We have a 195rb, absolutely love it, it is the perfect size for the DW and me, tows great and didn't cost an arm and a leg, just wish the black water tank was a little bigger. just wondering what other owners think of theirs

We have a 2015 195RB Baja and it's perfect for the two of us as well. Our combo has towed very well - almost 4000 miles this last season and have about 6000 miles planned for the upcoming season. We are able to store it around back at the house which is a big plus. It's a great little camper and we are extremely happy with it.

It is a great camper and like you we poured a pad behind the house so we can keep her close.

Our 195 is our second camper. We had the first one for 28 years. We are delighted with our new Jayco. All the amenities just like home.

We have a permanent campsite with an outhouse, so the black tank size is of no concern.

Not yet. We ordered it in October. Not too many shipments come this far east so we have had to wait. We wanted to take it to Florida in ten days but its not really essential as most of the Florida trip will be backcountry canoeing in a tent.
We just were hoping it would come for a shakedown cruise before we head to Nevada in April.
Oh well the dealer can shovel the snow around it if it comes before we get back from Florida.

Are you taking it to Nevada? We took ours to southern Utah last September (Kanab). That was about 2400 miles round trip and it did great. We are taking it for a week in southeastern Nevada early April and back to Kanab again in September.

We added a second battery for the upcoming season and we've also picked up a 32-gallon Barker 4-wheel tote for the gray water tank. If we only use the black tank overnight we've found we can go several days before needing to dump. With the 32-gallon Barker we can empty the gray tank twice before heading over to a dump station with the tote.

Well Nevada Yeah.. But that will be totalling some 6-8,000 miles for its first trip. It could come this week. So we get to outfit it in the snow and below freezing.. We live close to Auburn.
Maine.

We really like ours farthest from home has only been 300 miles to south east West Virginia. Perfect size for the 2 of us and yes the tanks could be bigger but can't have everything
