Open Range

Now that Open Range is owned by Jayco would it make any sense to add Open Range categories for discussion? We have Jayco Trailer, Jayco Fifth Wheel, etc. Or maybe in some way make it evident that Open Range is welcome to be included? Since Open Range has so far retained its own branding and doesn't even appear on the official Jayco website I think most people wouldn't realize they are now Jayco too. I wonder if Open Range owners would participate here if there was something to signify "them too" on this site. Or would that even be desired at this stage? Just wondering.

We have the Starcraft Family, here why not the other "kin folk"?

Edit:

They also have their own forum however.

Big difference is that StarCraft are Jayco products rolling out of a Jayco factory.. identical trailers with a different name.

Open Range has nothing to do with Jayco other than Jayco now being the parent company; much like Entegra Motorcoaches. I'd vote for adding Entegra's before adding OR :-)

ENTEGRA rolls out of the same building as the SENECAS, GREYHAWKS and PRECEPT. Starcraft has a seperate faciity in Topeka.

this is a Jayco owners site. It should stay that way.

That being said anyone can ask any question they want but they likely just wont get the info they want.

Like going to a GM forum to ask about issues with your Cummins. Somebody there likely will answer your question eventually but you would be better suited at a Cummins forum

If there is enough interest I suppose we could have a sticky thread dedicated to Open Range like the "Starcraft Owners Roll Call". But that would be about it. Since they have an Open Range forum, that would be the best place to ask questions specific to the brand, and as long as that is operating owners would likely join that forum to get info and not this one....

In the case of Starcraft, there was no forum for the owners so they asked to join this one. Many of the lines and models by Jayco and Starcraft had near identical dimensions and specs, just different graphics, interior decor and some other minor differences. For example the Jayflight and Autumn Ridge lines were pretty much the same. Have not checked lately to see if that is still the case.

Was just curious. Didn't know many details about Open Range aside from the Jayco purchase of them.

Just an FYI STARCRAFT is back in the FW business effective with the 2015 model year.
