prospective jayco buyer

I am in the market for a new TT. My wife and I are new to the camping life. We had purchased our first TT from another manufacturer about 3 months ago. Due to the continued problem with the TT and the company which we purchased it from we are now looking for another. We like the Jay Flight 32 BHDS. Has anyone seen any major issues with this model? I have seen some other posts on the subject however the ones that I found were from a yr or two ago. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

No experience on this model but buying from Trailside in Grain Valley was a pretty good experience. I had some minor complaints about the process but overall they were a nice group to work with.

They have been very good to us so far. They understood our frustrations and helped us get out of our broken TT and into a new one. We are supposed to sign on the dotted line on sat.

Welcome to the JOF Bobcatmech! Your successful future in any new rv begins with a good dealer who takes care of you after the sale and follows through with warranty work that pops up along the way. One concern that has been mentioned here with members is of those who have a 'separate' room in the back, and whether or not the a/c cools it. Congrats on getting the new tt. Hope this experience is better than the previous

I don't have the model you are asking about, but I do have a 32 TSBH which is similar, except I don't have the outside kitchen, and instead have a huge bunkhouse. Haven't had any real issues with mine except a couple of minor things such as not being caulked around the tub faucet. Overall, I am very pleased with mine. I charcoal grill my food, and keep beer and soda on ice so I really did not want an outside kitchen. My bunkhouse is huge with 4 bunks and 2 trundle beds. It also has a fold down table, 2 small closets and 12 drawers for clothes or storage. I have 4 daughters, 3 of which are married, with 3 grandchildren and another on the way. It is not unusual for there to be 10 or 11 of us camping together. I needed the room!

We looked at the TSHB however it was a little larger then what we need at this time. We only have 2 boy's. 10 and 3 plus my wife and I. Im with you on the grill and ice. This unit has the large storge door for the outside kitchen however it was not ordered with one. It looks and feels better constructed then our first and from what I've read we shouldn't see anything out of the ordinary as we did on our first one. We had structural issues on our second trip. Had less then 200 miles on it and the partician wall between the living room and the bunk house bowed. Then the list just got longer on issues and our dealer was draging there feet. Can't wait to get my new TT and be able to enjoy it instead of worrying about what will brake next.

I can't speak to this particular model, but I can speak about Jayco quality. This is our 3rd Jayco trailer that we bought new. The first was a pop-up, the second a 17ft hybrid, and now the X20E hybrid. Overall construction of Jayco's is solid. We never had any issues related to construction on any of them, although we've only had the X20E for a few months so that remains to be seen. We owned the pop-up (a '93 1208) and the hybrid ('03 Kiwi 17a) for 10 years each.

I will say that the finish work on Jaycos is sloppy. On each trailer I had to fix small things like glue interior trim, readjust doors, etc. Nothing major, just annoying.
