We love our 2011 31RKS, the 2 year warranty and the appliances as well as the quality of the trailerwere the reason we traded. Those 84 gallon fresh water tanks and a stand up shower and a never ending 6 gallon hot water heater keeps me away from the bath houses. Compared to our former Cougar 26FBS, I am partial to our Jayco.

looks and floor plan made me choose our x23j. Glad we did because we love it!

The 23B had the best floorplan for my family. The fact that it was under 10' tall was the other factor. My shop has a 10' door and I was not going to park the trailer outdoors unless I was camping in it. I also bought it used for less than book value...that helped too.

We liked the floor plan, they gave us more than we thought we would get on our trade in and we really liked the sales people there. They seemed like they really cared, it was weird.

We are on our fourth Jayco product. Pricing, overall quality, features, and the two year warranty are good selling points. However, as important (if not more) is the dealership. Our dealer is professional, and treats each customer with honesty and forthrightness. And their service department is second to none. We just had our Pinnacle in for some warranty work and had it back three days later! So, combine a good product with a good dealership- priceless!

Being new to RVing we looked for something used that would haul our ATVs, was in good shape and was at a price where we believed we could get out of it without a big loss after we had learned a few things, including what we would want to live with for a few years. It really didn't take long to find a rig, and a couple seasons later we sold it for the same price we bought it at, giving up a few add-ons.

Having a list of "must haves" and "would like to haves" in hand, we found Jayco fit most of our demands. The mfr. had a good reputation for handling problems (which has proven true), most owners were happy with the product, it had the floorplan DW most wanted, and it fell in a range of prices we could afford. The 2-year warranty, solid surface countertops, porcelain toilet and good appliances were a bonus.

We couldn't get a decent discount within a couple hundred miles of home and had to travel a bit to find a dealer that also fit our wants, but we found one and that worked out great too.

There were other factors, such as sales talk about Amish workers, which is basically bogus, but they were minor. And a year and a half and 90 nights later, we're happy with the choice and are looking forward to well over a hundred nights in 2013, as we're going south for nearly four months. It will be interesting to see just how small that booger starts to get after a few months!

We chose our Jayco for many of the same reasons others did. Two year warranty is a huge plus. The floorplan is good, and I'm glad that for 2013 Jayco added a black tank flush on our 24FBS. Can't understand why they don't all come with such a feature. Also, I like the way the tongue is run through the front of the frame as opposed to under it. Gives more clearance and seems to be a stronger setup with more welded surface. First thing I'm going to do is change the speakers though. I don't consider myself an audiophile by any means, but I couldn't believe how "small" the interior speakers sounded when we tried them out. As for the outside speakers, we'll wait and see. My Milwaukee jobsite radio sounds worlds better than what Jayco installed, so I don't know if we'll use the outside speakers much, or just take the Milwaukee out with us. . . .

As far as the dealer, it's been "meh" so far. We're waiting for it to be delivered, but the salesman called us last week to see if we had gotten it yet. We told him we're still waiting for it. So it would seem that we now need to keep on them regarding delivery dates, etc. The parts guy that I've spoken with about hitches, etc has been top notch though. Cautiously optimistic is the best way to describe it.
