My family had Jayco pop tent trailers growing up, so it was the first and really only company I was interested in. That and the plywood over OSB construction and 90 Gal fresh water tank... Sold!

Like most we looked at them all
Took almost 18 months of research and shopping

1. Value for dollar--great price on quality
2. 2 year warrantee
3. BBB report on Jayco vs others
4. Family owned
5. The dealership -- no pressure sale, knowledgeable on products, ease to work with
6. This web site
7. BBB report on the dealer

Just my .02

I would have to say quality. The first one we bought was solid and that is why we are planning on getting another one.

The quality and the warranty - we looked at several different brands, but nothing came close to the quality of the Jayco. The dealership was also great in that there was absolutely no pressure and they helped guide us to the unit that was right for us.

We have owned several popups. The 1980 Jayco Cardinal 8 was the best. We bought it used when we first started camping again. Replaced the canvas. When we noticed roof sag, Jayco built a roof for it and priced very reasonable. We has few good years in that popup, sold it to the next family. We bought a Rockwood by ForestRiver with an extended warranty. Well popup developed week corners in the floor. Oh that is not covered. Moved on to Fleetwood Coleman. It is just the wife and I now, we decided it was time for a TT we looked at several brands but the quality of the Jayco popup kept coming back, we narrowed it down to StarCraft and Jayco, Jayco won due to the dealer. We bought a 2014 248FBS

When I started looking 2 years ago, Jayco's didn't even cross my mind. I had my heart set on another brand. While I was checking it out at the dealer, I noticed that one of the shades was hung crooked. Sure enough, all the shades were hung crooked, there were ripples in the siding (both interior & exterior), and the storage compartment doors were twisted. I decided to Google _______ travel trailer complaints, and boy did I find a ton of them. Mostly ignored by the manufacturer until the units were out of warranty. I did the same for every major brand with similar results . . . until I Googled Jayco. (That's actually how I discovered this forum.) The few complaints I found were all handled by Jayco in a timely manner - often even after the warranty had expired. I figured a company has to be pretty confident in its products to offer a 2-year warranty, and pretty appreciative of its customers to treat them so well. That's when I started looking at Jayco products, and discovered how really reasonably priced they are for everything you get. I plan to start full-timing next winter, and that's why I bought my Eagle!

I did lots of research and compared many different brands. Was sold on Jayco's quality of materials, fit and finish and lastly their 2 year warranty!
Looking forward to my first year as a TT owner.
