Hello, I'm new to this forum but not to owning a Jayco. My girl friend and I have recently traded our 2007 Jay Flight 25 RKS in for a new 2012 Eagle Super Lite 308 RETS. This is our first Eagle travel trailer and can not wait to pick it up in the end of March from our dealer. Just curious, has anyone picked their's up yet? I have yet to see one in person and ordered it back when there was only a few pics floating around on the web.

Thank you all for the welcoming. No plans as of yet, 3rd weekend of May is a long way away before our provincial parks open here in northern Ontario. After reading some posts on here and Facebook I'm starting to get a little worried about trading in our 07 for the 2012 and all the potential issues people are having with the newer ones

Your bound to have some kind of warranty issue with any car/rv you purchase. It's just nice when you can have a two year warranty with an rv where you have the time to find them and fix them (some folks with other brands of rv's realize problems with their rv after a year and have to have the 'fix' done out of pocket). This is a Jayo specific forum. You won't find too much discussion on other rv brands problems here but a lot about Jayco.

Some of the recent topics here may concern parts or accessories that also may be installed on other rv brands (not just Jayco). I had problems with a "bad" lot of Dexter brakes installed during the time period my tt was built in 2009. As it turns out, many other brands of rv's for that period of time were also affected as Dexter provides their brakes to other rv companies beside Jayco, however, not many other Jayco owners had the same experience fortunately.

If anything, hopefully JOF is able to help keep you apprised of different issues that have come up with other owners so you know what to watch for. Not all rv brands have dedicated forums like JOF so you are on your own if you buy that particular brand. Hopefully this helps re-assure you, but you are definitely in the right place to keep in the know about your new Jayco or rv'ing in general

And remember, for each post there are about problems there are hundreds of owners without issues who do not post about their rigs because they are performing normally and as expected. Understandably someone having many and/or major problems is going to voice their concerns.
