Are they Jayco clones or entirely different?

60/40 Similar floor plans with some differences and they are coming out of Topeka not Middlebury One is a Travel Star and the other is a Solstice. Roofs are flatter.

Here's the Solstice: http://www.grumbinesrv.com/rvs/new/s...model-solstice

I know you all don't want to hear this...but Open Range is a step up from Jayco. I looked at them and went with Jayco as less expensive as it would fit my needs. An example is the Open Range similar to mine, more expensive, but it was nicer and came with 16 inch tires and wheels...where I had to up grade mine my self. Open range actually has many rated for full timers. We should keep the forums separated.

Yes I looked at some of their TT`s online and they seem to be a higher end unit, and with the right options a true 4 season, full time capable RV. Heavier too. And of course with quality there is a price......

Since I was a Jayco owner when I joined this forum am I to be exiled since I bought an Open Range? J/K.

It would be cool to have a community mods page. There are many great minds out there and not all of them own a Jayco. Other than that I would say keep separate.

One doesn't have to own a Jayco to be a member of JOF, so everyone has the ability to post in the "Jayco Mods" forum, or any JOF forum for that matter.

I would venture to say that most "mods" are universal to all RV Manufactures products.

JOF has numerous members that don't own a Jayco product.

I am starting to realize a lot of trailers are a step up from Jayco.

Not an issues with quality just disappointing that they do not put the extra little things in their trailers that I have found on many others for the same price.
