Hello from AZ,

Hello from AZ,
We just picked up a new 2014 Jayco 26.5 RKS this week. After searching for about 6 months we decided on this model. Thanks to this forum I was able to find tons of info on MODs. I already upgraded the mattress the Denver mattress in this model was a full queen and was terrible from factory. Got some speakers coming in to replace stock speakers, also looking to do BBQ upgrade for outside.

Thank you for welcome everyone. We just got back today from a trip up north to munds park rv resort. Had a great time even though sat and sun there was a ton of rain (No leaks). Everything works great on RV so far only thing that we will need to do is look into a lift kit for it (It rides a little high at hitch and have 6 inch of clearance). We also took it out right after we bought it to Pleasant harbor to get everything dialed in.

We are in Phoenix. We bought it to take to put up north to get out of the heat in summer time. We want to start fishing cooler lakes rather than bass fishing these desert lakes in summer also.
