Its what the dealer stocked that was willing to take our 1yo Forest river Hybrid as a trade as the FR dealer didn't return calls and we liked the space of the RLDS..

This was a big part of the 1st Jayco we owned...name recognition. I feel as if the other manufacturers hide behind other names.

2nd Jayco we bought was based upon the quality of the 1st one and that it had most of what we wnated and I could still tow it.

Because Jayco makes an awesome Super C (Seneca) motorhome and we got an awesome deal on a leftover 2014.

We went looking for a previously enjoyed TT seriously starting about a month ago. The first one we looked at was the Jayco 21FB we wound up buying.
It has the layout we want, plenty of storage for the gear and within the parameters of our TV. The dealer was very good, low pressure, excellent with every aspect of the sale including a comprehensive "this is how it all works", a new battery, full propane tanks and most important they made us a very good deal.
We looked at a lot of TTs including some new and very similarly sized/layout models but the Jayco was the best bang for the buck. Can't wait to get it out into the woods for some R&R.

2 year warranty

Most trailers we looked at all seemed to offer reasonably similar materials/floor plans/ etc.

We had good luck with our first Jayco. Figured they earned our business a second time.

We have our first Jayco and our first camper. We bought a 2015 27.5 HT RLST 5th wheel in September of this year and we both love it. I liked the idea of the 2 year warranty and the floor plan. We have had some problems with the Quality of the unit and for what we pay for them it should never have been shipped. My dealer is great and has bent over backwards and if not for them it would be back at Jayco. That said I would still buy another Jayco

We bought ours for three reasons: reputation for quality, warranty, and their standard features were better than the others. I'm not sure I agree that their quality is any better than the others, but certainly not worse. Our biggest issue had to do with one of the slides. Misaligned and out of square, and Jayco really fought fixing it correctly. We're past it now, and Jayco will stay at the top of my list when the time comes.

I rescued ours!
it is a 2001 Kiwi 17a that was sitting neglected in the adjacent RV storage yard where our sign company moved to in June of 2013. I noticed it looked like a pretty good little trailer so I inquired about its status and by May of this year we were the new owners.

Checked out several brands at several dealerships. They all look good when your shopping new. Wanted a hybrid and settled on ordering the Jayco 17Z after reading comments on this site, exploring the Jayco site, the two year warranty and the unit just seemed to meet our needs. Oh and a great dealer in Southern RV in Richmond, VA.
So thanks to many of you for the information.
