Smile 2011 Jayco Recon 39A Toyhauler

Hello everyone,
Scott & Patricia here from southern Ontario, near Niagara Falls.

Well we did it... We traded in our 2007 Keystone Raptor 37TS for a new Jayco. Nothing wrong with the Keystone, it's just that we liked the layout of the Jayco Recon better. Particularly the washrooms.

We won't be taking it out camping for a few months yet, ( a little busy) but it is in our driveway and we can see it.

We bought a 2011 F350 6.7 diesel dually in 2010, endless power for towing.

Our bikes are Yamaha Ventures, but they haven't been inside the trailer much. Our plan is to spend some time in Florida or other southern States during some of the winter months.

Thanks Sean,
I liked the Keystone it was good to us... The washroom was always a pain being in the bedroom. The Jayco is much newer and has some of the newer options which are great. It also has a 1/2 bath in the garage area and a seperate beverage fridge.

I've been through Saskatoon a few times... Only in the summer... lol.

Hi Scott and Patricia!

You got a great toy hauler! My husband and I were looking hard at a used Recon 40D (loved the idea of the half bath) and we also considered a new 39C.

In the end we decided to wait and see what the Seismic was all about. Our dealer got us some key information and we decided to order one of the first few Seismics to come out of the chute. We're excited!

Estimated ship date is March 26th.

Thanks everyone,

They made us a deal on the new Jayco we couldn't refuse ...
We traded in the Raptor at the same dealer we bought it from, it was already sold when we went back.

We ordered a couple of new Strato Deluxe cruisers to replace the touring bikes. We have done all our coast to coast riding and I have almost 200K kms on my bike. Time for some more relaxing trips.
