The idea didn't get much support.
No wonder ! Are we not buying something NEW ?

Should we pay an extra to have our new toy repaired before delivery ?

I personnaly dont think so , but hey its just me

So will Thor service Jayco's for warranty work? That may be a good thing as the # of locations will increase.

Nothing has been published other than saying that nothing has changed yet.

Some of the many competing companies acquired by Thor have had some quality problems of their own [ Montana for example] JMHO- DD

Stopped at my local dealer yesterday to ask about some issues we had camping last weekend and they don't have any PUPs in the showroom or even new ones in stock. When we bought ours last fall they pretty much indicated they didn't plan on ordering more except when customers wanted them.

From what I'm reading, 18 pages of worried people since July 1st, I'd say that Jayco has a "cult following" too. Don't put the cart before the horse. It's happened...see how it plays out. Hopefully, everything will be okay. All I can tell you is that before we purchased our Melbourne, we never paid attention to the Jayco brand. Now that we have one, we realize that they're everywhere. Another thing I've noticed, it seems that there are more Airstreams out there than ever before. Maybe it's because of Thor or despite it, but it's a fact.

Airstreams, you love them or hate them. They have a cult following from yuppies that keeps them selling.

My uncle had one that he fulltimed in for years and I could have purchased it many years ago. I felt like I was in a coffin every time I went in it.

On the flip side, Tiffin has that same cult like following, problems and all, yet they still have never sold out to any major player. That may change in the next decade with the 3rd generation. Will be watching their sidekick Vanleigh as well to see if they'll sell out. If Bob Tiffin ever gets out of the picture, very likely things could change.
