New to Jayco and Toy Hauler

Looking for any advice on operations of a Talon 405T. Not new to camping but this is our first toy hauler. Excited to have a Jayco product.

Can't help you with your RV but welcome to the Jayco forum. I have an Octane 222SL and are enjoying the heck out of it! Toyhaulers rock!

Ours is a 2018 talon 413t. Very similar rigs im sure. Although, urs is upgraded in many ways over mine. I'll answer any questions you have if I know. Welcome to the forum. Lots of good info on here.

New to Toyhualers here as well. We have had our new Talon 335T for about 2 months now. So far we are loving it. We are anxiously awaiting for MN. To open things up so we can use it more.

Any issues with backing up with your short bed truck? I never had any issues with our last fifth wheel but the front cap on this one is a little different.

My last 5th wheel needed a slider hitch. I still have it but so far have not needed it. With the sides of the front cap cut in on the Talon there appears to be plenty of room. I have a pretty tight parking spot on the 4th of July. We will see if we need that slider or not.....

Ok my current camper is recessed pretty good waiting to see on the Talon. I have a curt slider so it won’t be an issue if needed was just curios. Have you camped in your unit much? Had any issues so far?

We have had it out 2 times and used it in the driveway a couple more times. Going north again this holiday weekend for 4 days. So far so good. Just a couple little adjustment issues and a few missing screws... 1 in the shower door latch and one outside on the fuel filler. Bathroom door and main entrance door needed stiker adjustments as well as the party deck railing works way better with a little WD 40 on the pivot points. So far golf cart loads easily, next up is mounting a re moveable Motorcycle wheel chock for the FJR.
How about you, have you had the 405T out yet?

No we pick it up on Wednesday and go camping on Thursday. We had a good bit of problems out of our Sandpiper, I know it won’t be perfect just hoping for a better quality unit from Jayco. We looked at some grand designs, Keystone Raptors, Heartland Road Warrior, and the Jayco. The new Talon’s appear to have stepped up their game from the previous models.

Good luck, hope all goes well with the pick up and maiden voyage. Our last one was a 2006 FR Wildcat. It was an exceptionally good camper for us. I can only hope the Jayco is as good. We looked at all the same ones you did and the new Talon won us over as well. Have fun!

How about you, have you had the 405T out yet?
We are also from MN,new to toy haulers and this forum. Have had an Adventurer truck camper for the past 10 years. Our inspection on a 335T is next week. Wondering if you used the PDI checklist posted on this forum and what type of slider hitch you have? Debating between the B&W Companion manual slider and the Pullrite automatic slider. Appreciate any advice. Thanks

Can you send me a link to that PDI? I made my own up, but will be taking our back to add somethings and want to make sure I hit them with everything we got.

Hi MFR560 - Try the link below to get the pdf file for the checklist. We are new to this forum so not exactly sure what is the best way to get you to the thread where we found it. If the link does not work, use the forum search tool and input 'PDI Checklist'. It is a detailed, 12 page list of items to inspect.

I didn't use a PDI other than the dealers list. We inspected the unit about a month prior and asked for a couple adjustments before delivery. Inspected all again when picked up. I use my original Reese hitch and manual slider I have had for years. Still looks and works great. Where in MN are you getting a 335T. We could not find one closer that 300 miles away in SD. So far very happy with our 335.

Up at my Daughters 40 acre hobby farm in Northern WI.
What a nice Holiday weekend. Day 4 in the Talon all great. Had a small glitch with the generator. Wife didn't turn off AC before starting Gen and it tripped a breaker on the Gen. Reset and all good. Live and learn ...Hope everyone is having a great Memorial Day weekend...

Look like a nice relaxing setting for the weekend. Thanks for the info on the hitch. Have you use the slider much? I am leaning towards the manual B&W.

We are not picking our 335 in MN, actually northern WI. About a 2 1/2 hour drive for us.

I use my slider pretty much once a year. So a dozen times give or take. Only needed for me on a really tight spot on the 4th of July. All other times not needed.
Are you buying from Link RV in Minong? I just drove past their today and seen one..
