We purchased our Jayco last August its a 2009 Jayflight 26bhs G2 and we absolutely love it. We had looked at trailer well over two years. I camped as a kid in a trailer. I did a lot or research online talking to other owners and salesman also went to many many rv shows. At one point I had narrowed my search down to the Jayco or Crossroads Sunset Trails. Both have a two year warranty and real wood on roof and floor decking. The problem for me was I wanted a bunkhouse under 30 feet and the crossroads were longer plus the two dealers in my area did not have any models at the dealership and did not seem interested in negotiating a deal. At this point I could not find a model under 30 feet with bunks so I was considering a different floor plan when I stumbled across a Jayco 26 bhs and it was 28 ft 11 inches. I then went back and compared it to many other models similar, one was a puma it had no storage for kids clothes and no draw in bathroom for essentials, jayco does, I looked at a dutchman it had no storage for cutlery one silly draw that was short and angled inside, not even long enough for knives. The Jayco had a much more upgraded look inside as well and came standard with a lot more options that were extra's on other trailers. In my opinion take your time do your homework and really examine where you going to put things when your looking at trailers.

Just found this thread. My wife and I are debating between a Jayco HT and a Crossroads Cruiser Aire. I appreciated having all this input from you Jayco owners. My main concern about the Jayco is that I have heard that it is sometimes difficult to get the HT's to ride level when hooked up to a newer 3/4 4wd...and that even after flipping the axles. We are taking the TV to the dealership this weekend to see. They sell Jayco and Cruiser Aire's. All things being equal, I think we will go with the Jayco.
Thanks again.

We bought our 2015 Greyhawk 29mv for a few reasons.
1. Floorplan
2. Quality of construction
3. Location of dealer
4. Interior detail
5. Price

We had a 2003 gulfstream mako bunkhouse we bought new when the kids were young ... It slept 8 and filled the purpose we needed it for then....Last year when we were at the camper show in fort wayne in we were looking just to see if there were any there that fit the bill of things we had decided we wanted in our next camper. We had made it about 90 percent through the show and had walked in and right back out of most of the campers. Then we walked into the Jayco 338 rets and I was like wow this thing has it all. The main thing we wanted was rear living, a bedroom slide with more room in the bedroom to change and a lot more closet space to hang clothes. This unit met all those needs and more. The finishes inside looked quality. It had solid surface counter tops. The plugs inside were all in about the right places. Cabinet space was more than enough. Window treatments were nice. Plank linoleum flooring looked rich. Outside gelcoat was slick and shiny. I wasn't sure about things like the power awning and power stabilizer jacks but I knew I wanted the power tongue jack for sure. The awning is such a great help I wouldn't know what to do without it now lol. One thing I felt like we lost was basement storage but we have been able to live without it. The one thing that I have seen on some for sale on e bay that I wish Jayco would incorporate is some sort of side table for the couch and chairs in the living room and beside the head of the bed. We bought a ottoman from meijers for like 40.00 to put in front of our couch to put stuff on and for storage it works great. I believe I will be building little side tables for the bed that slide between the mattress and wall to hold them in place so we have a place to put our drinks at night and maybe store our books. None of the new trailers out there are perfect but I think Jayco does a great job for the money and quality overall.

In no particular order:
The two-year warranty
Factory installed J-Ride & Bigfoot levelers
Interior style
Local Jayco dealer's good reputation
Jayco's reputation for helping even after the warranty ends

The construction aspect sold me on the Jayco. Also the quality cabinetry materials used, even in their lower priced units. But overall Jayco can do better with their quality assurance. Giving a 2 year warranty is another plus point.
Jayco should finish their product at the Jayco production plant not at the customer or dealers site.

We bought ours because:

It's the only brand of trailer that had the most of the components I liked. Probably the least of most people's considerations. After owning nearly every brand of component, we know what stove, AC, furnace, water heater, converter etc etc that we like. Jayco had Coleman AC, Atwood water heater, Atwood furnace, Atwood stove, Progressive Industries Converter / power center and on the list goes.

Throw in the fact that they are still "Jayco", not Jayco, by X, by Y, by Z (Think Thor), and that helps in my book. Construction is on par for the price. It was the best bank for the buck.

I agree with many of the previous comments. My favorite feature of my little trailer is the bathtub/shower feature. I didn't see this in other brands.

Real nice floor plan with King size bed option in a really nice looking tongue pull at a price with trade in that was better than I could do anywhere else.
