Cup Holder Issue - Yes 1st World Problems

May sound silly but I am struggling with the cup holders Jayco installed in our 2019 Alante 26x.

I use two cups a Contigo 20 oz travel mug for coffee and a Yeti Rambler for ice water.

Of all the vehicles I have been in never had a problem using the stock cup holders. The ones in the Jayco look like they are for designed for a can of beer or a big gulp cup.

Anyone else struggle with the cup holders and found a workaround or solution? I am open to any and all ideas except going to a big gulp cup.

Thank you,

Ryan

Try a PVC coupling for an insert.

I don't have your model but the Yeti cup has a little play but wont tip over in this.

They list the dimensions so you can see if it will fit inside your existing holder and how your cups will fit.

Looking at your picture again you want to make sure that 2.5" bottom will fit tight in your Alante cup holder. My issue was the bottom of all my mugs would not fit in the Sprinter cup holders. I guess Europeans like drinking coffee from a thimble. Anyway if it will or you can make it you are good to go.

Not the most sophisticated solution, but we found a couple coffee mugs that we had that fit, and lined them with a paper towel and I put my 30oz yeti in it while I travel... agree though, not the cup holder I need for my use but we make it work.

Ryan A,
I had the same complaint. My fix was to replace the small plastic insert with a larger S/S cup/mug holder from a boat.
Should be able to find the suitable S/S insert from West Marine.
Here's what I did.
The top piece that you see is just a snap on trim piece.
Carefully pry it off.
Under that is the mounting ring that is screwed into the console, and is the actual bucket that holds your cup/mug/drink.
Remove screws and remove ring (no longer used)
Test fit the new S/S cup holder into the trim ring. Satisfied with fit?
Run a bead of clear silicone on the underside if the flange of the new S/S holder.
Insert into the trim ring from the top.
let cure overnight.
I cut a small piece of wood and painted black to cover up the finger loop of the trim ring.
run a bead of clear silicone around the trim ring, set into place on console.
let it cure overnight, done.

Ryan,

We have the same problem. We both use Yeti or Ozark Trail cups, they work so well to keep your drinks cold but flop around in the cup holder.

Been looking for options and your thread has been a wealth of information.

I had originally though about using a Dremel to enlarge the smaller well in the bottom but figured by the time it was large enough I'd probably end up with a big hole.

I may look around for the SS cup holder that Finemess mentioned. Seems like an easy fix.

Thanks for starting this thread.

Amazon has those SS cup holders. Not sure how they compare with other sites.

I will measure the one I took pictures of,,,
Sure looks the same to me though.
Strange thing in our coach, The drink holders in the arms of our tri fold sofa bed hold the same cups perfectly, like the one I installed.

I received my pair of cup holders from Amazon yesterday. I did a quick test fit with an Ozark Trail cup and it is a tight fit in the bottom. I assume the Yeti will fit the same.

I'm waiting on my seat belt lengtheners to arrive and I'll do both mods at the same time. The seat belt gadget moves the attachment point down the wall 12" and keeps the belt from rubbing my neck raw.

We have a couple of travel mugs that we have the same issue... we solved it by using one of our Beer can Coozies over the base of the travel mug...

Trial fit tonight

Did a trial fit tonight in the coach. I used the small rubber flaps as a temporary filler for the thumbhole. I'll be looking at Home Depot tomorrow for ideas for the filler but liking what I see so far.

Also added 12" seat belt extensions to the wall mount so that the seatbelts don't rub our necks. I'll put the original factory bolt cover back on the top and look for something to cover the hardware on the bottom.

Get a couple of 3" thin wall PVC pipe couplings. Paint them black and insert in the factory cup holders. You will think the RV came that way.

Problem solved

I had the same problem. I took the cupholder to the store to get a mug that fit. I found a 24oz mug called "COLD 1" that fits. I still have ice cubes in it the next morning.

I went to a coffee house and grabbed a handful of the cardboard coffee cup hand protectors and keep them in the RV. They donít fit a Yeti 30 oz tumbler perfectly but they do hold them in place.

Cup Holder Issue

I have the same problem in my PRECEPT 29v and found it frustrating to say the least. I try using a large plastic cup from McDonald's or a 32 oz styrofoam cup from Huck's gas station. Cut 2/3rds off the top and slip your mug into the remaining bottom part. These two types of cups fit in the holder as the bottom diameter is as small as the JAYCO cup holder. Looks stupid but is better than spilling coffee or soda while driving.
Funny thing is the cup holders on the couch are different and the mug fits perfectly.

I had saved the stainless steel holders to my Amazon shopping cart and then saw black plastic ones in the boating section of my local Walmart. Not as snazzy but lots cheaper.
