job you are paying them to do. A good dealer will do a thorough inspection of the RV construction and systems prior to delivery to a customer.

We have had our Jayflight 22FB for over a year now. We bought it straight off the lot and our dealer did a very thorough inspection, and gave us a lengthy walk-through. We have not had any significant issues and feel that we have a great camper. I hope that all who are experiencing problems get them resolved soon, and hopefully through your experience quality control will be enhanced.

I can dispel the idea of better build quality if it's a special build. We have a 2013 Eagle 284BHS we special ordered back in in Feb/Mar. We brought it home on 5/20. Since then, I have found a litany of mostly little things such as screws that were installed so crookedly I question if the installers just didn't give a damn. A couple other issues were more serious.

The biggest issue to date has been one with the water heater which I had to return to the dealer to get fixed. On our last camping trip, the water stopped functioning on gas.
After some extensive trouble shooting, the dealer eventually found that the water heater was sitting on top of its own gas hose, in effect pinching it off and cutting off its own supply of gas.

The dealer was great in doing what they could to fix it with what they had on hand.

But it still cost me 18 gallons of diesel fuel at $3.89 a gallon, about 175 miles wear & tear on my truck and 8 hours of my time on my day off. I was told that this would be a warranty issue and I wouldn't be able to get any reparation from Jayco. IMO this is clearly an issue of faulty workmanship vs a warranty of a component or labor failure. I might end up contacting Jayco directly to seek reimbursement of my expenses.

We ordered our 27DSRL and have had no trouble with it. The ladder was left off and an electric awning was put on it that we didn't order. We have a great dealer who obtained a ladder from Jayco and put it on. Apparently the work order was lost sometime during its assembly. Our unit was subject to the Dometic awning recall, and the dealer did not receive notification, which he did receive on another unit he sold. This work has been assigned to a different (non Jayco repair facility) which has yet to make the repair. I'm not concerned because I pull the fuse while traveling.

Our previous 26BH was purchased when it was a year old and was in perfect condition. I had to replace the microwave because the warantee does not pass on from the original owner. Got one from CW and did it myself.

I`m thinking the crew that builds it has no idea and cares little if it is customer ordered or not......Could be wrong.

My first RV was a 22' Eagle TT. I think that was back in 2002. I have since owned a Carriage, Hitchhiker, and Heartland products. The only one I did not have a problem with was the Jayco Eagle. They were also a little more simpler back then.
