New to Jayco

My wife and I just bought a 2014 375 BHFS. After looking at dozens of trailers this seemed to be the one that had the best configuration for our needs. We looked at all the others, like the Montana and other popular units, but the 375 had the interior we wanted (although a working service cover on the stove and and outside cooking would have been nice). We bring it home and we hear our friends describe it as a nice "entry level unit". I was kind of shocked. Did I buy a good product or did I make a mistake?

Any body have any feelings about there extended warranty plan?

John

You bought a good product. Your friends are jealous. Seriously, Jayco built their business building pop-up campers, obviously pop-ups aren't luxury accommodations. Where as Montana is a separate name that only offers higher end 5vers, the the Jayco name is spread across both lower end and high end trailers makes some people think all their products are "entry level".

To not look at Jayco or consider it entry level because of the name is like a BMW owner dismissing Cadillac because of its past reputation. They really don't fully comprehend what they are missing.

That said you have to live with what you bought, no one else. You obviously like the floor plan, just enjoy and don't worry about what the "Joneses" have to say.

Entry level?? Hardly! I agree with Chuck. Either your friends are extremely jealous or have zero knowledge above RV's.

That's kind of what I was thinking. I don't really consider my 33 ft behemoth of a bunkhouse with every convenience I could ever want "entry level". It may not be "top of the line" or "luxurious" (well, to me it is, but I'm coming from a tent!), but it's certainly not "entry level".

Short of a luxury motor coach, you bought the best. Nothing entry level about it. We've looked at Montana's and everything else. Some seem prettier up front but don't have it all. In the end, I've owned other brands and it'll be only Jayco for me in the future. Congrats, you bought a great trailer!

Ha ha ha... I guess you could argue that a $500,000 motorhome is luxury, therefore a $25K trailer is entry level. Of course I would argue that the Rockwood Roo's and KZ Spree's are the entry level...

Unless he is making payments for you or putting cash towards your gas and site fee's, I probably wouldn't really care what he has to say. As long as YOU like your camper, it doesn't really matter.

That 5er is not entry level. My new White Hawk might be considered entry level, but not an Eagle Premier. I guess if your friend has a Prevost conversion motorhome then yours would be entry level.

Entry level is the level you can afford to enter. LOL.
