What made you pick the Jayco aver the "other" brands?

So we traded in pur Shasta Revere 21FBS after less than 1 year od ownership. This was a conventional TT and had nothing wrong with it other than we didn't like the U shaped dinette in the slideout and found it 2 feet too small (twofootitis)
This would have been a good tt for weekends but we travel mostly between 5 to 14 night at the time so, too small.
Our dealership sells Jayco and Forest River (Shasta), Everlite, and other brands but talked us into the Jayco for quality.
How did you pick the Jayco over others?
What sets Jayco apart?

Quality is good. All trailers will have some issues though.

A big thing for me was the two year warranty, compared to one for most others.

I have contacted Jayco a few times and they were good. Last week I had a problem with the tv hookup and they emailed me the schematic within a few hours.

I view Jayco overall as a good value for the price - also I believe the array of appliances installed are of good quality compared to other possibly "better" trailers that stumble on some of the appliance selections.

We thought we were getting a quality unit. Saddly that hasn't been the case for us. Our old Keystone Montana is looking better all the time.

We have been looking for 3+ years for a trailer we both could agree on, which was not an easy task. I insist on quality for the dollar. If it is cheap, I can accept a lower quality. All the comparable trailers had about the same cost, so I expect a comparable quality, but that was not what I found. Most of the trailers had lower quality materials. We went to the camping show this past winter first place we went was to the Jayco section, to get our base line. Then wandered about, the main selling point was all the competitor’s foam mattresses were extremely thin and uncomfortable to lay on. In the hybrids you sunk right into the joint for the bunk ends, and that would NOT be acceptable at all. In the Jayco you NEVER notice the joint for the bunk ends.

The cabinets in the 2012 Shasta Revere were excellent. The U dinette was poorly designed and uncomfortable and had cheap fabric. Love the furniture in the JYco, tavle is much more stable, dinette seats and couch very comfortable and good fabrics

I like the 2 year warranty and customer service. On my first pop-up, which was also a jayco I had a problem at 2 years 6 months and Jayco still covered the repair cost which was about $600 . That made me loyal from that point. They stand behind there product. Lot of the problems I see these days are the name brand appliances are not the best quality. On our pop-up the furnace and the converter both went.

Still family owned and in business for over 40 years. Quality, warranty and willingness to talk to the consumer. As was said all RV's have their share of problems, but JAYCO has been known to go the extra mile to get them resolved even after the warranty is up.
