New 2015 Precept- Considering Purchase

Hi All,
I am considering the purchase of a new 2015 Precept. Does anyone have any pros or cons that they can share with me? Thank you.

Hi,

Welcome to the forum!

I bought a slightly used 2015 Precept 31UL and we think it is a great purchase. My unit has held up very well so far and I have put about 2000 miles on it in the last 4 months. I think with the new, you get a 2 year warranty, so make sure u take a note of that. Also, this forum is a great place as you can learn a lot about common issues / complaints that people have had. I would like to make a note; people do not come to forums to share their great experiences; they always come here when something is broken or not working. So reading between the lines, you will get an idea of the quality from Jayco. This is exactly what I did before I made my purchase.

My personal dislikes: a) The coach is a bit noisy (there is a solution to that https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/f3...9ur-34059.html) and b) There is very less space to walk between the sofa and the dining when the slideouts are closed (although it makes for a great space when it is open).

Other than that, I love the coach. A few minor things --> I would have liked it to be pre-wired for Solar (come on Jayco, it was so easy to do when making the coach). Also, I would have liked the driver and the passenger cabin to have more storage.

I think it really boils down to what you need. My one other recommendation would be not to confuse ur 'needs' with your 'wants'. Easy said than done. But thought I would still mention it.

Good Luck !!

Oh one more thing that I would like to mention. In case you ever have to sell your Jayco, (while it is still in warranty) the warranty does not transfer. So keep that in mind. IMHO, this SUCKS!

Thank you again. Yes.. That makes no sense at all about the warranty being non-transferrable.

Overall, we're very happy with our 31UL. As with any MH or camping trailer, you'll experience issues that either leave you or make you wonder why they didn't think of that when building it.

Our little issues luckily have all been handled by our dealer with no complaints. Furnace circuit board, rear window replacement, step motor replacement and various trim repairs.

Things I wish they would of included: Grill quick connect (newer one come with now), driver side lumbar support in seat, better view angle of camera screen, an exterior electric outlet on curb side other than by TV, plywood edge guards on bed platform, larger window by dinette, better carpet throughout and the frameless window on door like the new one now.

Steve

sbillions, there is a ton of information from Precept owners dating back since the model first came out in 2014 at the Precept Owners Group: https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/gr...%27+group.html

If you invest the time, you'll be able to read and probably find the answers to specific topics on this forum as you continue to do your research on the Precepts.

I think you'll find that in general, most everyone is mostly very happy with their Precepts. There will be things that break in any MH, regardless of size and cost. Forums tend to focus a bit more on the "bad" than the "good", so you have to keep that in mind.

And like Kaizer said, it really comes down to what works for your unique lifestyle and travel plans. It took us 6 months to find our Precept which has met our expectations and works perfect for the way we want to enjoy this life style.

Welcome on board! What model Precept are you interested in? Which floor plan is the right one for you and your family? We bought a 35UN, We love it, currently she is up at Jayco for an upgrade and some warranty work on the main slide gasket. We are changing the accordion door to the bedroom with the newer 2016's sliding wood door. Once the new door is installed, the 35UN floor plan is perfect for our needs!
