New, potential owner

Hi everyone. My wife and I are in the early stages of planning to upgrade to a new trailer. We are looking hard at Jayco's so I thought I would join here and learn as much as I can!

We just bought a Jayco in May and are very happy. We have found this site to be incredibly helpful. If you post more details of what kind of trailer you're looking for, price range, etc., you will get lots of good, first-hand advice here.

Welcome to The Forum! What model(s) are you considering?

Take your time with your search to make sure you select the unit that best suits your needs. After all, the search is part of the fun! Don't "assume" some doohickey in the Jayco works just like the similar doohickey in your old trailer. These things and their systems are constantly being improved upon. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. You'll find the members here are super willing to help out a fellow RV'er whenever we can.

Enjoy your search and post pics of your new rig . . . even if it's not a Jayco!

Absolutely! I researched various brands of travel trailers and kept going back to Jayco. This site was instrumental in reaffirming my beliefs that the Jayco line is superior to most others and also a very good value. In the end we purchased a Whitehawk 28DSBH and have been happy campers since.
Good luck and welcome to the forum.

Very happy with my 27 day old Jayco. Joined the forum last month and have had several dozen of my questions answered by the forum membership. I'm sure you'll find this group very helpful as I have. Welcome!

I'm looking at the Jay Flight 267BHS. By spring I will have a 2.5 year old daughter and a 3 or 4 month old son. We have learned that a slide is a MUST for us. We usually do a winter trip down south every February for 2 weeks. I prefer not to have to clean up beds every morning and pack stuff away, so the bunks are a requirement. We need a minimum of a queen bed (I'm 6-04) and we demand a walkaround bed (so I can make it longer and so we don't have to crawl over each other at 2am when we need to use the potty!)

This floorplan looks to be a standard style amongst other manufacturers. I just keep hearing how the Jayco's are a better made trailer. Its worth it to me to spend a little more and have it last a little longer.

I've already read up on this model and everyone seems to like it. Going to Gettysburg RV show in 2 months, hopefully they have this model up there! Looking forward to it!

We currently have a 1998 Nash 22H camper. Its a nice old unit, but when we bought it from my wife's uncle, it had a small tear in the roof. I fixed the roof but the rotted wood had damaged the aluminum siding, resulting in little holes I didn't find for a long time. By the time I found them, we had extensive damage. I fixed the back corner by the bathtub and thought I was home free... This spring we found a soft spot in the front corner by the bed. I'm done repairing this thing. It was great (but small) and served us well for several years. Time to start over new!
