I will start this one out....actually there was a couple ways. First, being a newby I had a lot of questions. I found another forum that is centered around recreational vehicles (name will not be mentioned) and I guess I irritated 2-3 barracudas on that forum that let me know in quite a few words that my simple yes or no question had been asked weekly for years and that I should search for the answer rather than waste their time. Never did get my question answered, so I went to Google and found JOF. We have a different breed of fish here. If you ask a question, you will get a friendly answer. We have great members here.

After buying our used 5er, I had some questions. Tried to Google some answers, and one reference search turned out to be an answer to a question on JOF. Liked what I saw, and the rest is history.

When we purchased our first TT back in 2008, I was rather overcome by all the questions that I was not able to answer. I became a member of a different forum for RV's (and I will not name that forum, but we all know which one it is). While some of my questions had been answered, I realized that others had been criticized by other members and I became uncomfortable by what other members where saying to people like me who where new and simply wanted to get an answer. I understand that the question I had may have been asked before, but why not simply answer the question and help the person instead of saying "Find it yourself!"
That was enough for me, so I searched the google for Jayco Travel Trailers Questions. I guess I did it on the right day, because I am here now and could not be happier with all members here.
Thank You everyone for making this place much better than the other forum that we all know about.

I was sitting on a beach in Virginia and this crab boat full of drunken crab fishermen went by and on the back of the boat was a JOF bumper sticker.

Pretty much our story/experience as a newbie at others rv forums trying to ask questions. Many members answering our questions wound up either flaming each other, arguing, derailing the thread, or simply insulting anyone who didn't agree with them; including insulting us who were asking a question in the first place LOL.

The Jayco Owners Forum (JOF) was only a month old when I first found it on Google. There was only one other regular member when I joined. So with the few of us that had become members here in the beginning, the goal was to make JOF the "safest" and most family friendly rv forum on the net. Glad to hear the positive comments over the last few years regarding JOF remaining family friendly

I owned another brand and had all kind of troubles and was at factory and dealership more than I had it. So got on google and for rvs and Jayco came up and so done research and looked at this forum and that was a breaking deal for me. So now I own a Jayco.
